A bit of background on our celebrity guest...
Keri Hilson rose to fame when she collaborated with Timbaland on his 2006 album Shock Value - she featured on the song The Way I Are - and has also worked with many other big names including Kanye West, Xzibit, Ne-Yo and Usher.

Not only that, but she's also penned hit songs for artists including Britney Spears, Mary J Blige and The Pussycat Dolls, and she's been nominated for numerous awards, including two Grammys. She's won her fair share of covetable gongs too, including a MOBO and a BET Award.

She released her debut solo album In A Perfect World... in 2009 to great fanfare and her second album, No Boys Allowed has also been a great success, and her songs seem to strike a chord with almost everyone. At MSN, our favourite Keri Hilson track is Knock You Down featuring Kanye West and Ne-Yo. (What's yours? Leave a message for us below!)
