Ne-Yo And Boyz II Men Star Have Love Fest At The Grammys

(Radio.com) They may be from different eras but Ne-Yo and Shawn Stockman of Boyz II Men have taken notes from each other over the years. When the two recently met backstage at the 55th annual GRAMMY Awards, they sang each others praises.

"I am sitting next to one of the greatest songwriters of this generation," said R&B veteran Shawn Stockman told the Hot Morning Crew of Hot 97.3/Hartford. Ne-Yo returned the compliment by explaining that Boyz II Men was one of his biggest influences growing up.

"In high school I wanted to be Boyz II Men," Ne-Yo joked. "I was in a singing group when I was in high school and we would get together and do really, really terrible imitations of the songs. It was not as fly as they did it!"

Stockman laughed, "Our game only stepped up when we got a record deal! Trust me, if you saw any old pictures of us before we even got signed, it is ugly." A lot more here.
