Keri Hilson is hitting the airwaves with the fourth single off her latest album, ‘No Boys Allowed.’ The track, ‘Lose Control’ (featuring Nelly), serves up beats for the dance floor and lyrics for the bedroom.

‘Lose Control’ is produced and co-written by StarGate, the team behind such hits as Beyonce‘s ‘Irreplaceable’ and Rihanna‘s ‘Take a Bow.’ An infectious synthesized backing track powers the tune as Keri sings suggestive lines like, “So come on lets move through the crowd / So we can find ourselves some privacy / And when I get you all to myself / I promise it’s gonna be hard to breathe.”

Keri hits some nice high notes on the song’s chorus, which already has some built-in dance moves mixed into its lyrics: “Shake, wind, and roll / Let’s lose control.” Meanwhile, Nelly acts as hype man on the chorus before launching into his own rap verse about how much he’d pay to get with Keri.

‘Lose Control’ is definitely a catchy track, but its formulaic style may prevent it from becoming the breakthrough single that Keri’s ‘No Boys Allowed’ truly needs.

Rating: 7/10
