Ne-Yo (echte naam Shaffer Chimere Smith) is een Amerikaanse R&B zanger en songwriter. Zijn doorbraak kwam in 2004, toen het door hem geschreven nummer Let me love you, gezongen door Mario, wereldwijd een grote hit werd. In 2006 kwam zijn debuutalbum In my own words uit.



Zijn albums volgen elkaar erg snel op: in 2007 kwam zijn tweede album Because of you en in 2008 Year of the gentleman.
Ook als songwriter is hij erg druk bezig, hij schreef hits voor onder meer Mario, Chris Brown, Snoop Dogg, Rihanna, Beyoncé, Jay-Z, Usher, Janet Jackson, Anastacia en Ciara.

In 2011 scoort hij, samen met Pitbull, Nayer en Afrojack zijn eerste nummer 1-hit met Give Me Everything. Het nummer zou zijn grootste hit worden. Turn Around, zijn samenwerking met Connor Maynard, is in 2012 zijn laatste en 13e Top 40-hit.

In 2014 werkt hij opnieuw samen met Pitbull op Times Of Our Lives, dat in februari 2015 in de Top 40 komt. Ook verschijnt dan zijn zesde studioalbum, Non Fiction, waarvan de single Coming With You als voorloper verschijnt.




Songtekst

Want to, but I can't help it
I love the way it feels
Its got me stuck between my fantasy and what is real
I need it when I want it
I want it when I don't
Tell myself I'll stop every day, knowing that I won't

I got a problem and I
Don't know what to do about it
Even if I did I don't know if I would quit but I doubt it, I'm
Taken by the thought of it

[chorus]
And I know this much is true
Baby you have become my addiction
I'm so strung out on you
I can barely move
But I like it

And it's all because of you
(All because of you)
And it's all because of you
(All because of you)
And it's all because of you
(All because of you)
And it's all because
Never get enough, she's the sweetest drug

think of it every second
I can't get nothing done
Only concern is the next time I'm gon' get me some
Know I should stay away from
'Cuz it's no good for me
I try and try but my obsession won't let me leave

I got a problem and I
Don't know what to do about it even If I did I don't know
If I would quit but I doubt it, I'm
Taken by the thought of it
Hey!

[chorus]
And I know this much is true
Baby you have become my addiction
I'm so strung out on you
I can barely move
But I like it

And it's all because of you
(All because of you)
And it's all because of you
(All because of you)
And it's all because of you
(All because of you)
And it's all because
Never get enough (Never get enough), she's the sweetest drug

Ain't no doubt (No doubt)
So strung out (Strung out)
Ain't no doubt (There's ain't no doubt)
So strung out
Over you
Over you...

Because of you
And it's all because of you
Never get enough
She's the sweetest drug
She's the sweetest drug
