Ne-Yo: Beyoncé Headed in ‘Another Direction’ on New Album

Ne-Yo and Beyoncé

Ne-Yo has had a longstanding relationship with Beyoncé, having penned one of the biggest hits of her career, “Irreplaceable.” But after missing out on her last album I Am… Sasha Fierce, the singer-songwriter is back in the studio, working on B’s upcoming fourth solo release.

“It’s coming along nicely. I can’t speak too much on it, but it’s another direction for her, and she’s carving out her own niche,” he told Access Atlanta. “In a minute nobody will be in Beyoncé’s lane. They really can’t get in her lane now, but they really can’t get in her lane after this album.”

Mrs. Carter may be enjoying life at home with Jay-Z, but she appears eager to return to the lab. Jim Jonsin hinted that he might be getting back in the booth with B after sending her some music to listen to. “She may be recording, she may not,” the “Sweet Dreams” producer told Rap-Up TV in May.

Aside from his production and writing career, Ne-Yo is currently focused on his fourth album, Libra Scale. The LP, delayed to an October 19 release date, has already spawned the singles “One in a Million,” “Champagne Life,” and “Beautiful Monster.”

    I enjoy Ne-Yo, I really do. But I’m worried that he won’t give Beyonce fresh, innovative material. Look how many “Irreplaceable” derivatives he came up with after that song hit.

    OMG!!
    Guys,let’s face this.. Rihanna,Beyonce,Gaga etc.. are not same!!!Deal with it…
    You don’t have to write bout Rihanna and Gaga when theme is Beyonce… and opposite..
    They are competition to each other,they all wanna make number one songs…and have success… But if u like Bey,u don’t have to call Rihanna a bitch,and slut..just cause she is competition to B… (and opposite :D ) They all have their style,and they r all special on their own way…

    I see why the haterz get their panties in a knot when they see Bey is coming back….when she is in the game, NO ONE can beat her. Only when she steps aside for some rest can they even be on the radar. Bey wins everything and leaves scraps for all these hoes…All the wannabes, LOOK OUT, you’re going back to where you all belong, in the dumper.

    She will release fours songs in one day. Four music videos in one day. Have commercials all over the place, show up at every high profile red carpet event. Oh and she will still be gyrating and coochie popping in our faces. She is not going to change.

    So to all the beyonce haters whether you like her or not her accomplishments speak for theirselves…I won’t list all of them but 16 Grammys(#3 behind one Aretha and Allison somebody for female artist) Grammys aren’t just past out, they are awards that your peers decide to honor you with…and if you listen nobody ever has anything bad to say about her other than fans that don’t like her…people are gonna like who they like and it just happens that a majority of the world likes beyonce more than other people
