Ne-Yo Wants To Slow It Down In 2013

Will 2013 be the year we take a break from fist-pumping, head knocking, hard rock, and raunchy rap music? According to Ne-Yo, it should be! The R&B hit maker rang in the New Year with MTV’s Club NYE 2013 celebration, sporting a sharp red suit and fedora, and performing his smash dance record “Let Me Love You.” After the festivities, he relayed his hopeful vision for R&B in the New Year. “You know what?” Ne-Yo said, “R&B music. Y’all remember slow jams? I want R&B to make a comeback in 2013 and I’m gonna try and have something to do with that.” Being vice president of A&R at Motown, the smoothest R&B record label out, should help him with his goal. Others contributing to the return of R&B – Tamar Braxton, Ashanti, Akon, Kelly Rowland, and of course Beyonce! Posthumous albums slated for release include Michael Jackson’s “Bad 25,” Teena Marie’s “Beautiful,” and even one from R&B princess, Aaliyah. Sounds like this could be the year of the slow jam!
