Amerie felt the need to switch things up a bit and change the spelling in her name to Ameriie, adding another “i”. She recently spoke with RapUp.com to discuss her reasoning behind the name change.
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!
The R&B singer also revealed that she’s “working on the follow-up to last year’s In Love & War called Cymatika Vol. 1 (note the new spelling), named after the study of visible sound and vibration.”
Hmm…which ever floats her boat. A girl’s gotta do what a girl’s gotta do!
Tidbit: Ameriie got engaged to her longtime manager Lenny Nicholson earlier this year. The couple plans to wed in 2011.
