Ne-Yo follows a trilogy of platinum albums released in 2007, 2008, and 2009 with 2010’s Libra Scale. Inspired by science fiction and comic books, as well as Stevie Wonder’s and Michael Jackson's most ambitious recordings, the album revolves around the concept of three everyday men who are offered everything they could possibly want for protecting their city -- but they must not fall in love. The album is led by two contrasting singles: the charging, club-oriented “Beautiful Monster” and the elegant, celebratory “Champagne Life.”
