Listen To Keri Hilson “Lose Control” With Nelly

Dec 22nd, 2010 // 6 Comments

Sure, Keri Hilson’s just-released No Boys Allowed landed on our Worst Album Cover Art Of 2010 roundup, but surely there’s something to be said for the old adage that you can’t judge a book—or in this case, record—by the cover? Case in point: Miss Keri’s Nelly-featuring synth jam “Lose Control/Let Me Down.” Listen below.

Hilson wisely buddied up with Midas-touch production team Stargate on this particular track. In addition to Pittsburgh rapper Wiz Khalifa’s current hit “Black And Gold”, Stargate also twiddled the knobs on four of this year’s chart-topping singles: Rihanna’s “Rude Boy”, “Only Girl (In The World)” and “What’s My Name”, and Katy Perry’s “Firework.”

So it’s not surprising that “Lose Control” starts right off the bat with an instantly catchy pop keyboard riff that reverberates while Keri weaves her lusty lyrics throughout the song.

Nelly appears two-thirds of the way in, rapping and making the off-color reference to “the way you’re shaking your anus.” (Silly Nelly—this isn’t a Ke$ha tune!)

After about three-and-a-half minutes, “Lose Control” segues into the forlorn slow jam “Let Me Down”, which seems to indicate that the hook-up described at the beginning of the two-part track didn’t pan out into anything other than a really great listen.

    The reason it looks a lot like rude boy and what’s my name is because it is produced by the same producer!
    A lot of times artists get accused op stealing other artists stuff, but most of the time songs look a-like it is because the same producer is behind them… So don’t go accusing her of stealing from Rihanna, ‘caus they are not that alike…
