The Highchair: NE-YO

Mostly of my post here in the Highchair are bands, well for a change and to give opportunities to our Black People, cause Black is in right now (thanks to Obama).


Presenting on our Highchair: NE-YO! clap! clap! clap! There are a lot to celebrate to this kid from Arkansas

A Grammy Award Winning singer-songwriter, born Shaffer Chimere Smith, he called himself on stage NE-YO.

He is also known for co-writing Mario’s 2004 #1 hit, “Let Me Love You”. Def Jam Records released, “Stay” (featuring Peedi Crakk) as the debut single in 2005 (Last.Fm)

Ne-Yo emerged into the recording industry with the Las Vegas-based quartet Envy. After the group disbanded in 2000, Ne-Yo was signed to Columbia Records, but, after recording his first album, was dropped from the label before he could even release it. As his career failed, American singer Marques Houston happened to hear one of Ne-Yo’s tracks, “That Girl”, which was supposed to be the latter’s debut single off his then-unreleased album. Houston instead rerecorded “That Girl” and released it as a single to his 2003 album MH. The release of the song led to Ne-Yo being recognized as a songwriter; thereafter, he began writing songs for other artists (Wikis).

He released 3 albums already and a role on 2 movies last 2007
