Keri Hilson's 1st single "Energy"



Drum roll please: After all the anticipation, after all the "promo" singles and leaks, and after a bunch of changes, according to Amazon Keri Hilson's first single will be called "Energy" and will be released on May 27th. Here's a clip:



Said to be written by Tank and the producer? Well it obviously isn't Timbaland so it must be Polow right? Well interestingly enough, Polow recently talked with Rhapsody and along with saying he got the first single he said some interesting things to say about what could have been a The Dream and Keri Hilson collabo.

So is this it? After all the wait is this really the first single? It's too short of a snippet for me to judge yet but finally Keri Hilson is coming! Props to all those who sent me info on this.

Update: Look as thought the track is produced by The Runaways which seems an odd choice for a single when you have Polow, Timbo, and Danja on your album. Maybe this is another promo single.

  2. From the sound of the lyrics and the beats, i believe this was written by 'The-Dream' and produced by 'Tricky Stewart'.

  9. I really like the clip! However, I've got a feeling that the song was produced by The Runawayz (well according to the ASCAP database

    http://www.ascap.com/ace/search.cfm?requesttimeout=300&mode=results&searchstr=351537830&search_in=i&search_type=exact&search_det=t,s,w,p,b,v&results_pp=30&start=1 )

    Strange though and maybe a bit ironic that it apparently wasn't written by Keri!

  10. Sounds awesome. And forever who dislikes Pop music is a moron, simply because Pop is an embodiment of anything popular, and it usually is a mix of two or more genres.

    The beat is good, lyrics are hot, but beat needs more percussion... whatever I didn't produce it so whatever...

    Horrible... Looks like Nicole Scherzinger. Keri is nothin without Timbaland.

    And I don't like Polow Da Don... I hope that Timbaland or Danja will get good Keri's tracks.

  12. Polow da don is the future....

  13. what a stupid first single choice! sounds like something rihanna or jordan sparks would sing. aaliyah would never release some shit like this.

    ReplyDelete
  14. well aaliyah ain't fucking releasing it, keri is. SMASH!!

    ReplyDelete
  15. im feelin it.. sucks for whoever isnt.

    ReplyDelete
  16. It's good, not great. I don't know how much of a hit it'll be in the over-saturated ballad market right now.

    Wish she would've gone with something more up-tempo.

    ReplyDelete
  17. fucking stupid percussion used and she sounds like nicole scherzinger

    ReplyDelete
  18. i don't feel this song.. it sounds quite average to me, but it feels like somethin is missing on most of the tracks I've been listenting to in those last 6 months... maybe I've been listening to too much music :D or maybe it's just that the artists don't feel their music anymore (i hope not), or maybe 2cc8 is just starting off bad, i don't know.. anyways, as to keri i still hope we can except some awesome tracks from her in the future... i badly need some good music again. and wouldn't mind good ol timbo and danja helping me with this one.
    btw, thank u 4 this blog. i luv coming here. great job, my appreciation!

  19. this has to be another promo i mean you got Timbo,Danja,and Polow on your album. just good to hear some new Keri

    ReplyDelete
  20. disappointing... i expected better

    ReplyDelete
  21. And is May27th also the release day of the album In a perfect world?

    ReplyDelete
  22. THE RUNNERS?? lol~!!

    ReplyDelete
  23. polow is awesome

    and to the person atop of me the runners are awesome

    but it sounds like tricky stewart to me it reminds me of leona lewis: bleeding love i think its a good - ok from what ive heard i agree that there shoulda been something more upbeat and rhythmic would satisfy more hope its a bangin album :D

    ReplyDelete
  24. ive been a Timi fan rite from time and i can tell u that even though he is the best, u have to understand their are others as well. I like Oak, Bryan cox, the runners, just blaze, dark child etc. This song is fortunately hot. Get wit music and not what u think it is.

    ReplyDelete
  25. i agree with the two guys on top i think your covers blown would serve as a good single as well i hope that ones on the album

    ReplyDelete
  26. ...or girl sry haha

    ReplyDelete
  27. would expect something more upbeat from tim/danja for her main single...something as BIG as say promiscuous in terms of impact on the mainstream and innovation with the sounds.

    this aint it - its a generic kind of ballad record with some synthy production, nothing special.

    ReplyDelete
  28. awful, i agree with the guy who compares her to nicole. I disagree because it's a pop song but because it's a souless pop joint.

  29. This is a good track from what I can tell. I'm a producer my self, but I would have chosen "Covers Blown" (also known as "Time Is Right") as the single.

    But be reassured everyone, that pic looks a lot like a promo single cover. I don't think this will be the official single. Nope, I don't think so.

    ReplyDelete
  30. this cover art looks like it was made by a child

    ReplyDelete
  31. PLEASE..let it be another promo single 'cause I don't like it!

    ReplyDelete
  32. & Keri Hilson could do with a better logo... but whatever floats her boat.

    but anyway who the hell are the runaways? and how did they place on an album that was supposed to be strictly a tim, danja, and polow affair?

    ReplyDelete
  33. I thought The Runaways were a band???

    ReplyDelete
  34. The Runaways haven't produced much. They did "Love Like This" (Natasha ft Sean Kingston) and Leona Lewis - "Take A Bow". The main member of the production team is Ryan Tedder

    ReplyDelete
  35. the runawayz are composed of various top writers including ryan tedder from timbo camp..and rico love who wrote throwback for ushers last cd..they all have credits and huge publishing deals seperately..i guess due to the sucess of putting writers together like the clutch its catching on with other writers

    ReplyDelete
  36. Imma keep it short: I can't explain how dissapointed I am...

    ReplyDelete
  37. keri's album shoulda been a strictly club and bedroom affair. who really cares for keri's ballads?

    and ryan tedder's fine on his own, why the need to team up? to get placements?

    ReplyDelete
  38. oooooh thats kwl


    btw stfu big ass!

    ReplyDelete
  39. this song is a smash. the runaways produced and wrote it. they also did "love like this" for natasha bedingfield and also did "take bow" "yesterday" & "the first time i saw your face" on Leona Lewis. and many more things. they are the SHIT!!! this song is CRAZY!!!

    ReplyDelete
  40. wtf?!

    DISSAPOINTED!

    ReplyDelete
  41. Big Ass? Not really, 40 pounds is light weight. I bet your moms ass is bigger

    ReplyDelete
  42. Congrads, Keri You deserve nothing but good things, I like the new single. I think your off too a great start.

    Energy is a hot joint.... :)

    Much success

    ReplyDelete
  43. you are right my mom has a big ass you would envy her ass...so big ive seen your pics big ass go to hell!!! your ass should be our moon hahahahaha

    ReplyDelete
  44. blabla you among my biggest dickriders ever here, I appreciate that. thanks for all the attention

    ReplyDelete
  45. so what if she got tim and pollow?
    maybe she decided to give a try to some other producers since "scream" with timbo didn't even make it to billboard's 100...tim ain't gon make top 10 hits forever you know...

    ReplyDelete
  46. ^^Because Tim,Danja,and Polow would give her something better than Energy thats why. Tim probably stay making hits like Dre and he near 50 years old.

    ReplyDelete
  47. This song is whack!! What the f**k was Keri thinkin'!!? I always liked how Keri came different and original with her material. "Energy" is too safe. It sounds like something written for a 16 year old or a white girl group signed to Disney.

  48. this just in: big ass has gonorrhea

    Full song

    ReplyDelete
  51. produced by The Runaways

    ReplyDelete
  52. This song is a smash! Period. All haters will be loving it after a few more listens. The Runaways work with Timbaland...he was involved. The lyric is sick!!! "Having nightmares from sleeping with the enemy...how did we reverse the chemistry...i don't want us to be the end of me." That's nutz!
