Ne-Yo: ‘So Sick’ AUDIO and LP in Stores Feb. 28!!!

FROM SONGWRITER TO R&B
SENSATION, NE-YO IS SET TO UNLEASH HIS MUSICAL TALENTS ON HIS LONG
AWAITED DEBUT “IN MY OWN WORDS” FEBRUARY 28 ON DEF JAM
RECORDINGS!!!

A master in the art of
storytelling, Ne-Yo began writing at an early age. A vivid
imagination and creative energy has allowed Ne-Yo to write songs for
multi-platinum artists such as Mary J. Blige,
B2K, Faith Evans, and
Musiq. When asked about writing number one hits for
other artists, simply put, Ne-Yo said, “I feel there is always
room for good music. I want to reach people’s soul with my lyrics thru
whatever vessel God chooses.”

Set to release his debut
album on Def Jam Recordings, this dynamic entertainer is ready to
deliver. Infusing pop melodies to rich, soulful production the album
is sure to score with fans and critics alike. Relying on mostly his
own in-house crew Compound, Ne-Yo creates both a unique sound and
sentiment for his records. Songs like the first single
“Stay” (featuring Peedi Crack) exemplify Ne-Yo’s nuanced,
layered vocals and sample free production. “So Sick”, a
beautiful track in which he laments hearing love songs on the radio
due to the feelings they conjure, reveals his voice to be clean and
almost elated, but rich and weathered at the same time. But true to
his charismatic character, the album shows many sides of Ne-Yo and
even finds him lighter, more playful, even coy, on “When You’re
Mad.” Sure cello hits move the track as Ne-Yo floats above,
telling his woman that she’s even more beautiful when she’s mad.

With the album in the chamber, ready to go, Ne-Yo now just has
to prepare himself for the stardom that is sure to follow. “The
toughest part has been getting used to being known,” he
confesses, “I’ve always been the writer, the guy in the
background, but being the actual artist is a whole new experience for
me.”

Citing Prince, Marvin
Gaye, The Rat Pack, and Stevie
Wonder in his list of favorite entertainers, Ne-Yo’s album
invokes a nostalgic feeling, a renaissance if you will. Whether it’s
the bedroom or the dance floor, Ne-Yo’s songs are filled with passion
and intense energy that pulls (you into the music) and puts you into a
zone.

Ne-Yo is taking the music industry by storm, as he
graces and challenges popular music with his writing & vocal
talents. Much more than today’s male singer, Ne-Yo is a rare artist;
expressing creativity thru drawings, paintings, martial arts and song.
He is distinguished by youthful energy with in-depth lyrics that touch
the soul. Ne-Yo is honored and ecstatic to be apart of the Def Jam
brand, which produces some of the best R&B and hip-hop artists in
the world.
