180pxin_my_own_words_neyoThere are radio reports that R&B chart topper Ne-Yo will come out in the October issue of ESSENCE Magazine.

Ne-Yo is currently signed to Def Jam Records. He co-wrote Mario’s 2004 number one hit "Let Me Love You" before he began a recording career of his own in 2005. Ne-Yo’s debut album, In My Own Words, was released in early 2006 and debuted at number one on The Billboard 200, selling 301,000 copies in the first week. During the same period, Ne-Yo’s second single "So Sick" became the number one song on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. Ne-Yo also wrote Rihanna’s Top 10 hit, "Unfaithful". Recently he was featured on Ghostface’s single "Back Like That".

Now this could be gossip or it could be true.  I guess we’ll have to wait until mid-September when the October edition of ESSENCE hist stands. I’ll see what else I can find out.

Thanks for the tip Jerry!
