Ne-Yo has revealed he is keen to get into the studio with the multi Grammy Award winners because he is such a fan of their powerful voices.
The ‘Let Me Love You’ hitmaker revealed to ETOnline: ‘[I’m] loving what’s going on with Sam Smith right now.
‘[I’m] waiting for Adele to come back. I heard she’s about to get into the studio. I’d love to get in and do some stuff with her.’
The 35-year old singer and producer, who recently released his new album ‘Non-Fiction’, has previously worked with artists including Beyonce,Rihanna and Celine Dion, but explained he prefers British acts because they are more focused on the ‘artistry’ of the music, as opposed to stories surrounding their personal lives.
He continued: ‘It seems like over there the focus is on the music and the artistry.’
‘Whereas [in America] we kind of get caught up more a little bit in the controversy, the scandal, the back story, the imaging and all of that.’
