New Music: Ameriie – ‘What I Want’

What I Want

Ameriie is back! Five years since her last album, the singer returns to her roots on her new single “What I Want.” The funky track finds her belting over a soulful sample of Sugarhill Gang’s “Apache.” Much like her 2005 Rich Harrison-produced hit “1 Thing,” the irresistible number features a go-go rhythm and a catchy chorus.

“That’s what I want, yeah, that’s what I want,” she chants.

Ameriie has been in the studio working on the follow-up to 2009′s In Love & War, previously titled Cymatika, Vol. 1.

Watch the lyric video below.

New Music: Ameriie – ‘What I Want’ [Snippet]

Ameriie

It’s been nearly five years since Ameriie released her last album In Love & War. But the D.C. singer is ready to return to the spotlight. She took to Instagram on Thursday to preview a new song called “What I Want.”

The 15-second snippet features a go-go sound that will remind you of her 2005 Rich Harrison-produced hit “1 Thing.”

“That’s what I want, yeah, that’s what I want,” sings A over the funky percussion.

The last we heard from Ameriie was in March 2012 when she released the Focus-produced “Every Time.” She was working on an album called Cymatika, Vol. 1, but it never saw the light of day.

Get a taste of Ameriie’s new track below.

New Music Premiere: Ameriie – ‘Every Time’

The Prelude

Just when you weren’t expecting it, Ameriie returns with a brand new song off her upcoming mini-LP The Prelude. The sexy chanteuse takes it back to familiar territory on the first offering “Every Time,” produced by Focus. The mid-tempo R&B cut will remind listeners of her 2002 debut All I Have, as a lovestruck Ameriie sings about missing her man.

“Every time I close my eyes, every time I close my eyes all I see is you/ Every time I hear your name, every time that my phone ring, I’m missin’ you,” coos Ameriie, who wed her manager Lennie Nicholson last year.

More details on The Prelude will be announced soon, but until then, Rap-Up.com has your first listen.

“I just wanted to go short and my personality loves extremes, so I went uber short,” she told Rap-Up.com. “I call it a ‘bixie’ because it’s a cross between a bowl cut and a pixie cut.”
