She's back - and ready to take it up another notch. Her 1st single Take Control is a dance floor smash and features Cee-Lo on backing vocals; if you liked 1 Thing, Take Control won’t disappoint. The album Because I Love It is stacked full of hits; to name a few, Crush shows Amerie's love of the 80's as she borrows from that sound with a chorus never to be forgotten, and Some Like It samples 80s legend Malcolm McLaren! Multi-talented Amerie has written and co-produced the whole album. Because I Love It was released on May 14th.
