Amerie is back!
For those of you who dont know Amerie has been quite busy working lately. After the 2005 release of her sophmore album Touch, she recorded a third album titled "Because I Love It" in 2007. Due to two failed singles(Gotta Work & Take Control)Amerie and Sony BMG decided to part ways, however the album was released internationally, just not in the US. Amerie later signed a deal with Def Jam records and has been hard at work on her fourth studio album. It has just been announced that the new record will be titled " In Love & War". Her first single "Why R U" surfaced yesterday take a listen:
I definitely do not think this is a bad record. HOWEVER being that is a "comeback" single it lacks A LOT! This song sounds like what we have all heard from Amerie before. Its definitely a great Album song but as far as single material(1st single at that!) not so much....I guess we will just have to sit back and see how things pan out for Amerie over at Def Jam. Ill definitely support her! Amerie's new album is due out this summer! the track was produced by The Buchanans. Some of their work includes:
Crush-Amerie(Because I Love It)
Hip Hop Star-Beyoncé ft. Big Boi & Sleepy Brown(Dangerously In Love)
What More Can I Say- Jay Z(The Black Album)
A video for "Why R U" will be shot in LA later this week!
