Ne-Yo Releases Alternate Version of “She Knows” feat. Juicy J


Ne-Yo is back with round 2 of his sexy new club single “She Knows” featuring Juicy J.  While he released the music video for the song last month, the R&B hitmaker has now decided to share a new, alternative version of the single and video.

While the original included 1 verse from Juicy J in the middle of the song, the new version now includes 2 as the rap legend now opens the song as well.  The new video no longer features any of the comical scenes of the original storyline, which saw Ne-Yo discovering some very talented pole dancers in random locations, such as a dollar store, library and even in the park.

Instead the new version focuses heavily on the talented dancers, but in a darker, more club like setting with smoke machines and colored lights.

Peep the new version below:

Ne-Yo Debuts New Song “Just Kiss Me” with New Artist Sonna Rele


Ne-Yo truly believes in the process of artist development, and as has been the case with up and coming singer Sonna Rele, who he signed to his company Compound Entertainment. The British native has been continuously building her fan base with weekly YouTube covers, while honing her craft and working on her debut album.

While she shares something new each Monday, today the singer has released video footage of her getting the chance to sing on stage with Ne-Yo at the famed Royal Albert Hall in London. Using the opportunity to introduce her to the hometown crowd, Ne-Yo and Sonna gave the audience a first listen to their upcoming duet entitled “Just Kiss Me,” which is intended for her album.

New Music: Candice – Lesbian + Sampler

Candice Lesbian

Last year we were impressed by a new emerging singer/songwriter named Candice, aka Candi Kush, who Ne-Yo had signed to his Compound Entertainment imprint.  While we haven’t heard much since the release of her debut mixtape ‘Live From the Smokers Room,’ the R&B songstress has now returned with a brand new single, and 4 track sampler.

The single will certainly cause some to precede with caution just off the title, “Lesbian,” however it’s the perfect example that you can’t judge a book by it’s cover. Candice finds her man getting so obsessed with the number of previous lovers she’s had that she think he’s acting more like a “girl” than her. She bluntly shares the feelings that many go through when this topic comes up over the smooth track.

“I don’t want to lie to you, but you be asking me, things that if I answer with honestly, I’m gonna look over at you and suddenly there’ll be a vagina where your balls should be,” she sings. Continuing: “It’s like you get a kick out of asking me sh*t that’s gonna give you an excuse to act like a bitch, and I ain’t tryin to call you one, but if we keep this up than we gonna call it one.”

In addition to the new single, Candice gives us a taste of 4 stellar new songs, which will most likely be released on her upcoming project.

Ne-Yo Reveals Story of Infidelity on Upcoming Album ‘Non-Fiction’


Ne-Yo continues to express that he is returning to R&B with his upcoming album Non-Fiction, which is now due in early 2015. Sitting down with AOL’s The Boombox for a recent interview, the platinum hitmaker shared more details about the new LP, his tumultuous love life and the new artists he sees having strong futures.

Ne-Yo revealed there is an interlude on the album, which was originally going to be a full song, but it was too painful to complete, about admitting to the infidelity that ended his engagement to Monyetta Shaw, who is the mother of his two children.

He spoke about another song that he is very excited about, which is titled “Run,” produced by Salaam Remi. It features Schoolboy Q, who he is a big fan of, and centers on the predatory nature of the opposite sex.

“It’s a song that’s kinda talking about that chick who takes pride in breaking up relationships,” Ne-Yo said. “She’s walking, talking, living, breathing temptation. It’s not a typical Ne-Yo song. When you hear this record from the beat to the way that I’m singing, everything about this song is a little different than what you’re used to hearing from me.”

In addition to his admiration for Schoolboy Q, Ne-Yo had some kind words to say about Ty Dolla $ign. “Ty Dolla $ign is a lot more musically inclined than he lets on. That dude will get on them keys and do something incredible in front of you,” he said. Ne-Yo is also a fan of the music August Alsina and Tinashe are putting out.
