He may not be their biggest draw, but Def Jam should award Ne-Yo a lifetime contract to do whatever the eff he pleases. Always keeping his name in his labelmates’ album credits while still keeping a couple hits for himself. Every time he’s set to release an album, it’s usually the same song-and-dance. Dangerously walking the plank of the endangered R&B species and overpopulated Pop waters, and his lead off singles are always dazzling and over-the-top.
“Beautiful Monster” from the crooner’s fourth album, Libra Scale is no different. On first listen, you may deem it (ahem) too flamboyant for your tastes but once you meet that creature with this song playing in the background, I’m sure you won’t mind too much.
