Ameriie Eyes Spring Release for ‘Cymatika’

‘1 Thing’ singer Ameriie has been very busy considering her extended absence from the music scene.  Now, after marrying manager Lenny Nicholson, the newlywed is eyeing a return to the charts in 2012 with her 5th studio album ‘Cymatika’.

See what the Island Def Jam beauty had to say after the jump:

Right now I’m continuing the recording process for the album. The album is called Cymatika, which is named after cymatics, the study of visual sound.  The last album was very hip-hop soul, R&B, and rock, but this time I fused electronica and new wave, and a lot of classic song structure.

We’re thinking we’re going to put it out probably like spring of next year. It’s not finished yet. It’s all about the creative process.  Half the time by the time we deliver the album and it’s already mixed and mastered I’m on to the next sound.

Here’s hoping the singer’s ‘next sound’ is one that cements her place on the charts.  It is unfortunate that artists like Ameriie are losing their identities by succumbing to the wave that is electro-pop.  With early leaks like ‘Outside Your Body’ possibly indicating the direction the album is going, Mrs. Rogers-Nelson runs the risk of being trapped in that same cliche.

However, regardless of how the singer’s past attempts have fallen deaf on record buyer’s ears, her music has always been an eclectic fusion of genres that is much appreciated – even if only by devoted fans.  Let’s hope next-go-round, that appreciation expands.

    i love her but she needs to do better promotion

  2. Dollar$ign$kills July 8, 2011

    I miss the days where Amerie, Ciara, Cassie, and Ashanti were mainstream, selling albums and cracking the top 20 with ease. *Sigh* What happened to the contemporary R&B girls that I listened to all the time? Now the only one making it is Keri Hilson and she’s ew.

  3. jeremydante July 8, 2011

  13. RyanS July 8, 2011

  14. Kardanisha July 8, 2011

    Aw congrats and I’m so excited for Cymatika. You don’t know how excited I am, so happy because these other gorls are boring me. Especially a random nameless chick who thinks she runs the world but continues to STEAL from Ameriie. Tisk Tisk anyway go head Ameriie gorl, I’ll be waiting for your 1st single as well. Leggo

    You’re an idiot. Amerie is an artist, just because she’s doing Electropop doesn’t mean she’s sucumming to anything. Ameriie has always had a variety of sounds. She’s actually inspired to do so. & If you listened to “Outside Your Body”, you can see it sounds like nothing here, & even overseas. It sounds like International/Japan sounds fused w/ Electropop, dance, & house. & you see how the album is releasing next Spring. If she was sucumming it would’ve been rushed to be released now. By then, lord knows the new trend could be a different sound.

  20. Sheree July 8, 2011

    I always thought she was quite underrated. Although a lot of it was due to her not being promoted properly. Which is a shame. If you check for her stuff, she has a lot of hidden gems like Dear John, Gotta Work, Take Control among others.

  21. lola July 8, 2011

    I love Amerie, but it’s time to hang it up. She’s basically always been a flop. I mean, her first album sold over a million worlwide and so did her second, but it went all downhill from there. Plus, Def Jam doesn’t care about anyone but Rihanna’s stank, untalented, slu*tty a*s! Next spring? Are you kidding me? That’s a year away and just sad. Soon she’s going to want to have or actually have children. I think she should just go independent and focus on releasing music in Asia.

  22. honeybunz July 11, 2011

    i love amerie!! especially since she shows love and respect to aaliyah rip babygirl and she hasnt succumbed the smoke n mirrors and gimmicks all these chicks with no talent willingly do just to sell records!! today ppl just want quantity and not quality and its sad that these stans nowadays dont know the difference…ameriie is extremely underrated but in this wordly world much is to be expected…aaliyah was underrated…sade is disrespected and adele is mocked!! im glad amerie is living life has gotten married **congrats by the way** and not rushing to put out garbage music to appease the brainless drones who think girls run the world!! i must say with all the non sensical music out 2day its becomeing easier to spot the classy n worthwhile..ala ameriie..adele…blu cantrell..jill scott…beverley knight…i support REAL singers not satanic di*k riders!!

  23. Wesley July 11, 2011

    I like to say ‘F*** YOU’ to ANYONE calling Ameriie a flop!! She’s NOT a flop!! Even tho it went downhill after her ‘Touch’ album, SHE’S NOT A FLOP!!! Also, no one said that adding a extra i to her name is gonna help her to get more succes, that’s a really dumb comment to post! I’m done whit all you f****** saying that she can’t sing too! Atleast she’s recieving more money than u haters can get in yo entire silly life! Just cuz she struggles to reach some higher notes does NOT mean she can’t sing FACT! I’m done whit Ameriie haters, all her haters are fake douchebags who act like they never secretly danced on 1 of her songz! Get a life cuz we all know Ameriie has more talent than some artists getting all the shine & that she’s a more original & non swagger jacking-ish like some random chick who thinks she runs the world, believe me girl: YOU DON’T but i still luv u lol. Okay i’m done ^_^

  24. Wesley July 11, 2011

    And btw. She sold over 8 million (wich is really good 4 a woman they call R&B’s most underrated artist) , had multiple hits whit each album she released, never copies, and is much apreciated by other artists, WHO THA F*** are u calling a flop?
    See… that’s what makes me laugh about Ameriie haters, they think they know more about her than the smart people ( also called ‘Ameriie FANS!!!!!!!!!!!’ ) do! Say what u want abt Ameriie but she’s talented, gorgeous, creates/featured-on the dopest tracks, has a great behavior, is way too sweet (wich is a good thing) and she’s a good person and so NOT a flop…….. good NOW i’m done 🙂
