Ne-Yo Set to Release First Mixtape

Published: Thursday 4th Aug 2011 by TGJ Staff

It seems R&B singer/songwriter Ne-Yo, has caught the mixtape bug, like contemporaries Chris Brown and Trey Songz. In addition to a role in the upcoming film ‘Redtails’, Ne-Yo plans to release the free set of music, entitled ‘101’, before  his fifth studio album hits shelves this Fall.

Check out details below…

2011 BET Awards host Kevin Hart is set to pull hosting duties on the upcoming mixtape. Ne-Yo revealed the news in a series of tweets.

“Ladies and Gents…stay tuned for my 101 mixtape hosted by @kevinhart4reall lil something to hold ya til the album is ready! Coming soon!!”

“Warning…this mixtape will show a side of me rarely seen…my imperfect side! But it’s all in good fun ya’ll. Don’t panic! LOL!!”

“Kinda dig this mixtape thing…more freedom. After this one expect to hear more. Shit is fun!”

    Kevin Hart is funny but I would not be looking forward to him talking on a mixtape….

    And why all of these R&B singers wanna do mixtapes? There’s nothing wrong with it but Most Times the Mixtapes have betters material than the album!!!

    I hate that!!!

  8. ZANIA August 4, 2011

    Actually I like Neyo previous albums before Libra Scale, he put out some good R & B songs previously, so I will be looking for to hearing his music. Hoping some good music come out this year in the male R & B other than my boo Chris Brown.

    why bother witha mixtape? just release a new album to make be forget about Libra Scale. One in a Million was the only song i liked off that album.

  13. ASAP (As Sincere As Possible) August 4, 2011

    I’m actually excited about it.His ‘Libra Scale’ era was a nightmare, but it’s nice that he wants to keep working.
    And I don’t get the Ne-Yo shade in this post.Yeah, I’m not fond of his personallity either but why are people criticizing him for releasing a mixtape???

  14. ASAP (As Sincere As Possible) August 4, 2011


    And btw, after releasing a mixtape, I hope he will never take any jabs at Chris Brown again.

  15. lol August 4, 2011

    soo this is what it has come to neyo ?

  16. loveCRIMES August 4, 2011

    The-Dream free internet album with sh*t all over Ne-MO’s mixtape.

  17. kody3x August 4, 2011

    neyo wack as hell to me he does write hits tho

  18. SelenaFabulousGomezFan August 4, 2011

    I thought Libra Scale was a decent album…

  19. KingBreezy August 4, 2011

    lets wait and see

  20. truth is August 4, 2011

    FYI this would not be his first mixtape

  21. ZANIA August 4, 2011

    I think the reason why most artist are releasing mixtapes, to filled their fans out and see what they like. Just because they like the song doesn’t necessary mean that the majority will love the song. Music is changing so much into electro pop and s** songs, its hard to determine what song people are feeling. Yes he was back and forth with Chris over the past two years, like a woman. One day they are friends the next day he is mad at Chris, like they were in some relationship LOL. He needs to stop airing out his feelings against other artist and put out a good song.

    Bravo Ne-Yo for always keeping it new and exciting!

  23. chris knibbs August 4, 2011

  24. claire August 4, 2011

  25. MISHKA August 4, 2011

    “Do You”, “Mad”, “Part of The list”…I listen to those songs on a weekly basis.

    Good for you, Ne-Yo, Bring R&B back !!!

    SN: Ain’t nobody worried about ’em trolls.

  26. Chill August 4, 2011

    Screw all u discouraging Ne-Yo. Libra Scale was not even bad at all. Yeah, Year of the Gentleman had much more classic songs, but that doesn’t make Libra Scale a bad album. Yall need to chill with who’s better in the R&B community. It ain’t a competitive thing. Every artist should give it their best in their work. it’s clear to see that Ne-Yo has a different style in his music than most modern R&B artists. Ne-Yo tends to make different sounds of music because he’s a songwriter and he writes and records for different genres in music.

    Whatever he turns his hand to is alright by me! Love all he does! 🙂 xx

    This is what I’m talkin ’bout.

    Enough said.

  29. nice_gurl August 5, 2011

    I like mixtapes, ’cause I like to hear the experimentation from the artist.
