Finally we get some material from Amerie’s forthcoming debut on Def Jam “In Love & War”! The long awaited first single does not disappoint in the slightest and continues from the old school rap-inspired beats of her fantastic last album. The Buchanans (who produced one of my favourite tracks “Crazy Wonderful” on her last album) use a heavy drum beat which could easily have been lifted from a 90s New Jack Swing track and Amerie’s arrangements and lyrics are on point as always. The track has got me extremely excited for her album, but I should know by now, having loved all three of her previous records that she’s gonna bring the heat. I cannot wait to see the Ray Kay-directed vid, which she apparently finished up filming recently, its always guaranteed hotness when two talents like Amerie & Ray Kay get together!
