Set to deliver a series of songs via her new #TuneInTuesdays series, the Compound U artist and protégé of Ne-Yo, drops off the first installment today. Titled “Everybody Loves,” Candice lays it down as she remakes Ne-Yo’s song of the same name, from his latest album Non-Fiction.

Album Review: Ne-Yo – ‘Non-Fiction’

Ne-Yo Non-Fiction Album

Ne-Yo has long been lauded as one of the industry’s most successful songwriters. Penning female-centric anthems for the likes of Beyoncé (“Irreplaceable”) and Rihanna (“Take A Bow”) the 32-year-old has illustrated his knack for understanding the point of view of the woman. As a solo artist with hit records of his own, the singer has often used the woman as his lyrical muse, whether mourning how she broke his heart (“So Sick”) or celebrating her independence (“Miss Independent”).

With his sixth studio album, Non-Fiction, Ne-Yo continues this musical trend, touring through the highs and lows of being a man with a healthy appetite for chicks. Characterizing the project as a true story inspired by real people and just so happens to be “complete fiction,” Ne-Yo explores the woman, love and sex through various vantage points.

New Music: Ne-Yo – Body On You + Worth It (Bonus Tracks)

Ne-Yo Non-Fiction Album

Ne-Yo released his anticipated sixth studio album Non-Fiction this past Tuesday and has been hitting the promo circuit heavy.  The album, like most, comes in both a standard and a deluxe edition, however this deluxe edition packs a lot more content with 7 additional songs and hidden interludes.  But, the international deluxe edition boasts two separate bonus tracks which didn’t make the U.S. version.

On “Body On You” the R&B gentleman admits to doing some mild Instagram stalking and playfully propositions a new girl to let him get a taste.

On “Worth It,” Ne-Yo tells the story of a young lady looking for a Prince Charming but needs to prove it’s really real love that she wants. “You want a king, than you gotta show a king a queen,” he sings.

Take a listen to both tracks below, and pick up Ne-Yo’s new album on iTunes now!
