Biography

Three-time Grammy Award®-winning artist Ne-Yo was explaining the genesis of his new album title, R.E.D., an acronym for Realizing Every Dream. “It 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, that I wanted my life to be about music, every dream that I’ve had ...

Product Description

Product Description

A follow on to his multi-million selling debut album In My Own Words (including the hits So Sick and Sexy Love.

Last year, Ne-Yo also proved himself a masterful songwriter penning such gems as Rihanna's top-ten hit "Unfaithful" and co-writing Beyonce's instant classic "Irreplaceable." That track was on the Billboard Hot 100 number-one single for ten weeks. And all this on top of having written Mario's Let Me Love You - a UK #1 for five weeks...

Amazon.co.uk

Kelly Clarkson, kindly step aside: the title "Because of You" now belongs to Ne-Yo, who has done things with it no one with a pair of hands to clap will soon forget. And not just on the phenomenally appealing first single. Throughout Because of You, the sophomore disc by the songwriter responsible for such monster hits as Beyoncé's "Irreplaceable" and Rihanna's "Unfaithful," a flutter-voiced fluidity--the kind seldom heard since Michael Jackson's Off the Wall days--reigns. Jay-Z makes room to let it rip on "Crazy," and Jennifer Hudson wraps herself around it with restraint on "Leaving Tonight," a lovers' quarrel that could hold its own against anything Marilyn McCoo & Billy David Jr. cared to toss off in their heyday. If it's MJ who's lingered in Ne-Yo's ear longest, Prince hasn't gone silent, either: echoes poke up on the far-out "Sex with My Ex." Elsewhere, shades of contemporaries such as Nelly and Diddy show through. Overall, though, Ne-Yo's flammable hooks, flirty vibe, and flawless vocals reveal an R&B genius in the making. If the talent bar for up-and-comers is set impossibly high in the coming years, chances are it will be all because of him. --Tammy La Gorce

Better late than never sometimes.

This one nearly slipped by me truth be told.

It was a chance hearing of Rihanna's duet (Hate That I Love You)
with this young man which made me sit up and take notice.

'Because Of You' is a joyous little masterclass in what it
remains possible to create within R&B's parameters when a great
young singer-songwriter joins hands with a world-class production team.

Mr Smith and The Carter Administration have every reason to be proud.

The thirteen songs delivered here add up to an almost flawless
lexicon of genre-defining beauty.

Hard to direct you towards highlights with such rich pickings on offer.

Opener 'Because Of You' is a loose-limbed, cute-as-could-be winner.
Killer melody. Killer hook. Killer vocal. Killer harmonies. Got that?!

'Crazy', a limpid, sassy stroll through more strong melodic territory,
neither helped nor hindered by Mr Jay-Z's presence.
The out of kilter pizzicato synth is an absolute hoot !

'Can We Chill', another superb song which had me thinking about Little Stevie.
Mr Smith's high, flexible tenor and juicy falsetto is a rare
and wonderful instrument.

'Do You', brought Mr Wonder to mind once more but trust me that's
no bad thing !

'Addicted', a loping, harder-edged number whose punchy brass arrangement
steers our hero into a somewhat darker landscape.

'Leaving Tonight' brings Mr Smith and Ms Hudson together in a perfect
example of what a great duet can be with ingredients as highly charged
as these. Two wonderful voices. One terrific song. Ecstatic.

Being a big Ne-Yo fan, I bought this album and have heard it through several times now. Ive come to the same conclusion about Because Of You as I did his first album- a handful of great songs, and a handful of others that shouldn't be on the same CD. The best songs on this album for me are "Because Of You", "Can We Chill", "Do You", "Angel" and my personal favorite on this cd, "Go On Girl". The others I found a bit disappointing to be honest, and most importantly Ne-Yo has done some great work with other artists recently, such as "Hate That I Love You" with Rhianna and "Made It Better" with Fabulous- where are these on this album?! In writing "Irreplacable" for Beyonce, Ne-Yo has his own version of this song which again isn't on the album! The song he has with Jay-z on the album is also far too short and not too appealing.

I would only advise buying this album if you are like myself, a big fan of Ne-Yo's music. Otherwise, probs better to stick to the singles- some of which are not even on this CD.

Well what can I say? I eagerly waited for this album for months and again this has not come out of my cd player for the last couple of months! My favourite tune on this one is Because of You as it has such a catchy beat which puts a smile on my face everytime i hear it!
Here's hoping the next album is another hit - as for definiate I will be buying it regardless.

Because of you
Crazy
Can we chill
Do you
Addicted
Leaving tonight
Ain't thinking bout you
Sex with my ex
Angel
Make it work
Go on girl
Say it
As you can see most of the songs i like apart from that's what it does. I do really like this album but it is missing a certain something. I can't wait 4 his new album year of the gentleman,i think this album is going to be his best yet. I also felt the same with rihanna's albums, her first album was great but her second one wasn't as good, but her third one was her best. I still feel you need this album in your record collection.

My Wife's new favourite Soul/R&B singer! A great voice, and none of the controversy that seems to surround far less talented singers.

Prepare a nice meal, get your special someone a glass of wine and watch them melt to the sound of this young mans music.

This was for my daughter's birthday and she was delighted with it. Unfortunately the first item sent was not Ne Yo "Because of You" but a Charles Bronson DVD. But to be fair, this was exchanged without any problem.
