Ne-Yo Because of You Review

Wednesday, May 30, 2007

Normally an artist's second CD doesn't live up to their debut, but in this case it surpasses it. Ne-Yo is not only a great songwriter, but he's proven that as an artist he has staying power with the release of "Because of You."

Each song from track 1 to track 12 tells a story and that's why his songs are appealing to me as a listener. He has two collaborations on the CD: Crazy with Jay-Z and Leaving Tonight with Jennifer Hudson. I personally loved Leaving Tonight. It's a great duet and I would love to see it released as a single.

Besides Leaving Tonight, I listen to these songs over and over: Because of You, Can We Chill, Do You, Ain't Thinking About You, and Say It.

You can tell who his influences are but it doesn't take away from enjoying Ne-Yo.

"Because of You" is Ne-Yo's love letter to his fans and listeners shouldn't be disappointed if they want a CD that contains great lyrics and music. ~ Shelia M.
