When we first featured Keri Hilson‘s Turnin Me On, the record received only faint praise from DJBooth regulars, though many thought that Lil Wayne‘s guest verse was the cut’s saving grace. Now, the R&B singer/songwriter is back with a brand new remix of the In A Perfect World… single. This revamp retains Polow Da Don‘s club-friendly beat, but trades Weezy F. Baby for veteran emcee Busta Rhymes. Wooing Hilson with suave compliments and promises of matching ‘his’ and ‘hers’ mansions, Busta comes off as more chivalrous than Weezy, whose self-involved and somewhat ungentlemanly verse on the original was a potential turnoff for female listeners, but can his slow flow compete with the off-the-wall stylings of the self-proclaimed “best rapper alive?” You be the judge. Though the debut LP has suffered numerous delays, Hilson’s label has stated that In A Perfect World… will most definitely be dropping March 30, 2009.
