New Music: Keri Hilson – ‘Pretty Girl Rock’

After debuting her new single “Pretty Girl Rock” live at last week’s Beats by Dr. Dre event in New York City, Keri Hilson is feelin’ herself on the freshly released studio version of the track. Produced by Ne-Yo and Chuck Harmony, the song is an exploration of self-love, with the blonde Keri-lyn Hilson telling the naysayers to quit the hatin’ just because she’s a pretty chick.

“My name is Keri, I’m so very fly/ Oh my, it’s a little bit scary/ Boys wanna marry, looking at my derrière/ You could stare, but if you touch it, I’mma bury,” she sings on the track from her sophomore album No Boys Allowed.

Miss Keri described the song during a recent Ustream session. “It’s not meant to be a vain record. I want everybody to feel like they can do the ‘Pretty Girl Rock,'” she explained. “It’s like the hair brush in the mirror, don’t hate me ’cause I’m beautiful, ’cause you are. Everybody is beautiful. I want everyone to be able to sing that record.”

Heed her advice and bop your head to the bright tune below.
