According to UK's Daily Star Def Jam has made an offer Amerie couldn't refuse and she has reportedly signed with them. I'm still waiting on the official DJ press release before I believe it.

What do y'all think of that?


You asked for it so here it is - Chrisette Michele's video for "Love is You"










I love her new haircut and color - I'm not crazy about this video but I'm glad she made one for the song.

In the UK, the Daily Star is the equivalent of National Enquirer: Gossip, trash... but with naked girls in the paper!

Anythingto do with Akon, I don't want to hear it or hear of it. Good for Amerie if it's true maybe she can bring out another album. The Chrisette Michele video was alright.

Good! Amerie is one of the most all around talented artists in the music industry. She actually writes her own songs and is intelligent in interviews. And while she doesn't have a voice like Mariah or dance like Janet. She can do everything and does it well. And especially compared to the trash clones they throw at us, her unique and ever changing sound is always refreshing. Good job A!

I FORGOT! I'm from Annapolis, 20 minutes out of DC, and I want to thank you for representing Maryland and Virginia so well. I'm proud to say that a georgetown grad who is classy, respectful, talented, and beautiful keeps her integrity in a business where they seem to try and strip you of it is doing her thing. Thats a real woman.

all i can say is that amerie is a pretty girl... she has fallen off completely because of her need to be relevant, based on the material on her last few albums.... the first album was very good, from start to finish but the albums that followed weren't much. if def jam isnt doing janet any good, then how do u think they will treat amerie? i guess only time will tell.

i drool over Amerie

the mere mention of Amerie causes me to salivate and grab my bib. good lordy she foine..

I like Ray Lavender that is a nice song the video could use some work but hey I love nice R&B!

Love Chrisette! Her cd is still on repeat in my car!

Amerie + Def Jam = hmmmmmmmmmm?

Lauryn is the truth and that mix is right on time. I wonder if she did a rerelease of that CD how fabulous would it be! I knoooooowwwww I would buy it! I already have 2 copies b/c the first was scratched so bad from playing it a million times! Man those were the days!

LETS BE REAL. Black woman dont do rain. Getting there hair wet and shit, that shit don't work for them. And you can tell thats a new do. You think she's just going to run out in the rain cause some dude made her mad HELL NO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Not way, not happening.

Nobody in this world is happier than Soulman for Amerie's new contract...I bet he's planning a block party in Brooklyn right now to celebrate! Don't yall remember the days when he would stan for her an talk about her 'swagger'. Don't u miss those days KSH

Why did Amerie walk out of one losing situation and walk into another. She left Columbia where Beyonce is the top girl just to go to Def Jam where Mariah and Rihanna are the top girls. Yall know Def Jam aint trying to give any female artist promotion unless your Rihanna and Mariah.....just ask Janet. I understand she wanted to get from under the shadow of Beyonce at Columbia but she could have found some place better than Def Jam. I dont see anything changing for her....she will remain a FLOP.

I dont work here anymore, so keep ya name out my mouth soulfulone

I thought that I heard Tank in there before they showed him. I was thinking, damn that sounds just like Tank! I like the song but it sounds too much like Tanks song. I think he should have stepped back on the background vocals some so you could distinctly hear Ray Lavenders sound instead of Tanks sound.

Amerie's a hot piece of ass.

BTW, does anyone consider that Lauren Hill disc a "classic"?

I sure as fuck don't.

No one is coppin' that shit. Fuck outta here with that shit.

I'm a dumb ass. Lauryn Hills CD is a classic. I must have been smoking crack when I made the above statement. Forgive me as I am only worth 20 dollars.

Shit bitch, like that was me.

Lauren Hill been sucking dicks.

This broad SUCKS as an artist and she got a free pass cause she was rollin' Fugees.

That album sucked dick, and the dumb fucking bitch population bought that abortion of an album.

Lauren has always, and will always, suck giant cock.

That no-talent Cunt can't figure out if she wants to be Badu or Beyounce.

News Flash Bitch!

It's over and done with. Off your ugly Whoopi lookin' ass.

You done fucked up the Fugees so I'm SCREAMIN' FUCK LAUREN HILL AND HER RACIST UGLY ASS.

DIE SLOW HO!

The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill album is definitely a classic! I don't believe another female R&B artist has actually topped that album since. It was real and pure. It was raw with emotions. Too bad that she lost her damn mind afterwards. She truly was a great artist.
