New Amerie US Single Confirmed

Published: Thursday 5th Jul 2007 by Sam
It has been confirmed that ‘That’s What U R’ will serve as the first official US single from Amerie’s new album ‘Because I Love It’. Current single ‘Gotta Work’ will be for the European market only. ‘Because I Love It’ – the singer’s third album – will see its US release this summer; the CD is out now in Europe and other territories.

Though ‘That’s What U R’ isn’t the best track on Amerie’s new album, I’m liking the fact it was chosen as a single. It doesn’t sound like a rehash of her biggest hit to date ‘One Thing’ – whilst ‘Gotta Work’ arguably does. I’m hoping the song gives her the recognition she deserves; she’s a star over here in Europe, yet she struggles to crack the US.

What do you think of the single choice?

    I have a feeling “Gotta Work” will at least reach the top 10 in the UK, and as it’s similar and even better than “1 Thing” IMO I woulda thought it would do well in the US as well.

    I love TWUR though, so I hope this gets her some recognition.

    WRONG!!! ‘That’s What U R’ IS one of the best tracks on the album which is why it was such a travesty wen it was only used as an intro for that hideous video that is ‘Take Control’…its also the most R&B song on the album which wud be better received in the US market than the UK. Amerie deserves to do big things…or even bigger things

    I agree it was a shame that she chose That’s What You Are as a mere opening for the “Take Control” video. That’s What You Are is a great song and its a good choice for a single.

    I’m not a huge Amerie Fan but I heard “Thats What You Are” and that song is very good. It’s a nice little slow jam that showcases her voice. It will do very well on the US charts if she lets it.

    Amerie needs to give it up. She can’t compete with the other female artists out, sorry. People still don’t know who she is or what she’s about. ASk anyone if they really know who “Amerie” is and they be like “Who”? and then tell him she sings “1 Thing” and they’ll know that song, but not her. That song could have been sung by anyone.

    I love that’s what you are and I do think that it’s much better aligned with US sensibilities than most of the album is. Either that or hate2loveu would do well considering the R&B on the charts here.

    Skype has launched its online-structured client beta to the
    world, right after starting it extensively inside the Usa and
    U.K. earlier this calendar month. Skype for Website also now supports Linux and
    Chromebook for instant messaging connection (no voice and video however, these require
    a connect-in installation).

    The increase of the beta adds help for a longer set of languages to help bolster that international functionality
