From one songwriter-producer to another, Ne-Yo says he's a big of Calvin Harris' work on Rihanna's #1 smash "We Found Love." Ne-Yo has written hits for Rihanna himself, including "Unfaithful," "Take a Bow" and "Russian Roulette," and he says he's a big admirer of the RiRi track.
He tells ABC News Radio, "Just the simplicity of that record is the beauty of it. It's not too much, it's just enough to where you understand it, you could sing along to it. The beat is driving, you can't hear that and not move. It's a perfect record."
Right now, Ne-Yo is gearing up for the release of his album R.E.D., due out later this year. He performed material from the upcoming set on Friday during an appearance on the Good Morning America Summer Concert Series on ABC.
