Ne-Yo crying in Manchester.

July 18, 2009

Musicology: This is something i feel is going to start happening to most artist, when they have breakdowns, melt downs, downs full stop. I know you have to please your fans i understand that but you only get one life and you must treat it well.

Ne-Yo was performing in Manchester when this happened

He later issued a statement saying the following:

“Basically, I have an issue with not knowing when to say enough is enough, so last night in Manchester, my body said it for me. I got on stage energized and ready to go, even tho for the last 5 days I’ve been dealing with a sinus infection. I paid it no real mind, and kept on going, like I always do. My voice couldn’t take it. From the first song I knew something was wrong. I shoulda stopped there, but I come from a school where no matter what, the show must go on. It wasn’t until about 4 songs in that I came to the painful realization that my voice was done, literally nothing left, and that I would have to stop the show.

Now let me explain something to you, When I say this music, that stage, my fans, THIS is my life, I’m not saying it cause it sounds good in a sound bite. THIS IS MY LIFE!! Not much else matters to me, honestly. My music, my family and the people that appreciate my music…..the fans. THAT’S ABOUT IT!! I’ve never had to stop a show, never dreamed I’d ever have to. So when I had to walk out on that stage and tell 12,000 of the people responsible for making me who I am that I could not perform for them, it literally broke my heart. I cried harder than I have in a very long time with no shame whatsoever.

To anyone out there that would like to question my manhood because of this I’ll say this to you:
If the one thing you cared about more than anything else in the world was threatened or even taken from you, if you knew that the people you cared for the most you had to disappoint and it was your fault… and this didn’t spark some kind of emotional outbreak within you…then with no shame I’ll say you are truly a stronger man than I.

To the people of Manchester, know that I love you and I thank you for being so understanding and supportive. And I promise you that you will receive the show deserved.
Thanks to the fans for the love and concern.

And to the bloggers….go to hell.”

can i just say Neyo not all bloggers are bad, get better soon

Keri Hilson Review

July 1, 2009

Musicology reporter: With so much fresh young female talent around at the moment what make Keri Hilson stand out from the crowd?
Energy is the first release from Miss Hilson but she isn’t a young cat when it comes to the Music Industry, she is in fact a part of a collective of producers and writers know as the Clutch.

Throughout the early and late 2000s she wrote for many artists including Britney Spears and Ludacris. Although she didn’t hit the public eye until 2007 when she featured on the Timbaland track The Way I Are ,she has been around for quite some time behind the scenes and featuring in music videos for the likes of Usher, Ne-Yo and Nelly amongst others.

Energy was released officially in the Spring of 2009 and has become a hit with true R&B fans worldwide. After many pushbacks Energy was released on March 24th 2009 and reached number 4 on the American billboard 100 and number 1 on the official R&B charts. One of my personal favourite tracks Energy was the first worldwide release it failed to be a significant hit in the US and UK charts but is regardless a stand out track revealing a deep and personal side to Keri that had yet to be seen, a far cry from her involvement on Timbalands tracks The way I Are and Scream and Nas’s track Hero.

The second release Return The Favour Feat Timbaland became a top ten hit in the US and UK as well as all over Europe reminiscent of the tracks she had featured on previously the music scene took to it instantly.
Turnin Me On was the third official release, featuring Lil Wayne it’s an up tempo sure fire club hit and proving very popular not one my personal favourites but defo worth a listen.

Knock You Down feat Ne-Yo and Kanye West is the second UK release and the fourth US release its shaping up to be one of the standout hits of this ladies career, fans took to it and its sure to make a name for her especially having such high profile stars as Kanye featuring on the track.
