Ne-Yo “She Knows”
Lord have mercy.
I’ve always been a Ne-Yo fan. Although quite the corny cornball often, the man can write, produce, and sign some quality music. His track record is undeniable. The man makes hits. And the man makes enjoyable music. With his last album, R.E.D., being a EDM record for the most part, supposedly, possibly maybe, his forthcoming album, Non Fiction, will be a return the his R&B roots.
If those R&B roots means more videos like “She Knows,” than I’m extremely excited about this direction. Look at this video. Stripper poles everywhere. And strippers who know how to work said stripper poles. Ne-Yo is a fucking genius. Enough of this Bally’s/Equinox strip pole workout bullshit. We need women who feed their bastard children through the strength, endurance, and flexibility they display from 11pm – 4am nightly on cylindrical metal… while wearing clear pumps. The women in “She Knows” may be more talented than Ne-Yo. I mean, one stripper surfboarding another stripper while twerkin’. Lord have mercy.
Did I mention that Juicy J is on this record? If Juicy J is on a record, it’s 1.) trippy, and 2.) strippers and strip poles are involved.
Let’s congratulate Ne-Yo for bringing R&B back to its essence. Ratchet and Booty.
