Ne-Yo Starts Promoting Sixth Album With Single “Money Can’t Buy”
Ne-Yo scored a hit album and single in 2012, and while we haven’t heard much from him since then, a follow-up was revealed this past weekend.
The sixth album, a follow-up to 2012’s R.E.D., had been announced in February, and this weekend, the self-professed Gentleman unveiled the title and release date for its first single.
Tweeting the album artwork, he captioned the announcement with: “The wait is almost over."
And then said: “Album #6....It starts on Tuesday!!.”
The track is called “Money Can’t Buy” and features Young Jeezy. According to the singer’s statements on Twitter, the track comes out on May 27. So far, a release date for the album hasn’t been announced.
Back when Ne-Yo started talking about the album, he said in a Billboard interview that he plans to go back to his R&B roots, after dabbling with dance on R.E.D. He explained at the time: “I had to go home on this one. Had to take it back to my roots, and not to say that there won’t be one, maybe two songs on there that the dance crowd can get into, but the majority, the girth of the album, will be R&B.”
R.E.D., not to be confused with the Taylor Swift album of a similar title, stands for Realize Every Dream. The album came out in November 2012 and was the singer’s first on Motown Records, after being on Def Jam for a number of years.
The release went up to No. 4 on the Billboard 200 and featured hit single “Let Me Love You.” Other cuts included “Lazy Love,” “Don’t Make Em Like You,” and “Forever Now.”
