“Don’t Make ‘Em Like You” F. Wiz Khalifa

    The irony in Ne-Yo calling his collaboration with Wiz Khalifa — his first proper connection with the Taylor Gang MC — “Don’t Make ‘Em Like You” is brilliantly ironic, because this is a formula as good as any to secure radio play, chart positioning and general gratitude from casual R&B and rap fans. Not just solid on paper, though, the trendy two combine pretty well over this catchy, clickety-clack jam, which is dedicated to all those loyal females out there (such gentlemen, eh?)

    “Don’t Make ‘Em Like You” will feature on Ne-Yo’s fifth studio album, R.E.D., due out Nov. 6.
