Ne-Yo is parting ways with Def Jam, the label he has called home since 2006. The singer is sticking with the Universal Music umbrella company and has just signed with Motown Records where he will have a much larger role as Senior VP of A&R. Ne-Yo will be bringing with him his Compound Entertainment which will now be distributed through Motown Records.

“I’m honored that I’ve been given such a prestigious title and trusted with such responsibility; terrified because I know that playing this role in the fashion of one of my career role models, Mr. Smokey Robinson — these are big shoes to fill. But trust, I can handle it,” Ne-Yo said of his new role.

Ne-Yo’s first order of business will be releasing his fifth studio album and first under Motown Records. Titled, “The Cracks in Mr. Perfect,” the album is due out this summer.
