YRS Jerzy’s Wednesday Throwback: Amerie – “1 Thing”

By YRS Jerzy

In terms of modern music, most critics can agree that 2002 and 2004 were exceptional years for music. This isn’t a slight to 2003, in the least bit, because the music from 1998 until 2006 was all great. During this time, the singers and the ladies got their time to shine.

Maybe, it isn’t a coincidence that Amerie had the biggest moments of her career in 2002 and 2004. During the summer of 2002, Amerie delivered “Why Don’t We Fall In Love,” and the Ludacris remix. The song was unforgettable and considered a classic.

Amerie seemingly disappeared from the game and was long forgotten by 2004. To her, it made perfect sense to return, which she did with “1 Thing,” her lead single from Touch, her second album. This song is twelve years old, feel old yet? That more than qualifies it for the Wednesday Throwback.
