I first heard Amerie when she released her stunning single 'Why Don't We Fall In Love' back in 2001 (i think!) and when i heard this, her debut album, plus her collaborations with Nas, LL Cool J, Ludacris and DJ KaySlay, i instantly wondered why this girl hadn't had enough publicity in the UK- she is AMAZING!!! Her lyrics are soul-fresh, her beats are incredibly catchy and her voice is fantastic!!!!
Then, when she released '1 Thing' off her new album- o m g! Amerie is back and i can tell she is gonna be heard a lot more!
I think this song is my favourite on the album because it's so upbeat and its different from other r'n'b stuff around at the moment. 'Can we go' and 'Falling' are my other two fave tracks because, again, her style stands out above the usual and often genric R'n'B!
You should definitely buy this album! Its amazing!
I can't compare her to other R'n'B stars because her style is totally individual but i guarantee, if u like the following: Aaliyah (R.I.P God Bless), Ashanti, Mary J. Blige, Blu Cantrell, Utada Hiraku and/or Faith Evans, you will certainly adore Amerie- i know i do! Also, a lot of her beats/music reminds me of Lil' Kims music too- though not the lyrics!!
Happy Listening, to i think, one of the best albums of the year!
