Amerie  recently spoke with Rap-Up to announce that instead of being Amerie, she will now spell her name as Ameriie (with two “I’s”).

I operate on vibes and intuition, and I believe everything is energy; the vibration of the double I is right for me. Slightly different spelling, completely same pronunciation!

Additionally, she reports to the site that she is back in the studio working on an album, which she describes as “worldly and international.”

I hope that the additional “i” also stands for taking some initiative towards going back to her FIRST sound because the albums following the first two were not it. I try to ride for Amerie…I really do. But I swear, her material. *sigh
