ChokLit Fresh: Keri Hilson’s Last Stand – Knock You Down Video with Ne-Yo & Kanye

I say this is Keri’s last stand, because this is her last BIG push before the release of her album. I will def get out and support Keri – she has been working hard for this! But let’s talk the video. Of course she looks great – this is probably the best I’ve seen her look in a video. And the video is ALL Keri this time; no Beyonce/Rihanna/Ciara comparisons in this video, directed by Chris Robinson.  The video is stylish and very different, as it tells an engaging story of a relationship gone wrong. Ne-yo’s appearance is unecessary and forgettable..why is he in this song, I wonder? Kayne (with his pre-mullet haircut) steals the show with his over-exaggerated outbursts, comical references to woman -beaters (no, CB was not mentioned!) and leather gloves paired with his jean jacket.  He is the true Madd Rapper in this clip! So emotional, but it makes for a great video!

The song is written by Kevin Cossom (yep, I stay ahead of the curve!) and produced by Danja. What do ya’ll think of the Beat by the way? I don’t want to say Danja is over-rated..but this could have easily been a second-rate Polow beat…just sayin! Watch the vid!!

Vodpod videos no longer available.
