R.E.D. (an acronym for Realizing Every Dream), is the upcoming fifth studio album by American singer-songwriter Ne-Yo. The album is Ne-Yo's first album with new label Motown Records after being appointed as the label's senior vice president for A&R. The album contains songs that crossover different genres of music, combining elements of R&B, pop and dance-pop.
On R.E.D., Ne-Yo has re-united with frequent partners StarGate as well as new collaborators such as Harmony Samuels, No I.D. and The Underdogs. Early previews of the album indicate a progression in the singer's sound with a deeper lyrical content. Preceding the album's release are two lead singles, the R&B-tinged "Lazy Love" which reached the upper half of the US Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart and the Sia-penned synth & Europop club song "Let Me Love You (Until You Learn to Love Yourself)".
With 90,000 units on its first week on the UK sales, “Let Me Love You (Until You Learn To Love Yourself)”, NE-YO’s overall 5th #1 UK single, marks his first #1 UK hit as a Motown artist, since his move from Def Jam to Motown in January. It also marks NE-YO’s biggest #1 UK sales week and is Motown’s first #1 UK hit in 20 years, since Boyz II Men’s “End of the Road” in 1992
