With more than a decade long hiatus from music, the popular 1990s boy band, New Kids on the Block (NKOTB), tapped Ne-Yo to contribute to their long awaited comeback album. Not only did Ne-Yo pen their lead single, “Single”, but he also submitted vocals to the track, and appeared in the video and special live performances.
When NKOTB booked their appearance on the Today Show, Ne-Yo accepted their invitation to join them on stage. The CPP team produced the much talked about live performance that rocked New York City’s Rockefeller Center. Later in the show, Ne-Yo returned to the stage and performed his up-tempo smash, “Closer”.
