Big name features from Schoolboy Q, T.I., Pitbull, Jeezy, Juicy J, and more. You can now listen to all 21 (!) tracks off Non-Fiction, officially in stores next Tuesday.
Late last night was a hotbed of new singles so I’m here to round it up new music update style. Ironic since many of these artists were bigger names in ’07/’08 when this was the format of posts on the rookie version of gowherehiphop.com.
Alas, here’s the official version of Gwen Stefani & Pharrell’s “Shine” off the Paddington soundtrack (previously leaked on NYE), another album preview from Ne-Yo, Ciara’s return single, and a new video from T-Pain (for his upcoming mixtape with DJ Drama.)
Ne-Yo’s latest off the upcoming album, Non-Fiction, is thankfully on the R&B tip as “Make It Easy” finds him asking if that special someone is basically going to be there amidst a bunch of situations. I find the relatablity factor pretty high and Ne-Yo delivers a solid and unique vocal performance as well. Worth a shot for your R&B rotation. Ladies, will you have our back??
ICYMI: Ne-Yo “Coming With You” x “Religious”
Ne-Yo’s new album, Non-Fiction, is on tap for January 27th and today, the album art, tracklist, and new song is released all in one. “Coming With You” is below and it’s a pretty solid record that has that modern mix of pop and contemporary R&B. It doesn’t go the 100% dance route, which I’m happy to hear from Ne-Yo as a fan of his first 3 albums.
Below that is a look at the tracklist for Non-Fiction, which will have a staggering 21 tracks. I don’t speak fiction. The lengthy album has some rap features like Juicy J and Jeezy on the first couple singles and T.I. and Schoolboy Q on songs to still be heard. Intrigued at the latter two for sure.
