A huge difference between songwriting and being a singer. A songwriter can have a normal life. You’re an ordinary person. But as an artist, somethings can’t be ignored. You have to make sure you look like a million bucks. There’s a certain image you have to maintain. It was a difficult transition, but I’m actually learning to love the spotlight.

The key to a good song is to find a way to say something in a different way.Find something related to the people you’re trying to reach. Find your own niche. It’s difficult. I recommend honing your skills and be the best you can be until your opportunity comes along. When opportunity comes, make sure you’re on top of your game.
Neyo on songwriting

Something that a lot of people don’t know is that I have a five-month old son. Any free time I have now is spent with him. A few people suggested to me that I should try and hide the fact that I have a son because it might damage my career. But as far as I’m concerned, to hide it would suggest that I was ashamed and I’m not ashamed. I love my son. Me and his mum aren’t in a relationship. We’re actually best friends. We’ve known each other for years and years and never ever wanted to be in a relationship with each other. But the one time we... got physical, she fell pregnant. Of course, we did a lot of talking to decide how we were gonna handle the situation. We weren’t about to start a relationship for the sake of the child ‘cos that’s not what either of us wanted. So I just said, ‘You be mum, I’ll be dad and let’s just raise a son.’ And though we’re not together, that’s exactly what we’re doing.

In songwriting, it’s natural to make music for yourself. The hardest thing was finding balance between making music [for myself] and something the consumer can enjoy.
