In her new video for “Pretty Girl Rock,” from her upcoming No Boys Allowed album, Keri Hilson plays dress-up while paying homage to a few important pretty girls throughout history.
The video begins in black and white with Keri Hilson transforming into legendary ’20s jazz singer Josephine Baker, and then into film star Dorothy Dandridge. “Pretty Girl Rock” switches to color when Keri shows up as ’40s girl group The Andrews Sisters, followed by the one and only Diana Ross, disco diva Donna Summer, “Rhythm Nation”-era Janet Jackson and finally a silk pajama-wearing T-Boz in TLC’s “Creep” video. (100 bonus points for the authenticity of that wig!) At the end of the video, the real Keri Hilson, donning a simple T-shirt and jeans, leads the pretty girl pack.
“Pretty Girl Rock” is a fun, mid-tempo anthem inviting girls (and boys, no judgment) to throw on some heels, strut their stuff and “do the pretty girl rock.” And the “Pretty Girl Rock” video is basically a four-minute makeover montage and, hello, who doesn’t love makeover montages?
