With ‘Let Me Love You’ still riding high on singles charts the world over, it’s safe to say the latest era of Ne-Yo‘s career is shaping up to be all flavours of successful.
Indeed, despite its supporting album ‘R.E.D’ struggling to live up commercial expectations in the US, the album’s European chart run has seen the singer’s stock as a live act flourish as a result- as seen in the launch of his UK arena tour.
A feat very few acts from any market can say they achieved in the last decade, Mr ‘Compound’s current touring venture has already seen him sell 20,000 tickets for a single date at London’s 02 Arena, no doubt cementing his status as one of R&B’s strongest contenders.
