Speaking to Beats 1, Ne-Yo revealed the guest list for the follow-up to 2015’s Non-Fiction, which spans various genres. The lineup includes 2 Chainz, PARTYNEXTDOOR, Eric Bellinger, Bebe Rexha, Stefflon Don, and Romeo Santos.
“There’s actually a collection of songs that I have, that I’m holding on to for a little side project later on, but there was one of that bunch that I liked so much, that I decided to put on this album. Myself, PartyNextDoor, and Eric Bellinger are on that record.”
On the theme of being a “good man”, Ne-Yo told Apple Beats 1 radio: “This album focuses on the journey of what it is to be a good man: a good man to your spouse, a good brother to your brother, a good person to the world.
“I am not proclaiming to be perfect. A good man makes mistakes, learns from those mistakes, therefore to not then repeat those mistakes. Being a good man is a journey.”
