took the world by storm with her debut release 'All
I Have' two years ago. The album featured hits like
'Why can't we fall in Love',
'Nothing like Loving You'
and the title track, so the burning question fans worldwide beckoned
upon the young songstress was 'Can she top that success?' Well
my friends I can tell you this - if her latest single is any indication
to what's in store for us on her sophomore album then 'YES', indeed
she certainly can
Although she's currently
in the studio working on her sophomore album that is yet to be
titled I might add, there is a new single called 'Think
of You' that can be found on the movie soundtrack
of 'Honey' that came out earlier
this year (starring Jessica Alba).
I know that it's been out for a while but hte song is a stand
out from the soundtrack and besides I just recently got the soundtrack
Produced by Rodney
Michael Jackson, Mary
J. Blige, and Usher
are just a few to mention), the song samples the 70s classic rare
groover 'Move me No Mountain'
by Love Unlimited (the group
formed by Barry White that
features his wife Glodean White
on vocals) as it's mainstay groove. A heart-felt baseline carries
the track throughout as Amerie
tackles the song head on with enthausist and gives a very soothing
yet polished vocal performance.
Ever since her infectous
debut album dropped, she's been appearing with the likes of LL
Cool J (the song being Paradise
where she appears in the video) as well as having her remake of
Diana Ross's 'I'm
Coming Out' appear on another soundtrack, 2002s Jennifer
Lopez vehicle 'Maid in Manhattan'
so she has been a busy gal to say the least.
The gorgeous young DC resident
is making a name for herself in the R&B arena and is quickly
becoming a star in the making with various other projects on her
agenda. No date available for the upcoming sophomore set but will
keep you posted - A worthy TY-D pick
indeed - period
