I love Amerie but I’m totally disappointed with the direction her label has taken her in the past 6 or 7 years. At one time the game was mentioning this b**** name in the same sentences with Beyonce! She’s a great performer and her vocals are 100 but a combination of weak production choices and poor promo has decimated any comparisons to King B…

She’s recently married so expect the new material to be upbeat! Bangladesh, Swizz Beatz, DarkChild, Pharrell, The Dream, Tricky Stewart, Timbaland; these are some of the names I need to see on her credits. These n**** know how to make radio killers and that’s EXACTLY what she’ll need to ensure this albums success.. 

Beyonce’s promoting right now but the album, despite it’s brilliance is failing at radio.. If Am comes HARD she can start those comparisons up again, shake things up and match Beyonce like she did back in 03 and 04. All she needs is two strong single, 2 strong videos and some OVER performances in the right places… Will it happen?? Idk, but I’ve got high hopes. Goodluck Am!!

Yessss!!!!! This is one of the best songs on the album and the one I think is gonna be the hit she needs to push the whole project.  Her and Fabo have some mad chemistry, the video is FIRE! Luv the song, get it Ami!!!

The ending is the best part!!! COP “IN LOVE AND WAR” IMMEDIATELY!!!!

Def Jam’s Chicks Deliver The Best Albums of the 4th Quarter!!!

Def Jam’s Mariah Carey, Rihanna & Amerie have recorded the best 3 albums of the 4th quarter!!!

Mariah’s critical acclaimed follow up to 2008′s “E=MC2″ is arguably her best Def Jam release yet, the most listenable album of the year without a question. While Rihanna’s “Rated R” is one of the best produced, a fiery part II succeeding her mega hit “Good Girl Gone Bad”. Poor Amerie received the smallest promo budget but her album is solid, finding her at home in her r&b roots on a new label… These are 3 albums EVERYONE should cop before years end!!!

I was expecting a mess but got an album that should be titled “The Vindication of Amerie”!!!

It’s a great album, filled with production from small time producers and lyrics by writers no one knows. Somehow she turned out something brilliant and refreshing.

The Track List:

1. Tell Me You Love Me

2. Heard Em all

3. Dangerous

4. Higher

5. Why R U

6. Pretty Brown ft Trey Songz

7. More Then Love ft Fabolous

8. Swing Back

9. You’re A Star

10. Red Eye

11. The Flowers

12. Different People

13. Dear John

14. Heard Em All Remix ft Lil Wayne

The highlighted tracks above are the reasons Def Jam signed her in the first place.

Amerie is her best at her roots, which is in r&b. She can do the urban dance pop thing too, the Beyonce thing but she’s gonna have to get bigger names, stronger producers if she wants to really slay that genre.

“Pretty Brown” and “Different People” are my favorite songs but alas neither is a single, which is why this album is gonna debut so low and shift so few records it’s first week.

This is how the singles should have played:

1. Different People

2. Pretty Brown

3. More Then Friends

4. Why R U

5. Heard Em All Remix ft Lil Wayne

Releasing what should have been the last two singles as the first two is proving to be a HUGE mistake as I said months ago… Those songs aren’t strong enough to create buzz! Who ever is choosing singles for Def Jam’s females needs to sit down and not get up until I say so. I hope it’s not L.A Reid (Rihanna and Mariah Carey are suffering for the same reason)

The album as a whole  isn’t as listenable as I’d like nor are her vocals stellar; for that reason she won’t walk away from this review with a 4…

Overall this is a solid album that is gonna go unappreciated due to her management’s decisions. Amerie is vindicated at this point but not yet emancipated. She delivered with this album but the people in control need to be checked!

TrueClefMusic Rating: 3.50 out 5

amerie heard em all

Amerie’s album “In Love & War” is due via Def Jam November 3rd! I’mma a little excited about the whole thing to tell you the truth. I’ve always lived for her!

I don’t know how wise it is for her to drop an album so close to Mariah though… They don’t compete but Mariah has a habit of becoming TOPPP priority with Def Jam when she’s got an album to promote…

amerie new album

Amerie will return late this summer via Def Jam. Billboard reports the following:

After a two-year hiatus, singer/songwriter Amerie has announced the release of her Def Jam debut, “In Love & War,” which will be available in August. The lead single, “Why R U,” will be serviced June 15th, with an accompanying video directed by Ray Kay (The-Dream, Lady Gaga) premiering June 8th on BET.

Producers on the album include Teddy Riley, Sean Garrett, Eric Hudson, Jim Jonsin, Rico Love and The Buchanans, who helmed the first single. So far, no collaborations have been announced.

“In Love & War” is the Washington DC-natives fourth album, and follows her Columbia records debut, “All I Have” and her Sony releases “Touch” and “Because I Love It,” which was released in Europe. “All I Have” sold 661,000 copies in the United States, according to Nielsen SoundScan, while “Touch” sold 406,000.
