A record written by R&B singer Ne-Yo for Latin sensation Shakira leaked on the internet last month, which stirred up some rumors about Ne-Yoâs sexuality. âForbidden Fruit,â which was supposed to be a collaboration between the two stars, is said to have questionable lyrics from a maleâs perspective. Rap-Up.com spoke exclusively with the hitmaker who set the record straight: âI wrote that for her. She wound up not taking it. A lot of these songs that wind up on the Internet, people donât get the back story and then it just sounds weird. You have me singing a song and Iâm saying âheâ a lot, and nobody makes the assumption that Iâm a songwriter and I do write songs for women every now and then. People donât gather that so then they go, âOh, what is this? What is Ne-Yo doing? Is he trying to tell us something?â No, Iâm not trying to tell you anything. You shouldnât have downloaded the song, pirates!â I guess he told you!
