In spite of the success of his most recent single Closer, Ne-Yo decided to push back his junior album, Year of the Gentleman, because he needed more time to perfect it. That time was obviously put to good use, judging by the album’s second single, Miss Independent, an ode to all the ladies who handle all their business and don’t need anybody else. Once again, production team Stargate provides an upbeat tone, making Miss Independent appealing to a brand new audience, and allowing for Ne-Yo to continue his string of successful hits. More winning combinations should be expected once Year of the Gentleman is finally released September 16.
Note: The streaming of “Miss Independent” has temporarily been suspended.
