Ne-Yo is one of the most requested writers in the music business today. He has penned hit songs for Beyonce, Mary J. Blige, Mario, Rihanna, and himself. Both of his platinum-selling albums – “In My Own Words” and “Because Of You” – reached the top of the sales charts off the strength of Ne-Yo’s writing ability; ability he began to fine-tune by going to school. He pushed his pen and paper aside to speak with us about his education and songwriting skill.

Since coming to America from Barbados, 19-year-old Rihanna has become one of the nations biggest Pop and R&B stars. Her first two albums – “Music of The Sun” (2005) and “A Girl Like Me” (2006) – are both certified platinum, each spawned huge hit singles. Rihanna’s more mature new release, “Good Girl Gone Bad”, is on pace to do the same. With her life moving continuously at high speed for the past three years, time to herself is not as abundant as radio requests. We slowed Rihanna down to ask her a few questions.
