Ameriie Ujima Interview 25/3/15

Tonight Wednesday 25th March on Ujima Radio 98fm U.S RnB Singer Ameriie will in conversation from 7pm ahead of her UK Tour which kicks off tomorrow in Nottingham 26th March – Birmingham 28th March – 29th – 31st March London.

In the decade since releasing her signature single “1 Thing” in 2005, Ameriie (formerly known as Amerie) has dropped buckets worth of incredible music from her 2009 LP In Love & War to her late-2014 release “Mustang” to “Gotta Work,” which was used in Mad Men commercials. But her new single “Out Loud” might get R&B fans hyped up the most  as it reunites the chanteuse with her longtime producer RICH Harrison, who worked on her first two albums that featured “1 Thing” and more.

Ameriie’s sweet-raspsy vocals are frosted over Harrison’s jolting, booming percussion production that recalls some of the duo’s best work together. While their past work focused more on throwback sounds, “Out Loud” looks ahead, embellishing the banging beats with fuzzy synths and electronica flourishes. “Out Loud” is the latest taste of the underrated singer’s new music as she looks ahead to release two albums this year. –
