Rick Ross has scored hits with crooners John Legend ("Magnificent") and R. Kelly ("Speedin' "), but his latest, "Super High," with Ne-Yo, has the potential to be his biggest success yet. The track is the pair's second collaboration following Deeper Than Rap's "Bossy Lady."
According to Ne-Yo, it was their working relationship that convinced the Boss to recruit his labelmate for "Super High," the lead single from his forthcoming Teflon Don album.
"It was a chemistry thing, so when he put this one together, he said I was one of the first people he called about it," Ne-Yo told MTV News from the "Super High" video set. "Ross is just a cool dude. I respect his lyrical ability. There's only a few in the game that really say something when they say something, and Ross is one of those few. So it's just an honor to be on the joint."
The song has been added radio-station playlists across the country, including New York's Hot 97 and Power 105.
Ne-Yo is currently working on the follow-up to his last album, Year of the Gentleman, which he hopes to release this September. The project is still untitled, but the songwriter explained that the collection will consist of songs inspired by a screenplay he's written.
The Grammy winner was coy with details but said the set will be one of the best R&B albums ever heard.
