This is the discography of Amerie, an American R&B singer signed to Columbia Records/Sony Urban Music. Her first album, All I Have (2002), was certified Gold in America, and produced the top forty song "Why Don't We Fall in Love". Amerie's 2005 single "1 Thing"—from her second album, Touch—became her biggest hit in the U.S. and elsewhere, although U.S. sales of Touch did not match those of her debut. Her third album, Because I Love It (2007), was preceded by the single "Take Control" and the mixtape Because I Love It Vol. 1, and it remains unreleased in North America. Amerie's recordings outside her solo material include featured credits on singles by LL Cool J, DJ Kayslay, Ricky Martin and Chingy.

In Love & War The album debuted at number 46 on the U.S. Billboard 200 chart, selling 12,500 copies in its first week. Three singles were released in promotion of the album, including "Why R U" on June 15, 2009,[1] "Heard 'Em All" on September 15, 2009,[2] and "Pretty Brown" on October 20, 2009.[3][4] Def Jam released a six-track album sampler containing snippets of "Higher", "Tell Me You Love Me", "Pretty Brown", and "Red Eye", as well full versions of "Heard 'Em All" and "Why R U", which had been remastered.[5] Amerie performed "Heard 'Em All" and "Higher" in November 2009 on Jimmy Kimmel Live!.[6] A music video for "More Than Love" featuring Fabolous, directed by Taj was released in January 2010.[7]
