Stephen A. Smith Joined by Multi-Grammy Award-Winning Singer/Songwriter/Producer Ne-Yo on His Podcast ‘Know Mercy’

On a recent episode of Cadence13’s Know Mercy with Stephen A. Smith, Stephen A. is joined by multi-Grammy Award-winning singer/songwriter/producer Ne-Yo to discuss his newest projects and his crossover success in film, television, and philanthropy.


Ne-Yo on living his life outside the box and knowing he’s more than just his music career: 

Ne-Yo: “I’ve never really liked boxes, you know, and for whatever reason, this is just a human thing for us to… compartmentalize things. You know what I mean? I’ve never… been a fan of that. You know…I know what I’m good at. I know what needs work, and I know that I’m more than music. And I’ve just always wanted to express that, you know what I’m saying? And that’s… pretty much all that is. To call me just an R&B artist or just a pop artist or just a songwriter or just an actor. Like, why? Like, I’d rather not sit in any of those boxes and just do what I’m doing and people appreciate it.”
