They're trying to decide what they want it to be...
In an interview with Billboard, Ne-Yo said that Beyonce is still hard at work on her new album.
Here are highlights:
On Beyonce's album: ""I'm still putting stuff together for Beyonce's album. They're still trying to figure out what they want that to be, which I'm not mad at. Beyonce's the kind of artist where you're not gonna see it till it's right. And her fans -- they love her so they'll be patient."
On doing work for Jay-Z's new album Magna Carta Holy Grail: "The thing about Jay is again you don't know until it's done. I went in, I did a session where I laid down a couple hooks but I have no idea what's going to be kept. I heard some of the new stuff. It's amazing. With Jay-Z it's hard not to be amazing."
On the current status of R&B: "I'm really excited about what's happening in R&B right now. I want to see what my place is in the whole thing. That's not to say I'm abandoning the EDM genre. I've gotten so much unimaginable love from that fanbase and that genre. It's really rare that an entire genre of music allows an artist from a different genre to come and live there. By no means am I abandoning that, but I definitely know I need to take care of my core -- the thing that got me here in the first place. I don't feel like I've given it the attention it deserves."
