The wait for Ne-Yo’s follow up to “Year of the Gentleman” may be slightly extended thanks to a host of forthcoming albums from Jennifer Hudson, Kelly Rowland and Rihanna. “Iâm still writing for a bunch of people,” Ne-Yo told VIBE of his busy schedule over the next few weeks recently. “I have Jennifer Hudson on the way; Iâm doing quite a few songs with her. Iâm doing some more stuff for Rihanna real soon. Then thereâs Nicole Scherzinger and thereâs this group out of the UK called the Noisettes who are really good. I also did some stuff for Justin Bieber and Kelly Rowland.” In addition to those efforts and his own, Ne-Yo is readying releases from his roster of talent, including Jadyn Maria. “I have my own artists who slowly but surely Iâm putting their projects together,” Ne-Yo went on to say. “Then thereâs my album. Iâm really on my grind.” As previously reported, Ne-Yo’s next album is slated for release this August with two films nearing release, including ‘Red Tails’ with Cuba Gooding Jr and Terrence Howard.
