Wiz Khalifa proved to be a lucky charm for Maroon 5, as their pair-up, “Payphone,” shot to #2 on the Billboard Hot 100 over the summer. So Ne-Yo is hoping a little of that same magic will rub off on his own tune with the Pittsburgh MC, “Don’t Make Em Like You.” The Harmony Samuels-produced track will appear on Ne-Yo’s delayed R.E.D. LP (now due out on October 31). Overall, it’s a catchy R&B-pop number with a clap-clap mid-tempo beat that doesn’t sound unfamiliar when it comes to Ne-Yo’s output. If it ain’t broke, etc. etc.
“I’m gonna raise a glass, here’s a toast to the ladies with class,” the 32-year-old croons. Later Wiz hops on the track and raps, “We’ll be dancin’ with the stars and throwin’ peace signs at the comets.” Hear them praise this one-of-a-kind woman below.
