Keri Hilson smiled for a close-up at Spring Bling recently.- and this particular pop starlet must be giddy than a mutha behind her latest achievement:

Chart-topping singer/songwriter Keri Hilson rocked the charts at Billboard with the debut album “In A Perfect World” this week. Hilson’s long anticipated album became the week’s top R&B/Hip Hop debut thanks to sales of 94,000 copies, besting that of Jim Jones’ new album “Pray IV Reign”.

“In A Perfect World,” led by the singles “Turnin’ Me On,” “Energy” and “Knock You Down,” boasts collaborations with Lil Wayne, Kanye West, Polow Da Don, Keyshia Cole and Trina placing it at no.4 on this week’s Billboard 200. Jim Jones’ “Pray IV Reign” follows at no. 9 with 43,000 copies moved.

Other albums debuting on the chart this week, including “The Rose Experience” from Hip Hop/Soul crooner Case, debuted beneath the top 20 according to Nielsen Soundscan.

Good for Keri. It’s nice to see folks with actual talent get the credit they deserve. We got some more pics of Slim Thug, LeToya Luckett & more at Spring Bling below:

    I miss the days that you had to really know how to sing to be on the charts. Today being light skin with a 29in waist will get you a record deal.

  • She 4 real

    WOW….She looks like a dude in that picture.

  • Jace

    You got it Somer. Its sad that music is driven by such superficial characteristics as size, complexion, and fashion. Real talent doesn’t stand a chance in today’s industry. Big up to Chrisette Michelle, saw her perform live two weeks ago and she was incredible. Also looking forward to hearing Melanie Fiona’s musical offering to the world. She has such a great voice.
