Prior to releasing his latest album R.E.D., Ne-Yo had only been a feature on other artist’s pop, club heavy joints. Most notably Pitbull’s “Give Me Everything”. Now it is Ne-Yo’s turn to try out the genre as the lead act and he has already had success with “Let Me Love You (Until You Learn to Love Yourself)”. This time around, Ne-Yo is on Musical Breakdown with “Burning Up”.
Sensual and pulse-pounding, “Burning Up” is perfect club track for Ne-Yo. His almost whispering verses are a tremendous crescendo to the chorus which only provides a suitable climax. Ne-Yo seems to have adapted well to the times.
Watch the official video for “Burning Up” below.
