    Why are we so quick to anoint Ne-Yo as the next great icon of R&B?
    He's done some great things, but let's see this continue over an extended period of time.

    You've made him out to be Jimmy Jam & Terry Lewis all rolled up into one.

    He's coo, but it's really the fact that the R&B game is trash now, and he reigns on top. It's sorta like saying that Shawn Marion is the best player in the NBA if everybody better than him was out of the league for some reason....it's like yeah he is, but it's not saying much.

    Exactly... it's why Dirk and Nash are the only 2 MVPs of the last 3 years... because the whole league is trash right now...

    And Javier is a better singer and just as good if not a better song writer.

    I don't know how this guy isn't HUGE right now with the type of music that's popular...

    I've been loving a lot of NeYo's stuff but his new CD is not as good as the 1st. He is trying to hard to be like Mike Jackson. I mean damn...cool it out. But I do love his songwriting skills......

    It didn't take a genius to write Umbrella though.....

    That's how I feel also. Just because he has done a lot of commercially viable ghost-writting for other popular artists doesn't mean that any of those songs were 'great'.

    I will give him his due for making his mark in terms of writing songs that appeal to a large audience, but he's still got a long way to go. He hasn't made any music that I could call "lasting".

    He's an ok songwriter in a time where someone can have a hit with absolutely no content in the lyrics. Prime example....

    MIMS - This is why I'm Hott (Number one single)

    (First Verse)
    This is why I’m hot
    I dont gotta rap
    I can sell a mill sayin nothing on the track

    True, dark-sun, it doesn't take much. Technically, though, those are two different genres of music.

    It still appeals to virtually the same audience though. It's not like that's true hip hop anymore. I think that shit is gimmick music and that attracts young kids in high school who do stupid dances and shit to the song. And who you think mainly listens to Ne-Yo? Same thing to me.
