(New York, NY) Multiple award winning, RIAA platinum singer and songwriter Amerie has completed her premiere album for Def Jam Recordings (her fourth career album), entitled IN LOVE & WAR, scheduled to arrive in the physical and digital marketplace in August.
Anticipation for Amerie’s new album reached a fever pitch when “Why R U” debuted May 11th on her MySpace website, http://www.myspace.com/ameriemimarie. New York City Hot 97 radio dj Funk Master Flex caught the buzz when he played “Why R U” for 15 minutes straight. The track officially goes to all radio formats on June 15th as the first single from IN LOVE & WAR. The video for “Why R U,” which premieres June 8th on BET, was directed by Ray Kay (whose credits include fellow Def Jam artist The-Dream’s “Shawty Is a 10” featuring Fabolous, Lady Gaga’s “Poker Face,” and more).
