Still hot from the Internet-killing, bandwidth-shattering success of yesterday’s Top 40 Albums of 2010 list (including a most major of giveaways, in which I’m giving away ALL TEN ALBUMS that made the Top 10 of the list–you still have time to enter up until January 2!), I now present MuuMuse’s Top 50 singles of 2010.
There were a lot of good songs released during the year. A lot of them didn’t end up making the list. It’s entirely unjust and profoundly disturbing to think about, but what can you do?
I don’t feel like explaining my choices…SO I WON’T. Why? Because I am such a fucking rebel. GO TIME!
Miss KERI Baby–look what you gone did!
Keri Hilson is breaking out the big guns (literally) for “The Way You Love Me,” the third single off of her upcoming sophomore studio release, No Boys Allowed. (WATCH)
Backed up by a bad ass crew of bitches including JoJo, Dirty Money‘s Dawn and Faith Evans, Miss Keri Baby thugs her way through a most scandalous, swagga-riffic covert operation.
A little bit CiCi, some parts Gaga/Beysus “Telephone,” the video for “The Way You Love Me” finds Keri going harder and grittier than ever before, slithering up against a vault’s open door and growling some truly filthy come-ons in the process: “I got that kind of pussy that keep you off the streets,” she brags.
Is it a very sexy upgrade to her No Boys Allowed image as of late? Well, yes. But I had no doubt that Miss Keri Baby was really a dirty bird underneath just waiting to spread her wings and grind.
“This ain’t no pretty girl rock,” Hilson snarks during the video’s extended introduction. You got that right.
No Boys Allowed will be released on December 14. (iTunes)
You know when you totally love a song, but then you’re all like “Oh man, what if this song were sped up with some BLAZING BEATS for when I’m working on my fitness and/or getting roofied on the dance floor?”
This is why UK dance group Cahill are FANTASTIC. Because Cahill answers that lingering question by taking the songs that you love, speeding them up to near Alvin and The Chipmunks proportions, and then shoving some beats STRAIGHT up their bass!
Case in point? Their most amazelicious remix of Mariah Carey‘s “Obsessed” from last year. (Who else had fun attempting to sing this one as fast as they could to keep up before getting asthma? I know I did!)
Now, we’ve got Miss Keri Baby‘s deliciously empowering new single, “Pretty Girl Rock.”
Totally fun and fabulous, right? I wonder what would happen if we put a little pep into Hilson’s pretty girl step… (LISTEN)
Conclusion: EVEN. MORE. AMAZING.
YAY! Time for new Keri Hilson!
The video for “Pretty Girl Rock” has just debuted, Miss Keri Baby’s second single from her upcoming sophomore album, No Boys Allowed. (WATCH)
With a concept similar to the iconic Pepsi Generation commercial by Godney, the underrated songstress cycles through the decades to pay tribute to some of the finest leading ladies in the industry: Donna Summer, Janet Jackson, TLC–they’re all here. (And fabulously spot-on, no less!)
I absolutely adore this clip.
On a side note, that opening lyric (“My name is Keri, I’m so very / Fly, oh my, it’s a little bit scary”) has been stuck firmly on repeat in my brain for several hours now. Make it stop. MAKE IT STOP!!!
“Pretty Girl Rock” was released on October 12. (iTunes)
Miss Keri Baby just unveiled the album cover to her upcoming sophomore effort, No Boys Allowed, on her official website.
Here now is the mathematical formula for creating a No Boys Allowed:
I thank you for your time.
No Boys Allowed will be released on December 21. (iTunes)
