Ne-Yo is cookin’ up his next album, and to get the fans ready he has shared a behind-the-scenes look at a recent recording session he had with fellow R&B singer/songwriter Eric Bellinger.
Taking to his Instagram on Wednesday night, Ne-Yo posted a one-minute clip with the caption: “The process…. Much love to my dude @ericbellinger Thanx for adding to the sauce boi boi!! This album is going to be special. I promise. 💀❤️🎼 🔥🔥🔥 PATIENCE. IT’S COMING.”
For the first time in his career, the “Sexy Love” singer is working with a handful of other songwriters to enhance the process and give him a fresh take. Speaking about his decision to do so, Ne-Yo explained: “It’s not that I can’t do it myself, I can definitely do it myself, but this time I decided to bring in some folks to expand on what I already had … That’s what its about, it’s about expanding it’s about evolution, while at the same time staying true to who you are.”
Ne-Yo and Eric Bellinger have been building their working relationship more recently, but Eric is credited for penning the title song “Think Like A Man” which Ne-Yo sang along with Jennifer Hudson, for the soundtrack to the 2012 comedy Think Like A Man.
