Song: Every Time
Artist: Ameriie
Album: The Prelude
Genre: r&B
In short: Since her hit single “1 Thing,” Amerie, or, Ameriie-
as she styles her name currently-has been struggling to find
her place among the plethora of artists that keep emerging
every hour of every day. After two albums that failed to make
an impact worthy of her name, Ameriie has decided to go
back to her roots with her upcoming Ep, titled The Prelude.
produced by Focus, “Every Time” is a throwback to the early
2000’s. Yes, music has developed rapidly the last few years
that now the term throwback wouldn’t look out of place next
to the noughties. Enjoy the great song, as it gets better and
better with each listen.
