"Can We Chill" is the third single from R&B and pop singer and songwriter Ne-Yo's second studio album, Because of You. (See 2007 in music).

The single became Ne-Yo's lowest charting single in the U.S. and second lowest in the UK. In the U.S., "Can We Chill" failed to chart on the Billboard Hot 100 altogether and only peaked at #52 on the Billboard Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs.

In the UK, "Can We Chill" outperformed previous single "Do You", peaking at number sixty-two on the UK Singles Chart, despite the music video receiving limited airplay before being removed from TV airplay schedules altogether. There was also confusion regarding the singles release date, with some retailers pushing the date back to the 15 October 2007, whereas the 1 October release still remained, despite airplay being limited (the video was premiered in the UK three days before the song's release).
