Fabolous went all out while celebrating his 36th birthday with a “Great Gatsby”-themed party at Jazz Room at The General in New York last night.

“Celebrating Life with my King! Happy Birthday,” tweeted Emily.

Vintage jazz band Honey & Vinyl entertained the crowd, who toasted the birthday boy and serenaded him with “Happy Birthday.” Meek Mill got on the mic and performed “Levels,” while Ne-Yo and Fab teamed up for “Make You Better.”

New Music: Celine Dion f/ Ne-Yo – ‘Incredible’

Ne-Yo and Celine Dion

Ne-Yo joins forces with one of pop music’s biggest voices for an “Incredible” collaboration. The R&B crooner duets with Celine Dion on the soaring anthem, which will appear on the Canadian diva’s first English-language album in six years, Loved Me Back to Life, due November 5.

Ne-Yo describes the power ballad as a “theme song for that moment when you do something that defines who you are or defines a moment in time.”

“It’s an honor and a pleasure to sing with Celine Dion, but it is not an easy thing,” said Ne-Yo, who previously worked with her on 2007′s “I Got Nothin’ Left.” “It’s the most irrelevant that I’ve ever felt. Because the size of Celine Dion’s voice, you don’t need me there.”

Listen to them knock it out of the park.

Ne-Yo and Celine Dion

Ne-Yo has worked with pop’s biggest divas including Mariah Carey, Beyoncé, and Rihanna. Now he teams up with Celine Dion on their duet “Incredible” for the Canadian singer’s upcoming album Loved Me Back to Life, due November 5.

The two hit the Palms studio in Las Vegas to record (Celine’s son René-Charles is also a big Ne-Yo fan).

Celine belts out the Ne-Yo-penned lyrics on the empowering record, described as a “theme song for that moment when you do something that defines who you are or defines a moment in time.”

“It’s an honor and a pleasure to sing with Celine Dion, but it is not an easy thing,” said Ne-Yo, who previously worked with her on 2007′s “I Got Nothin’ Left.” “It’s the most irrelevant that I’ve ever felt. Because the size of Celine Dion’s voice, you don’t need me there.”

Celine returned the compliment. “I love the song. I admire you and I’m privileged to have this song,” she told Ne-Yo.
