Those who liked Jennifer Lopez’s Get Right but wished it had been performed by an actual singer will be stuck on 1 Thing, the Meters-sampled first single from Amerie’s second album. Both were produced by Rich Harrison (Usher, Beyonc&eacute), who takes pride in matching his protege’s sexed-up new look with the appropriate score: taut drums, milky keyboards, plump bass lines, 80s-style vocal lines and such. Unfortunately, this is a case of the single being so blazin’, it overshadows the mostly mid-tempo remainder of the record until the last track, when 1 Thing resurfaces at the end with a guest verse featuring Eve.
