Ne-Yo, who’s been in the game for almost two-and-a-half decades at this point, rarely misses when it comes to the emotional breakup song. His voice, his delivery, his lyrics — all of it works in harmony and puts you right in the R&B icon’s shoes as he bares his soul and shares his emotions.

Just a couple of months after introducing his newborn daughter to the world, the “Miss Independent” singer showed up and showed out with his new single “What If.”

Showing off his signature vocals, Ne-Yo gets down to business, seemingly talking to the listener or, in this case, a former lover in a half-speaking, half-singing. Building into a big chorus in which Ne-Yo wonders what would have happened had just a couple of things gone differently, the record runs through the ups and downs of the end of a relationship and the feelings that come with realizing it’s over.

Featuring a catchy hook with tons of dance possibilities, “What If” comes with visuals that find Ne-Yo face-to-face with a broken mirror, his classic fedora and some good, old-fashioned 90s R&B, dancing a couple inches of water as rain falls in the background routines featuring the singer himself and a cast of background dancers.

A record that you’ll be able to play when you catch yourself staring in the mirror a little too long, “What If” is an emotional mix of poignant lyrics and moving music that is sure to get you feeling something.

Lyrics

[Verse 1]
Last night your name came up in conversation
They were telling me you’d found love in a new location
And I swear my mind went through the time when you and I got faded
And I promised you we’d make it
Fast forward two years and we were over
Ubered to the airport when I know I should’ve drove you
Later on I’d tell myself that breaking up was worth it
But deep down I’m still uncertain

[Chorus]
What if, if we never let it go?
What if, we were way too young to know, what it was?
Us just chilling like before, tell me, wasn’t that enough?
What if, if you never left that night?
What if, I never let you board that flight?
What if you, if you could only read my mind?
Maybe we’d still be in love

[Verse 2]
Last night your name came up in conversation
Everybody singing his praises
This great new dude you dating (Ah-ah, ah-ah)
And I’m over you, but I had a few so it’s probably true, I was faded (Probably true, I was faded)
But damn it, I just could not take it (I just could not take it)
I remember things were so good when you were with me
But then I went and broke your heart so bad, you moved up out the city
No hating, I’m so glad that you’re so happy now
But I wonder, do you ever think about

[Chorus]
(The) What if, if we never let it go?
What if, we were way too young to know, what it was?
Us just chilling like before, tell me, wasn’t that enough?
What if, if you never left that night?
What if, I never let you board that flight?
What if you, if you could only read my mind?
Maybe we’d still be in love

[Post-Chorus]
(Ah-ah) Ah yeah, yeah-yeah
(Ah-ah) Ah yeah, yeah-yeah, yeah
(Ah-ah) Ah yeah, yeah-yeah
(Ah-ah) Ah yeah, yeah-yeah, yeah
(Ah-ah) Ah yeah, yeah-yeah
(Ah-ah) Ah yeah, yeah-yeah, yeah
Ah yeah, yeah-yeah, yeah

[Chorus]
What if, if we never let it go?
What if, we were just too young to know, what it was?
Us chilling like before, wasn’t that enough?
Hey, yeah
What if, if you never left that night? (Never left that night)
What if, I never let you board that flight?
What if you (You, ooh, you, ooh, you, you), if you could only read my mind?
Maybe we’d still be in love

[Post-Chorus]
(Ah-ah) Ah yeah, yeah-yeah
(Ah-ah) Ah yeah, yeah-yeah, yeah
(Ah-ah) Ah yeah, yeah-yeah
(Ah-ah) Ah yeah, yeah-yeah, yeah
(Ah-ah) Ah yeah, yeah-yeah
(Ah-ah) Ah yeah, yeah-yeah, yeah
(Ah-ah) Ah yeah, yeah-yeah
