Shaffer Chimere Smith (born October 18, 1979), better known by his stage name Ne-Yo, is an American singer, songwriter, rapper, record producer, dancer, and actor.

In April 2007, Ne-Yo released his second studio album, Because of You, and was the second number one platinum-selling album debuted on US Billboard 200 and Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums charts. The album won a Grammy Award for Best Contemporary R&B Album at the 2008 Grammy Awards. Ne-Yo's third studio album, Year of the Gentleman, was released internationally on August 2008.
