NE-YO Remixes “Link Up” With Fabolous: A Fresh Take On A Classic Vibe

Iconic Duo Returns With A New Video And Remixed Beats

Today, NE-YO, a celebrated artist with three Grammy wins, revealed a remix of his track “Link Up,” featuring Fabolous. This new version is now accessible for streaming across various platforms through Motown Records/Compound Entertainment, which can be found HERE.

Accompanying the remix, NE-YO and Fabolous have released a new music video, directed by Azzie Scott, available for viewing HERE. The video, presented in monochrome, sees the pair infuse their distinctive style into a refreshed rendition of Michael Wycoff’s classic R&B tune from the ’80s, “Looking Up To You,” with production credits to Hitmaka, Cardiak, and Wu10.

This remix highlights Fabolous’s clever lyrical prowess alongside NE-YO’s silky vocal delivery, continuing their history of successful musical ventures. Their collaborative efforts trace back to hits like “She Got Her Own” with Jamie Foxx and “Make Me Better” featuring NE-YO, which climbed to #8 on the Billboard Hot 100.

The pair have worked together on tracks such as “Crazy Love” from NE-YO’s Libra album and “Should Be You” from his R.E.D. album. This remix follows the original release of “Link Up” in late September, coinciding with the wrap-up of NE-YO’s “Champagne and Roses Tour” across the nation, featuring Mario and Pleasure P.

NE-YO has graced various stages this year, including a marquee performance at The White House for the 4th of July festivities and a standout appearance at Michael Rubin’s exclusive Hamptons white party, a gathering of notable figures from various industries.

The single “Link Up” is NE-YO’s newest offering since his eighth studio album, “Self Explanatory,” which saw him work with artists like Yung Bleu, Jeremih, and Trippie Redd. His track with Jeremih, “U 2 Luv,” held the top spot on Billboard’s Adult R&B Airplay chart for three consecutive weeks.

NE-YO’s music has amassed over 23 billion streams globally throughout his illustrious career. With three Grammy awards and 14 nominations to his name, his debut single “So Sick” from 2005 soared to the top of the Billboard Hot 100 and achieved quadruple Platinum status. He has since added numerous hits to his repertoire, such as “Sexy Love,” “Closer,” “Because of You,” “Miss Independent,” and “Push Back” with Bebe Rexha and Stefflon Don.
