Ameriie's Comeback Single 'What I Want' is What You Want, Trust

It's chock-full of that funky stuff.

It's been 5 years since we last heard from Ameriie. In 2009, she released her newest album Love & War and while it was popular with critics, it didn't quite have the same momentum as her 2005 smash hit, "1 Thing." The good news: She's back with a sure-to-please single, and it's been on repeat ever since we first pressed play.

Much like "1 Thing," the funky track boasts a killer sample — the hook of Sugarhill Gang's unanimously infectious classic "Apache" — and leaves us lyrically lovestruck and strapping on our dancing shoes.

Listen, below, but get ready to cool your heels for Ameriie's next record, Cymatika Vol. 1, as it has no official release date:
