Check out this new track from D.O.E. featuring Keri Hilson entitled “Coming Down.” D.O.E., formerly known as John DOE, is most recognized by his appearance on Timbaland’s “The Way I Are,” which also featured Keri.

I haven’t put it on the “A” pod yet, but it totally qualifies for the WORKOUT playlist! What do you guys think? Bump it….or Dump it?
