Ne-Yo’s “Closer,” Now With Video!

Apr 28th, 2008 // 2 Comments

This is the third time in about a week we’ve posted a link to Ne-Yo’s “Closer,” but a) now there’s a video and b) it’s a damn good song. Video’s addictive, too. Between this and Gnarls Barkley’s “Run” I think everyone should rock zebra stripes. Ne-Yo even gets to look into the camera a bit (without sunglasses!), even though Scott Summers here risks burning a hole through the screen with those eyebrows. Dude should have to put a dollar in a jar every time he touches the brim of his hat. [YouTube]

    Okay now THAT is a modern-sounding song.

    @Matt Cibula: Whole-heartedly agreed. I cringed as I clicked play, recoiling for what I thought was another cookie cutter R&B crap song churned out by another cookie cutter R&B “artist” but what I got was something actually pretty original. House DJs have been doubling up the beats for years on soul tunes, and it’s a formula that’s worked really, really well. I’m glad to see an out-of-the-box treatment here.
