Ne-Yo She Knows

Ne-Yo is just warming up as he is putting the finishing touches on his upcoming album. Following the first single lifted from the project, “Money Can’t Buy” featuring Jeezy, the R&B hit maker is letting fans know the official follow-up is on the way.

Taking to social media Ne-Yo shared the cover art for the new single “She Knows” featuring Juicy J. “NEW SH*T!! “She Knows” feat. Juicy J #JustWaitOnIt #NONFICTION #TheArtOfStoryTellingIsAliveAndWell,” he wrote.

As you can see the painted image appears to be a scene in a strip club, while the singer receives a lap dance, but we will have to wait and see if it follows the implied theme. With a feature from Juicy J we can’t really assume otherwise.

In addition to the artwork, Ne-Yo posted a short preview clip of him playing the song in the studio, while singer Jojo dances along.

His sixth studio album Non-Fiction is due out November 11, check out the single preview below:
