Ne-Yo’s Album Shock
His first three albums smashed the charts, so we assumed it was a given that when Ne-Yo dropped his fourth release ‘Libra Scale,’ it would follow suit.
But unfortunately for the RnB superstar, the record - which focuses on the choice between money, power and fame versus love - didn’t live up to it’s hype and the singer is blaming illegal downloading for the low sales figures.
In an interview with CW Detroit, the hitmaker confessed, "I was a little disturbed by my first week numbers, but a lot of things went into that first week number… the album getting leaked a month in advance definitely had something to do with it.
"That was another situation where I jumped on my soapbox [twitter] and let the world know how I felt about that. You know it’s the world we live in today, it’s the game. You either play the game or you get out.
"I’m not gonna let the ignorance of some stop me from doing what I feel like I was put on this earth to do."
