    Ne-yo's Playlist

    1. Lady GaGaThe Fame

    "I have become a huge Lady GaGa fan. I dig her. Listening to her stuff and watching her stage performance, I think she really embodies what it is to be an artist. She's out there. She's weird, for lack of a better term, but it's a good weird. She is who she is, and she doesn't make any apologies for it. I think more people should think of music like she does instead of all this copycattin' you see going on."

    2. Kanye West808s & Heartbreak

    "I dig this album. If you understand who Kanye is and what he was going through when he did this album, then it all makes perfect sense. You can't listen to this album like you can College Dropout or Late Registration or even Graduation. It's a different Kanye on this album. It's a dark, moody and emotional album."

    3. Anthony HamiltonThe Point of it All

    4. Jazmine SullivanFearless

    "She's amazing. She tells it like it is."

    5. John LegendEvolver

    6. ColdplayViva La Vida

    "It's dope."
