Rap-Up TV: Amerie and Electrik Red’s Binkie Interview Each Other

After the champagne was poured and the cupcakes were eaten, we handed the mic to Binkie, who took over reporter duties for Rap-Up TV at Rap-Up’s Pre-BET Awards Lounge at The London West Hollywood. The Electrik Red singer interviewed Amerie about her new album Cymatica Vol. 1 and then the tables were turned when Amerie questioned her about Electrik Red’s sophomore effort How to Be a Lady: Volume 2.

Binkie used to be a dancer for Amerie. “She was an amazing, amazing boss,” shared Binkie. “Even when I starved you guys ’cause I said that you missed a step?” joked A. Watch the old friends catch up.

    I love me some Amerie and who knew the talented ladies of Eletrik Red were backup dancers for Amerie. Well I hope Ameries new Album is epic because she deserves to more bigger and I jus love ameries bubbly personality. Vh1 or E! Channel should Amerie a show ASAP. Oh and before I go . . amerie need to go in the studio with more international producers like Paul van dyk, Rusko, Royskopp, Nervo Sisters, and more to grantee a more international spund.


  7. Supervillian

    this was a really nice interview thing. I like Amerie more now. She just needs to release a good song. And the international sound suits her more. But :( at Amerie releasing the album next year! I wanted it sooner not later.

    I wonder if Amerie is gonna do some reggae and electroclash mixed with new wave and dance punk. That would be so HOT!


  14. Dave

    Amerie is Amazing & Binkie is so Charismatic. Love the 2


  15. Zay

  16. LeeNeverXisted

    That was nice yo! Binkie is a trip lol, she hella funny! And my baby Amerie looking sexier than ever! She is the baddest female artist in the game. I don’t care what anyone says. She’s bad and I bet she know it too! I can’t wait to buy her new album next year. I always support my baby. And yo Rap-Up u guys should do a sequel of this. I think it would be dope and then when their albums are close to release, you guys could interview them and give sneak peaks on some tracks off the album! I think that would be amazing, plus no other blog is doing it!


  17. i.d

    I agree with Zay, you need to get them two featured monthly.

    Dat was a Kool interview. I hope she put out betta muzik dis time. She can dance she is creative and she got a cute personality. She jus need to release sum hits and step up her vocal game. Cuz in today market the only one with shot vocals dat is making it is Rihanna. Oh n she need to get new label or management…

    Electron red is cool but not really feelin them. Richgirl for the win!
