Ne-Yo is moody in his new jam “Forever Now.”
Ne-Yo‘s upcoming fifth album, R.E.D., may have the same name as Taylor Swift’s new disc (and P.S. Ne-Yo is dropping Nov. 6!), but let us assure you: They sound absolutely nothing alike. We’ve already heard Ne-Yo’s Wiz Khalifa-assisted jam “Don’t Make Em Like You,” as well as his bedtime-themed “Lazy Love,” and now in his new track, “Forever Now,” Ne-Yo’s begging his chick not to leave him for another dude.

Though “Forever Now” is an uptempo club banger laden with synths, booming drums, and sparkling pop production, that doesn’t mean Ne-Yo isn’t singing about something totally sad! As opposed to watching him fend off women left and right, in “Forever Now,” Ne-Yo begs his woman not to leave him for another dude: “What am I gonna do with forever now?/ I’ll live out my life forever following you.” Ne-Yo! Sweetie, we totally get that you’re sad an all, and OK, we’ll give you approximately one week to wallow. But you’re Ne-Yo. You and I both know you can totally bag someone way hotter than that other chick who left you. Chin up, bb.
