As Ne-Yo gets ready to release a new album with Motown Records, the Grammy-winning R&B singer will also be serving as the company's senior vice president of A&R, Motown said in a statement Wednesday.
In that position, the 29-year-old singer will scout for new names to sign and serve as a producer and mentor for Motown's stable of talent. Ne-Yo's fifth studio album is expected to arrive from Motown this summer.
"I'm a combination of excited, honored and terrified all at once!" Ne-Yo says in the statement. "Excited about a new beginning here at Motown, honored that I've been given such a prestigious title and trusted with such responsibility, [and] TERRIFIED because I know that playing this role, in the fashion of one of my idols and my career role models, Mr. Smokey Robinson, these are big shoes to fill...but trust, I can handle it."
To top it off, the singer has also signed up for "The Voice," and will serve as a mentor for Cee Lo Green's picks on the NBC singing competition show.
I'm glad he is served as Senior Vice President of A&R of the label. Thanks Motown for offering Ne-Yo that position.
Wonderful news... but he's not 29. He's 31. His real age was revealed a long time ago.
Actually, he's 32.
Congratulations Neyo, You desire it. I love your music and most of all your extraordinary song writing capabilities. Motown has made an excellent choice. I can't wait to see what will come from this pairing.
So proud of you......great example of what to do with your God-given talents besides throwing it away on frivolous things. Young entertainers...pay attention.
He is 'The One' to free us from the May-trix
Didn't they have enough of men like this with Michael's doctor? Ne-Yo's interview on a nighshow newscast gave me the impression that he would sell his Mom to the town rapist for a dollar. Let's hope that I got th3 wrong impression.
A little humbleness goes a long way Ne-Yo,you're no Smokey Robinson.
