Ne-Yo is a songwriter and performer who broke into the industry by chance. Originally signed with Columbia Records, he was dropped before his release in 2000. As luck would have it, another artist heard, liked, and re-recorded one of the songs from the unreleased album, giving Ne-Yo a chance to emerge as a songwriter. His own career as a performer started when he signed with Def-Jam Recordings and issued his debut album in 2006.
