Ne-Yo is taking his talents from Def Jam and moving over to Motown it was announced Tuesday (January 24).
Ne-Yo will record for the label and scout for new talent in his new position of Senior VP of A&R according to Billboard.
"His track record of success at Def Jam will always be a benchmark," Universal Republic and Island Def Jam Motown chairman/CEO Barry Weiss said in a statement announcing the news. "But this move to Motown will provide new and inspiring challenges for Ne-Yo as both an artist and a key member of the new senior management team that is taking form at the label in 2012."
The singer/actor had previously released four albums on Def Jam. The last being 2010's Libra Scale.
His new disc, The Cracks in Mr. Perfect, will be released through his Compound Entertainment imprint and Motown later this year.
Ne-Yo said he's excited about the new opportunity.
"I'm honored that I¹ve been given such a prestigious title and trusted with such responsibility; terrified because I know that playing this role in the fashion of one of my career role models, Mr. Smokey Robinson -- these are big shoes to fill. But trust, I can handle it," he said.
