Having already released four studio albums including the most recent Passion, Pain & Pleasure, winning the prestigious title of “Best Male R&B Artist” at the 2010 BET Awards and starring in his own hit TV show ‘My Moment’ on BET, Trey Songz is more than ready to claim his place in the pantheon of R&B greats.
These dates mark the first opportunity for UK fans to see Ne-Yo since his show stopping performances in the UK in 2009. The dates follow the release of Ne-Yo’s fourth studio album the impressive ‘Libra Scale’ which was released on 1 November and includes the smash hit singles “Beautiful Monster”, which reached No.1 in the UK charts, “Champagne Life” and “One in a Million” which is currently soaring through the charts.
Having started out his career as a songwriter, with past successes including “Let Me Love You” written for Mario, Ne-Yo was signed to Def Jam by LA Reid. His debut album ‘In My Own Words’ was released in 2006 and went straight in at number one in the US with hit single “So Sick”. Success followed with the release of ‘Because of You’ in 2007 which also topped the US charts while his third studio album ‘Year of the Gentleman’ released 2008 produced massive singles including “Closer” and “Miss Independent” and earned Ne-Yo four Grammy nominations. With collaborations with the likes of Beyonce, Rihanna and Leona Lewis, Ne-Yo has also won two MOBO’s and been nominated for two Video Music Awards.
