Check it: [audio removed by request] Me likey. And Ne-Yo, who wrote "Take A Bow" for Rihanna, has done his own version of "Take A Bow". Check it below: [audio:neyobow.mp3] Nice.

I'm not gonna say he's

I'm not gonna say he's necessarily gay, but Ne-Yo identifies a lil too well with the female experience. This and that "Irreplaceable" song for Beyonce. I truly love both songs, I just rather here WOMEN on them. I don't know its just a lil too feminine for me, but hey...who am I to judge. 2 thumbs down for mrs. whitney, I'm sorry. that's just how i feel. Not feelin it. I'm also not sure why Akon exists, but again...Who am I

Neyo’s version is much hotter

Neyo’s version is much hotter than Rihanna’s. Neyo is so talented. Without great writers (like Neyo) some of these non-talented artists (like Rihanna) would have a less fortunate career. Thanks to Neyo for building so many singer’s careers.

Go to . He did an amazing verion of "take a bow". Ne-yo's is garbage compared to TC's version. He is the Tyler Perry star. Check it out.

I DONT REMEBER THE POSTER but

I DONT REMEBER THE POSTER but someone said something about whitneys voice and her age, yes you do lose range somwhat due to age, but her voice loss is due to drugs. man, drugs will really scar you.

i think the song will be a

i think the song will be a hit just becuase her comback has been highly anicipated. and akon is on it. but if it was someone else, itd flop. I HOPE THE REST OF THIS CD IS BETTER THAN THIS IM LETTING IT PLAY AND I REALLY HATE IT.

I hate Neyo. He's been whining lately about how he isn't on Vibe mag, etc. I mean, for one, they couldn't shoot a picture of you w/o your hat & 2, you don't ask you get ASKED.

Ne-Yo sounds much better than Ri-Ri. She should just stick to modeling. I love CLASSIC Whitney better, yet she sounds great. God is sooooo good and merciful.

I have been a Whitney fan

I have been a Whitney fan since the beginning (yes, I'm pretty daggone old) and I'm sorry, her voice sounds horrible. I do NOT like this track. Her voice is forever ruined unless they continue to make miracles in the studio. The best "come back" album she had was when she was working with Missy....I think it's time for her to hang it up.

I'm loving Whitney and Akon

I'm loving Whitney and Akon on this track! I normally can't stand Akon but this is the first song I've heard him sing that makes him sound like a MAN singing to a WOMAN. Whitney's voice sounds rested and refreshed! I can't wait for her CD to drop. I sure hope Bobby don't get no ideas that she is singing this to him!

@me no likey damn i know

@me no likey damn i know everybody is entitled to their own opinion but you soud so homophobic. yeah neyo is a fruity butt butt, but you sound angry as hell at him. you know what they say about people that hate gay people too much. you might want to check your closet and see if you got something hidden in there. HOW U DOIN?

whitney is on her way back.

whitney is on her way back. next time, just leave akon off the cut (i give his black butt the side eye e'rytime..) ne-yo...if you wanted to sing it, you should have kept it..

Neyo always has to find a way

Neyo always has to find a way to let people know what song he wrote. DAMN, be easy yo.

Can Ne-yo just let the artist

Can Ne-yo just let the artist have the song already, damn. I feel once they've paid for it, it's theirs. If you like it that much, than keep it for yourself, simple as that. I mean this dude has to remind us every chance he gets that he wrote a top ten song by performing some alternate version. No, I don't wanna hear your version of irreplaceable or take a bow. If that was the case than he'd be releasing those songs instead. Listen, I give him props for the lyrics but ultimately the artist adds the final touch.

1. I am loving the Whitney

1. I am loving the Whitney track. I am so glad that Nippy is getting her life together! 2. Ne-Yo...*smh*. That song was so lame!!! I am so tired of him coming out with these wack "response" songs to songs that he wrote. I get what he is trying to do, and the concept is on-point. But, the execution is terrible. Note to Ne-Yo: Stop releasing this call and response material until such time as you perfect it. Otherwise, please spare the rest of us from having to hear the garbage.

I'm just happy she's healthy

I'm just happy she's healthy and singing again. I like the song, can't say i luv it yet. And of course its not classic whitney. Its 2008, and she's been through things thats affected her voice.

Why does Neyo sound better

Why does Neyo sound better than Rhianna vocally? Wow, impressive...yeah, he does look a little tangy, but dude is talented, he wrote songs for many artists way before and after he came on the scene...don't knock him for that... ------------- Whitney is one of the few artists who does not need to collaborate, esp. with Akon. Hopefully this is just for her to get assimilated again, but Whitney can blow and in a league of her own...

Yall give Whitney a chance. I mean she is in her forties and voice do change. Do you think that Beyonce will sound the same when she is 40? Nonetheless, I am loving this song by Whitney and Akon. Cannot wait for her comeback album.
