We’ve been hearing him say it for a little while now, and many fans are hoping for Ne-Yo to return to R&B on his upcoming sixth studio album. While, we didn’t want to count on it completely, following the release of his ‘3 Simple Rules‘ EP on Valentine’s Day, we are getting much more excited for what the singer/songwriter has in store.
“As of right this second my main focus is my new album,” Ne-Yo recently told Billboard’s The Juice. “It’ll be out probably towards the summertime, predominately R&B this time. I had a little stint with the dance music and all of that, which I had a good time with– and I love the audience, I love them for accepting me doing it –but I had to go home on this one. Had to take it back to my roots, and not to say that there won’t be one, maybe two songs on there that the dance crowd can get into, but the majority, the girth of the album, will be R&B.”
