It’s been three years since the artist formerly known as Amerie released new material.
Now going by the name Ameriie, the singer is gearing up to release a new EP, ‘The Prelude’, the first of taste of which she served up today in the from of ‘Every Time’.
Take a listen after the jump…
While somewhat uneventful, the cut serves as a solid throwback to her more soul-flavoured days.
However, given her lengthy absence (a period which saw her marry manager Lennie Nicholson), we’re not sure a “prelude” is what the Career Dr ordered. She needs to strike and strike hard.
Immensely talented, the ‘One Thing’ singer has had the unfortunate happen-stance of never quite having the right team or material when it matters most. And with her last “hit-hit” being over six years ago, it’s relatively imperative that she smashes this go round. For, as the sales of her best material highlight (see: ‘Because I Love It’), the industry is oft unfair and unforgiving, willingly leaving behind the talented who don’t meet certain commercial benchmarks.
