They don’t make them like Keri Hilson anymore. A Jane of all trades who started as a songwriter in her early teens, the 28 year-old hitmaker has written some of your favorite songs, and you may not even know it. But ever since her emergence as Timbaland’s partner in crime in songs like “Way I Are” and the HEAVILY underrated “Miscommunication,” (both off Timbo’s smash “Shock Value“) Ms. Keri has finally been getting the spotlight she deserves. I got a chance to sit down with the singer-songwriter—whose album No Boys Allowed is available in stores today and digitally tomorrow—and talk about her perfect man, her controversial new video, and even sing with her (embarrassing..). Check it out.
