I have to be honest, I really don’t expect Amerie’s new album, In Love & War, to do very well. As previously reported, the singer’s video debuted on 106 & Park yesterday and as I searched for a clear and unwatermarked copy to post here, I could not find one. I went to the sista’s official online website and it is old and hasn’t been updated in over two years. It is also still under the control of the label that dropped her- Columbia. So off I went to check out Def Jam- Amerie’s new record label. Sadly, she isn’t even mentioned on their website.
Not so much as a page was devoted to the singer and her video was nowhere to be found on the site as well. How is a singer going to be successful if her own record label doesn’t so much as acknowledge her existence?
So here I am having to link to an extremely poor quality version of the singer’s video (Daily Motion) because her label hasn’t made a quality version available to the public.
I wish the singer success but I really don’t think LA Reid is fully behind this project.
