Amerie said that she’d be returning with new music, however, there were no indications of how soon that new music would be released. However, thanks to a recent announcement, fans got their long-awaited answer
On Friday (Oct. 19), the All I Have singer released two new musical projects, 4AM Mulholland and After 4AM. Each project is short but succinct in content and production- 4AM Mulholland has seven songs while After 4AM has six. This ends the “1 Thing” musician’s two-year hiatus from the game; her last musical project was her 2016 EP Drive.
“I didn’t want the album to be a smorgasbord of sound, it needs to have a vibe and that’s why there’s two projects,” Amerie told Billboard of her latest musical creations. The publication writes that the double project “pivots from her pop-leaning past hits into a deep dive of more subdued, cavernous R&B and trance-laced productions.”
“It’s like a pressure,” Amerie continued regarding her fervent need to create. “[It’s] like a teapot and I need to release the pressure. I really feel it, almost as a physical thing and it can keep me up and make me anxious — I’ve got to get it out.”
