As a child, I would run around the house with a tape deck and spontaneously break out into a dance session doing my best Michael Jackson impressions (come on, I know I wasn’t the only one). I could never resist the urge, especially when a song like Remember the Time came on. Now in my 20s, what happens when I listen to a song and get that exact feeling? Honestly? I still break out dancing, and that exactly what I did when I first listened to Ne-Yo’s new ode to the glamorous life, Champagne Life. Teaming back up with producer D. DoRohn Gough, Champagne Life has a mellow, free-flowing beat with hard-hitting drums and spacey strings sure to give anyone a feeling of euphoria. For his part, Ne-Yo hits us with soothing vocals at times reminiscent of a young Michael; displaying his range as he hits high notes and brings us back down like a roller coaster at Six Flags. So, now it’s up to you DJBooth. Does Champagne Life have you doing the Moonwalk? Ne-Yo’s upcoming album, Libra Scale, is set to drop in September.
