Following the huge success of ‘Let Me Love You (Until You Learn to Love Yourself)’ Ne-Yo is back with his second single ‘Forever Now’ from his fifth studio album R.E.D.
R.E.D. is Ne-Yo’s first album for Motown and the first single ‘Let Me Love You (Until You Learn To Love Yourself) saw Ne-Yo bag not only his fourth solo UK #1 but also Motown’s first #1 single in 20 years. R.E.D.’s title is an acronym for Realizing Every Dream.
The title, said NE-YO, “came from me stepping outside myself, looking at my life as it is today and realizing that every dream I’ve had from the day I decided I wanted to do music, every dream that I’ve had from then til now, I’m definitely on the way to realizing it.” In January 2012, NE-YO was also named Senior Vice President of A&R for the legendary label.
Other highlights from R.E.D. include “Unconditional” and “Jealous” (both produced by Phat Boize), “Don't Make Em Like You” feat. Wiz Khalifa and “She Is”, a ballad with “a country feel but is still in my world too. The good Lord willing, Tim McGraw will get on the radio with a remix and we’ll perform it at the Country music awards one day. Another dream. Another goal.”
