Ne-Yo, where have you been all year? Obviously back in the studio whipping up more "Closer"-esque dance floor classics, that's where. The Grammy-winning singer/songwriter/producer extraordinaire -- who's created some of my favorite anthems, from Rihanna's "Take a Bow" to Beyonce's "Irreplaceable" to his own string of landslide smashes -- just dropped "Beautiful Monster," the first single of his anticipated (especially by me!) fourth album, set for release Sept. 21.
Produced by Stargate -- the same crew who did "Closer," "Because Of You," "Miss Independent" and "Mad" with the singer -- the track is perfect to get things shaking for the summer. I'm so glad it dropped right before Memorial Day Weekend. What a gift, but I'm already so excited for Fall!
