Dr. Mickel's Amerie Favorites

Dr. Mickel's Amerie/Ameriie Favorites
*A Dr. Mickel's Golden Era Playlists Special Edition

Ameriie is hands down my favorite female R&B singer of all time, and in my top ten favorite vocalists (male/female, all genres), of all time. My first experience with Amerie was her "Talkin' to Me" video in 2002. That's really all it took...haha! The girl I was dating at the time had already bought the 'All I Have' album so I immediately went to go listen. I then went out and bought my own copy. For months I would drive to and from work with that CD on constant repeat. Not many artists can take me away from early morning sports radio I typically commute to. I absolutely love and celebrate Ameriie's entire catalogue, but 'All I Have' is, to this day, still my favorite Ameriie album.

Ameriie has released four studio albums, one studio EP, two best-of albums, a mixtape, and a handful of singles. I have everything in my personal collection with the exception of the Because I Love It volume 1 Mixtape. I've been trying to get my hands on a physical copy of that for years, to no avail...yet, I'm still hopeful. By my count there are a total of 109 Amerie/Ameriie tracks; 96 tracks of hers and 13 tracks by other artists featuring Ameriie. [side note: if any Ameriie fans reading this know of more than 109 tracks, please let me know as I'd love to update my list! Thanks.]

Of said 109 tracks, here are my favorite 21 songs and my 14 "runner-ups".
