Four years have passed since Ameriie‘s last album ‘In Love & War’ hit stores; what’s more, it’s been double that since the singer enjoyed the taste of commercial success.
And while recent years have brought promises of a “comeback”, the 33-year-old has been relatively quiet on the musical front.Array
However, that all looks set to change if the diva follows through on her latest announcement.
Details after the jump…
Taking to Twitter today, the starlet – who added an additional ‘i’ to her name because “the vibration felt right” – revealed that she’s working on a sequel to 2007 LP ‘Because I Love It’. She wrote:

On the one hand, we’re wondering what this means for the long-touted ‘Cymatika’ album she’d been working on. Yet, on the other, we’re just glad she’s actually recording and hopeful that the material will legitimately see the light of day this time. The original ‘Because I Love It’ was an absolute ball of brilliance. Hence, anything modelled in its retro, 80’s blueprint would be divine.
In a broader sense, though, we’re still rooting for Ameriie because her narrative feels like one of unfulfilled potential. Incomplete, if you will. Indeed, on paper she has it all – voice, looks, isms, plus the ability to work a stage. Yet, industry politics have marred each and every project she’s released.
Additionally, in an era where the wilder the antics/the bigger the star (see: Rihanna, Miley Cyrus), educated Amerrie – for some misguided music execs – becomes almost “boring”. Sad, as her albums are often stellar – save for the dreadful ‘In Love & War’. She played herself with that one. But we digress..
She doesn’t just have “it”, she is “it”. As such, we can only hope the public see that upon her eventual return.
