I think it’s fair to say that it’s been at least a few years since any of these 3 artists have been at their top of their game but when I saw the tracklisting for Ne-Yo’s forthcoming “R.E.D.” album, I had very high hopes for this song in particular and now we have it, it is pretty much everything I was hoping for!
Only a killer chorus away from greatness, it’s the first song I’ve heard Diddy kill since the early 2000s and they have captured the whole vibe I was hoping it would give off perfectly: Fabolous’ laidback flow always compliments Ne-Yo’s vocals so well and the beat, courtesy of Salaam Remi, is very chilled yet still sounds so addictive and classy at the same time and is the type of production that has always made Ne-Yo’s best songs. Press play on “Should Be You” below and “R.E.D.” drops November 6th.
