Celine Dion Talks New Album, ‘Loved Me Back To Life’

dionc

Celine Dion is gearing up for the release of her  upcoming 25 studio album, Loved Me Back To Life; her first in six years.

The Canadian-born singer promises this album will be her edgiest yet. The album will feature tracks written by Ne-Yo, and Sia .  It also includes collaborations with Babyface, and Tricky Stewart.  Celine Dion sat down with Billboard to dish on her new album and what fans can expect.

“Loved Me Back To Life,” hits iTunes on September 3.

Loved Me Back to Life, the album, drops November 5, 2013.

Dion on trying a different approach:

“There was a point in my career I can remember for maybe 10 years it was all about, ‘Who’s gonna hold a note longer? Who’s gonna sing the note higher?’ And that’s what the industry demanded. It’s not that we were in competition with each other. None of the singers who were doing that stuff wanted that… It has to evolve at some point, even if it’s just for yourself. I can’t wait to go onstage and sing these songs.”

On writers taking a chance on her, despite not releasing an album in six years:

“I’ve been gone for six years. There’s a time where you think, ‘Do you think people will write songs for me?'” she says. “I’m at the mercy of the songs because I don’t write my material. But I could not believe what I was hearing. I’m not trying to reinvent myself, I don’t want people to think. ‘This is a brand new Celine,’ but I am at a place in my career where I’m 45, I’m at the peak of my life, and I’ve never felt like this before. I want to have a good time.”

Ne-Yo doesn’t support new Michael Jackson album

 

 

Looks like the Michael album has one less supporter. R&B singer Ne-Yo told TMZ, that he doesn’t want to listen to the new Michael Jackson album because he thinks The King of Pop would have never wanted it to be released.

Here’s how TMZ is reporting it:


The singer/songwriter/producer was in NY this weekend — where he explained MJ was such a perfectionist, “If Michael was still alive … I don’t think the album would be out yet.”

He added, “I’m gonna stick to my old Mike.”

 

He has a point :Kanye Shrug:

Ne-Yo wants an independent woman and not a gold digger

Seems like  somebody got on singer Ne-Yo‘s bad side.  Ne-Yo, whose real name is Shaffer Smith,  is tired of women who only want him for his money and fame. The “Beautiful Monster” singer also wishes he had found real love before he became known in the industry.

The singer also went on to say that he would never marry a woman who depended on him for money.

“I don’t want someone who’s with me because she needs help paying the rent,” said Ne-Yo.  “My mom worked six jobs to make sure we never needed anything so that’s the kind of woman I’ll marry.”

Although Ne-Yo is a celebrity, he wants someone by his side that wants the real him.

“I love a woman who laughs and can make me laugh,” says Ne-Yo.  “I rarely give my number out because most women don’t care who Shaffer is. If you don’t care about the real me should I waste time with you?”

In an interview with Company magazine, Ne-Yo spoke candidly about how hard it is to find a real woman. “I’ve been caught out more times that I’m proud of,” said Ne-Yo.  “I applaud guys who found the one before fame. After the money, cars and jewelry, it’s difficult to figure out who’s there for you and who’s there for the bank account.”

Kanye West is known for going against the grain, so it should come as no surprise that the “Power” singer will release his new album on a Monday. West confirmed via his Twitter account that he would be releasing his highly anticipated new album on November 22, 2010.

Here’s what West tweeted:

“L.A. Reid who’s doing a great job at Def Jam. We gone Kill it again on November 22nd!!!!!!!!!! Even with the leaks fam.”

The album still doesn’t have a title yet, but at east it has a release date.  This Monday release definitely gives West a leg-up on the competition.  West will be one of the many artists pushing out an album around this time.  Expect albums from Nicki Minaj, Ne-Yo, My Chemical Romance, and Flo Rida to all drip around the same time.

New Music Video: Mariah Carey – Angels Cry (feat. Ne-Yo)

Looks like Mariah is on a roll by releasing two music videos simultaneously. This video and song is a lot better than that “Outta My face ” crap. It’s a nice song and it’s almost signature Mariah.

BTW, is singing in an alley the “new thing’? First Chris Brown, now Mariah.

Vodpod videos no longer available.
