When we first heard the album In My Own Words by Ne-Yo, specifically the track So Sick, we thought he would single-handedly solve all of R&B’s issues. His momentum continued with the album Because Of You, which featured the title track and also the songCan We Chill.
We were definitely not mad at the 2008 release of Year Of The Gentleman, and the album Libra Scale, which came out in 2010.
Then the album R.E.D. came out. This album was heavy on the EDM style. Although I like the genre, I was not a fan of Ne-Yo’s efforts on this front.
He has released the first single off the upcoming album, Good Man. It is the title track, and Ne-Yo looks to be getting back to the traditional R&B sound.
The track is co-written by Ne-Yo, D’Angelo, Raphael Saadiq, and Darhyl Camper, Jr.
We are looking forward to the new album.
