“Beautiful Monster,” Ne-Yo’s first major single release in more than a year and a half, is also the first early warning shot from his upcoming new album. Untitled as of this writing, it will be his first long-player since the RIAA platinum Year Of The Gentleman debuted at #1 on the Soundscan and UK national charts in September 2008. That album spun off the triumvirate of consecutive RIAA platinum hits above:“Closer,” “Miss Independent,” and “Mad.”
Year Of The Gentleman went on to generate a league-leading total of five Grammy Award nominations in 2009 – with “Miss Independent” winning for Best R&B Song (songwriters award) and Best Male R&B Vocal Performance. Year Of The Gentleman followed up Because Of You (released May 2007), which won the Grammy Award for Best Contemporary R&B Album, and In My Own Words (February2006) – both of which debuted at #1 on the Billboard 200 and R&B/Hip-Hop Albums charts.
Ne-Yo, two-time BET Award-winning Best Male R&B Artist, founded The Compound Foundation which is committed to service at-risk and disadvantaged youth. The Compound Foundation sponsors performances, motivational speakers and mentorship opportunities with leaders and business people within the community.
