In My Own Words,
is fed-up with the sloppiness of current R&B. “Years ago, if you weren’t wearing the right suit or have a correct crease in your pants, you couldn’t even get in the door—let alone on stage to perform.” With Ne-Yo’s third disc, Year of the Gentleman, the Las Vegas native and premier songwriter has constructed a suite of songs that shows exactly what he means by class. Written over the course of travels through Europe last year and influenced by his own fascination with the Rat Pack, NE-YO explains, “For me, the sharpness of Sammy and Sinatra is the kind of style I strive for in clothes and music. Year of the Gentleman is named in honor of those guys.” In September NE-YO returns with a new CD entitled, “Libra Scale” featuring the smash new single “Beautiful Monster.”
