New Video: Ne-Yo – ‘Forever Now’

Published: Friday 30th Nov 2012 by Sam

Ne-Yo may be keeping the party going with new single ‘Forever Now’ (the follow-up to chart smash ‘Let Me Love You’), yet the singer-songwriter has approached its accompanying video from a much more premium perspective.

Embracing the cinematic, the moody clip fuses the star’s trademark performance art with a compelling storyline. Peep the clip, the latest to be lifted from his ‘R.E.D’ album, after the jump…

Solid.

Yes, the lighting was again too dark (see: ‘Let Me Love You’ video). And yes, there was a whole lot going on (arguably too much). However, we can’t but tip our hats to Mr Smith for once again striving to visually serve up something other than the norm. Indeed, this felt like a much tidier and less convoluted take on what he was trying to achieve with much of the visual output from 2010’s ‘Libra Scale’ LP.

Now, we just hope some of the album’s Urban offerings are also given the video treatment; as, contrary to the impression the present singles have given, ‘R.E.D’ is very much an R&B affair – one filled with cuts that could also fair well commercially (see: ‘Miss Right’).

    Another traitor dance/pop record for rhythmless white girls & gay boys who wish they were girls.
    …and the album is flopping.

    Looks like selling out wasn’t all it was cracked up to be.

    It’s alright, even though I love NeYo’s voice and he has killer moves its just another dance pop song. I hope he will release an R&B single because R.E.D. has really good R&B tracks like “Miss Right” or “Stress Reliever”.

    Doesn’t matter what you think of the song. The video is undeniably gold.

    Reminds me a lot of 2006’s Ne-Yo. Me likeyyy.

    If Chris Brown has ANY sense of business, he will beg (Yes, boy, you HAVE to beg sometimes) Ne-Yo to pen him a whole album.

    Ne-Yo is an amazing songwriter (FORBES be sleeping on him, he is loaded) but some of his songs need a showman with star quality to turn them into hits. And Chris despite his ooogly tattoos can be that guy.

    Ne-Yo can be Chris Brown’s Jermaine Dupri or Quincy Jones but we all know they have that black folks ego that will never let that happen. SAD.

Hard to believe it’s been nearly 18 years since Sammie broke onto the scene with his tune, ‘I Like It.’ Since then, the R&B singer has had a musical reincarnation or two, but the identity and label changes never got in the way of the Floridian crooner’s devotion to the genre.  Such is evidenced again… Read More
