Machine Gun Kelly performed this track, to a chorus of boos, at Wrestlemania in Miami over the weekend. Although, I’m honestly not sure if the jeers were for him or John Cena. Regardless, this track is awesome. Ester Dean, who has penned hits for the likes of Rihanna and Katy Perry, is on the hook. I don’t think it’s a coincidence that the track has a “Low The Way You Lie” feel to it, although obviously much more uplifting.

Lil Wayne is back on the road this summer, and Keri Hilson is one of his four supporting acts on the “I Am Still Music” tour. Sure, the two artists know each other; Weezy even had a verse on Hilson’s single, “Turnin’ Me On.” But that doesn’t mean the two are hanging out every day, or even saying hello… or for that matter, even seeing each other.

“Fifth show and I haven’t seen him yet,” Hilson revealed in her dressing room last week at Toyota Pavilion at Montage Mountain. The interview aired Monday evening on “The Ralphie Radio Show.” “We are in our own world, preparing for every show, every day.”

Hilson did catch Wayne’s set a couple nights prior, and was nothing but complimentary towards the Young Money emcee.

“He has a lot of fun on stage,” Hilson observed. “That’s the one thing you can’t take away from Wayne, you will have fun watching him. He’s just such a character.”

“Miss Keri Baby” isn’t ruling out a collaboration between the two yet. Still early in the trek, Hilson simply said “it could happen.”

The singer/songwriter also paid props to another artist that she’s collaborated with: Ester Dean. Like Hilson, Dean both pens and sings songs. Her 2009 hit “Drop It Low” helped to establish the latter. Since, Dean has written big hits for Rihanna, Nicki Minaj, and Katy Perry. She also wrote Hilson’s next single, “Lose Control.”

“I love the video, too,” Hilson added. “It’s one of my favorite videos I’ve ever done.”

The song features Nelly and is on Keri’s latest album, No Boys Allowed.

Without hesitation, Ester Dean revealed on The Ralphie Radio Show that she never hesitated to include Chris Brown on the remix or in the video of her track, “Drop It Low.”

“I love him. That’s like my brother,” described Dean of her relationship to the R&B crooner. “It didn’t matter. He killed it.”

The singer referred to Brown’s inclusion in the project and his performance in the video. But as close as the two are, Dean insists that she’s doesn’t inquiry in to Brown’s personal matters.

Singer/Songwriter Ester Dean talked Chris Brown, “Drop It Low”, and self-image on The Ralphie Radio Show.

“I don’t dig in to all of that,” said Dean. “I let him do what he does. I’m here on a different side for him.”

Brown recently began serving out his sentence of hard labor and community service after pleading guilty to assaulting his ex-girlfriend, Rihanna, last February. Dean – an accomplished song writer who penned tracks for Keri Hilson, Mary J. Blige, and The Pussycat Dolls – is signed to a deal with producer Polow Da Don’s Zone 4. “Drop It Low” is included on the soundtrack to a new documentary that features LeBron James.
