Ne-Yo releases new single "U 2 LUV" ft. Jeremih
Yesterday [May 29], global superstar NE-YO released his new single, “U 2 Luv” featuring Jeremih.
The upbeat, unabashedly romantic track is from NE-YO’s forthcoming album. The two acclaimed vocalists teamed up with producers Retro Future and NE-YO’s longtime collaborator, Curtis "Sauce" Wilson, to record the song, which smoothly interpolates elements of two classic 1980s hits – Mtume's “Juicy Fruit” and Zapp’s “Computer Love”.
To celebrate the single’s launch, NE-YO has teamed up with Postmates to support healthcare heroes caring for COVID-19 patients. Last night [May 29], hero nurses in the ICU at Emory Medical Center in Atlanta received Postmated meals from Subway during their breaks thanks to NE-YO, Postmates and Feed Hero Nurses, a volunteer-run organization in partnership with Random Acts that is dedicated to providing meals to nurses on the frontlines.
“U 2 Luv” is the follow-up to NE-YO’s “Pinky Ring” feat. O.T. Genasis. which was released in February 2020. Earlier this week, NE-YO returned as a judge for the fourth season of NBC’s World of Dance.
In his career to date, NE-YO has sold a cumulative 20+ million adjusted albums worldwide. The Motown Records/Compound Entertainment recording artist has won three GRAMMY® awards and been honored with a total of 14 nominations.
His first single, 2005’s “So Sick,” hit No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100, and was certified quadruple Platinum. Since then, he has racked up a collection of hit singles – including “Sexy Love,” “Closer,” “Because of You,” “Miss Independent” and “Push Back” featuring Bebe Rexha and Stefflon Don. Three of his albums have entered SoundScan’s Top Current Albums chart at No. 1.
He has proven to be as powerful with his pen as he is in the recording studio and on stage. The Las Vegas native quickly became known as a go-to hitmaker, penning bangers like Rihanna’s “Unfaithful,” “Russian Roulette,” and “Take a Bow,” along with Beyoncé’s 2006 breakup anthem “Irreplaceable” and songs for such artists as Jennifer Hudson, Usher, Carrie Underwood, Celine Dion, among others.
In addition to “World of Dance,” NE-YO’s film and television credits include "Save the Last Dance," "Battle: Los Angeles," "Stomp the Yard," George Lucas' "Red Tails," "Empire," "The Wiz Live!" and “Step Up: High Water.”
