Ne-Yo and Johnny Rzeznik Encourage You to Move “Forward” with Barack Obama
Posted by Videoson 10/30/2012 at 12:45 PM
He’s not dropping freestyles at Romney rallies or snacking with Michelle Obama in a ballot dress, but Ne-Yo is getting political during the campaign’s final days. The singer, whose new album, R.E.D.—no, the other Red—comes out next month, is lending a hand to the Obama-Biden reelection effort in the form of a new song hoping to inspire and potentially sway those who are still undecided.
Co-written by Johnny Rzeznik of the Goo Goo Dolls and Herbie Hancock, “Forward” is executive produced by will.i.am, who previously corralled a ton of celebrities to star in the much more captivating, “Yes We Can,” back in 2008. We understand the connection between aiming for four more years in office and moving forward as a nation, but putting four fingers in the air might be overkill? Sigh. Just get Beyoncé to tell everyone who to vote for. It’s much more effective.
