As promised, Ne-Yo will be kicking the new year off with a bang. The R&B hitmaker has announced the official release date for his anticipated sixth studio album Non-Fiction.
While on stage at Project Club L.A.’s “Pre-Thanksgiving Bash” on Wednesday night, Ne-Yo revealed to the crowd that his follow-up to 2012′s R.E.D. will be hitting stores on January 27!
The album has been preceded by the Jeezy-assisted single “Money Can’t Buy,” and the strip club banger “She Knows” featuring Juicy J. He previously revealed that the LP will also feature ScHoolboy Q on the Salaam Remi-produced “Run.”
“I came on home with this one,” Ne-Yo told “The Breakfast Club.” “This album is 99.999998% R&B, meaning I can’t completely abandon that fanbase ’cause they kept the lights on for a very long time. I still got some stuff that can live in that [pop] world, but there’s so much R&B on this album.”
Most recently he teamed up with Pitbull once again for the new pop hit “Time of Our Lives,” which they performed during the halftime show of the Dallas Cowboys vs. Philadelphia Eagles Thanksgiving Day game.
