New Song: Ne-Yo – Closer

Published: Monday 10th Mar 2008 by Sam
Ne-Yo - Closer R&B star Ne-Yo is currently working on his third studio album. This new track ‘Closer’, which surfaced today, is said to be first single from the LP.
Upon listening to this, I was a little surprised. On the uptempo track, Ne-Yo fuses Euro-Dance/Pop with R&B, serving up a pretty solid song in the process. Considering the creative and sales slump he saw with his last album ‘Because of You’, I’m hoping this ‘different’ sound here is indicative of a new direction he’s venturing into musically.

 

Hit or Miss?

    This is a good look! I didn’t care for his last album except the first single. Let’s see if he comes as hard as the songs he’s been writing for Mary and Janet.

    I think some of his fans will be disappointed..and personally this is too dance/pop for me. I feel like the video should be him with a cutoff shirt, baby oil on his chest and some dancing with lights a la J-Lo’s Waiting For Tonight video. :-\

    hott. i don’t like ne-yo, but this track is solid. [= hope this track won’t be another ‘because of you’ while the rest of the album sucks. im hoping for a better album, than his second.

    I can see a remix to this song already. You can already dance to this, but it’ll be a mega dace track. It’s alright.

    I like the song, although it’s a bit Enrique! i could imagine him writing this song for him.
