Ne-Yo’s New Album Will Be ‘99.999998 Percent R&B’

'Money Can't Buy,' his new single featuring Jeezy, is a step in that direction.
Over the last few years, Ne-Yo has struck gold with his foray into the EDM scene. Features on hits like “Give Me Everything,” as well as his own EDM-inspired last album, R.E.D., and its smash single, “Let Me Love You (Until You Learn To Love Yourself),” made some wonder if the singer would ever return to his R&B roots.

Fear not: That’s exactly what he plans to do on his new album, Non Fiction.

“I needed my R&B fans to know that I hadn’t abandoned them,” Ne-Yo said during an interview with Power 105.1’s “The Breakfast Club” on Tuesday (May 27) — the same day that he released his Jeezy-assisted new single, “Money Can’t Buy.”

“I had heard something like that being said, and nothing could be farther from the truth. I’ma keep the lights on; I’ma make the money. But I’m also gonna make the music that feels good to me. But at the same time, I do understand where that came from.”
