New Music: Ne-Yo f/ Wiz Khalifa – ‘Don’t Make ‘Em Like You’

Ne-Yo and Wiz Khalifa

Ne-Yo and Wiz Khalifa raise a musical toast to the special ladies out there. The odd couple collaborates on “Don’t Make ‘Em Like You” from Ne-Yo’s fifth album R.E.D., available November 6.

“Here’s a toast to my ladies with class, I see ya babe,” sings Ne-Yo on the uplifting ode. Similar to his previous hit “Miss Independent,” the song is a shout-out to all of the independent, classy women. The Taylor Gang leader raps about his own leading lady, presumably his fiancée Amber Rose: “We be posing for the cameras/ We be reading all the comments.”

In an interview with Rap-Up TV last month, Ne-Yo broke down the meaning behind R.E.D., an acronym for Realizing Every Dream. “I called the album that because pretty much from age nine to now, every dream and every goal that I set for myself in regard to music has been realized through music,” he explained. “This album is a celebration of my first love, which is music.”

Collaborators include Stargate, No I.D., Sia (“Let Me Love You”), Da Internz, The Underdogs, and Diddy and Fabolous (“Should Be You”).

  11. Mr Nice Watch

    wiz is brain dead.


  12. Looney

    It looks like Ne-Yo wasn’t kidding when he said he’d be “blurring the lines” between R&B and pop. The radio will eat this up but I’m not feeling his sound.


  13. Nait Phoenix

    I’m getting “Champagne Life” meets “Miss Independent” with this track. It’s like In My Own Words 2.0, gotta love it.
