Ne-Yo will be the latest urban artist to cross over to the soap-opera world on May 21 and 22, when he performs on All My Children; he’ll be the featured musical entertainment at the wedding of two Pine Valley residents, and all won’t go according to plan on the romance front, natch. What will proceed the way the script intends is the cross-promotion for Ne-Yo’s forthcoming album Year Of The Gentleman, from which the evil genius crooner’s wedding toasts will be drawn. “Stop This World” is described by the album’s press release as “embracing Lennon and McCartney with the same vigor as Marvin Gaye and Michael Jackson… [it] should be hailed as one of the most beautiful love songs in years,” while the other track on the docket is “Closer,” in which the production duo Stargate dispenses with its “Irreplaceable” strummed-guitar template and brings the Eurodisco tension. Oh, Ne-Yo, you really do know how to get me excited. A YouTube rip of “Closer” is after the jump.
