US r&b songstress Keri Hilson's debut album 'In A Perfect World' has disappeared from the Aussie release schedule for the time being - presumably it'll re-appear early in the new year - but the singer's star is most definitely on the rise, with guest vocal spots on tracks by Timbaland and on the latest single by Chris Brown. Solo-wise, however, her debut single 'Energy' failed to find favour at Australian radio. As such, it didn't trouble the top 50 ARIA charts. The story was a little different across the Tasman, however, where the single peaked at No.2 on the official RIANZ chart.
'Energy' behind her and 'In A Perfect World' in the pipeline, Keri has just released the video for her second solo effort 'Return The Favour' (the track title loses the 'U' from 'Favour' in the US market). Timbaland 'returns the favour' for Keri appearing on the track in guest vocal mode and in the clip, which is extraordinarily polished and stylish.
