Ne-Yo Leaves Def Jam, Heads to Motown As Artist & Senior VP Of A&R

According to Billboard.biz, Ne-Yo is bringing his Compound Entertainment imprint to Motown Records.

Ne-Yo: "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,"

Universal Republic & Island Def Jam Motown Chairman/CEO Barry Weiss: 
"His track record of success at Def Jam will always be a benchmark, 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."

Ne-Yo will serve as a producer and mentor to Motown artists, as well as Senior VP of A&R.
