New Video: Amerie – ‘More Than Love (Ft. Fabolous)’

Published: Thursday 24th Dec 2009 by Trent

Singer Amerie has just released the video for her new sing’e ‘More Than Love’ from her ‘In Love & War’ album. The clip for the Del Pearson and Lenny Nicholson-produced track features rapper Fabolous. To date, ‘In Love & War’ has yet to surpass 30, 000 units in US sales.

Simple and to the point, this video really encapsulates the message of the song. Although the extended narration at the beginning was quite tedious to endure (it was over a minute long), the rest of the clip served its purpose. Conversely, one has to wonder if this single has the potential to save Amerie’s project. With Fabolous’ verse being the most interesting facet of the track, I am still baffled as to why the label chose to release this song as a single. However, the mere fact that her camp is still supporting her by releasing this is a sign that maybe they still have hope that ‘In Love & War’ has some life left after all.

Thoughts?

    Huh? Why are you even bothering to post this garbage? The song sucks, and the video looks like it cost about $200 TOTAL. Damn. She was already wearing Britney Spears’ and Ciara’s hand-me-downs in all the promo shoots. If you’re gonna support less-known singers – why can’t you dig a little deeper to people who are ACTUALLY talented like Santogold???

    I still haven’t actually seen any point to the addition of this “Trent” character. His “critiques”, if you can even call them that, have been even more negative that Sam’s in recent months. The writing style of this site has fallen dramatically, and is increasingly negative to anything but Beyonce. The “credible” source that this site once was, is now falling into the same caliber of The National Enquirer.

    Even Media Take Out is probably better.

    Made my day – most relatable amerie ive seen to date.

  4. thebooreport December 24, 2009

    She looks beautiful and I like this video.

    She seems to be talented at acting, I wish she’d do more acting roles.

    The song is a little blah to me though.

    BOBS = loser

    YAY AMERIE!! too bad this will flop as well 🙁

    Yeah this upsets me that she would release this over “Pretty Brown.” It was a smarter idea to capitalize on her Trey Songz duet now.

    This Fabo Collabo is so drowsy and just overall ugh. I’ll stick to supporting “Pretty Brown,” over this boring, no energy song. If she was gonna switch it up single wise, it should have been “Swag Back.”

    Now, this project is completely doomed!

  7. bobs December 24, 2009

    Just saying this music is generic trash, and there are much better – lesser known singers who deserve a post than a chick who has a major label contract and can’t even push 20k in sales. Look beyond!

    I am still trying to figure out why they have her talking at the beginning for over a minute? Its not that serious, I am a Amerie fan but this song isn’t cutting it for me nor is the video.

  9. stan December 24, 2009

    i love me some amerie, but truth is, this project is done. idk what they could’ve done to salvage it, tbh.

  10. B December 24, 2009

    Other than the 1 minute narrative (IDK who in their right mind came up with that idea), I really like the video. It had a plot to go with a song that actually tells a story. And Amerie is simply gorgeous! The song is cool, not the greatest, but it’s also a slight step away from her normal sounding songs. I agree that Pretty Brown would’ve been a better single choice. But we all know from Janet and Mariah’s last projects, that LA Reid has no idea what he’s doing anymore!!! My message to Amerie, GET OUT OF YOUR DEAL ASAP!!!!

  11. oz December 24, 2009

    fabo’s verse was dope but it def was NOT the highlight of the track. amerie did the damn thing writing this song and the video is so cinematic. good look on both ends. let’s hope this gets those album sales up. remember folks, quantity does NOT equal quality. “in love and war” is a masterpiece! don’t sleep on amerie!

  12. oz December 24, 2009

    also, so of you guys needa get your ears checked. this song is a f***** gem!!! you guys really don’t know quality. so sad to see that this is the state of the consumer mind now:(

  13. Anon December 24, 2009

    I actually like the song, but the video…. I don’t know what to tell Amerie. I think she needs to go to a smaller label and tour like crazy; however, i ‘m not sure her hustle is strong enough to make it. I never see her anywhere other than magazines, and that just won’t cut it.

  14. Dave December 24, 2009

    She’s talented. Y would she not support her career? Unlike I will say who trent didn’t say RIHANNA, she can SANG, WRITE, PERFORM, get INVOLVED IN her MUSIC & CAREER. The song is a promo single actually. Her next single is really “swag back.” I don’t really care if the music charts. As long as she doing real s*** & real music & not being on that mainstream tip that everyone wants to hop on, and join the illuminati.

  15. Gary December 24, 2009

    Wow the girl is looking fierce
    The song is FYIAAAAAAAAAA
    The video ( it’s actualy the 5th time i’m watching it ! ) Is awesome , love it , To beggining to end.

    Hope she will succed soon , cuz with this one , she just got me !

  16. SR December 24, 2009

    I’d have to agree with Dave and some of the others. Fans of less mainstream R&B will like this. AS I DO, one of the best off the album. Classic Amerie. The song isn’t a mainstream radio friendly single, why? because it isn’t infused with a dance / club bangin’ beat. I respect others opinions, at the same time if you don’t like it, just move on. It’s another level of disrespect tearing down others art / work. If it isn’t your cup of tea, don’t sip on it.

  17. J December 24, 2009

    Aww,Lawwddd! I wasn’t really feeling the track at first,but now seeing it with the video,it’s growing on me! And what can we do about those sales?? Mariah, Amerie, Alicia,what the hell is going on here?!? (Other than a recession). Now,I favored “Memoirs of an Imperfect Angel” above the other two,but they’re all good CD’s. There are some jenky things happening at those labels!. Whether it be WACK videos(Mimi) or no promo whatsoever (Amerie), it needs to be changed for 2010!

  18. number1k9 December 24, 2009

    This is not a promo single. If that’s the case, where and what happened to the “Pretty Brown,” single treatment? If Def Jam pays for another music video (even tho this one wasn’t much) I will be surprised.

    I am truly starting to believe that Amerie doesn’t want the fame anymore. She needs to be putting herself out there way more! Like she should have an opening spot on the Black Eyed Peas or Lady Gaga’s tour. Which would be sad on the Gaga tip, cuz she is a more established (since 2002) artist.

  19. December 24, 2009

    she can’t just wiggle her nose and get onto gaga’s tour.
    she has to have good people around her in order to succeed.

  20. rightround(U.S.A pride!) December 24, 2009

    oh gosh, she HAS to have at least ONE song on the album that could enter the Top 20 on the billboard charts! this is garbage!
    I know many will call it “selling your soul”, but Amerie should try going MAINSTREAM if she wants to see SOME sort of success in her career. real talk.

  21. Mario December 24, 2009

    Is it me or do Amerie reminds you a little of Kourtney Kardashian

  22. ant December 24, 2009

    i love this song and the video made me like it more. The rooftop argument scene was a fav her “WHAT?!” face was priceless lol.
    She so slept on…yall need 2 actually listen 2 all her cds b4 yall try 2 judge her and her music..jus sayin words 4 though or action.
    All the best Amerie. get the right team around u..new management, better promo, publicist etc

  23. denise December 25, 2009

    as many songs as amerie do she still gon be a flop just like ciara is…

    NEXT

  24. Dave December 25, 2009

    @ SR, I completely agree

  25. LOS December 26, 2009

    CIARA ACTUALLY IS NOT A FLOP ….JUST CAUSE HER LAST CD DIDNT DO WELL ..HER ALBUMS HAVE SOLD VERY WELL…BETTER THAN SOME OF UR FAVS

  26. Eva December 26, 2009

    I love Amerie and all her CD’s were dope a** hell. I hate to say it but she needs to drop her boyfriend manager Lenny. Don’t mix business with pleasure Lenny is not a good manager.

    I’m down with you though girl keep it going.
