Ne-Yo: I want to work with Adele

Ne-Yo would love to team up with Adele

Ne-Yo has revealed he would love to work with Adele and "do something great" in the recording studio with her.

The 33-year-old music star, whose real name is Shaffer Chimere Smith, has a number of musicians he admires and would like to collaborate with.

Ne-Yo said: "I'm loving Adele. Have been since 19. I'm a huge fan of Plan B. I like his stuff and I feel he hasn't been getting the recognition he deserves just yet.

"Lana Del Rey, I'm really feeling her at the moment. And Emeli Sande, I like her song, Beneath You're Beautiful. I like that record.

"I would love to get in with any of those, and we would start to do something great together. I feel that if you go in the studio and do anything less than great you're wasting your time."

The R&B star had a dig at pop stars who don't write their own music or sing live, saying he wouldn't want to work with them.

He said: "I wouldn't want to work with anyone who doesn't sing or write, but I can imagine that would be a very handful of people that don't sing their own songs."

You may be busy with work and family, but these duties will never let up. If you continue to spend all of your energy on these things, you'll miss a golden opportunity. Ask colleagues and relatives for help with mundane errands while you focus on the long term financial future. If you don't protect your economic interests, nobody else will.More
