A new Ne-Yo track features the singer channeling his pop side with this uptempo track that sounds great and polished overall, but lacks a certain something. Perhaps that's why it was unreleased? No official word on if this is a single but give it a shot. I liked the first half of the track especially.
Exciting news for TLC fans! Chilli & T-Boz are planning new collabs with Drake, Ne-Yo, & J. Cole as they told Entertainment Weekly they're all planning on going to the studio. The music will likely coincide with the release of their summer biopic on VH1 — starring Drew Sidora, Keke Palmer, & Lil Mama as TLC — Crazy Sexy Cool: The TLC Story. Plus, TLC will be performing on July 27th as part of the two-day Mixtape Festival in Hershey, PA. Lots of great tidbits and, I think it's safe to say that many of us will lend an ear to new TLC this summer!
"Everybody has shown us love. Not one person has said 'No,' and that’s amazing. So we’re just going to go in and demo and demo and figure it out. I talked to Dallas [Austin] today, we’re Skyping to see if I want to do this song that he has. I just left the studio last night. I go in again tomorrow."
Last night SNL saw Jamie Foxx hosting and Ne-Yo as the musical guest, and it was a safe bet that Foxx was gonna get in on the live tunes as well. He did just that by performing "Birthday Song" with 2 Chainz in the monologue above, while Ne-Yo performed "Let Me Love You" (of course) and "She Is" below. Were there any good skits last night? Might have to jump on Hulu and find out later today.
Last night, the Soul Train Awards aired on BET and performances came from the likes of John Legend, 2 Chainz, Miguel, Ne-Yo, Keyshia Cole, TGT, and Elle Varner. You can watch and/or re-live the performances above and below as G.O.O.D. Music kicks it off with Legend's "Tonight (Best I Ever Had)" and then 2 Chainz right under with "Birthday Song", "I'm Different", and "Ghetto Dreams". Then there's Miguel with "Adorn", Ne-Yo "Let Me Love You", Keyshia Cole "Trust & Believe" and "Enough Of No Love", TGT (Tank, Ginuwine, & Tyrese) with "Stay", "If You're Lonely", and "Zoom", and finally, Elle Varner with "Refill". Enjoy!
