“Lose Control” f. Nelly (Video)

    It’s unlikely that any new singles off Keri Hilson’s No Boys Allowed will have the same chart success as “Pretty Girl Rock.” But if any of them can do it, it’s “Lose Control.” And no, it’s not because of Nelly’s borderline-laughable guest appearance. The success of this track rests on the shoulders of StarGate, the hit-making production team you know best from Wiz Khalifa’s ubiquitous “Black & Yellow.” They’re again toying with the synthesizers and keys here as a means of finding a balance between pop sensibility and night club readiness. StarGate absolutely hits the mark on “Lose Control,” but does anyone actually want to hear Nelly in 2011?


    No Boys Allowed is out now.
