New Song: Ameriie – ‘Outside Your Body’

Published: Wednesday 17th Nov 2010 by Trent

Here is the full version of Ameriie’s ‘Outside Your Body’. The song serves as the first single from the singer’s new album, ‘Cymatika Volume 1’, due in stores early next year. Give it a listen below:

The production is the key to this song (thanks to Andre Harris, Nikholai Greene and Kasey Phillips). It gives the track a Japanese Pop sound that is unique yet comparable the House/Dance productions of most of today’s major Pop hits.

The only observable flaws are Amerii’s almost one-dimensional voice and the underwhelming delivery on the verses. A bit more power would have definitely gone a long way. Nonetheless, the song is still impressive.

    oh excuse me *Ameriie (cant forget that 2nd i) ….this jus isnt Ameriie.shes always copying ppl. Her 1st album was her only album where she was being original. 2nd album (think 1 thing) was very Beyonce-ish and the 3rd? sorry i didnt hear that one and now this? umm can we say a lil bit of Gaga, Rihanna mixed in….please im over this chick

    it would be a ciara fan to love this lmao

  8. CiaraFan November 17, 2010

    No big label whoring her out and she still slays your fav, with her new and old stuff.

    WIth less budget/promo than most stars out today she still puts out solid albums.

  9. _Bawse November 17, 2010

    yea she hasnt stop and she aint selling records either so wat does that tell u? and actually i like ameriie…the ALL I HAVE ameriie. So STFU and go sit ur ass down and wonder how Ciara is going to sell some records bwuahahahahaha

  10. _Bawse November 17, 2010

    Beyonce is one of my fav’s, so she’s slaying Beyonce? she aint slaying no one but those Korean singers she likes to perform with #GirlBye

  11. CiaraFan November 17, 2010

    Turns this song up, while you listen to Beyonce sounding like the old Amerie/Rich, BYE! U never met or will meet Beyonce yet, u on that c***!!!!! When you can actually talk to Beyonce, or she knows who you are, u let me know h**. Until then let’s go to LONDON TOWN and PARIS yea!!!

  12. Dmarq November 17, 2010

    The song is impressive. I love how people compare her to Beyonce when its Beyonce who is the most overrated, and completely unoriginal artist around. She bites from everyone, even Ameriie. Ameriie had her style before Beyonce went solo, but because Beyonce is more popular she gets the credit. Shame on her and shame on most of the people that posted. Good job Ameriie. I support you. The song isn’t flawless but its still very good.

  13. jp5892 November 17, 2010

    this song definitly would of worked if someone with a stronger voice sang… see jessie j

  14. Put Em in Check November 17, 2010

    @ Bawse…she must be doing something right…three and soon four albums strong, still signed, still making more money than you, STILL doing her depsite what haters have to say and still have you checking for her flop, irrelevant, wack, non singing, non hit making, need to model ass. Go figure 😉

    Anywayz, I’m not into the dance songs but she pulls it off and I can see this doing very well overseas..not sure about the US.

  15. stan November 17, 2010

    the song is lukewarm to me

    but that photo of hers is THE BUSINESS. the whole look she had for “in love & war” album was really hot.

  16. lola November 17, 2010

    I can’t hear this song right now, but I am a big Amerie fan, or was, and I can tell you right now that she is one of the wackest and weakest singers of this generation! Her voice was so powerful and passionate when she came out with her first album and then she started screeching, singing all high and out of tune, and now she sounds a mess! Amerie can just never get it right. She graduated from college and is obviously extremely intelligent when she’s speaking so she knows how to use the right vocabulary and description when explaining her music. This whole House/Acid thing she is doing is just an influence from Gaga and everyone else who jumped on the electronic genre bandwagon. She wants to make it like she thought of something new and unique when in reality; she’s just taking what is trendy right now, mixing it up, and trying to create something of “her own.” The best music she’s ever done is contemporary R&B mixed with hip-hop. This includes the music from her first and second album, and first mixtape. She’s the type of artist who has to rely on a solid and committed fanbase to buy her music. Artists who succeed at this are Keyshia Cole (Platinum all three albums), Mary J Blige, Alicia Keys, and Sade. She should hook up with producers who make real contemporary R&B beats that consist of many instruments. Examples are Trey Songz and Bobby Valentino.

    THIS SONG IS AMAZING! Love the beat and the new sound of it. People PLZ listen to it with your headphones on! IT’S A SMASH! Ameriie delivered great work. And people dislike it because it’s not what you hear everyday. This is the future. Ameriie, well done!

  18. KAT DELUNA FAN November 17, 2010

    People are hypocrits ..You guys are happy to see Kelly Rowland to do what’s workin for her overseas but are mad at Ameriie for doing exactly the same thing ?

    Ameriie is one of my fab singers next to the like of Christina Milian,Kelis and others.Gosh,Why shoud Ameriie stop what she is doing to become an actress?
    That’s why people like Kim Kardashian are takin’ real singers spotlight.

    Ameriie do even a mixtape girl,miss U

  19. Trey November 17, 2010

    WOW this has to be the BEST song of the Yeaar for me. It’s so fresh & different!! No other singer is doing this now! I’m so proud of Ameriie for doing something new and tackling it with ease! So ready for Cymatika!!

  20. You Ain’t Know The Truth November 17, 2010

    @BAWSE My goodness, you ARE YOU DUMBB ASS HELLLLLLL
    Ameriie copying people? OMG listen. Ameriie NEVER copyed someone
    Why the hell do you think you know everything? It’s Beyonce who keeps jacking the others not Ameriie. TO ALL HATERS get a f****** life.

  21. 2BAD2BME November 17, 2010

  22. TheMan4u November 17, 2010

    PLEASE get back with Rich Harrison and do more songs like “One thing” this song is super WACK, hopefully this is just the International single

  23. Jas November 17, 2010

  24. You Ain’t Know The Truth November 17, 2010

    @BAWSE My goodness, you ARE YOU DUMBB ASS HELLLLLLL

  25. Dave November 17, 2010

    AMERIIE >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

  26. Timago November 17, 2010

    FLOPERIIE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  27. LARISSA JONES November 17, 2010

    What you guy’s talking about? This song rocks!!!!!!
    Some people are so close minded I swear… They wouldn’t know a HIT if it smacked them right in the face!

    I remember the times when people said Usher’s OMG was whack when it first came out.What happened????? It became a WORLDWIDE HIT.

    I can see the same happening with this… This is a good song….Very radio friendly.

    ***** 5 stars from me!

  28. NICK November 17, 2010

    I like it, it goes along with everything on the radio-DJ GOT US FALLING IN LOVE-BEAUTIFUL MONSTER-ONLY GIRL IN THE WORLD-RAISE YOUR GLASS-I think Amerie deserves a shot, b/c she can actually sing, she just needs a good team behind her….I’ll purchase this on iTunes (if it makes it there)

  29. royalkev November 18, 2010

    Very odd… this stinks and is hot at the same time.

  30. Rebecca November 18, 2010

    Not the typical Amerie, but it sounds aiight

  31. KD November 18, 2010

    Look up the definition for the word “persistance” and I am sure you will find a picture of Amerie next to it, this chick is like a freaking energizer bunny she never ever gives up (despite numerous failures). Wish her all the best (not a fan of her voice though).

  32. Kevin November 18, 2010

    love amerie !!, cuz she is amerie, and not beyonce… duh
    just like, i love beyonce cuz she’s is beyonce and not amerie

  33. youcansaywhateveryoulike November 18, 2010

    its a way better song than “only girl”, and i hated that one when it came out…but this’ll grow on u..love ameriie(but girl that second “i” is usseless(just like that second “s” i put in there
    ))

  34. J-T January 19, 2011

    Definitely a different direction for Amerie, and as a fan, I’m supporting it all the way.

    I’m thinking that this is going to be a big hit overseas, which I think should be her main focus. The United States isn’t God. Just because it isn’t big in the U.S., doesn’t mean it’s going to be a failure overall.
