Or so read the lyrics of Fab & Ne-Yo’s 2007 smash hit “Make Me Better”… of course, the song was referring to their respective lady friends, but it’s also applicable to this post.
In an interview with XXL, Fabolous revealed that he and Ne-Yo would be working on a collaborative album this year, something that has been in the works for a long time.
“I think this year too I might be doing this project with Ne-Yo finally. We’ve been in talks for a minute. It’s really sounding like it’s gonna get done. Ne-Yo is really hyped about it. I just fell back on it, but now I see the wheels are turning a little bit. I think we need that for the game. Some of the allure from the game is gone. You see people doing less numbers, so now let’s do some vanity projects where people are collaborating together.”
Honestly I think this will be a good look for both of them. It also seems like 2011 is the year of collaborative efforts…which I think, in most cases, could be a remedy to the sagging industry sales. With that being said…I hope the music lives up to it’s hype.
