Plus: Ne-Yo talks exclusively to PEOPLE about the song he wrote just for Lohan
In her first new tune from her upcoming album, Lindsay Lohan sings about her assertive personality – and she’s giving PEOPLE an early listen to the track, “Bossy.”
Listen to it here:
Ne-Yo wrote the synth-heavy dance track with the actress in mind, he tells PEOPLE exclusively.
“I wrote it for her because when she’s on her game, you can see these traits in her. When she’s focused, she exudes the aura of a boss with ease,” Ne-Yo explains. “When [producer] Stargate and I were approached with the task, we viewed it as a challenge. ‘Can we make a song for Lindsay Lohan that people were gonna take seriously?’ I think we did it.”
In the song’s chorus, Lohan unapologetically sings, “I’m just a little bossy. I like it how I like it when I like it and that’s how it is.”
Ne-Yo says the song is about strength. “It’s basically about a woman being strong enough to get what she wants when she wants it,” he tells PEOPLE. “In this case, ‘Bossy’ is a term that describes confidence and power.”
“Bossy” is slated to appear on Lohan’s as-yet untitled third album, due on Motown Records later this year.
