New Music: Ameriie – ‘Outside Your Body’

Ameriie

Ameriie journeys around the world on “Outside Your Body,” the Euro-pop lead single from her fifth album Cymatika Vol. 1, due next year. The track, written by Ameriie and produced by Andre Harris, Kasey Phillips, and Nikholai Greene, takes listeners on an international tour, infusing the banger with blinding synths and an infectious melody.

“Tell me where you want to go/ Let me take you to London town and Paris, yeah/ Tokyo and Seoul,” sings the sexy singer on the chorus before adding a few lines in Korean.

“‘Outside Your Body’ is about the recognition that we are eternal beings, that these physical bodies are not who we are, and how we should remember and celebrate our unlimited potential. We have no limits,” Ameriie explained to Rap-Up.com.

Listen to the upbeat tune below.

    Okay, I like it more than I did when I listened to the snippet. I like the hook, and the Korean. This song is still weak, with verses that sound very bubblegum. Meh. Come harder, Amerie. Link up with Rich Harrison, again, please.

    OMG this is the BOMB. All the haters from yesterday are completely shown up for bitching over nothing! Funny how the song itself is about discontentment and envy and so all the people whining about the snippet should listen even closer!!! Maybe they’ll understand themselves better

    This song is B O M B

    The verses lead into the chorus so well

    this is surprisingly hot. actually i’m not that surprised, because amerie has always been consistent in delivering great music, but for a dance track it’s dope. i can see where she’s trying to go with this cymatika album.

    I listened to the entire song…and..Its kinda cute…but not gonna be a hit in the US. If she focuses all her efforts on European markets she could really be big…but sweetie…it’s not gonna happen for you over here. I don’t know why these girls are so PRESSED to flop in the US when they could be doing MAJOR things overseas.

    This beat is way too generic… This would fit in a Soundtrack or something, but nothing to write home about.

  21. Maya What

    Ok, HUGE AMERIIE fan have all her albums but when I heard the snippet I was like what’s going on? I can never doubt AMERIIE the song is HOT!!!!!!!!!!! Love the breathing in the beginning and the hard beat and the robot voice that comes on after the chorus. The chorus needs to grow on me a little because it loses that sick beat the song has at the beginning.
    Love AMERIIE and the new album as usual songs very promising!!!!!!!!!
    GO TEAM A!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    The video theme needs to be in a club.

    sounds like the gay people would eat this up…sounds like a updated version of daft punks “one more time” song….it’ll probably flop..i love amerie but try again..dont fall with the trend of todays techno music..continue to make real music

    [Reply]

  25. Kelton

    WOW! This is kind of awesome and the hook is addictive after a couple of listens. I see this being a hit overseas. The US is very shallow for the most part so I’m not sure but she could do well here too. She won’t be doing anything at Urban though lol

    I knew I should not have listened to this song while at work because that chorus is IN MY HEAD!!! baby lets go baby lets go (i know thats right)

    LOVE IT! THIS WOMAN IS AMAZING! If you’re close minded & just wanna listen to R&B, Ameriie is NOT the “ARTIST” for you. Love the production/beat her breathy background vocals & the high note she hit @ the end. I SWEAR SHE’S MY ROLE MODEL!

    @ the people who only want her to sing R&B:
    if U can only listen to 1 genre of music, AMERIIE is not the artist for U! keep being a basic B**ch & continue listening to your generic R&B!

    LOL,
    I’m at work listing to it with my headphones on trying not to get caught by my boss! Love Ameriie this girl can’t do any wrong by me.

  33. Nadia

    I held my comments so I could hear the entire song and not just the snippet from the other day. But if THIS song is any indication of what the rest of her upcoming album is going to be like, she should retire now before she owes the record company her first born.

    I’m convinced that Ameriie is writing most of these comments which praise this song, because it is a MESS!! She needs to get with Rich and pronto…she’s lost without him.

    [Reply]

    And whoever the idiot is that keeps cursing people out, CHILL OUT!! It’s their own opinion. Grow up!!

    You have to admit that you’re not in the position to tell anyone to “Grow up” after the childish, catty comments you have posted.

    I am not Ameriie and think the song is great! No one really needs your snoody attitude! Take it somewhere else!

  42. HHH7387

    @ Dave and AnnkA,

    The both of u need to understand that people want A to do R&B because that what she does best! She’s been experimenting with different sounds on her last 2 albums, and it’s been pretty good. But what she’s doing now is going overboard, she’s stepping into a totally different zone that’s not gonna really help her out in the end. On the surface, it seems like she’s jumping on the bandwagon of the dance craze.

    The real reason why she’s going down this route is because people have not appreciated the great music that she’s been puting out since 2002, and now she’s caving into the pressure.

    [Reply]

  43. HHH7387

    What A should have done was expanded on the Rock sound that she gave with the song “Higher”. She even had a performance where she showed off her guitar skills.

    [Reply]

  44. Paula

    Ok, I listen, and listen and read through the comments and I have to say one thing (no pun) before I give my opinion.
    I’ve seen a couple of Ameriie should go back with Rich Harrison for production. Ok, why?? if she stays stuck in 05 then you haters would simply cry no growth. She has obviously out grown that sound. The world isn’t even on that page. I love the sound they had but I don’t want to hear that now!?!?
    and Rich hasn’t done a hot record in about 3-4 yrs. So who knows where his production vibe is. So back to rating…. I LOVE IT!
    I appreciate Ameriie having no fear. She seems to do what she feels so.. its not for everyone, if your not feeling just accept that it wasn’t made for you!

  52. Bobbi

    Yo I’m feeling it!!!!!!!!!! Ameriie if you’re looking at this blog you gotta do the video in a cave club in Ibiza Spain. They have these caves that are clubs and the scene is sick. The dancers are in cages, swinging from the ceiling like trapeze acrobats and they have this sick foam parties. Once the sun comes up everyone heads out on to the beach where the party moves too it’s so sweet and sick at the same time. It would be off the chain!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I can’t wait for the club/house DJ’s remix this right here, it’s gonna be even sicker!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I could see this being popular in Asia … especially the chorus reminds me a lot of a few J-Pop and K-Pop songs I’ve heard
    but… otherwise sounds like a TOTAL FLOP to me.

  55. Dirrty Toni

    …I kind of like it. maybe it will grow on my, but I doubt that. ;) well, she will be successfull in South Corea with it (K-POP) The rest of the world will not really listen…

  56. Becca

    LOVE IT!

    the haters are just too simple-minded to understand other genres. Amerie has real TALENT, she can do any style and still kill it.

    Haters I empathize with you because i know you just cannot understand something as creative as this. Go back listening to “Video Phone”.

  57. Jay S.

    I LOVE AMERIIE, AND IM NOT SAYING THAT THIS SONG IS BAD BUT LETS KEEP IT REAL, WHEN AN ARTIST SAYS “THEYRE GOING FOR A MORE INTERNATIONAL FEEL” THEY MEAN DANCE/POP MUSIC. WHY? BECAUSE BESIDES COUNTRY MUSIC, THATS WHATS IN AND SELLING RIGHT NOW. IM NOT KNOCKING HER TRYNA GET HER PAPER UP.

  62. Andrew

    YES AMERIIE!! Give me that Rick James/ Tokyo/ Korean-Pop funk!

    I love this jam, and I’m so happy Ameriie has found some sort of groove that is marketable. With that said, I hope she doesn’t forget to give me some soul on the album.

    Saul, as for as making it in the US goes, I don’t know if that’s such a big deal? I think she’s got that international paper and really, money is money. If she delivers a fierce video to match the jam it’ll be received just fine in the US/Canada – trust.

  63. Kyle

    The song is pretty catchy and I cannot wait to hear more from her upcoming album. She’s always been the underdog on the R&B scene but I don’t mind because I think her music is always consistant.

  64. Attitude!

    Please give it up Amerie!!Yeah yeaah all you so- called “fans” who like downloading her music but when she releases an album barely any people will go out and buy it. So hushh up with that ” I love her music bullshit”

    I was trying to avoid this song because I think her music is stuck in a time warp…but glad she finally came into 2010 and this is hot! I actually suppose to be going to Paris in January so I hope this is hot by then.

    Yes this song shitted on EVERY song on Rihanna’s album and anything Beyonce/Alicia Keys have ever done in their life and thats fact. Nobody out is doing K-Pop/J-Pop so this is def a fresh new start with some exciting beats! I can’t wait to see the video and everything this era has to offer. Ameriie > any other female artist out & that includes beyonce!

    THIS IS THE TYPE OF MUSIC SHE NEEDS TO STICK WITH. I CAN SEE KERI HILSON SINGING THIS. SHE NEEDS TO GO POP TO. NOBODY WHO SING R&B MAKE MONEY EXCEPT ALICIA KEYS

    [Reply]

  72. Dave

    @HHH7387 No, she’s gonna do what she wants to do Cleary, regardless if people like it or not. Who say’s she’s on a bandwagon? She started with an international sound on “Because I Love It” & She actually went out & got producers & everything for these sounds, the inspiration & all that. & if anything this sounds more electronic, house, dance music on a more organic level than what everyone else has put out. I’m gonna have my opinion & it’s gonna stay as is. I could care less about what others think of what I’ve said. I’m just saying if you expect her to keep doing R&B you are going be seriously disappointed.

  73. Chris

    Seriously Haters??? WOW! You guys think you have it all figured out, don’t you? Well I’m a HUGE Amerie fan, and I like that she has the balls to do something different even if people don’t like it or get it even? The whole feel for this Cymatika Vol. 1 album is house, trance a lil euro… However this is just a snippet of what’s to come. I would love it if people looked deeper and move along in their minds to see that in all actuality amerie has played it safe for a while and now is ready to change it up. I love the sound to this song, it is a sample of an ol’ skool song; that’s hot!

  74. harvey

    Umm this is amazing plus amerie vocals sound falsetto now thats awesome.I can see this on the U.S Dance charts umm maybe pop 100 cause robyn dance and she slaying the pop 100 so A should have a good chance of makein top 50.im so lookin for A to go back to her roots for cymatica part 2 tho.

    this is like one of her best songs ever, but bcuz it’s a dance song, i’m afraid due to its simplicity, i might not listen to it or love it for a long time…but as off now, i’m feeling it…she sure had the guts with this….it’s her most k-pop ish song ever, not as confusing as 1 thing, not as stylish as Take Control, not as sexy and Touch, not as deep and desperate as WHY R U, but definitely k-pop enough….i hope this type of genre trends, cuz it’s great….같이 가요 같이 가요 BaBy Let’s Go Baby Let’s Go

    I love amerie she is very original to me but she is always overlooked by a lot of people.she is suppose to b farther in her career by now.this song is nice but I’m sure this is not what the audience wants to hear from her.this looks like another flop for amerie sorry.but i still love her though.
