The epic hip-hop flavour of Keri Hilson will be adding some spice to ‘The Greatest Reggae Show On Earth’, when she appears on Reggae Sumfest in July.
The Atlanta-grown singer has been added to the line up for International Night I, Friday July 24, and joins an already dazzling array of stars including Jazmine Sullivan, Ne-Yo, Morgan Heritage, Jah Cure, Queen Ifrica and Coco Tea.
A member of The Clutch group of producers, Hilson is as talented a singer as she is a writer. The bombshell beauty has penned songs for the likes of Usher, Diddy, Ciara, Chris Brown, Mary J Blige, Omarion, The Pussycat Dolls, and Britney Spears.
Her first album, In A Perfect World, was released earlier this year and made it to the top spot on Billboard’s R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart. It was also number four on the Billboard Top Album Chart in the week of its debut.
Reggae Sumfest kicks off with a beach party on Sunday July 19, and continues with three days of live performances at Catherine Hall in Montego Bay, beginning with Dancehall Night on Thursday July 23 and ending with International Night II on Saturday July 25.
Dancehall Night’s performances will see the likes of Beenie Man, Bounty Killer, Mavado, Vybz Kartel, Busy Signal, Lady Saw, D’Angel, Spice, Konshens, Kiprich, and Bugle rocking the stage; while International Night II will feature Toni Braxton, Nas, Damian Marley, Etana, Tarrus Riley, Da’Ville, Lutan Fyah and more, shaking the grounds of the Catherine Hall Estate.
