Flashback to 2002, ’round summer time and one song may come to mind, “Why Don’t We Fall In Love” taken from Amerie’s much beloved debut All I Have. Fast forward to now, after the singers much publicized label drama , Ameriie (now with an added I) has returned with some new music.
“Every Time,” the first release from her forthcoming mini-LP, The Prelude offers a familiar sound, a nod to her solid R&B sound which defined the beginning of her career. Moreover, the track is sure to please Ameriie’s true fans as has since dabbled with a more progressive sound that did not translate so well with her fans and the industry alike.
While I for one appreciated her more evolved sound, I hope this is not the direction she’s headed, rather a mere reminder that she hasn’t forgotten her roots.
