Last night Ne-Yo dropped by our iHeartRadio Theatre for a special #BehindTheBeat with me and a room of lucky listeners!
One of my favorite things about doing these #BehindTheBeat's is that they are soooo much more then just a sit down interview. Some of my listeners get a chance to win a seat to this uber private and exclusive meeting, ask their own questions, take pics and have access to one of their favorite artists!
Ne-Yo has long been one of my favorite artists to chat with because of his humility and genuine spirit. Check out the three part footage below and be sure to cop his upcoming album, Non-Fiction in January!
*Psssst* The video for Part 2 is my fav!
Part 1: Ne-Yo shares why he has pushed back the release of his album Non- Fiction and talks about the what the real release date will be!
Part 2: Ne-Yo addresses people thinking he abandoned R&B, talks his sexual fantasies (and addresses a new Burger King one). He talks about being a parent in the music industry and what he has learned about himself as a man since becoming a father. He also shares the grind behind his success that people don't see.
Part 3: Ne-Yo shares that he was actually up for the role of James Brown in Get On Up and says he would love to play Sammy Davis Jr in the movie version of a book he bought the rights to about the singers life. Ne-Yo also introduces us to his new artist Candice's music and explains the writing behind her debut song Lesbian!
