Left Handed Celebrities | Ne-Yo
In my search for left handed rappers, artists, singers and just musicians, I came across the musical genius, Ne-yo. Ne-Yo is left handed! Although, there aren't any existing blogs, posts or articles that I could find that confirmed or even mentioned it much. He has quite a few photos out there with him doing left handed things. This was an awesome Friday find. He's affectionately known as the "love song" guy.
Ne-Yo has his hands in literally everything in the entertainment industry. Singing, record producing, dancing, songwriting and acting. Anyone from talking age to seniors know who this phenomenon is. If not, check out his skills on Live on Good Morning America singing PUSH BACK with Bebe Rexha and English singer and rapper Stefflon Don.
Here's Ne-Yo's biography per Wikipedia:
"Shaffer Chimere Smith (born October 18, 1982), known professionally as Ne-Yo, is an American singer, songwriter, record producer, dancer, and actor. He gained fame for his songwriting abilities when he penned his 2004 hit "Let Me Love You" for singer Mario. The single's successful release in the United States prompted an informal meeting between Ne-Yo and Def Jam's label head, and the signing of a recording contract. His debut solo single, "Stay", was released in 2005 to moderate success. Ne-Yo's debut studio album, In My Own Words (2006), was critically and commercially successful, reaching number one on the Billboard 200 chart in the United States. It is certified platinum in the United States, United Kingdom, Japan and Australia, and saw the success of the single "So Sick", which topped the Billboard Hot 100 chart in the United States.
Because of You (2007), Ne-Yo's second studio album, was the second number one platinum-selling album debuted on the Billboard 200 and Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums charts, and received the Grammy Award for Best Contemporary R&B Album at the 50th Grammy Awards. His third studio album, Year of the Gentleman (2008), saw continued success and further Grammy Award nominations for Best Contemporary R&B Album as well as Album of the Year. Its singles "Closer" and "Miss Independent" were also nominated for the Grammy Award for Best Male Pop Vocal Performance, Best Male R&B Vocal Performance and Best R&B Song.Year of the Gentleman has been certified platinum twice in the US, selling two million copies, also platinum three times in the UK and once in Japan.
Libra Scale (2010), Ne-Yo's fourth studio album, reached number one in the UK R&B Singles and Albums Charts and number 9 on the US Billboard 200, seeing a decline in overall sales. His fifth studio album, R.E.D. (2012), saw the international success of its lead single "Let Me Love You (Until You Learn to Love Yourself)", which certified platinum in the United States and sold over two million copies. Ne-Yo's sixth studio album, Non-Fiction, followed in 2015. His seventh studio album, Good Man, was released on June 8, 2018. In addition to music, Ne-Yo currently serves as judge for the reality competition series World of Dance alongside Jennifer Lopez and Derek Hough."
So, as you can see, Ne-Yo is by far one of the most successful artists ever. We are proud to say that Ne-Yo is a lefty.
