For the first time in his career, the “Sexy Love” singer is working with a handful of other songwriters to enhance the process and give him a fresh take. Speaking about his decision to do so, Ne-Yo explained: “It’s not that I can’t do it myself, I can definitely do it myself, but this time I decided to bring in some folks to expand on what I already had … That’s what its about, it’s about expanding it’s about evolution, while at the same time staying true to who you are.”

Ne-Yo and Eric Bellinger have been building their working relationship more recently, but Eric is credited for penning the title song “Think Like A Man” which Ne-Yo sang along with Jennifer Hudson, for the soundtrack to the 2012 comedy Think Like A Man.

Toronto rap superstar, Drake has shattered is for the highest-grossing Hip Hop tour for his Summer Sixteen Tour with Future.

Drake grossed $84.3 million over 56 shows in 38 cities between July 20 and October 8, according to numbers from Pollstar. The average show on the tour drew a crowd of 19,793 fans who paid an average ticket price of $112.08. In total, there were 752,141 tickets sold.

Beyoncé came in at #2 for 2016 by grossing $256.2 million with her Formation Tour’s 49 shows, while Bruce Springsteen & The E Street Band took the top spot with a tour that grossed $268.3 million over 76 shows.

Kanye West’s Saint Pablo Tour was the second-highest grossing Hip Hop tour of 2016, pulling in $52.8 million over 41 shows to land at the 29 spot.
