Singer Se7en will sing duet with American singer Amerie for her new album “Because I Love It,” which will be released next March. He will sing “Take Control” with her and may appear in a music video as well. The two began working together from early this year.
YG Entertainment, Seven’s agency, said Friday that the half-Korean singer had wanted to find a Korean singer as her duet partner and suggested that Se7en sing a duet with her upon seeing him perform in Asia. “She is also considering shooting a music video with him after watching his music videos,” it added.
Born to a Korean mother and African-American father, Amerie is an R&B singer. She lived in many nations where her farther was stationed as a soldier when she grew up, and studied English literature at Georgetown University in the U.S. Since she made her debut in 2002 with the album “All I Have,” she has become quite successful, with every one of her albums making the billboard top 10.
After her albums “Touch” and “1 Thing” became big hits, she was nominated for the 48th Grammy Awards in two categories--“Best Female Pop Vocal Performance” and “ R&B Album of the Year.”
She attracted attention from Koreans with a tattoo of her name spelled in Korean between on the small of her back.
Se7en, who himself has plans to make a debut in the U.S. next spring, said that he is very pleased to be able to work with her before his own debut. “I was delighted to hear that she spoke highly of my singing ability. I will do my best in singing a duet with her,” he said.
