Keri Hilson delivers a dope debut

"Miss Keri Baby" really came through on her debut album, "In a Perfect World."

Simply put: the album is hot like fire from start to finish.

It shouldn't be much of a surprise considering the powerhouse executive producers, Timbaland and Polow Da Don. Not to mention, the album features guest appearances from Keyshia Cole, Trina, Kanye West, Ne-Yo, Lil' Wayne and Akon.

"Knock You Down" featuring Kanye West and Ne-Yo is one of the album's hottest tracks.

"Sometimes love comes around /(love comes around love comes around) and it knocks you down /Just get back up/ When it knocks you down," she sings on the chorus.

"Make Love" is a slow jam that caught my ear when I first heard it. The soft melody with mixed Keri's angelic voice could easily bring any man to his knees. This is definitely one of my favorite joints. (check out the video below. caution: could make you melt. keri is beautiful.)

"Get Your Money Up" featuring Keyshia Cole and Trina is a dope track. It's one of those ladies anthem type of tracks. It's definitely the Polow Da Don beat that sets this off.

Of course, the album includes familiar tracks, "Energy" and "Turnin' Me On" featuring Lil' Wayne, but this release is about much more than those two songs.

She really did not disappoint. I'm not a big fan of "Change Me" featuring Akon. I could have did without him on the album, personally. Other than that, it's a solid album from top to bottom. Go cop it!
