It's All Good for Ne-Yo (Created 9/19/2013)
It's hard to believe, given his talent level, that it took years for Ne-Yo to break through in the music industry. But when he did, it happened in a big way.
Born Shaffer Chimere Smith, Ne-Yo wasn't the overnight success story he'd wanted to be. Instead he got his foot in the door as a songwriter, had a false-start with a group called Envy, and mostly penned tunes for a plethora of other artists. On the side he recorded his own debut album, but it was never released. It wasn't until late 2004 that the industry started to take notice, as Smith received a co-write credit of Mario's "Let Me Love You."
It was 2006 when Ne-Yo's voice would finally be heard. His official debut project, "In My Own Words," would spawn the No. 1 hit "So Sick," as well as the Top 10 hit "Sexy Love." The sophomore album, "Because of You," dropped the following year and saw the title track climb inside the Top 3. And the ride continued with his third album, "Year of the Gentleman," which contained the Top 10 hits "Closer," "Mad" and "Miss Independent." Album four, "Libra Scale," was a commercial disappointment, but his latest project, "R.E.D." achieved more moderate success.
Ne-Yo has written song for everyone from Mary J. Blige and Beyonce Knowles to Cheryl Cole and Willow Smith. He also announced several months ago that he and Cher Lloyd are to collaborate on a new Futtare song called "It's All Good."
Most recently Ne-Yo traveled to Barbados to headline CHUM FM Toronto's annual "Breakfast in Barbados" concert.
