Exclusive: Ne-Yo Declares “I Want Us To Get Back To The R&B That Made Us Feel”

Published: Sunday 16th Jan 2022 by Sam

As modern R&B veterans go, few come as seasoned or as successful as Ne-Yo. 

Winner of multiple GRAMMY Awards and countless other accolades, the performer has firmly established his name and music in the history books.

Now, as he continues along his path, the star’s excitement about  R&B extends beyond his own work to the new names making a splash in the genre.

Ahead of the Urban One Honors 2022, which he is hosting on January 17, Ne-Yo sat down with That Grape Juice‘s Chet Kincaid to discuss the talent hot on his radar – including H.E.R., Lucky Daye, and recent collaborator Yung Bleu.

Check out the interview above and be sure to tune in to the Urban Honors 2022 on Monday, January 17, 2022, Martin Luther King, Jr. Day, at 8/7c, on TV One and Cleo TV.

    Yung Bleu is not r&b and neither are the first two singles “What If” and “Stay Down”, but I’m still a fan.

    Maseo, King, Daley, Luckey Daye, Gallant, Kevin Ross, sza, Summer Walker, Ari Lennox, Jazmine Sullivan, Giveon, Sevyn Streeter are all putting out great music right now. Many more upcoming r&b artist are on the rise too so im not sure what Neyo is talking about. 🥴
