News that undoubtedly had many scratching their heads last week were reports 2000’s R&B singer Amerie was trending on Twitter for her signature hit, ‘1 Thing,’ being included on the list of the 2010s’ best songs. Its mention on the tally was all the more confusing as it was actually released in 2005.
Despite the mix-up, the Grammy nominee – currently blazing stages across America on the ‘Femme It Forward’ tour (alongside Brandy, Monica, Ashanti, and many more) – is soaking up the attention and took to social media before the new year to not only express her appreciation but also tease forthcoming 2020 projects.
In addition to announcing work on a new studio album, her first since 2009’s ‘In Love & War,’ the 39-year-old revealed she’s toying around with the idea of going on an ‘anniversary tour’ to celebrate the release of her debut effort, 2002’s ‘All I Have,’ as it approaches its 20th birthday.

While Amerie hasn’t released a studio effort since 2009’s critically-acclaimed ‘War’ (featuring the moderate R&B hits ‘Why R U’ and ‘Heard ‘Em All’), she’s tided fans over since with multiple EPs over the last decade.
