Background[edit]

In the summer of 2007, Timberlake and Denters began writing and producing songs for her debut album.[3]

In April 2009, Denters confirmed on Dutch radio station Radio 538 that her debut album, Outta Here, would be released on 22 May 2009, also confirming that the album is a mix of pop and R&B with both ballads, and uptempo tracks.

Speaking in October 2009, Esmée explained to noted UK R&B writer Pete Lewis of the award-winning Blues & Soul her reasons for naming her debut album after her debut single: "I called it 'Outta Here' because to me that one song in itself actually encapsulates what the album in its entirety is about. You know, it's a pop song, it has a bit of an R&B feel, it has some rock in it, a little bit of dance... So, because I thought that mixture of styles was just so representative of the record as a whole, I decided to name the album after it."[4]
