The CW Detroit Gossip Girls caught up with Ne-Yo recently for a very insightful interview. The opinionated singer/songwriter revealed that he is in fact quite disappointed by the first week sales of his ‘Libra Scale’ LP which entered the charts at #8 with just over 117k copies sold.
Additionally, Ne-Yo used the opportunity to talk about his experiences of being a new father. Peep the footage and transcript below via Necole Bitchie:
Fatherhood is scary as hell but it’s the most enjoyable fear that I’ve ever experienced. Its love like I’ve never felt before. I’ve been in love with a woman before, I know what that is. I’ve been in love with music before I know what that is. I’ve never experienced love like this, its instant from the second I laid eyes on her. I would do anything to make sure she never hurts or needs for anything in life and I’ve never felt that before. It’s special at the same time it’s scary. You know I don’t got to tell y’all that the world we live in today is not the most positive place all the time so just thinking about the different things that I’m going to have to teach her, hoping that I teach her well that’s the scary part…but its gonna be fun I’m gonna enjoy myself.
On first week album numbers…
I was a little disturbed by my first week numbers, but a lot of things went into that first week number… the album getting leaked a month in advance definitely had something to do with it. That was another situation where I jumped on my soapbox (twitter)and let the world know how I felt about that. You know it’s the world we live in today, it’s the game. You either play the game or you get out. I’m not gonna let the ignorance of some stop me from doing what I feel like I was put on this earth to do.
