Charly Black and Ne-Yo combine dance-hall, reggae, and R&B vibes for “Over Again,” a sultry new single. The track has the duo going back and forth about falling in love with a woman. Despite the challenges a relationship can bring, they are falling in love with their respective woman to the point that they think about their partner all the time.
The hook has Ne-Yo reiterating the point that everything he thinks or feels about his lady, it’s always in his mind hence him stating, “Over and over and over again!” Sophisticated but light-hearted, Black and Ne-Yo present listeners a perfect balance of vibrant feelings of joy but with a more profound idea of discussing multiple ideologies of love. Ne-Yo’s smooth swan song style of singing evens out Charly’s catchy and seductive reggae tone.

Charly intends to use the single as one of his main tracks for his upcoming untitled album, which currently has no release date. An official is in the works for the video, which more details will be announced soon.
The Daily Take
Combing Ne-Yo’s croonish and classic pop R&B sound with Charly Black’s strong dance-hall vocals, “Over Again” is a throwback to songs that captivated my ears in the 200os such as “Tempted To Touch,” “No Letting Go,” and “Pon De Replay.” With every listen I pictured myself waking up in 2005, eating my cereal, going to school, and walking into my middle school crush.
The duo deliberate on various topics of love but makes it easy on the ears with embellished lyrics and superb song writing. Overall, it’s a must listen. Take a listen below.
