On the heels of my assertion that producers run their mouths too much when it comes to what they're working on, and positing that Ne-Yo's "Crazy" and "Can't B Good" are positively Michael Jackson-ish, comes the news that Ne-Yo's long-gestating dream might come true. He has been called upon to lace MJ with some fresh work. While other high-profile team-ups generally cause me to sigh heavily, this could be a match made in musical heaven. This is all, of course, assuming he doesn't bring us "Sexy Love Part XXV," which he's been known to do. Luckily, he's still at the submission stage and The Gloved One might see right through him. Ne-Yo says, "I'm submitting songs for his new album. He's being very selective;
very picky, but he's supposed to be. This is a going to be a really
important album." Ne-Yo channels MJ quite a bit, so he probably needs to hear the man himself say "No, I would do it this way." [CM]
