By the time I can get to a Ne-Yo album review, half of the LP will have already been reviewed. The question of the song is: Would you still kiss Ne-Yo if his breath stank? Well, in “Make It Easy”, Ne-Yo is just as curious as I am.
The song is a slow(ish) ballad and features background harmonies through most of the song. This track is something that could have easily been placed in 3 Simple Rules (hey, read my review of that here). The gist of the song is basically whether or not you would love Ne-Yo if he were not, say, the rich talented singer that he is.
This is another song that manages to be RnB while still have a modern feel to it. Regardless, something about it feels a bit uninteresting. I do, however, enjoy the general tone and RnB/Pop sound that Ne-Yo is going for in his upcoming album Non-Fiction. You can find that album coming out on January 27th, and it will feature all of the usual Hip-Hop culprits, including ScHoolboy Q, T.I., Jeezy, Juicy J, and Pitbull.
So overall, I would rate this song at:
“Make It Easy” was just released a few days ago. You can hear the song below:
