In his career to date, NE-YO has sold a cumulative 20+ million adjusted albums
worldwide. The Motown Records/Compound Entertainment recording artist has won three
GRAMMY ® awards and been honored with a total of 14 nominations. His first single, 2005’s
“So Sick,” hit No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100, and was certified quadruple Platinum. Since then,
he has racked up a collection of hit singles – including “Sexy Love,” “Closer,” “Because of
You,” “Miss Independent” and “Push Back” featuring Bebe Rexha and Stefflon Don. Three of
his albums have entered SoundScan’s Top Current Albums chart at No. 1.
He has proven to be as powerful with his pen as he is in the recording studio and on
stage. The Las Vegas native quickly became known as a go-to hitmaker, penning bangers like
Rihanna’s “Unfaithful,” “Russian Roulette,” and “Take a Bow,” along with Beyoncé’s 2006
breakup anthem “Irreplaceable” and songs for such artists as Jennifer Hudson, Usher, Carrie
Underwood, Celine Dion, among others. In addition to “World of Dance,” NE-YO’s film and
television credits include Save the Last Dance, Battle: Los Angeles, Stomp the Yard,
George Lucas; Red Tails, Empire, The Wiz Live!and Step Up: High Water.
