Ne-Yo Releases Fourth Single, "Who's Taking You Home" + Plans On Releasing Fifth Single Soon:
Yesterday, Ne-Yo surprised fans with his official fourth single from the album, "Who's Taking You Home."
I really had thoughts on if I was gonna give this track a chance, since Ne-Yo has been confusing his fans a lot lately. Now, as much as I love Ne-Yo, it seems like he just doesn't know where he wants to go as an artist. One minute he's working on a pop track, and the next minute, he's doing R&B. While listening to this new single, I couldn't help, but read comments, from fans complaining about the track, with comments like, "Does anybody miss his old music? The music that told a story that told a story that you could relate to and hit you in the feels. sigh Maybe it's just me."
Well, in the David Guetta-produced track, Ne-Yo tries to convice a girl to come home with him, to spend the night. I think you know the rest...
The only think that grabs my attention in the track, is the production, so I can't say it's a song that I'll like too much, but based on the previous singles released from this album, I think this will probably be one of the best tracks on the album. I'm only guessing this, because Ne-Yo has a couple of weeks until the release of his new album, "Non-Fiction," and he hasn't done much promotion yet. The vocal performance to the track is basic. It's nothing too appealing, and I wish he would've went a different direction with this track overall anyway. It just doesn't fit well, with this current time of music. I think it would've been best if he released this track around the Fourth Of July. It's more of a party single.
Not saying, it would've did any better comercially, but that's just based on the production and flow of the track. I gotta admit, I'm trying to respect this direction Ne-Yo is going with his new material, but like others, I just miss his classics. I just wish he could possibly experiment with R&B once again. I'm not feeling this new material, but you guys check it out for yourself below! Non-fiction comes out on January 27. By the way, Ne-Yo confirmed that his sixth single will be, "Coming With You," which we'll be released on the 6th of February.
