Keri Hilson Should Do More Songs Like 'I Like' And Ditch The Boring Ho Act

Keri Hilson's new song "I Like" is actually a pretty decent synth jam! So naturally, it's from the soundtrack of German film Zweiohrküken, and not her U.S. album In A Perfect World.



Keri's got that pop touch that's pretty evident in cuts like "The Way I Are" and "Energy"—but more often than not, it gets repressed.

It's a shame she's marketed as a R&B cookie-cutter hooker with interchangeable Rapper X stapled to her thong. Sometimes when I flip on the radio and hear "Turnin' Me On," it makes me want to put a nail gun up to my forehead. I think it's the way Lil Wayne sounds like a rubber-voiced pimp on the track.

So why do the Germans get "I Like," and we get snoozefests like "Knock You Down"? Fuck this, I'm digging out the Scooch CD.

    Great jam. Ya know, I love her portions of "Knock You Down," but yeah, the rapper-stapled-to-thong phenomenon does seem to be holding back some great pop instincts here.

    I don't like Keri Hilson (although I think she is bloody attractive!) but for some odd reason, I like "I Like".

    Much better than the other singles.

    Am I the only one who read the name of the player as "Semen Tube"?
