Ne-Yo Shifts ‘Libra Scale’ Release Date


Ne-Yo will have to wait to tell his story. The R&B crooner’s storybook-themed album Libra Scale has been pushed back a couple weeks.

The Grammy-winning singer-songwriter’s fourth studio effort will now arrive at retailers on October 19, a day after his 31st birthday, has learned. It was previously scheduled to drop two weeks earlier on October 5.

The sci-fi-influenced album was inspired by Ne-Yo’s passion for acting. “The songs on the album are all songs inspired by this story I wrote,” he told Rap-Up TV. “Libra Scale is a question of morality. Weighed out on a libra scale, if you had to choose between money, power, fame, or love, which one would you put the most value on? Which one would prevail in your life?”

The father-to-be is riding on the current success of his dance single “Beautiful Monster,” which hit No. 1 in the U.K. His follow-up single, the inspirational “One Life,” surfaced last week.

    So are we not to expect ANY albums to be delivered when they’re initially announced anymore? Not that I was anticipating this one but it just seems this happens all too often. Interesting.

    man, this has to be like the upteenth album that’s been pushed back. but with all do respect to Ne-Yo i wasn’t really gonna buy it though, it doesn’t seem as good as the other ones. I do like Ne-Yo but I like his other singles WAY better than the two from this album.

    It’s not surprise, cause neither of his singles did good. He needs to get off this techno/house sh!t. I liked Ne-Yo back when he did So Sick, Sexy Love, Because Of You, those songs were my gas, he don’t do stuff like that no more

    You have got to be kidding me. Ne-Yo is one of the handful of artists who has consistently and progressively been getting better. Year of the Gentleman has got to be one of the most underrated R&B albums ever, great from beginning to end. STOP LISTENING TO JUST THE SINGLES. I WISH ARTISTS WOULD NOT PERFORM SINGLES AT CONCERTS. Either that, or keep listening to that wack ass Trey Songs. And thats the truth.
