Ne-Yo’s ready to break some new ground:
“R&B star Ne-Yo is promising fans new sounds on his upcoming album Year Of The Gentleman – because he has become “bored” of urban music. The “So Sick” singer – real name Shaffer Smith – is preparing to drop his third album in June.
But the star claims his new LP is different from his previous work – because he is no longer interested in urban music.
He says, ‘There’s some stuff on there that sounds like something the Beatles might’ve done. There’s some stuff on there that sounds like something Billy Joel might’ve done. I can’t do just straight urban music no more, because to be completely honest with you, I’m a little bored with it. I’m just moving with what music excites me now.’
Billy Joel? The Beatles? We’ve got to hear this new fruity endeavor. We’ll reserve judgement, but remain a little skeptical about this one.
