Watch Ne-Yo at KISS and find out about what to expect from his new album.
Ne-Yo’s been in the UK for a few days and has managed to squeeze quite a bit in – a quick Wireless Festival appearance and of course, a trip into KISS FM UK towers (which you can watch below).
Plus, last night, the singer treated some lucky souls (including KISS obviously) to a preview of his forthcoming R.E.D. Album.
Speaking to the small audience, Ne-Yo took us through the album, explaining the inspiration behind each track and the collection as a whole.
Kicking off the exclusive playback, the singer/songwriter explained that R.E.D. which stands for Realising Every Dream, represents how since the age of 9 (when he decided he wanted to focus on music), he has achieved every single goal right up until now (he’s 32).
We heard a mixture of traditional R&B, dance and ‘middle of the road’ tracks. Highlights included an honest ‘faults and all’ number called ‘The Cracks of Mr Perfect’, the Stargate-produced ‘Let Me Love You’ and a single called ‘Should be You’.
