RnB but a new sound
He reminds us that R&B does still exists …. It just has a new sound
When most of us think about R&B, we think of OG artists such as May J. Blige, Jagged Edge, Usher, or 112. Generations today might say R&B doesn’t exist anymore, or it’s questionable about where R&B is headed, but Ne-Yo thinks it’s headed in a great direction. “Artists like Daniel Ceasar, and PARTYNEXTDOOR are today’s R&B,” said Ne-Yo. “They’re soulful, but they have the sound that this new generation loves. That’s why I chose to put artists like them on this album.”
He gave his female fans music they’re guaranteed to love
“Mirror” and “Say It” are two of Ne-Yo’s most popular slow jams. If you’re hoping for another song that reminds you of those, you’ll be more than satisfied. His newest slow song, “Breathe,” offers the same energy, sound, and feelings as his previous hits.
