Watch: Ne-Yo Shares News On New Album, Talks Beyonce & Status of R&B

Screen shot 2012 07 14 at 6.41.04 PM Watch:  Ne Yo Shares News On New Album, Talks Beyonce & Status of R&B

 

‘Miss Independent’ maestro Ne-Yo may have been missing from charts for the last few years, but he is certainly looking to turn that around with his upcoming LP ‘R.E.D.’ (September 18th).  Led by the racy ‘Lazy Love’, the singer is looking to deliver on his promise to debut his ‘bad boy side’ on the next album.

While That Grape Juice was treated to an exclusive listen of some of the record’s offerings, Ne-Yo took to KissFmUK to inform fans of what they can expect from the record, his work with Michael Jackson & Beyonce, and his thoughts on electro-pop and the failing status of R&B.

A great watch indeed. Get into it after the jump:

    You obviously have not listened to Fortune, which is an urban R&B based CD not a euro-pop CD! I think ppl need to grow up and enjoy the music. They also need to shut up and allow artists the freedom to create a sound they enjoy without always bening ridiculed. beyonce’s 4 was a good R&B CD. Why can’t be be happy with that. Who cares how much she sold. She is Beyonce. Her music will sell.

    I disagree with Ne-Yo. R&B is dead on mainstream radios because they are all about trend. It has always been like this. Something is hot today; old tomorrow. Songs like ‘Call Me Maybe’, ‘Someone Like You’, ‘We Found Love’, ‘Part Of Me’ etc wouldn’t have charted if they had been released a few years ago. Last decade was all about thug rappers and s*** divas singing about urban life, s** and break up songs. Today, it’s all about naive songs that teenagers can relate to and club bangers.
    As soon as this dance sensation wears off, radios will jump on a new thing. I think indie will be the next trend.

    I disagree with your two major points. Rihanna and Katy’s songs could of done well without being the trend because all their songs do so well on the radio and people are used to them. Carly Rae determined on following the trend because she isn’t established and nobody wold put as much faith in her to make a catchy song as they would Katy.

    And I don’t see indie happening, Rih, katy, and bey will probably work to make sure that doesen’t stick and they’re songs become the trend. Gaga will copy though, she is a trend copier.

    FireIce Replied:

    Benron, shut up. Seriously, you don’t know what you’re talking about. You’re in all these articles offering commentary that you appear to think sounds logical and informed, but it actually sounds stupid.

    If you don’t think Rihanna and Katy are placating to the trend, then I have a bridge to sell you. Katy has been around since the early 00’s, and flopped for most of the decade…until dance music came along and she was able to jump on that bandwagon. Soon as it dies, she’s done. No other genre of music is going to accept her in it. Same with Rihanna. Anything she releases that doesn’t fit into the current wave (“Man Down,” “California King Bed,” “You Da 1,” “Talk That Talk”) flops. She couldn’t even get “Birthday Cake” to become a pop hit. She only thrives in dance music, and like Katy, as soon as it dies down…Rihanna is over.

    Benron Replied:

    Im not tryingto sound anything. FIREICE Birthday cake was an urban hit because it wqas release to urban radio, #2 without an itunes release. Cheers drink to that wasn’t dance pop, neither whats my name, russian roulette, hard. I could g oon forever, she makes trends.

    Lax Replied:

    @FireIce You stfu…who died and left you in charge
    @BENRON is commenting just like yo ass is and have
    got a right to do what the phuck they want to do as long
    as That Grape isn’t complaining. We all tell others to shut
    the phuck up its a figure of speach but to justify yo point you got to say that….Rihanna is over if Rih is over then yo ass is over. And another thing as long as Rihanna is #3 and katy is in the top 5 of the highest paid then others need to change up their music and the nerves of yo ass to name Rih’s song and call them flops you stfu, Forever…. Rihanna sings many Genres of music.
    I notice that often times beyonce have two songs in the same group at many of these award show and she is pop and r&b so it don’t matter its all about different strokes for different folks.

    Lax Replied:

    @FireIce You stated that Rih’s songs don’t fit into
    the current wave, what Mofo wave you talking bout the one in yo plastic swimming pool in yo fro t yard in the hood?
    Just learn a few Facts, deery
    Who run the world? Girls.” Beyonce‘s words ring true in Forbes‘ latest list of the highest-paid celebrities under 30.

    Taylor Swift and Rihanna top the Forbes list with Justin Bieber in the No. 3 slot while Lady Gaga and Katy Perry round out the top 5
    Now for all of you serious d**k slingers where or all of these that or more Talented, that you speak of who can do everything better then that Queen Goat, where in the f*** or they? Put up or STFU…..

    Lax Replied:

    The next time some one have got something to say about
    the way Rihanna sounds and how untalented Rihanna or
    i will smile to myself and remember that Rih pulled in 53 million more paper then all of us put together will make for the resst of our natural life on earth. Rihanna have more paper then she will ever spend in six live times.

    Debbie Replied:

    I agree with you. However, Indie music is not new. The mainstream media always includes Indie artists like Mumford & Sons and FosterThe People. They just don’t show them the same type love they do traditional Pop music artists like Justine Bieber.

    Ne-Yo’s answer to the euro/pop question was PURE b******* and screams politically correct. EVERYONE knows the real reason artists are switching to this sound is because that is the audience that’s buying music! Point blank period…. once the R&B audience starts buying music legally again artists will come back to it.

    I cant wait for this electro pop movement to die. Im sick of my R&b artistts abandoning the sound that made them famous, alienating fans. (Im talking about u Usher and sometimes Ne-yo). I dont want to ever see u do a song with Pitbull again! I honestly havent liked what the radio had to offer since about 2006-2007. I appreciate ppl like Beyonce who dont go the pop route just cause its whats selling right now.

    she crossed over with IASF but you would still class it as r&b with pop tendancies. not straight up dance-pop

    Debbie Replied:

    I agree with you. Beyonce’s earlier music had more Pop flavor. I’m not saying it’s a bad thing just my observations. ‘4’ was more a traditional R&B CD with a few euro-pop dance type songs. I don’t know why R&B artists are constantly being slammed for doing both types of music if they enjoy doing them?
