Ne-Yo ft. Fabolous: I have been jamming to two new songs ALL day, and this is one of them. This is that hotness! I’m always interested as to why artists release songs after their album debuts. I am referring to Year of the Gentleman and maybe this did not make the cut, or maybe Ne-Yo and Fabolous recently recorded the track. Whichever the reason, the track definitely puts Fabolous back on the radar which is good since he has a new album releasing in February 2009. Loso’s Way, based on Carlito’s Way, is Fabolous’ fifth studio album and will follow the format of Jay Z’s American Gangster. There are supposed to be a couple top notch featured guests on the album like Kanye and Ne-Yo….that’s about it. Everybody else I have never heard of and need to look up i.e. Red Café, Asia Cruise, Freck Billionare, and Paul Cain.

by Ne-Yo: As predicted, I’ve been listening to this album non stop. Although Ne-Yo comes through on the slow jamz, mostly relationship inspired, I can admit I expected more. From his interview on the radio a few weeks ago when he stated his album would have a mix of different genres, I thought these would be some off the wall sounds. NOT! Year of the Gentleman is filled with predictable Ne-Yo tracks. Don’t get me wrong – this album is good! My only requests are 1. the track She Got Her Own (Miss Independent Remix) I posted a few days ago be on the original album and not a UK iTunes pre-order and 2. the album be longer. Twelve tracks is whack! Especially when I heard 5 before I received the album. Other than that, the tracks are catchy, smooth ballads that will be played and repeated by many. My fave tracks would be So You Can Cry and Part of the List.
