“Never Forget You” continues Lupe’s trend of blending alt rock-themed beats with his gift of gab. It’s an uplifting song in the vein of “The Show Goes On.” Thing is, I prefer this record as John Legend takes the reigns on the chorus. Additionally the production, especially the buildup at the start of the record, makes the track sound quite epic and well developed.

“Never Forget You” is definitely polarizing as it touts a mainstream sound similar to “Airplanes” and “Love The Way You Lie.” It’s an enjoyable piece if you’re into those genre bending chart toppers. These efforts are hit and miss for my tastes. But Lupe’s latest got a good number of spins from me.
