Album Cover: Ne-Yo – ‘Libra Scale’

Ne-Yo is suited up for action on the cover of his storybook-themed fourth album Libra Scale. Wearing a fedora and a sharp ensemble, the singer-songwriter poses atop a high-rise building in front of a group of assassins, prepped for war behind their fearless leader.

The project, due in stores October 19 (the day after his 31st birthday), has already spawned the tracks “Beautiful Monster,” “One Life,” and “One in a Million,” with “Monster” and “Champagne Life” receiving mini-movies.

“The songs on the album are all songs inspired by this story I wrote,” the father-to-be previously 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?”
