Ne-Yo (echte naam Shaffer Chimere Smith) is een Amerikaanse R&B zanger en songwriter. Zijn doorbraak kwam in 2004, toen het door hem geschreven nummer Let me love you, gezongen door Mario, wereldwijd een grote hit werd. In 2006 kwam zijn debuutalbum In my own words uit.



Zijn albums volgen elkaar erg snel op: in 2007 kwam zijn tweede album Because of you en in 2008 Year of the gentleman.
Ook als songwriter is hij erg druk bezig, hij schreef hits voor onder meer Mario, Chris Brown, Snoop Dogg, Rihanna, Beyoncé, Jay-Z, Usher, Janet Jackson, Anastacia en Ciara.

In 2011 scoort hij, samen met Pitbull, Nayer en Afrojack zijn eerste nummer 1-hit met Give Me Everything. Het nummer zou zijn grootste hit worden. Turn Around, zijn samenwerking met Connor Maynard, is in 2012 zijn laatste en 13e Top 40-hit.

In 2014 werkt hij opnieuw samen met Pitbull op Times Of Our Lives, dat in februari 2015 in de Top 40 komt. Ook verschijnt dan zijn zesde studioalbum, Non Fiction, waarvan de single Coming With You als voorloper verschijnt.




Songtekst

Closer, closer
Closer, closer

Turn the lights off in this place
And she shines just like a star
And I swear I know her face
I just don't know who you are

Turn the music up in here
I still hear her loud and clear
Like she's right there in my ear
Telling me that she wants to

Own me
To control me
Come closer
Come closer

And I just can't pull myself away
Under a spell I can't break
I just can't stop, I just can't stop
I just can't stop, I just can't stop

And I just can't bring myself away
But I don't want to escape
I just can't stop, I just can't stop
I just can't stop, I just can't stop
I just can't stop

I can feel her on my skin
I can taste her on my tongue
she's the sweetest taste I've seen
The more I get, the more I want

She wants to own me
Come closer
She says, "Come closer"
Hey!

And I just can't pull myself away
Under a spell I can't break
I just can't stop, I just can't stop
I just can't stop, I just can't stop

And I just can't bring myself away
But I don't want to escape
I just can't stop, I just can't stop
I just can't stop, I just can't stop
I just can't stop

Come closer, come closer
Come closer, come closer
Come closer, come closer
Come closer

I just can't stop, no
Said I just can't stop, no
Said I just can't stop, no
Said I just can't stop, no

And I just can't pull myself away
Under a spell I can't break
I just can't stop, I just can't stop
I just can't stop, I just can't stop

And I just can't bring myself away
But I don't want to escape
I just can't stop, I just can't stop
I just can't stop, I just can't stop
I just can't stop

And I just can't pull myself away
Under a spell I can't break
I just can't stop, I just can't stop
I just can't stop, I just can't stop
I just can't stop

Come closer
