Song of the Moment: “One Night Stand”

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.
