Keri Hilson is one of those writers who knows that perfect pop formula but she does not over do it. Keri has been producing, writing, making demos and being a video girl for over twelve years and now this album is meant to show what she can do.
I think she delivered the perfect pop and r&b album. Subsequently, don't be deceived by the title In A Perfect World... she does not mean that life is perfect... in fact quite the opposite. This album opens up with some fun songs you can listen to in the club but then it slowly shifts over to baby making music and heavy relationship music. I think that Keri did a great job keeping her guest list short because we know she could of done what Timbaland or Diddy did and include a guest on every single song. I feel she shined brighter on those songs that did not have any guests like "Slow Dance" and "Make Love".
Furthermore, with heavy production from Timbaland and Polow Da Don In A Perfect World… is a stellar album. With all the ladies in r&b like Beyonce, Alicia Keys, and Ciara, where was Keri going to fit in? The answer is that she is not trying to fit in, she is trying to make her own spot and that is something that was very constant in her album. There is not one song on her album that sounds manufactured or recycled and that is such a hard thing to do when everyone is doing the auto tune thing.
The album consist of 14 tracks and the album is one of those you can just press play to. My final ruling is that she deserves that dime diva status! Check it out here:
