A remix of Ne-Yo’s new single, “Link Up,” featuring longtime collaborator Fabolous, injects new energy into the track. As Fab delivers his smooth-talking lyrics between Ne-Yo’s signature vocals and catchy songwriting, the former label mates continue the pick-and-roll winning combination.
“Link Up” marks Ne-Yo and Fabolous’ fourth collaboration since the early 2000s. The two’s hit-making collaborations originally began in 2007’s “Make Me Better,” off Fabolous’s fourth album, From Nothin to Somethin. With collaborations with Diddy, Jacquees, and Maino, Fabolous had a very busy 2023.
Ne-Yo is fresh off his highly successful Champagne & Roses tour as “Link Up” builds anticipation for a forthcoming album, the follow-up to 2022’s Self-Explanatory (Motown). Outside of his Compound record label, Ne-Yo is an independent artist.
