While he’s continued to be a regular presence on the guest verse tip, it’s actually been a minute since we’ve heard a solo track from Ne-Yo. (No, I don’t know what happened to The Way You Move either.) But if it takes a partnership with Malibu Red to get some new headlining music from the always smooth crooner, then I’d like to raise a glass and toast to new video Burnin Up. Produced by Stargate, Burnin is an eminently danceable, up tempo jam filled with hand claps and bouncing synths – so it only makes sense that the video features no shortage of beautiful females moving to the music. Speaking of which, Ne-Yo directs his lyrical and vocal prowess towards one lucky lady in particular, turning a chance backstage encounter into the beginnings of a heated affair. Man, the life of a R&B superstar is rough. While there’s still no word on a new album from Ne-Yo, fans can simply “Like” Malibu Red’s Facebook page to cop this en fuego track.
