Song of the Moment: “One Night Stand”

May 3, 2011 § Leave a comment

I have never been a huge fan of Keri Hilson, but the R&B singer got me hooked on a particular song off her recent sophomore album No Boys Allowed. Hilson paired with fellow crooner Chris Brown to create a solid record, “One Night Stand”, released in March of this year. The track is classic 90’s R&B; the rhythm is heavy and bass-driven, the harmony is electric and sexy, and the lyrics are simple yet effective. The song alone is such a standout from all the other R&B records out there, but it is the video that takes the song to the next level.

Brown and Hilson¬†channel the essence of Jodeci, Aaliyah, Janet Jackson, and Ginuwine perfectly. From the trench coats, the thick-rimmed sunglasses, the dim lighting, the duet dances, and the grungy setting, it all oozes seduction and mystery. I’m a huge fan of this record; being an avid 90’s music fan, I hope that other R&B artists will take this classic sound and twist it into a fresh sound that we all can love and relate to.
