His first original single since dropping a special remix for King Kung Fu Kenny’s "Humble" last week, Ne-Yo has returned with "Earn Ur Love." The West Coast vet has all his usual trappings in tow: glittering R&B production, silky smooth delivery and an earnest message for female listeners. He's ready to, as the title describes, get love based on merit and not the size of his wallet. Ne-Yo's latest drop should excite fans wanting more content from the artist, whose last album Non-Fiction hit stores two years ago. This track should properly whet the appetites of anyone who's looking for a return to the fore from the much-admired crooner.
Baby I'm a man with some
Paper not a problem, I can buy things
Most people cannot dream
But I don't believe in shopping for love.
