I can’t say this was unexpected, unwarranted or something we were just plain hoping would happen. Ne-Yo has announced his decision to change the title of his anticipated fifth studio album. The initially promoted title “The Cracks In Mr. Perfect” did not receive much positive feedback … so this could be a wise decision.
The R&B singer-songwriter recently told HipHollywood that he has changed the title to “The R.E.D. Album,” which stands for “Realizing Every Dream.”
“The last couple of years, I’ve taken a little bit of time to step back, and just look at everything that has happened in my life, everything that is going on right now, and make the realization that I’m absolutely doing that, I’m realizing every dream I’ve ever had. I’m blessed…and a lot of people can’t say that. So this album is celebrating the mature dreams, the immature dreams, just every dream that I’ve ever had, and how I am slowly but surely realizing every single one.”
He goes on to talk about his new role at Universal Motown as SVP of A&R, and their plans for revival and artist development.
