"Just Go" is a single by Lionel Richie from his 2009 album Just Go. The song, a duet with Akon, was released on March 12, 2009 and - following its UK release - was described by noted R&B writer Pete Lewis of the award-winning 'Blues & Soul' as "a seductively tuneful single with a Caribbean-tinged lilt".[1]

Music video[edit]

In the music video, a young man comes by his girlfriend's workplace to take her out on her birthday. Her manager kindly tells her to go and that he'll cover for her. Richie and Akon then appear, singing the song in a tropical paradise.
