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, Rap-Up.com 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.
