Singer Ne-Yo sings on a new track for Celine Dion’s upcoming Loved Me Back To Life album and now he’s sharing his experience about working on the project.
Ne-Yo appears in a behind-the-scenes video for Access Hollywood in which he proclaims:
“Working with Celine Dion is kind of like a kid in a Candy Store because having that huge and incredible voice for me to do basically whatever I want to do with it, is like a kid with a brand new toy.”
The singer says: “It’s an honor and pleasure to sing with Celine Dion but it’s not an easy thing.” Ne-Yo then jokes, “It’s the most irrelevant I’ve ever felt, the size of her voice, you don’t need me there she could do the whole song herself. I honestly feel like she was just being nice to me letting me sing on the song!”
Ne-Yo might feel “irrelevant” but Celine Dion had nothing but nice things to say about his own talents: “Thank you so very much. I love the song, I admire you and I’m privileged to have the song.”
Ne-Yo describes the song “Incredible” as “A situation where you are in the spotlight and it’s all or nothing, do or die. I’m here, everybody’s watching. Let me do something incredible, let me do something that’s going to make people remember I was here.’ Celine adds ‘This song is gonna become a song for the Olympics, for a big finals with the team coming out (on to the pitch) and the whole world is watching and it’s incredible.”
“Incredible” is one of the first tracks off Celine Dion’s first English language album since 2007’s Taking Chances. The song was penned by Sia, who also wrote the albums title track Loved Me Back To Life.
Also featured on the album is a duet with Stevie Wonder. Dion and Wonder share the spotlight on a remake of his hit track “Overjoyed.”
