Ne-Yo’s ‘Libra Scale’ Album Leaks!

 

  Following the footsteps of most celebrities who have suffered the setback of album leaks, Ne-yo has used Twitter tonight as an outlet to release his frustrations. Check out what he had to say about the hackers:

“I’LL BE DAMNED IF YOU HACKER FUCKS GET MY NEXT ALBUM BEFORE IT’S TIME!!!FUCK YOU ALL!!!! Have a nice day.”

 Neyo’s Libra Scale is set for release on November 23rd.

 I hope Ne-yo can overcome this negative energy as he will need all his focus to go toward heavy album promotion before his release week.  He is going head-to- head against two currently blazing hot artists; Nicki Minaj and Kanye West.  His album leaked just one month before his official release date, and that leaves little time for him to add remixes or bonus songs to the album as selling incentives.  

 I got a kick out of his whole  Twitter rant, check it out after the jump.

Salutations all. I’m in japan and my album officially came out today out here. Today is a day that I SHOULD be very happy, but it has been brought to my attention that my album was hacked and leaked in the U.S. roughly a month before it’s U.S. release.

Initially this angered me. It’s stealing plain n’ simple. But then I started thinking. Why do I make music….? To sell records, make money, or is it because I love it, love how it touches people, how it helps people? The honest answer is both…

However, my love for music and it’s effect on people, outweighs my desire to simply sell records, or get that number one debut spot.

In a time where people buy their status and falsify their success, can those things really be that important to me? The answer is no.

So with that said, I’ve come to this place of mental peace. No longer stressing people that steal the music, how it’ll effect my sales. The bottom line is, I worked hard on this project. The music, the concept, the whole lot is for the people, respect or not.

So if you as a fan give a damn about me, buy the album when it comes out. If you don’t care, go get it off the internet. Your choice.

Ether way, the music, the concept, the whole lot, served it’s purpose. It gave the people something quality to vibe to. I’m not solely in the business of selling records. I’m in the business of making art. That’s what an artist does, period.

So with that twit fam and haters alike, I bid you farewell for now, and leave you with this….

“I’LL BE DAMNED IF YOU HACKER FUCKS GET MY NEXT ALBUM BEFORE IT’S TIME!!!FUCK YOU ALL!!!! Have a nice day.”
