Video: Ne-Yo Talks New Album, Writing For Beyonce, Rihanna Video & More!



In between diaper duty for his three-month-old daughter and writing for Jennifer Hudson and his new artist Loren Allred, Ne-Yo has been in the lab working on his fifth album. For those that didn’t grasp last year’s concept-heavy Libra Scale, the R&B gentleman is keeping it simple on his next project.

“I’m putting together a new album as we speak. Be looking for that in September,” Ne-Yo told Rap-Up TV at Jay-Z and LeBron James’ Two Kings Dinner. “I’m definitely gonna make this one a little more simple. I feel like [on] Libra Scale, I got a little too cool for the room. It was a little difficult to understand what was going on, catch the concept. So this one is gonna be more about just listening to the music and vibing out.”

While we pressed for answers, the singer was unable to reveal too much about Beyoncé’s next album. “It’s coming along nicely,” he shared. “I did a couple sessions with Beyoncé. I don’t know what she’s going to keep. I know that Beyoncé is one of those artists that always tries to push the envelope, so nothing is ever good enough, but that’s what makes Beyoncé Beyoncé.”

He also offered his thoughts on his pal Rihanna’s controversial video for “S&M.” “I think it’s a very entertaining video,” said Ne-Yo with a smirk.

    LIbra Scale
    I loved the album and I'm sure I'll love the next one! I'm just dying to know why "Hurt me" wasn't in the album. I lobe that song and I thought it fits perfectly as another up beat song in it. All the songs you do are amazing, even the ones that don't find place in your albums! P.S. Concert in London was indescribable!

    How do you do it? Impressive but tiring just to hear I must admit.
    I can't believe you're seriously putting out another album. LS is a baby. How you are able to put albums out year after year I don't know. Nonetheless you maintain solid work. And you're not finishing up some other Libra Scale videos to fin...ish your story? Don't leave it hanging, at least rap it up with a couple other joints man. Like Makin A Movie, Telekinesis & What Have I Done to close it out or something like that. Videos like One in A Million demand more especially after the "To Be Continued" at the ends of the vids. You are truly a workaholic. Enjoy the down time bro. Everyone ought to know by now you got game. Take in life. We'll be here when you get back. Not pushing you out by any means, just saying. Been a supporter from day 1 & we'll all continue to buy your albums, but if you take a decent break, none of us (those not acting in selfishness) would mind.
