"Sexpot of the Week" : Keri Hilson
Keri Hilson is R&B's most rising star right now. She's unique in that even though she is undoubtedly beautiful and sexy, she has a chill, B-girl quality about her. She rocks boyish outfits, big hoops, lots of gold chains, and similar fare. Not to say she doesn't push the sexy kitten envelope--she certainly shows skin from time to time (ie her new sexually over the top video in which she sells her R&B filled soul), but overall she has done a great job of being a cool sexy. She's been behind the music scene for years writing for other people and when her first album was released in 2009, her fanbase snowballed. Better yet, her new album debuted with higher than projected sales, no doubt prompted by her engaging Twitter marketing and banter. Her talent will be what keeps her around for a while, but being that we'll be seeing so much of her, it's a great thing she's easy on the eye.
