Amerie - Why R U

Posted 7 years ago
Tags: Amerie , Club
Producer:
The Buchanans
Album:
In Love & War

On her first album, All I Have, Amerie showcased a typical smooth R&B style, while her follow-ups, Touch and Because I Love It, had a more uptempo sound.  Her upcoming senior album and Island Def Jam debut,  In Love & War, however, will be drastically different in tone than all three previous sets, focusing on the more painful side of love and relationships.  Amerie’s latest single finds her unable to get over an ex, wondering “Why R U the only one I think about?”  Amerie’s more bluesy-than-usual vocals, along with The Buchanans’ old-school-inspired beat, add up to a record that has already drawn comparisons to Mary J. Blige circa What’s the 411?  Since old-school is making such a comeback as of late, you can expect In Love & War to meet a warm reception when hit hits stores and digital retailers sometime late this summer.
