U 2 Luv
by Ne-Yo (featuring Jeremih)

Album: Yet to be titled (2020)

Songfacts®:

  • Here, Ne-Yo joins forces with fellow R&B star Jeremih to profess their love for their romantic partners.

    That's why I only want you to love
    I don't want nobody else
    I only want you to love


    Jeremih and Ne-Yo both only want one special girl in their life and no other can take her place.
  • Ne-Yo and Jeremih wrote the song with:

    California songwriter and producer Leon "Roccstar" Youngblood Jr., who has written and produced songs for Chris Brown ("Fine China") and Jennifer Lopez ("A.K.A.").

    Teddy Pena, whose other writing credits include Pentatonix' "Can't Sleep Love" and Jeremih's "Pass Dat."
  • Frequent Jeremih collaborator Retro Future's groovy production samples two classic '80s R&B numbers: Zapp's "Computer Love" and Mtume's "Juicy Fruit."
  • The song's remix features verses by rappers Queen Naija and Lil Durk. While Naija's contribution continues the track's romantic theme, Durk's is more R-rated and cynical.
  • Chad Tennies and Caleb Seales (J. Cole, Earthgang) directed the video, which co-stars Ne-Yo and his leading lady in real life, Crystal Smith. The couple take to the floor of a closed roller skating rink, which is run by comedian Jess Hilarious. Meanwhile, Jeremih can be seen spending a cozy night at his lavish residence with his romantic interest.
