EDITORS’ NOTES

Debuting with a series of slick throwback tracks that were steeped in the smooth sound of '80s funk and soul, R&B singer/songwriter Ne-Yo has more recently reinvented himself as a dance-pop star. Coproduced by pop masterminds like Dr. Luke and club kings like David Guetta, Non-Fiction is Ne-Yo’s sixth studio album in nine years. He remains one of the few artists to convincingly combine EDM with R&B, effortlessly draping his honeyed voice over high-energy house beats—but it turns out that Non-Fiction’s best moments are its many swooning slow jams. And woozily futuristic cuts like “Run” and “Good Morning” even find the mainstream-friendly artist engaging with the more adventurous and alternative side of modern R&B.
