Ne-Yo won’t be celebrating his album release on his birthday after all. The R&B crooner has pushed back its release by one month so he can fine tune the project.
Libra Scale, the gentleman’s fourth effort, has a revised drop date of November 22, which is the Monday before the traditional Tuesday release. This is typically when the year’s biggest projects are released, with albums from Nicki Minaj, Akon, and Lloyd Banks expected to arrive the same week. The concept album was originally set for September and then moved to October 19 to coincide with his 31st birthday.
The father-to-be has booked several high-profile TV appearances to promote Libra Scale including “Dancing with the Stars” (10/5), “The Late Show with David Letterman” (10/11), and the American Music Awards (11/21).
His single “Champagne Life” is currently No. 16 on the Billboard R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart. A video for the third offering “One in a Million” premiered earlier this month.
