Now maybe it’s just me, but with the sudden arrival of Frank Ocean‘s debut album and a new single from veteran crooner Ne-Yo the genre of R&B seems poised to have one of the best weeks in recent memory. Not to be overdone by boisterous newcomers Ne-Yo has released Let Me Love You, the second single from his upcoming album R.E.D. As crowded as the R&B/pop realm can be at times, the artist born Shaffer Chimere Smith has always managed to keep his head above water. And with songs that feature a tantalizing mix of silky vocals and club-ready production his longevity in the game should come as no surprise. Heavy on the keys, the production for Let Me Love You comes courtesy of Norwegian production duo (and frequent collaborators) Stargate. Basically, if you find yourself listening to Let Me Love You at your local club hot spit, then be prepared to have an Apple Martini (or equally Sex & The City-ish drink) spilled on your back by a pack of overly excited twenty-somethings. They’re going to absolutely love this one. Ne-Yo’s R.E.D. will be released via Compound Entertainment/Motown on September 18.
