Good news, Ne-Yo fans: the chart-topping R&B singer says his upcoming fifth studio album will be “full of real music.”

You might think that much would be obvious, but he’s actually being serious. He elaborated during a recent VH1 appearance, lamenting the current state of the genre and saying, “R&B needs to make a comeback. [We need] songs that evoke emotions. That song that reminds you of that really great relationship, or that crappy relationship or everything that happened in between.”

Ne-Yo’s been out talking about the upcoming album, currently titled ‘Love and Passion,’ since early this year, when he announced he was prepping it for a September release. No official street date has been announced.
