Amerie In Love & War (Def Jam)Amerie

Def Jam’s newest inductee releases her fourth studio album, In Love & War today. There hasn’t been much promotion or press for Ms. Roger’s album, but I’ve always been a fan of hers since 2002 and she’s very much deserving of a mention. Amerie released “Why R U” this summer and there have been other leaks as her release date drew near. Hopefully her new label home will be her final nesting place and the new album proves to be as good as her previous releases.

So I’m not a huge fan of Country (although some of these newer artists like Carrie, Taylor and Miley makes me tap my feet when I hear their songs). Carrie Underwood is one of the top success stories of “American Idol”. She came onto the scene back in 2005 and shut down the Country music arena with her debut album Some Hearts and was also named 2005’s World’s Sexiest Vegetarian by P.E.T.A. She’s since released her sophomore album Carnival Ride which either didn’t make much of a wave as her first album, or I’ve been too focused on other genres of music to notice. Little Taylor Swift and Miley Cyrus may give Carrie a run for her money, but vocally the Country Carrie-baby outshines them both vocally.

Precious (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack) Precious

I’m seriously looking forward to watching this movie. The soundtrack alone features an array of artists from Mary J. Blige, Queen Latifah, Mahalia Jackson, Nona Hendryx, LaBelle and others. Haven’t heard one song from the soundtrack, but the features alone caught my attention. Go see the movie!
