Fans of Amerie have known that after being signed to Columbia/Sony for a few years, her contract with them was up, leaving behind three albums, one of which was not released in her home country. Then there was the obligatory compilation of hits.
While it has been quiet in Amerie-land, she hasn’t been dozing off. Instead she has been working on her debut for Def Jam, called In Love & War, scheduled for release in August. Radio stations have been adding the song “Why R U” (free MP3 download, 4.55mb), and the video for it will make its premier on June 8th.
With a big push from Def Jam via Universal, let’s hope she’ll be able to squeeze out more than two singles from an album.
