Closer by Ne-Yo was a UK number 1 hit on Saturday, July 5, 2008 spending 1 week(s) at the top of the UK charts. This topped the UK chart after an eight week climb. It was the first single to reach #1 on the UK single chart as late as eight weeks. Ne-Yo explained the inspiration behind this track to The Boston Globe September 18, 2008: "I knew I wanted to do something that was very much U.K.-inspired, very much along the lines of house, trance, techno, but I knew I couldn't do a straight-up house record or a straight-up techno record. I had to do something that had elements of it but still had elements of R&B, which is my base, and that's exactly what that track was. (Stargate) played the track, and it was exactly where I wanted to go, anyway. I think that's why we work. We're getting to the point where we finish each other's sentences musically."
