Music News: Ne-Yo Slams Hackers For Album Leak

A frustrated Ne-Yo has hit out at internet hackers, after learning that his fourth studio album ‘Libra Scale’ has leaked more than 3 weeks before its Stateside or international release.

His comments after the jump…


Speaking on Twitter moments ago, the singer/songwriter, 31, said:

Salutations all. I’m in japan and my album officially came out today out here. Today is a day that I SHOULD be very happy, but it has been brought to my attention that my album was hacked and leaked in the U.S. roughly a month before it’s U.S. release.

Initially this angered me. It’s stealing plain n’ simple. But then I started thinking. Why do I make music….? To sell records, make money, or is it because I love it, love how it touches people, how it helps people? The honest answer is both…

However, my love for music and it’s effect on people, outweighs my desire to simply sell records, or get that number one debut spot.

In a time where people buy their status and falsify their success, can those things really be that important to me? The answer is no.

So with that said, I’ve come to this place of mental peace. No longer stressing people that steal the music, how it’ll effect my sales. The bottom line is, I worked hard on this project. The music, the concept, the whole lot is for the people, respect or not.

So if you as a fan give a damn about me, buy the album when it comes out. If you don’t care, go get it off the internet. Your choice.

Ether way, the music, the concept, the whole lot, served it’s purpose. It gave the people something quality to vibe to. I’m not solely in the business of selling records. I’m in the business of making art. That’s what an artist does, period.

So with that twit fam and haters alike, I bid you farewell for now, and leave you with this….

I’LL BE DAMNED IF YOU HACKER FUCKS GET MY NEXT ALBUM BEFORE IT’S TIME!!! FUCK YOU ALL!!!! Have a nice day.

“WOW!!”

Music News: R&B singer Ne-Yo Expecting First Child

https://i2.wp.com/www.freeonlinemovieworld.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/06/ne-yo-monyetta-shaw-expecting-a-baby.jpgR&B crooner Ne-Yo is trading sold-out concerts for diaper duty!

Both Monyetta Shaw and Ne-Yo have been dating for a while now and are now very happy with the news that Shaw is pregnant. Rumor has it that she’s been wanting a child for a long time now.

They are very excited to know whether they are going to have baby boy or baby girl.

The “Miss Independent” singer tells Ebony Magazine he is expecting his first child. He tells the magazine that he recently flew home to Atlanta to be with his girlfriend during her first ultrasound.

“I am 30 and I do have my first child on the way, and I am very, very, very excited about that,” Ne-Yo says, joking that his firstborn will be “stubborn.”

His girlfriend, actress Monyetta Shaw, is due to give birth in early January 2011.

“It’s a New Year’s baby,” Ne-Yo — whose new album, ‘Libra Scale’  is set for Sept. 21 release — tells the magazine. “I’m just in a really good place right now.”

Although this is his first child, Ne-Yo did get tangled in some baby drama back in 2005 when his then-girlfriend. Ne-Yo had relationship with his ex-girl friend and she gave a birth to baby boy, naming him Chimere after Ne-Yo’s middle name.  Later, that was stunning news that he is not the father of that baby boy. This caused them to split there after. He is now in litigation with the child’s mother.

“I’m not allowed to talk about it, and I’m not allowed to see [Chimere],” Ne-Yo told USA Today in 2008.

The R&B singer is most recognizable for his appearance on 50 Cent‘s 2009 hit, ‘Baby By Me.’
