Best of 2010 Singles: #18 Amerie f/Fabolous, "More Than Love"
Amerie, apparently, is destined to be the greatest R&B singer since 2000 who you've never heard of. She consistently makes good-to-great R&B records that seem to get mostly-ignored, even though they're totally commercially viable - and quality. Case in point, this superb collabo with Fabo (sorry), as always better on other people's records than his own (he has one of the lyrics of the year in "And trust me, I don't even trust me"), while Amerie sings her butt off, showcasing her ridiculously strong, tuneful voice. At the very least she should've had the level of success of, say, Ashanti, though really she deserves even better. Solange would kill for a cut like this.
