Multi-platinum, three-time Grammy Award-winning Def Jam recording artist Ne-Yo returns to the world stage with his brand-new album, R.E.D including the first single Let Me Love You (Until You Learn to Love Yourself).

Ne-Yo has dedicated the past year to writing and collaborating with some of the world’s most successful artists.

He featured on the Calvin Harris Summer smash-hit Let’s Go.

Ne-Yo was also inducted into the song-writing Hall of Fame as a result of his work with R&B and soul legends Celine Dion, Mary J. Blige, Usher, Kanye West, Lionel Richie, Beyonce and Rihanna.

Let’s Go, from Ne-Yo’s upcoming R.E.D album debuted at #2 on the UK Singles chart and is still in the Top 10 in the UK’s radio airplay chart.

It is of no surprise that his solo work has seen over 8 million albums and 23 million singles sold worldwide. Having also sold over 1 million albums in the UK and over 2 million singles, the release of R.E.D. will undoubtedly cement Ne-Yo as a heavyweight in the R&B and pop world.

As a precursor to his R.E.D. campaign in the UK, Ne-Yo released his sultry single Lazy Love to US Urban radio last month.
