There were a few big gainers on the charts this week. The biggest was the most confusing dance-along tune ever.
WTF? I'd need like six years of contemporary jazz training to perform that routine. Who knew I could miss the macarena.
In any case, my favourite riser is Keri Hilson's automatic hit "Knock You Down". Her rise to prominence hasn't been an easy one (she hasn't had too much success outside of "Turnin Me On", which I adored but a lot of people didn't), but if we're to compare her to Rihanna like a lot of people seem to do, then this is Keri's "Umbrella". It probably won't be as celebrated as that megahit, but I fully expect "Knock You Down" to hit #1 at some point.
It's just so pleasing to listen to, and it has the shimmery vibe that should make it a summer smash. Keri's voice isn't great, but she sings capably here, and when you have Kanye and Ne-Yo on the track your voice doesn't really have to stand out too much, anyways.
