Ne-Yo - Year Of The Gentleman

As an accomplished hitmaker for the likes of Rihanna and Beyoncé, we were worried Ne-Yo might have given away his best work to other people.

Luckily though he's saved some choice cuts for his third album, Year Of The Gentleman.

As shown on chart-topping single, Closer , the latest release from the twenty five year old Arkansas native sees him branch out into other genres from his usual brand of laid back R&B, but it's still on slow jams like Mad that he really shines, as it demonstrates his incredible vocal range.

Other highlights include guitar-based anthem, Back To What You Know , the funky Fade Into The Background and New Kids On The Block collaboration, Single .

Track you must download:
Latest single, Miss Independent is an iPod essential, but we've also got a soft spot for the album's fourth track, Mad .

Year Of The Gentleman is out now on Mercury Records.

    I am ADDICTED to this album at the moment and I was hooked from the first listen! Close your eyes and it could be Michael Jackson on most songs! Stand out tracks are Mad, Nobody, Lie To Me and What's The Matter, but I personally think they're all great, apart from 'Why Does She Stay' which I'm surprised made it onto the album as it's quite forgettable. I hope Ne-Yo works on MJ's next album!!
