Amerie Brings The Mic Close, Her Listeners Closer

Jun 9th, 2009 // 2 Comments


Amerie’s video for “Why R U,” which is the first single off what I guess is going to try and be her comeback album In Love & War, is a pretty standard affair: Amerie stands and lounges in front of various walls while miming the track, flaunting her legs to maximum effect. I’m hoping that Def Jam’s attempt to remarket Amerie after the fizzling of Because I Love It works on both a commercial level and an appealing-to-me level. And it’s probably a good sign that “Why R U” has grown on me a lot since its release last month–although I’d be remiss if I didn’t say that feeling was in large part to it being included on the better-with-every-spin ziptape The Future Of R & B: Volume 26, which you should definitely snag if you haven’t already.

  1. I’m hoping that Def Jam’s attempt to remarket Amerie after the fizzling of Because I Love It works on both a commercial level and an appealing-to-me level.

    I know, right? I’m trying reeeeeeeally hard to love the Dear John song that leaked the other day, and right now I only like it a so-so amount.

  2. I’m rather excited. This song is the jam.
