In the movie "The Matrix," Neo saves the world from technology run amok.
In the R&B matrix, Ne-Yo is out to save Whitney Houston. From herself.
The superstar writa ternt sanga has been called in by none other than Clive Davis to rework Whitney’s upcoming comeback album, and according to Ne-Yo, he got there just in time.
"(All the songs) had the one same theme, which was ‘My name is Whitney Houston and this is my triumphant comeback,’" Ne-Yo told The Sun after hearing eight cuts off the record. "I’m sure we all get that (she’s suffered a lot) but I think she needs songs about regular everyday life. So that’s what I’m planning to add to the album — songs about everyday emotions."
Meanwhile, Ne-Yo’s own "everyday emotions" — not to mention those of his female co-stars — are on full display in the video for his sexed-up hit, "Because of You."
