Ne-Yo stopped by Billy Bush’s radio studio to discuss his new single ‘Champagne Life’, his tour, whether he’d produce a Broadway play and being a bit unimpressed with music he’s been seeing lately. “I love Eminem’s new album, but I am a little bit unimpressed with the state of music right now,” Ne-Yo explained. “I mean, the whole concept of bandwagon has been a part of the music industry from the beginning of time. Somebody steps out on a ledge and takes a chance at something and they’re successful at it, and everybody follows suit for a little while. I get that. Totally undertand that. I won’t say I was the first person to bring that UK sound over here. I was not the first person, I was one of the first to do it successfully, and after the fact you get 27 other people to do the same thing. I get it, but at the same time it does nothing for music, it does nothing for radio, turn on the radio and every song sounds the same… It gets boring for me, so I know that for the consumer, it gets boring for you.” Watch the interview via YouTube below.
