Ne-Yo is collaborating with someone outside of the music industry for his upcoming “Libra Scale” album. Billboard.com reports the vocalist is partnering up with former Marvel Comics president Stan Lee to create a comic book. The two appeared together at last Saturday’s Comic-Con in New York to talk about their new joint venture. The 87-year-old comic book impresario joked about giving the R&B vocalist “pointers on his rapping.” Lee says he and Ne-Yo have “big plans” to merge music, comics, and super heroes in the future.
Titled after Ne-Yo’s new album, the “Libra Scale” comic book will be released by Lee’s POW! Entertainment. The book will tell the story of an average man named Jerome who is given superpowers on one condition — that he never fall in love. Ne-Yo’s “Libra Scale” album arrives on November 22nd.
