Last year Kanye West and 50 Cent managed to cause a media frenzy when they announced that they were releasing their albums on the same day. Now MediaTakeOut.com is hearing that R&B singers Michelle Williams and Keri Hilson are trying to do the same.
MediaTakeout.com has EXCLUSIVELY learned that R&B singer Keri Hilson has delayed the release of her new album In a Perfect World so that it could go head-to-head with the release of Michelle Williams new album Unexpected. Both albums will be released on October 7th.
Hopefully it will help the sales of both albums ... Hey, we can HOPE can't we ....
Keri Hilson look so old. She came in the game late. She has a nose on her. I think this is a good thang.
For some reason I don't there will be a mad rush to buy either of these ladies cd's!
I love michelle but Keri Hilson is going to kill her on the billboard charts. just keeping it real..
aint no news here I see
i think dat will b a good match
You're cruel MTO LOL!
i want keri hilson to win she can sing her heart out
well keri seems kinda cool but hey whos been in d game longer..?
Michelle loos like a caveman and I wish keri well.Michells voice is very weak.
wont buy either one...
Aaahh, who is Keri Hilson. Maybe I'm old
nobody cares about them both. i wouldnt be surprised if matthew paid for michelle to get the top of the billboard dance chart
hmm. maybe she should have picked someone else to go head to head with...I mean c'mon now,
keri hilson that new deal
MICHELLE AINT GOT AS MUCH PROMOTION AS KERI!!! AND WTF IS UP WIT KERI'S NOSE??? DAT *** BIG AS HELL!!!ANYWHO...*** OUT TO ALL DA BI AND *** CHICKS OUT THERE!!!
MICHELLE WILL SELL 2 COPIES AND KERI WILL SELL 1, WHO IS KERI?
who caressssssss aint neither one of them gonna sell nething theyre both wack
i just don't know. this doesn't sound good for neither. one of the dates will change.
Michelle's real name is really Tenitra. Matthew knowles changed her name to Michelle possibly because he wanted Beyonce to be the only one in the group with the exotic name smh....
I am really pulling for Tenitra (Michelle)....I would love to see her escape from the shadow of the other two DC members....Plus she always comes across so humble and sweet in her interviews...A very likable gal.
LOL @ the has-been vs the never-will-be. MTO must of cared enough to make this a top story. SMH
Boring(both of um)
hopefully they both will do good with their album sells.........
They are both nice..but neither will sell..
i definitly would not compare this to the 50/kanye battle. No one will be busting down the doors to best buy to get their cd.
I LIKE THEM BOTH. GOOD FOR THEM I THINK KERRI MAKES BETTER MUSIC THOU. GOOD LUCK TO BOTH
I THIN SOME OF U FEMALE'S ARE JUST STR8 HATIN' ON BOTH THOSE BEAUTIFUL LADIES! BLACK WOMEN REALLY NEED TO UNITE RATHER THEN WISHING EACH OTHER DEFEAT.
I would bang em both real good. Michelle act like she miss goody 2 shoes, but I perfer classy over nasty so, I would bust that wide open just to let her know you aint to good. Kerri tries to win with *** appeal. Even though she is sexy that aint nothing. I would beat that up like I got a grudge on that monkey. Just so she know what happen when you walk around with that freaky stuff on.
i'll pass and pick up ciara and beyonce in the following month
michelle got my support love her voice and very down2earth- that other girl looks wack- never heard of her
They need to stay home caused they both WACK
love michelle's hair! i doubt either will be jumpin off da shelves, but good luck!
good title! but i would have prefered the NEVER WAS and the NEVER WILL BE...
Keri Hilson is so wack. SHE LOOKS LIFE ALF!
Like someone else said..She looks too old...Too late in the game...
She actually claims to be 24 or something..bwhahahah the industry lies! I don't think age matters when it comes to good music..but er um..shes just lame.
Michelle....shes just lucky to be a part of DC. She should stick to gospel that is a good venue for people who cant make it in R *** B.
lol michelle whos michelle?
JAMAICA TO D UNIVERSE!
Usain Bolt (GOLD), Shelly-Ann Fraser (GOLD), Sherone Simpson (SILVER) and Kerron Stewart (SILVER)!!! Jamaica love unuh!!!
Hate us or Love us IT IS WHAT IT IS!!!
oh i know who from beyarnsay *** dem
Keri Hilson has some jams. LOL What happend to Michelle singing gospel. DC members other than Beyonce need to give it up. Beyonce was the only they set up to be real big. If Latoya can't get it together then noone else from that group will doing anything outside of it.
why mto always tryna put women against each other?
i love their hair! take note rats! the toupe lookin quick weaves and those ugly ghetto *** ponytails with fingerwaves and loops gottta go!
LOLOL!!!! THANKS FOR MAKING ME LAUGH AFTER READING THE BERNIE MAC STORY!
yall aint right :-D lolol just look @ that headline
Um... Keri can hang it up. I believe Michelle has more fans willing to spend their money on HER album than Keri has people that even KNOW WHO DA *** SHE IS.
i say keri cause she on the rise very slowly
I wish both of these attractive, independent, hardworking sistas much success, and then some!
Michelle is the luckiest person in entertainment since Kevin Federline. She literally tripped and fell and landed a spot with destiny's child.
Keri Hilson been in the game for a minute but has nothing distinguishing her from any other female in the game. So this 'battle' doesn't even approach 50 versus Kanye. Its more like Royce Da 5'9 versus D12 or MC Hammer versus Vanilla Ice
I hate the back of Forest Whittaker's neck.--B.Mac
You know, why does MTO put people down like that? With Timberland backing Keri Hilson, who knows?
who care neither one will sell over 50 cd's such a waste of studio time and ours
Boring. Michelle should of stuck to singing gospel and who the hell is Keri Hilson.
I'm not a fan of either of them.I just wanted to comment!lol
Keri is so adorable. Wonder when Michelle will come out with her real age? She states that she is "27"...not sure about that one!
I will pass on both.
Michelle Williams may get themost sells just off the fact that she has a little more history, butwhatever her name is may be ***.
I doubt anybody cares about either of their albums. I doubt it's even on Limewire!
LETS GET READY TO RUMBLE
I don't think either one of them that great, but Keri Hilson will probably do better. Michelle is kinda late.
Who and who?
I mean i don't think either one will do that great, but Keri will do better
keri'll do better, michelle has never been that great on her own, dnt get me wrong, both can blow. but ya know im actually anticpating keri's. =D
Aww MTO stop being a hater so much!!!
I hope not that's my Bday lol
I love this girl - Keri.
REASON WHY ALOT OF YOU NEVER HEARD OF KERI IS BECAUSE SHE IS A SONG WRITTER. SHE WROTE SONGS FOR CHRIS BROWN, TONI BRAXTON, BRTINEY SPEARS, MARY J, CIARA, USHER, *** DOLLS, DANITY KANE, LUDACRIS, RICH BOY, KELLY ROWLAND, LLOYD BANKS,OMARION, KEKE PALMER AND MUCH MORE. SHE DID BACKGROUND VOCALS FOR LUDACRIS RUNAWAY LOVE. SHE SINGS THE SONG " THE WAY I ARE" WITH TIMBERLAND. SHE PLAYED LEAD IN "LOVE IN THIS CLUB" WITH USHER. SHE IS ALSO ON THAT SONG HERO WITH NAS. OH SHE WROTE THAT SONG "GIMME MORE" FOR BRITNEY SPEARS. CHINGY'S "LET ME LOVE YOU" LUDACRIS "PIMPIN ALL OVER THE WORLD" MARY J'S "TAKE ME AS I AM" OMARION" ICE BOX".
THE GIRL IS JUST TALENTED I COULD GO ON AN ON ABOUT THE MUSIC SHE WROTE. NOW GIVE HER HER CREDIT
HOW MANY TIMES MUST I SAY TO YOU GOD HATES THE SIN BUT LOVES THE SINNER. SO STOP SAYING GOD HATES PEOPLE YOU..........
I like them both
wow they are both nice...but i will most likely be buying Michelle's album...but hey visit my site below
Theyre both good but Keri is better
IN THE BIBLE TIMES *** MEANT MONGREL. WHICH MEANS A PERSON OR ANIMAL OF MIX BREED OR RACE OR NATIONALITY
*** meant mongrel prior to the mid-19th century -- A Comprehensive Lexicon by John Pickering (1847), for the noun moichidios: "***, spurious." This Greek word should correctly be translated as mongrel, and a true understanding of the English language reveals that when Pickering, in 1847, used the word ***, he too meant a mongrel. This was a common understanding of the word in the mid-19th century and before, as we shall prove later. Pickering was not the only one, however, to understand that the word moichidios meant mongrel. In Lexicon Manuale by Cornelius Schrevel (1796), the word moichidios is defined with the Latin word "adulterinus."
michelle got a #1 dance song right now. hopefully her album is good.
Why can't we just wish both of them well, and stop with all the hatin, pickin sides and ish?
MTO why are you all always trying to start something? There's no beef here. I hope they both do well, and live out their dreams. I'm sure they worked hard on their music.
ha ha. wonder what keri has against michelle. i don't think michelle's album would do well regardless of when she released it. she is too wishy washy. first she wants to do gospel, now she wants to distance herself? whatsup with that. she loses respect in my book when you do things like that. besides that i'm not too impressed with her vocal, uh, talents nor her image.
I loves keri's single "energy" and as for michelle shes jus overall wack!
Who cares....But I'd bang the one on the right.
THEY PROBABLY DIDNT INTEND TO DROP ON THE SAME DAY TO BATTLE EACH OTHER. EVER THINK ABOUT THAT MTO.......
neitha 1 of em iz really rinqin ne bellz but wutevuh dey both prolly gunna end up lookin like luhzahs
lmao mean *** title but dat's basically wat it is lol love michelle and keri so idk all i know is dat they both gon sell like 100 copies and it's gon be thanks to their families lol good luck lol
I like Keri, she has some song writing skills! The girl can actually sing if you have ever heard her live.
poor michelle. keri got them beats from timbo.and i fell in love with her voice on timbo's joint. if you heard that album you'd all buy keri.i honestly havent heard anything from michelle since destiny child. publicity must be scarce.
Ha Ha dat title MTO... Persoally I think Both Of their Albums Gonna b a flop
FEMALES ARE SCANDALOUS...ALWAYS HATING ON EACH OTHER !!!!!!!
MICHELLE WILL DO WELL !
THE 6 OR 7 SONGS I'VE HEARD SO FAR SOUNDS BETTER THAN KELLY'S SONGS !
SHE'S ALREADY WENT #1 ON THE BILLBOARD DANCE RADIO CHARTS WITH BREAK THE DAWN, SO MICHELLE IS COOL !
THE DOWN TO EARTH PERSONALITY IS REALLY WASSUP !
AND LADY'S STOP ALL THAT HATIN ! CONGRADULATE ! DAYUM !
and no offense to anyone, have yall been living under a rock !
go to youtube and listen to Michelle 's new songs
WE BREAK THE DAWN
STOP THIS CAR
TIL THE END OF THE WORLD !
SHE GOT KERI BEAT FORRRRR REEEEEEAAAAAAALLL !
i like keri hilson but i dont wanna buy her album i can just go 2 youtube..uhh im not gettin either 1
i think keri's album mite sell
Song writers tend to get paid more than artists so I'm guessing Keri just wanted some spotlight of her own and went for a singing career, kinda like Neyo did...Or even Ye because he was behind the scenes too...
I wish them both success...
Tenitra...lol. Now why would u change that?
"It made me stronger~Now I get my paper longer"
I'm not feelin michele williams too much. but keri hilson is a write she doesn't need an album for real. let her make her dreams come true dont start trashing her like that give her a chance
Both of their albums are going to flop. I'm not feelin' either one.
keri hilson will easily sell 100k and michelle will barely see 1k. dont nobody wanna hear michelle singing bout breaking tha *** dawn.
Keri Hilson is sexy as hell. Got to roll with her on this one.
I PREFER KERI MICHELLE WACK ANYWAY KERI PRETTY BUT SHE NEEDS A NOSE JOB QUICK...
KERI HILSON IS SO TALENTED. AND DUDE BEFORE ME STOP TALKIN BOUT HER NOSE THERE AINT NOTHIN WRONG WITH HER !!
Michelle is gonna find competition regardless what day she comes out. For instance, she was gonna be up against Janelle Monae Aug 12th. Though I love Michelle as a person, her single is SO WACK - even if Solange wrote it.
What do ya'll mean keri looks too old for the game? and just because you never heard of somebody doesn't mean they cant sing.some of you people are so shallow and narrow minded its pathetic.
when anthony Hamilton came out no one said he was too old for the game and that man is in his 40's and can sang.
I will say that michelle has a WEAK voice and she's unattractive...BIG TIME.
KERI LOOKS LIKE lA`LA FROM BET
Ohkay well then qo COP
both they albums!
IM A FAN OF MICHELLE BUT KERI IS THE NEW HOTTEST THING AND SHE HAS A GREAT VOICE GOOD LUCK BUT TEAM KERI
I know what it feels like to be a washed up
Thats why I tried to revamp my career by
moving to the forums and trying to fit in
there. Thank goodness people fell for it.
But I still didnt make the cut.
Things will never be as good for me as they
were when I was kissing JrLinks behind to be
popular. I can still taste the brown on my lips.
PEACE,FROM THE BAY!
& ENJOY THIS *** OF THE SUN.
BOTH MS.WILLIAMS AND MS.HILSON'S SONGS ARE DOPE,HELLA.BOTH OF THEIR ALBUMS WILL BE SUCESFUL
KIN CAMELL(GOOGLE THAT)
LOL @ the title
michelle's new album is amazing.
YEAH NEITHER OF EM CAN SING BUT KERRI SOUND WAY BETTER THAN MICHELLE DONALD DUCK VOICE. KERI SHOULD GET INTO MODELING LIKE BEYONCE, HALLE, GABRIELLE AND RIHANNA.
mto that was mean. i went to a listen party (keri hilson) and her cd is good. if her label releases singles in a strategic manner, she will sell. i'm pulling for TENITRA also, lol.
i strongly doubt either is trying to start a battle, lol.
KERRI HILSON IS JUST A WANNABE RIHANNA. MICHELLE IS JUST DESPERATE FOR ANY KIND OF PUBLICITY OR CHANGE.
SO IN THE END WHO CARES???
Go Keri! Michelle's day is over...gurl neva even tried
I haven't bought an entire CD in ages, but I'll checkout the tracks on Rhapsody and decide which onr I would listen to over and over.
Keri has the better chance of doing well now, Michelle had her chances already and i think ppl are tired of seein old faces. I am sorry for her thou. Was over shadowed by Bey.
LMFAO! I JUST LAAAUGHHTT AT SOME OF YOU PEOPLE COMMENTS AND ITS FUNNY HOW YA SAY THAT KERI AINT *** AND THAT YOU DONT CARE AND THAT MICHELE IS BETTER BUT TO BE HONEST WITH YOU KERI HILSON WROTE HALF THE MUSIC ON DESTINYS CHILD ALBUM. SHES THE TRUTH AINT NO ONE *** W| KERI. NOT EVEN BEY IS *** WITH HER AND YESS I SAID BEYONCE. DID YOU NOT NO SHE WROTE BEYONCES PART IN LOVE IN THIS CLUB. GET UP ON YA MUSIC PPL. OH AND MICHELE I LIKE HER NEW SONG LOL AND MTO KERI ALBUM WAS PUSHED BACK THEY ARENT DROPPING THE SAME DAYY
I never thought either one of them could sing anyway, im sorry
I enjoy reading the comments here .. then See you soon, I am going to
" I *** t e r r a c i a l L o v i *** g . C o M" to chat with sexual sport babes - a place to find real nice black and white girls to spend lonely ***.
hmmm lets see... both of their singles suck. i pick none of the above.
UM...WHO ARE THESE HOES AGAIN?
Keri too old?
Uh, she's 23.
Anyway...Keri is beautiful. But, even though she has Timbaland behind her...I heard her first single (forgot the name) and I don't think anyone's going to buy into it.
I like Keri, I wish them both well although I still believe Michelle will never reach her full potential under her current management.
Energy >>> Break the Dawn ... I think the Lord might make an example out of Michelle for flip flopping ... lol ...
MTO ya'll need to get it right Keri didnt push her own album back to compete w/ Michelle's, u dumba$$es f*ck outta here wit that ish. Her new song is already being played on different stations across the country every couple of minutes in every hour & the single is already climbing up the Billboard charts. STFU with ya'll negativity.So dueces b!tches.
She's only 25 thats old? she started writin for mary j blige, Britney Spears,J Lo, Toni Braxton,& Usher when she was 18 so she's been around for a while get ya facts straight never will be? U dumb fuhhks shes said to be the next female Ne-YO
Ladies, even the men see the hate we put each other through. Let's support these ladies...don't let MTO make azzes out of us by making them look like competitors!
Richyung...i think people say she looks old..and she does..25 isn't old..but i dont think shes 25 people who know her claim she has been trying to get into this business for about 10 years now...so that would mean she was 15 writin for these people? Remember when the record label wanted NE YO to say he was 22? when he was really like 27 or so..I dont buy shes 25 ..not that it matters..shes just lame
MISSHIPS...all of those songs you named that KERI wrong were written by a group called the CLUTCH that is was or is a part of. If you look at the resumes of every writer on that team they will claim ALLLLLLL of those songs on their personal resumes. SO how many did KERI write on her own? NONE! so to say she is SOOOOO talented based on that doesnt bolster your claim....There is another woman namedc CANDICE <sP> on that team who i think is the real "TALENT" in the team and would claim to have written most of the songs you named as well..Just look at the myspaces...the list of SONGS they wrote are IDENTICAL...
Keri looks like ALF but she has a decent enough figure..That is why they are selling her "LEGS" and "BODY" but i dont think that will be enough no matter how much TIMBALAND AND POLOW try to *** her.
excuse the typo's. its pretty late g nite
one more thing.....KERI didnt hold up her release..it got PUSHED BACK by the label...they know she's lame too...the people arent driking the KOOL AID just yet
Beyonce is working on a remix with Michelle for her second single. Check out ClevelandsHottest.com
ok... bofe they albums gon flop so wat the fuggin purpose of this story. who gives a fudge about michelle ol' whiney i cant sing azz. and keri energy video and the song is wack az fudge
FYI for MTO!!! Yall really need to start doin a lil bit mo research befo yall b tryna get on the internet and try to shame ppl cause na yall shame b/c Keri Hilson has been in the game for a while na and she has written numerous top selling records for artist who we adore... Sad cause na I would feel shame if I was the person who called Keri a "never will be" for the simple fact that...ACTUALLY ALREADY IS!!!
Ummm. I don't know about this one cuz both have been out of it for a few but we will see what happens. I like both of them so.......
People research your info, Keri has been in the game since the late 90's , and has written for all of your favorite artist. Michelle, well her look speaks for herself. Keri of course I will be coping. Research your data before u start talking smack!!!!! I have known my girl Keri sense elementary school!!!!!!! Keri been keeping everybody head bobbing for years, longer than Michelle. Michelle piggy backed on Destiny child.
I think Michelle will have a pretty good album.
I'll be coping Michelle's.....I don't know who keri is.
But the hateration on either of theses ladies definatly needs to stop. But I was already planing on buying Michelle's album. We break the dawn is HOT!!
I say good luck to both but i must admit....their both BORING and michelle cant sing...LOL
yea so the rest of thr group could have non-memorable names and be less noticed.hmmm that's sad.Michelle has always been da under dog
"we break the dawn' is cool, but "energy" is a much better song. i put my money on keri. she's done a ton of work in the industry...that most people aren't aware of. i can appreciate her better as an solo artist anyday.
Keri is the ish! I love her music & she writes a lot of her own stuff. I haven't bought a females CD since Beyonce's B-Day but I will be buying Keri's. I just wish she would get rid of that mushroom haircut. She looked so good in Usher's "In The Club" video.
I love Keri's new song Energy. Gone to youtube to listen to it now. I wish her much success!
WONDER WHO IS GOING TO SELL MORE??
Kerri wins. Michelle just seems like an over-the-hill boring singer. Kerri is new and fresh and her song is hot.
I love Destiny's child but Michelle and I'm reluctant to say, even Kelly has lost my interest. Beyonce is almost tired.
michelle new songs sucks I like keri song she sing better then michelle and her song is better. I always liked michelle but i hope her other songs on that cd is better then the single out now. I will be downloading both cd's when they come out.
Ummmm, Keri is VERY talented. I think she's going to have the edge in sells...
I feel so bad for these artists because with the economy being in the doghouse,lay-offs on the rise, and most people not being able to really have a real safety net in the bank (6-9 months salary) how are people able to spend their extra money on music. Artists have to do more to get those dollars like more tours and magazine articles because the people need to connect with the artists because we hear the songs on the radio so much you don't need to purchase the songs.
I think Beyonce became the star she is because of the public became involved with her love affair with Jay-Z. I am not taking anything from her efforts because she was probably working hard back then but to hear the soft melody of Beyonce mix with the hardcore Jay-Z it was magic.
Every girl has had the fantasy of the bad boy and he is so bad. The energy the two of them have on the stage when they are together is felt by all.
I love Michelle from her Destiny's Child days so now all she needs is to follow the formula from Bey.
this isnt accurate, because michelle's album will not be r&b, so they arent even in the same categoty, mto, step up your game
I think they are both beautiful sisters and hope they both do well which *** be that hard since they are totally opposite with one being a gospel singer and the other r&b.
Keri Hilson's style is sooo fly, hair,clothes and all
