Male R&B Artist Neyo Neyo is one of the best male artists out at the moment. He has made 3 albums and has written songs for himself and other artist. Neyo has a real talent in writing songs as he captures real life dilemmas in his songs which goes well with narrative music videos as the lyrics and visuals link together. He has had hit songs like “So Sick” which was his 1st debut single then “Mad” which was a great narrative video and “Miss Independent” which represented women in a good light. His fans seem to be more ladies because of the way he captures reality and emotions in his songs. He is also a great dancer but he is the king when it comes to lyrics intepretation and presentation. Neyo has his own unique look where he wears suits in his videos since the “Year of the gentlemen” album which follows through in the “Libra Scale” album and differentiates himself from other artist. He is more of the gentleman out of all the artists. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gqayCgvI_uI&NR=1 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k6M5C-oKw9k&ob=av3e http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6tpl9LtkRRw&ob=av2e
