R&B singer Ne-Yo puts respect over cash!

The “Beautiful Nightmare” singer recently revealed in an interview with MTV that he had been writing songs for the late Pop idol Michael Jackson before his death and even sent him three or four drafts a week while he was on tour. But has now decided to not sell the tracks or even use them himself out of respect for MJ.

The singer/songwriter told MTV:

“I can’t sell them on to someone else, as that would be disrespectful, but I also think it might be disrespectful to bring them out myself. So I don’t know, I’ll sit on them and wait. It’s definitely quality music but they were songs written absolutely for Michael Jackson. Hopefully the songs will see the light of day, it just has to be the right way.”

Big-ups to Ne-Yo for that one! There are some things you just don’t touch…
