[lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Ne-Yo[/lastfm] and [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Fabolous[/lastfm] will be borrowing a page out of [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]R. Kelly [/lastfm]and [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Jay-Z’s [/lastfm]playbook by putting out a Best Of Both Worlds cd of their own.
Fans will remember Kels and Hov’s 2002 album and hope for even better results with Funeral Fab and Ne-yo.
One of the things that may have contributed to the original BOBW not living up to expectations, was the fact that Kelly & Hov didn’t record the album in the same studio. Much of it was done by tracks being sent back and forth between camps.
The two previously collaborated on Fab’s song “Make Me Better” and Ne-Yo’s “Crazy Love.”
Ne-Yo likes the chemistry between them, adding their voices mesh well.
“We have been talking about getting in, trying to do kind of a Best of Both Worlds-type vibe situation,” Ne-Yo told MTV. “It’s just something about his voice and my voice that makes sense together. We been kicking ideas around and I can’t say exactly when to look for it but definitely look for it. Keep your eyes peeled, we’ll be out there.”
