GRAMMY-winning artist Ne-Yo discusses his creative influences, the themes in his music, collaborating with artists such as Beyoncé and Mary J. Blige, and his 2012 studio album, R.E.D., among other topics. The interview took place at the 2014 GRAMMY GPS: A Road Map For Today's Music Pro, hosted by The Recording Academy Atlanta Chapter. "R.E.D. is an acronym that stands for Realizing Every Dream," said Ne-Yo. "I made sure that with this album there is an equal amount of songs … so that everybody can enjoy it."
