Keri Hilson Teases in ‘Slow Dance’ Video

Keri Hilson

Keri Hilson is taking things nice and slow in the video for the latest single off her debut album In a Perfect World…

Miss Keri shot the video for “Slow Dance” this week in Los Angeles with Chris Robinson, who directed “Knock You Down” and R. Kelly’s “Number One,” in which she co-stars.

Robinson explained the concept to Rap-Up.com. “It’s a really sexy song, but we don’t want to fall into the typical love, love, love R&B vibe with that,” he revealed. “So it’s a misdirection, so to speak. I won’t give too much away, but it starts where you think, ‘Oh, it’s about her and being sexy.’”

But things take an unexpected turn when Hilson’s friends catch her feeling herself a little too much. “She’s in her house and by herself, and you kind of think it could be serious, but the song drops out in the middle and her friends catch her being all sexy, basically like, ‘What the f**k are you doing? You are not singing by yourself.’”

The twist portrays her as a woman who doesn’t take herself too seriously. “Keri Hilson has a great personality and is a real girl. That’s what we want to get across.”

    @Phillybul i was about to say the same thing im mad confused now cause on her twitter yesterday she said she was shooting a video for another song but it wasnt specified which song it would be. Many reliable sources said the Slow Dance video was shot on july 6th with Paul hunter. Idk whats going on i just hope shes doing the video for Get Your Money up cause that needs to be a single!

    this isnt for Slow Dance, Keri has announced that the video for that has already BEEN shot with Paul Hunter, unless she’s re-shooting it which i highly doubt.
