Here’s a team-up I didn’t see coming.

The second single from the New Kids on the Block’s upcoming album, “The Block” is called “Single” and features none other than Ne-Yo sharing lead vocals. I’d imagine he wrote the song too. Either way, women young and old are going to eat this one up. Just listen to the lyrics.

While “Summertime” was a moderate hit, giving the Kids their first Top 40 action in 16 years, this song sounds a little more in tune with what’s going on at radio these days. Ummm…not bad, I must say. Actually, this is better than a lot of the stuff that was on Ne-Yo’s decidedly so-so “Because of You” album.
