Ne-Yo admits he had his doubts about Lindsay Lohan's vocal talents when he was asked to write a song for her upcoming third album, due later this year.
"I gotta admit, we were like ... 'Lindsay Lohan?'" Ne-Yo tells Billboard magazine. "I mean, I've written for Beyonce, Mary J. Blige, Rihanna, Celine Dion and ... Lindsay Lohan?"
But after hearing her sing on the track, called "Bossy," Ne-Yo says he and producer Stargate were so impressed that he called Lohan to say how sorry he was for not believing in her. "She did a ridiculously fabulous job," Ne-Yo tells the magazine. "I was so shocked I had to call her and apologize for what I was thinking because she did so good. I think the world is gonna be surprised."
Earlier this month Ne-Yo told People that he and Stargate approached the Lohan project "as a challenge. 'Can we make a song for Lindsay Lohan that people were gonna take seriously?' I think we did it," he said.
