Music Review: Neyo “Link Up”

This suave R&B artist made it clear from the beginning that his talents weren't confined to just singing. Neyo is an adept songwriter and producer, crafting memorable hits for luminaries like Enrique Iglesias, Beyoncé, and Celine Dion. Across his seven albums he has seamlessly, blended hip-hop rhythms with pop, showcasing his versatile artistry.

The Grammy-winning artist just released a track titled "link up." The accompanying video showcases his acting prowess as he pursues a girl he spotted on the beach, aiming to "link up" with her. The track's production credits go to Hitmaka, the mastermind behind numerous chart-toppers for artists like Nicki Minaj, TY Dolla $ign, Summer Walker, Gucci Mane, Lil Wayne, and many more.

The recent track "Link Up" by the Grammy-winning artist seems rather average, especially when measured against the artist's previous accomplishments. The song appears to have sampled "Hey Mr DJ", which isn't surprising given the current trend of using samples in modern music. It feels as though the song was released to simply keep the artist's name in circulation, especially in a time when many artists are frequently dropping new music. Will you be playing Neyo’s latest song on the aux?
