Amerie Announces Album Title, Release Date

Fans of Amerie can finally stop holding their breath. The R&B songstress confirmed the name of her fourth studio album, Break Ups to Make Ups, today via her Twitter page. The project, set for release in June/July, is her first with Island Def Jam.

“As an artist, what I want more than anything is for you to feel where I’m coming from, for you to FEEL,” Amerie wrote in a tweet. “I don’t know how to put it any other way.”

The “1 Thing” hitmaker is currently in the studio recording with producer Warryn “Baby Dubb” Campbell, who has crafted hits for R&B singer Musiq Soulchild and gospel group Mary Mary.

Amerie was formerly signed to Columbia Records. Her previous album, 2007’s Because I Love It, received a limited release.
