Ne-Yo Scores UK #1 With ‘Beautiful Monster’

Published: Sunday 8th Aug 2010 by Sam

R&B star Ne-Yo will no doubt be celebrating tonight after his latest single ‘Beautiful Monster’ stormed to the top of the Official UK Singles Chart.

This marks the third time the singer-songwriter has hit number one on the chart – with previous singles ‘Closer’ and ‘So Sick’ enjoying the same status. What’s more, the song’s sales have pushed Ne-Yo’s total UK singles sales past the two million mark.

Though ‘Beautiful Monster’ stands as my least favourite release from Ne-Yo, he’s clearly doing his thing at present. More power to him.

Your thoughts?

    Good for him. It’s not my favorite track, but it’s a grower.

    I would be happy for him if he wasn’t such a jackass. I’m not here for Neyo’s bubble gum pop, I like r&b Neyo

    So what let the bytch go find his boyfriend in Toyka and have some Champaine. Now where is that person that supposed to get a picture of them?

    I wonder how well the album will actually do??

    I’ve heard the song like once and I live in the UK…who the hell is buying it? I don’t remember it being much good…and that’s coming from someone who loves some of Ne-Yo’s work – like LeToya’s NOT ANYMORE…or even his own Miss Independant

    OMG, LOL….LOL that is freaking hilarious! I am fond of the UK but damn really y’all “BEAUTIFUL MONSTER”? That song is just awful period. Champaign Life is so much better and this is coming from a new Ne-H** hater!

  10. K.Row Kid August 9, 2010

    Yay for Ne-Yo! The song is ok though. 😛

    I have a feeling David Guetta will probably decide to release “Choose” since this and Commander did well. 🙂

  11. ADE August 9, 2010

    The song sucks!!

  12. SteH90 August 9, 2010

    Champagne Life is 100 times better than Beautiful Monster but the current market in the UK is for this kind of melody-light, over-noisy Europop so what can us R&B fans do?

  13. Commander for Kelly & Ciara August 9, 2010

    IN THE UK THEY GIVE ANY MUH’FUKKAZ NO.1’S SORRI BUT THEY DO

  14. futurestarDELUX August 9, 2010

    I LIVE IN THE UK AND I WANNA APOLOGISE FOR THIS DISGUSTING NEWS. THIS SONG IS A JOKE AND THE VIDEO IS S*** AND WHAT’S WITH THE ASHANTI LOOKALIKE WITH THE LIGHT BULB EYES IN THE STARWARS STORM TROOPER OUTFIT? LOL

    P.S CHAMPAGNE LIFE HASN’T BEEN RELEASED IN THE UK YET.

  15. Robier August 9, 2010

    Wtf is up in the UK. I love the diversity but this is stupid

  16. YEAHISAIDITWHATTHEFUCKYOUGONDOABOUTIT August 9, 2010

    um one keyword he went number in the UK with that s***. Both Beautiful Monster is doing terrible on the charts in US and Champagne Life fell off the US charts in two weeks. The US doesn’t play that s***, it’s either a ham sandwich or the record and as you can see there’s alot of obesity in America. Next person’s single that’s going to flop is Trey Songz no matter how many fans he has some of them will DOWNLOAD that s*** illegally, cause it’s not even worth the money to pay for. Trey aka “Mr S***” should do a porno or a calender and get the f*** off my radio and television altogether

    I really dislike this song! But I like “Champagne Life.”

  18. K4Kenzo August 9, 2010

    yeah i’m from tha uk and sadly anything goes to number one . really dunno how .. ughh i miss good music

  19. VA STAND UP!!! August 9, 2010

    @~TeAM WeeZY~: Me too!

    Well…this is good for him. I will hold no grudges against him and try to dismiss his success just cause he has been getting on my nerves latetly. I really don’t like ‘Beautiful Monster’ though. It’s so annoying how he says ‘beautiful’. How is it doing here in the states??

    I do like ‘Champagne Life’ but I am still not checking for his album. *kanye shrug*

  20. Music lover August 10, 2010

    The UK knows how to appreciate a good dancey number!! The US just doesn’t seem to be too fond of uptempo music I have say, go Ne Yo!!!

  21. XaxitaHJackson January 24, 2011

    Ne-Yo I love you forever but I love more my Michael Jackson, I’m Chilean and Spanish speak English any information that I have need of everything until Michael as his underwear was ok? I wait in my fotolog ok see you love and peace to you …
