Ne-Yo talks to MTV’s Tim Kash about the rigorous recording process for his concept album Libra Scale, and his ongoing experimentation(s) with the project, which he reveals he’s never done before. He says that he’s uncertain what the 4th single will be, and mentions the album is 80% done as he’s still recording the album (October 19th is lookin’ iffy.) Towards the end, he briefly speaks on his upcoming work with Beyonce (not much said,) the possibility of collaborating with Lady Gaga, and unreleased songs he wrote for Michael Jackson.

Ne-Yo Inspired By Michael Jackson, Boredom On ‘Libra Scale’

July 21, 2010 Leave a comment

Ne-yo has revealed that his upcoming new album Libra Scale is a project in which he felt the need to be more creative in the vein of the late Michael Jackson because he was bored of his previous material:

“It is made up of a few components. Firstly, boredom! I was bored with the concept of just doing another compilation of songs. I wanted to do something with a little more creative edge to it. Secondly, the late great Michael Jackson. Looking back on what he did for entertainment as a whole was a key inspiration and motivation to push the envelope a little bit”.

“I did it for the sake of entertainment. Nobody really does concepts anymore, thus the music, the visual, the whole nine is just bland. Call this album seasoning salt for the entertainment pallet”. Source

It has been confirmed by his rep that R&B singer Ne-Yo is expecting his first child with girlfriend, Monyetta Shaw, MTV has announced.

“I am 30, and I do have my first child (due in January) on the way, and I’m very, very, very excited about that,” the music star has said.

Shaw had her first ultrasound done recently, but the doctor could not determine the sex of the baby because he or she was curled up in the womb. Ne-Yo reportedly called the child “stubborn,” adding that “they didn’t get that one from me.”
