Some may not remember Ameriie, but she debuted as Amerie in 2002, dropping the hit single, “Why Can’t We Fall In Love?” The song was successful during the summer of 2002. A remix featuring Ludacris also had success.
In 2005, Amerie returned with “1Thing” and it became a tremendous success. Despite being written off as a one hit wonder, Amerie returned with another hit. Now, people write her off as a one hit wonder over the “1Thing” success.
Regardless, Ameriie feels like everything is about timing, which she shared with “The Breakfast Club.” Talking to DJ Envy, Angela Yee, and Charlamagne Tha God, Ameriie discussed her label transitions, beginning on Def Jam. She also spoke on her love for writing and books, the new EP, Drive, the seven year hiatus, and her new music.
