Someone Called Keri Hilson A "Has Been" And Her Clapback Deserves Applause

"I'm sorry this is your only definition of success."

Published 4 weeks ago

Back in the late 2000’s, southern belle Keri Hilson emerged as an incredible solo act after stepping out of her comfort zone as a songwriter. After the release of her sophomore album, No Boys Allowed, the R&B singer backed out of the limelight. Aside from a publicly private relationship with NBA baller Serge Ibaka, Hilson switched her focus on acting, making appearances in Almost Christmas and Think Like A Man. Earlier this year, the “Knock You Down” soulstress admitted that she “hit rock bottom a few times [and] had to give up music for a while,” despite announcing a new album last year on The Real. However, some haters took a moment to shame her former musical success.

In a motivational tweet, Ms. Keri Baby penned “I’ve learned that God responds to my action over my waiting…. There is no fear. Whatever direction I take, He will either protect me w/ divine correction or provide the tools to finish…” Heading to Instagram, she continued, “moral of the story? Just move… And sometimes the “tools” are people.”

  1. One rude commentator responded, "shut up and sit down. Your last hit was 2011. Has been."

    In the style of "I'm good, love; enjoy," Hilson sweetly replied. "I'm sorry this is your only definition of success, but my grandkids straight," she began. The In A Perfect World singer pointed out that she "overcame mountains and broken family curses." She politely ended her matter-of-fact clapback with "and the best part? God ain't done with me yet."

  2. Her class act has her die-hard fans giving her a standing ovation and reminding others to respect her legacy
