Noughties #64: Amerie "Touch" (Sony, 2005)

Let's get one thing straight - "1 Thing" is quite probably the best pop single of the decade. Right? OK, we can continue. Producer Songwriter Rich Harrison was on a roll with this record. Having already created massive hits for Beyonce, including "Crazy in Love", and Jennifer Lopez, it was time for one if his original muses, Amerie, to get the same treatment. This album is ridiculously consistent, and the structures and samples just a little bit more left-field than most pop R&B albums of the era.

Highlights: - 1 thing - not the only one - talkin' about
