Ne-Yo has admitted that he regrets giving Beyonce “Irreplaceable.” Ne-Yo has revealed hat he actually wrote the mega-hit for himself, but ended up giving it to Bey — although he admits that he probably wouldn’t have been able to do the track justice.
In a radio interview, Ne-Yo said, “One song that I gave away and didn’t want to is Beyonce’s ‘Irreplaceable’. I honestly wrote that song for myself. But that song actually taught me a very interesting lesson – men and women don’t actually think that much differently on the grand scheme of things.”He continued,”However, a man singing it comes across a little bit misogynistic, a little bit mean.”
- Ne-Yo added that he’d like to collaborate with Bey’s husband Jay-Z to make a “classic” track. He said, “Jay featured on a track of mine on my second album, and I featured on one of his on his ‘Kingdom Come’ album but we haven’t done anything since then. Jay is a good friend, he’s a good person. Though we’ve worked together I think there’s potential for a classic record there and we haven’t really realized that potential yet.”
- In other news, reports say that Ne-Yo and his baby’s mama Monyetta are expecting another baby. Monyetta gave birth to their daughter Madilyn Grace Smith in December. She was born premature.
