Whether speeding on R&B lanes or making waves on EDM seas, Ne-Yo– it would seem- is incapable of making poor music.
Perhaps with this in mind, he was enlisted by Camp Beyonce to submit material for her hotly anticipated new album recently after enjoying critical acclaim with his latest LP ‘RED’.
Now, in an interview with Billboard Magazine, the Grammy winning chart topper has revealed that Beyonce is still in the developmental stages of the album…and is yet to decide in which direction she hopes to take it.
“I’m still putting stuff together for Beyoncé’s album. They’re still trying to figure out what they want that to be, which I’m not mad at. Beyoncé’s the kind of artist where you’re not gonna see it till it’s right. And her fans — they love her so they’ll be patient.”
Sure…while this is a little confusing considering fans had been promised new material at the start of the year, Ne-Yo‘s admission serves as the best piece of news to come from the album’s ’cause’ to date.
For, considering the fact that ‘4′ was able to shift 2 million units worldwide without a hit to its name, we’re sure Bey is itching to right the promotional wrongs committed during that campaign with an album that outperforms anything she’s done before.
She’s an artist….and she’s sensitive about her sh*t.
Truth be told, it’d be better for Bey to release a solid album in 2014 and arm it with all the tools it needs to fly, than to push a project she doesn’t completely believe in this year just for the sake of it.
For, as Sony will be all too aware of, Beyonce has all the creative and financial muscle she needs to spawn an era akin to Adele‘s ‘21′ and so -perhaps in understanding her need for perfection- have given her more time to craft material and a roll out that will see her outdo herself.
Think about it, it was only after four albums that Janet Jackson released her most iconic project to date…
