"Talkin' to Me" is a song by American R&B singer Amerie from her debut album, All I Have (2002). Written and produced by Rich Harrison, it was released in late 2002 as the album's second and final single solely in the United States, thus not being able to make the charts elsewhere. A remix of "Talkin' to Me" by the production duo Trackmasters featuring rapper Foxy Brown exists.[1] The song first obtained airplay during the week of October 8, 2002.

Music video[edit]

The video was directed by Dave Meyers and first aired in October 2002.

Single release[edit]

A promotional single of the song was to be released as a double A-side with "I'm Coming Out", but it never came to surface as the commercial release came for "I'm Coming Out". Instead, "Talkin' to Me" was backed with the All I Have track "I Just Died".

Chart performance[edit]

"Talkin' to Me" debuted at number twenty-two on the Billboard Bubbling Under Hot 100 Singles in early November 2002, entering the main chart at number seventy five weeks later and peaking at fifty-one in its fourth week. It also peaked at number eighteen on the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs in early October 2002, having previously debuted at number twenty-three on the Bubbling Under R&B/Hip-Hop Singles.
