Keri Hilson’s “Turnin’ Me On” Remix
Dissing Beyonce and Ciara or Nicole of PCD?
Keri Hilson now deemed ‘Miss Keri baby’, has released her first album ‘In a Perfect World’. While she is a new recording artist she is known for her musical writings. If you haven’t heard her music you’d have to living under a rock somewhere. Her hit ‘Turnin Me on” featuring Lil’ Wayne grew to be a ridiculously huge anthem. Just as her new release ‘Knock you Down’ Featuring Neyo and Kanye West, is a hit, drama stirs around a song not featured on her album. The Turnin’ Me On Remix with T-Pain and Lil’ Wayne has become the cause for interrogation. She begins her verse by admitting that she “ain’t tryna start no mess”.
A clear indicator that whatever bars she’s about to spit will be offensive to someone! The question is, who is she offending? Now, Ms. Hilson openly admitted that she was referring to artists in general, but let’s look at the facts shall we? She says “she” throughout the entire verse! Not ‘ya’ll ‘or ‘they’ which would be targeting a general audience of current singers, but a specific artist that she has some sort of feelings about. Though she doesn’t state names the buzz is that she’s referring to ‘Queen’ Beyonce and hit maker Ciara because of the lyrics. But, they are heavy weights and veterans that she quite literally can’t touch yet, right? Well the other thought is that Keri is coming at Nicole Scherzinger of PCD. It does make sense and Nicole is a better match for Keri to come at but why do we all think she’s talking to these artists, and who is she talking about for crying out loud?
Could it be Beyonce?
In this bar she makes reference to one of Beyonce’s megahits ‘To the Left’, the bar states ” yo’ vision cloudy if you think that you the best, you can dance you can sing but need to move it to the left”. Now we all know Beyonce has said she has been “the number one Diva in the game” (from ‘Im’a Diva’ off of I Am Sasha Feirce album). Which quite frankly is true! But she has never downed her contenders by saying she was better than them or the best in game. Besides so many have said that foe her why would she need too! Keri goes further to say, “she need to go have some babies, she need to sit down she fadin” (or fake depending on where you cop the lyrics). We all know Beyonce to be private and a role model not to mention her stuff is hotttttt! Maybe Keri should take her own advice and “check the credits”! LOL… Anyway if she is talking about B, she’s scarily close in age, 26 to Beyonce’s age of 27, so if she feels B should cool out shouldn’t she?…
Maybe it’s Ciara?
Keri seemingly comes for Cee Cee by saying, “go ahead and tell them folks how long I been writing your songs, I been puttin’ you on, just check the credits…” WOW…So what you wrote someone’s songs! Is that how you feel about all the work you’ve done over the years Keri?… I sure hope not!
Or is it really Nicole?
“To the Left, to the Left”, is a famous and almost religious saying that many artists have borrowed because it’s so hot! So Ms. Keri baby, could very well be chopping at someone else’s block. Keri coming at Nicole makes the most sense because Nicole is 30 (“she need to go have some babies, she need to sit down…”), has referred to herself as the best and has many a song written by Keri. Not to mention in the remix Keri says, “them other chicks aint even worth my time to talk about”, the other chicks of PCD maybe?
Either way it’s a hot topic raising eyebrows and hindering people from buying Keri’s album, or so the public says. Bottom line Keri may be an established writer but all of these women, Beyonce, Ciara and Nicole have proven to be entertainment powerhouses. Besides beef hurts both artists (or all) and if she is dissin’ it’s not smart for her very new image. She may want to rethink the next remix she puts out!
