Ne-Yo - One Life

Album:
Libra Scale

Although Beautiful Monster was a number-one hit on the other side of the Atlantic (that’s the UK for the geographically challenged), Ne-Yo’s last two singles, the aforementioned Monster and Champagne Life, have for the most part failed to make an impact on the charts stateside. Undaunted, Mr. Yo is back at it again with his new single One Life, a lush, inspirational record I can already hear playing at proms across the country. For production duties the constantly-hatted crooner reaches out to r&b stalwarts Stargate, who craft a beat that won’t draw attention, and that’s just what they intended. Instead, it’s supposed to be Ne-Yo’s vocals that are firmly in the spotlight, and he delivers with an expertly crafted vocal performance that doesn’t have the same catchy factor as previous efforts, but has to be respected. Will One Life finally be the track that puts Ne-Yo back on top in the U.S.? That, DJBooth nation, is up to you. If not, don’t be surprised if his upcoming album Libra Scale gets pushed back from its current October 5, release date.
