Slim Thug has 122,610 MySpace friends.
Keri Hilson – In a Perfect World
Hilson began songwriting in 2001 and has written tracks for Britney Spears, Ciara, Usher, and Ludacris. Despite having made a name for herself as an arranger and background vocalist, as well as lending her vocal talents to many of the songs she co-wrote, Hilson broke out in 2004, when she was featured on Xzibit’s single, “Hey Now (Mean Muggin)” and made her performing debut singing the track live at the 2004 MTV Europe Awards. Hilson’s debut solo album, In a Perfect World, features top singles, “Return the Favor” featuring Timbaland and “Turnin’ Me On” featuring Lil’ Wayne. Keri Hilson has 162,168 MySpace friends.
Case – The Rose Experience
Case is known best for hit songs including: “Touch Me Tease Me,” “Missing You,” “Happily Ever After” and “Faded Picture” is back with his fourth album, The Rose Experience. This album stays true to Case’s signature sound – soul music with a twist of new jack and hip-hop, and will not disappoint fans. Always drawing from his musical influencers like Stevie Wonder, the Beatles, Elton John and Earth Wind and Fire, new songs such as “Lovely” and “I Can’t” will take the listener on a journey into love and relationships from Case’s perspective.
Beginning on Saturday, March 21
