Ne-Yo (born Shaffer Chimere Smith 18.10.1979)
Ne-Yo is an American R&B performer, of Afro-Asian descent.
Music Career: In 2006, Ne-Yo released his debut album on Def Jam Recordings. Entitled In My Own Words, the album went straight to Number One in the Billboard 200 album charts. It has been certified platinum and has sold over four million copies across the world.
The Stargate-produced second single, 'So Sick' also reached the top of the singles chart, the same week that the album hit the top spot.
Ne-Yo's second studio album, Because of You, was released in May 2007. Since releasing the album, Ne-Yo has been approached to work on material for Michael Jackson's new album, alongside will.i.am of the Black Eyed Peas.
Ne-Yo has written songs for a large number of successful American artists such as 'Unfaithful' and 'Take A Bow', for Rihanna, 'Gallery' for Mario Vasquez and Beyonce Knowles' 'Irreplaceable.' Ne-Yo has also penned songs for Britney Spears, Whitney Houston and Celine Dion. It has also been reported that he has written songs for Lindsay Lohan's debut musical venture. Additionally, it has been suggested that Ne-Yo will work with Marilyn Manson.
Ne-Yo was chosen to perform the national anthem of the USA, 'The Star-Spangled Banner' at the Special NFL match held at Wembley Stadium, between San Diego Chargers and New Orleans Saints.
The artist's third album is entitled Year of the Gentleman and is said to be a backlash against what he perceives to the 'sloppiness' of current R&B music. The album is influenced by songwriters such as John Lennon and Sir Paul McCartney as well as Marvin Gaye and Michael Jackson. In terms of style, Ne-Yo has drawn influence from the Rat Pack members such as Sammy Davis Jr. and Frank Sinatra.
Personal Life: In February 2008, Ne-Yo was arrested for reckless driving in Georgia. When caught, he had been driving without a license, at over 100 miles per hour, at least 50 miles per hour over the speed limit. In June of the same year, he was sentenced to 24 hours community service. As part of the sentence, Ne-Yo must also perform for the Boys and Girls Club, as well as attending a defensive driving class, and paying a fine of $1000.
The rapper and the model tied the knot in front of family and friends in Los Angeles on Saturday.
Ne-Yo and fiancée Crystal Renay have finally tied the knot, just weeks before they are due to welcome their first child together. According to People, the wedding took place on Saturday (February 20th) in front of family and friends on at the Terranea Resort in Rancho Palos Verdes, near Los Angeles.
Ne-Yo has tied the knot with fiancée Crystal Renay.
"We can't wait to start our life together,” the ‘Money Can't Buy’ singer told the magazine. "We're looking forward to just being each others' best friend." The couple began dating in 2015 after meeting to set-up a possible collaboration for his album Non-Fiction.

Unsurprisingly, it was Kanye West who landed the coveted Visionary Award at the event which he attended alongside his reality star wife Kim Kardashian. While the multi-Platinum rapper may be one of the best modern popstars, having released his sixth consecutive number one album 'Yeezus' two years ago, he's hardly going to win any prizes for modesty. Despite himself, he quipped to the audience upon receiving his award, 'I understand what it is to be humbled for the first time'.

OK, so the majority of the US public have just one race on their minds today and that’s the US Presidential race. But once that’s been decided in a few hours, all thoughts will surely be turning to the all-important albums chart race… surely? Can any of this week’s releases threaten Taylor Swift’s position at the top or will she get a second term at number one?
Aerosmith have returned, after an 11-year hiatus from writing any new material. Time appears to have stood still on Aerosmith-land in those eleven years and Music From Another Dimension is pretty much as you would expect an Aerosmith album to sound. Of course, Steven Tyler’s presence on American Idol has brought the attention of Aerosmith back to a new generation of fans, so much of this material may well even sound fresh to them.
During WWII, black pilots trained in Tuskegee, Alabama, were sidelined in the segregated US forces. But Colonel Ballard (Howard) gets them an assignment accompanying bombers on raids in Italy. Led by Major Stance (Gooding), the team includes hot-shot Lightning (Oyelowo), self-doubting Easy (Parker), eager Junior (Wilds) and the even less-defined Smoky (Ne-Yo) and Joker (Kelley). As they square off against their Luftwaffe nemesis (van Riesen), the Tuskegee airmen's distinctive red-tailed planes develop a first-rate reputation that begins to break down racial barriers.
