Early this week, news spread like wild fire on the net, after R&B singer Ne-Yo was allegedly quoted saying he regrets giving the hit single âIrreplaceableâ to Beyonce.
âOne song that I gave away and didnât want to is Beyonceâs Irreplaceable. I honestly wrote that song for myself. But that song actually taught me a very interesting lesson â men and women donât actually think that much differently in the grand scheme of things,â Ne-Yo was quoted telling London radio station Choice FM. âHowever, a man singing it comes across a little bit misogynistic, a little bit mean.â
But the âOne in a Millionâ hitmaker says he was misquoted, crying foul via Twitter.
âOk. Whatâs this I hear about me wishing I never gave Beyonceâ Irreplaceable? Yâall ACTUALLY believe I said that? SERIOUSLY? Wow. Aiight,â Ne-Yo says. âBelieving everything you read is just as bad as letting somebody run you. Stop letting these media haters and bloggers control yâall. You wanna know âbout me? ASK ME. You wanna know if I said somethinâ ASK ME. Câmon yâall. I KNOW youâre smarter than that.â
Seeing that âIrreplaceableâ made Ne-Yo millions of dollars, I doubt thatâs what he meant. Like all other songwriters, Iâm sure he wants Beyonce to record all his songs.
