Ne-Yo‘s new album The Year of the Gentleman was certainly written for the ladies… and let me tell you, chivalry is CERTAINLY NOT DEAD! He may have penned songs for everybody from Beyonce[Irreplacable] to Rihanna[Hate that I Love You] but this album is ALL him and I must say he does get pretty personal. He sings about missing out on a woman who gets married before he has the opportunity to woo her in “Fade into the Background”, his love for a woman who can provide for herself in “Miss Independent” and STILL found time to join New Kids on the Block on their radio cut “Single.”
Year of the Gentleman is sure to be a classic. He covers such a wide array of emotions in only 12 tracks that its hard not to want to just reach out and hold his hand.
