Ne-Yo is moving his talents over to Motown Records, in more ways than one. While he will release his upcoming album under the label, Ne-Yo will serve as Vice President of A&R as well.
In an exclusive announcement to Billboard, Ethiopia Habtemariam Senior VP of Motown spoke on the move, “In Ne-Yo we have both a global superstar and arguably one of the best songwriters in music. His presence on the executive team only strengthens our commitment to be the very best in R&B.”
Ne-Yo added, “I’m honored that I¹ve been given such a prestigious title and trusted with such responsibility; terrified because I know that playing this role in the fashion of one of my career role models, Mr. Smokey Robinson — these are big shoes to fill. But trust, I can handle it.”
