He's the gentleman of R&B, songwriter to the stars, and the heir apparent to Jacko's mantle as the best dancer in pop. Now he's also a newly minted dad: Ne-Yo's girlfriend gave birth to the couple's first child last November. This looks set to be a particular busy year for the singer, who has a sizable acting role in the forthcoming sci-fi flick Battle: Los Angeles, and recently postponed a clutch of European tour dates in order to focus on recording the follow-up up to current album Libra Scale. Japanese fans, by contrast, got rewarded with an extra date scheduled at the more intimate (for which read: not stadium-sized) Studio Coast. Favoritism: gotta love it.
Note: an update on promoter Creativeman's website promises that they will endeavor to hold this show as planned, though blackouts or aftershocks may force a last-minute cancellation.
