Ne-Yo has written hits for much of the music industries biggest stars, Mariah Carey, Beyonce, Mary J. Blige and even Michael Jackson have all solicited his incredible penmanship. Now, the R&B singer-songwriter is hoping to create even more music history with legendary vocalist Celine Dion. The pair reunited in the studio this past Sunday to work on songs for Dion’s forthcoming album Water and a Flame, her first album since 2007’s Taking Chances, which featured their first collaboration, “I Got Nothin’ Left,” produced by Chuck Harmony.
Ne-Yo shared the news tweeting, “The incomparable CELINE DION!! In studio doing something #EPIC God is good, music is good, all the time.”
Dion’s latest album is expected to be released this October, and contain cover songs performed in her Las Vegas show as well as some new records. It was also confirmed that the album will contain a duet with Stevie Wonder on a cover of his hit song “Overjoyed.”
