Best of 2010 Singles: #34 Ne-Yo, "Champagne Life"
This is precisely the kind of record a 22-year-old Michael Jackson would be making today. Especially in its chorus, this is a grand Rod Temperton rip, which of course also means it's a lush, smoooooove R&B cut. And uptempo! Ne-Yo doesn't always nail it, but when he does, he's very good indeed.
