New Beyonce Album Not Coming Soon According To Ne-Yo

(Radio.com) Ne-Yo is best known to fans for moody tracks like "Closer" and "Miss Independent," but some of his biggest successes have actually come from his work as a songwriter for other artists.

The crooner co-penned Beyonce's 2007 hit "Irreplaceable," and is now speaking out on his latest work with Bey for her upcoming fifth studio album, expected this year.

"I'm still putting stuff together for Beyonce's album," he told Billboard. "They're still trying to figure out what they want that to be, which I'm not mad at."

Bey has reportedly been working on the record since last summer when she met with the likes of Ryan Tedder, The-Dream and Sia in the Hamptons to collaborate on potential album material. While the effort is months in the making and remains unscheduled for release, Ne-Yo says it will be worth the wait.

"Beyonce's the kind of artist where you're not gonna see it till it's right," he said in the interview. "And her fans they love her so they'll be patient."

No official single has been released, but fans have had a taste of what to expect with new tracks appearing in recent Pepsi and H&M commercials, along with a contribution to animated movie Epic's soundtrack, "Rise Up."

Listen to clips of "Bow Down" and "I Been On," which Beyonce released back in March here.
