Ne-Yo, currently on tour with the Pussycat Dolls, spoke recently to ’My Park’ magazine. In the interview he said he has been writing and submitting songs to Michael for his new album, and is “incredibly excited” about Michael’s material, adding that Michael selects the songs he likes.
Ne-Yo has no idea when the album will be released but he said that Michael is very ‘picky’ about the new material, as it will be such a huge project.
He added that he hung up on Michael when he initially called him, and Michael’s manager had to call him back to confirm that it was really Michael on the phone and that he actually did want to speak to him.
