  • Ne-Yo has taken his Compound Entertainment imprint to Motown Records.

Pop/R&B star and Camden native Ne-Yo has brought his Compound Entertainment label under the umbrella of Motown Records, where he is now senior vice president of A&R (via Rolling Stone).

He'll be writing and producing music in addition to the usual A&R responsibilities of shepherding budding, naive young talents into the high-pressure, high-stakes world of pop stardom and making sure they don't fall in with the wrong crowd or become massively egotistical prima donna cokeheads.
