R&B veteran Ne-Yo has released the digital deluxe version of the 2X platinum In My Own Words. In honor of the album’s 15th anniversary the singer song-writer, and TV judge, has some special gems for his day-one fans.
He’s also released a live acoustic performance of the former standout hit single from the project “Sexy Love.” UMe,Def Jam, and Motown are also releasing a documentary about the fifteen years of NE-YO’s life since the groundbreaking album. The documentary touches on his relationship with his wife, performing at George Floyd’s Funeral, and his inspiration for making art.
In Ne-Yo’s Own Words
Before the 2006 release, Ne-Yo made a name in the industry as a writer making hits for people like Rihanna. The debut album represented a departure from behind the curtain and into the spotlight.
Ne-Yo’s lyrics are strictly romantic and sweet throughout every track. The lyrical genius’ soothing melodies make it an easy listen. The re-release is just a reminder of why we started playing Ne-Yo in the first place. In My Own Words put him on the map, and just like the title says, this was the first time Ne-Yo was writing for him, from his own perspective.
The Motown Records/Compound Entertainment recording artist has won three Grammy awards and honored with 14 nominations. The accomplished star has also finished his fourth and final season as a judge on NBC’s “World of Dance.”
His first single, 2005’s “So Sick,” hit No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100, and was certified quadruple Platinum. Since then, he has racked up a collection of hit singles and made his name as one of the 2000’s R&B greats.
