Singer/songwriter Ne-Yo has revealed that he’s recorded a duet with Celine for her upcoming English-language album. Ne-Yo has worked with Celine before; he co-wrote the beautiful ballad “I Got Nothin’ Left” for her ‘Taking Chances’ album. Ne-Yo spoke about the new duet, "This time around I actually did a duet with her - it's her and me on one song, which was a challenge to say the least! I was trying to figure what I was even doing there - why would they need my voice when they have hers?" "She wanted to do the song as a duet and I was flattered, but it definitely made me question my vocal ability.” Celine and Ne-Yo; we can’t wait to hear it!
