As from today, I am the proud owner of Ne-Yo’s brand new album R.E.D. To quote the R&B God himself: “ Red is the colour with an undeniable presence, a non apologetic boldness, an irresistible charisma…. It’s the stuff that dreams are made of… “ I couldn’t have said it better myself!
I have been a Ne-Yo fan since his first album, and to those who keep saying that he is just a clone of the Ushers and Chris Browns of this world, I say: Ne-Yo is one in a million!
Granted, for the past two years he has been slightly sidetracked by commercial collaborations (like “Let’s go” with Calvin Harris, a song that I find so emotionally flat).
But HE IS BACK, making the music I love the most: smooth and sexy R&B with great lyrics!
The first track on the album is called “cracks in Mr. Perfect”, but boy, there are definitely no cracks in this album!
What are you all waiting for? You should be running to the store to buy this damn album! A great voice, a cool beat and clever lyrics: what more could you wish for? Still not convinced? Here is a little taste of the sweet and wise lyrics you can expect:
“Perfection, it’s just glorified opinion.
When in the grand scheme of things it’s our imperfections that truly make us perfect
So do yourself a favour, find the beauty in your cracks”
(I’ll give you some time to absorb the beauty of his words 😉 )
Oh, before I forget: he still looks as HANDSOME as ever! His sharp suit, ever-present hat and mysterious eyes, Ne-Yo is – and will always be- A TRUE GENTLEMAN!
