There's this 1 book that's got her trippin'...

Being an excitable 90's kid, we had a little freak out in the office today when we found out that one of our favourite old R&B; singers had ventured into our YouTube realm. No, it's not Mary J Blige, even though we're working on that pretty much everyday - it's Ameriie!

Whilst her last album "In Love & War" dropped nearly seven years ago, our go-to club banger anthem has been and always will be "1 Thing", so when we noticed that Ameriie had started a YouTube channel dedicated to reviewing books, style and beauty, we needed to see what one thing she was recommending in 2016. Turns out, she's damn good at running a YouTube channel, you should check out her channel trailer below.

The channel, "Books, Beauty, Ameriie" was launched in November 2015 and features videos ranging from the feminine and studious side of her personality. Back in 2015, Ameriie did an interview with Voice Online in which she revealed her favourite books of all time; "The Harry Potter series by J.K Rowling; The Complete Brothers Grimm Fairy Tales by The Brothers Grimm; Station Eleven by Emily St. John Mandel; The First Fifteen Lives of Harry August by Claire North; Invisible Man by Ralph Ellision; and Maus 1 and 2 by Art Spiegelman". Were any of your favourites mentioned?

We're 100% behind seeing more mainstream celebrities find their calling and passion waiting for them on YouTube, especially with big names like Ameriie finally using her Bachelor's degree in English from Georgetown University to good use. Are there anymore celebrities you want to see start their own book club? Let us know in the comments below, and until then, please enjoy this banging flashback to Ameriie's best tune. You're welcome!
