Ne Yo plays Rock in Rio Lisboa in Portugal 2024

The author of hits that marked the R&B / Pop playlists of the 2000s, such as “So Sick”, “Closer” and “Miss Independent”, NE-YO makes his debut at Rock in Rio Lisbon.

A three-time GRAMMY® winner and true R&B icon, NE-YO has more than 23 billion streams worldwide. His debut single, “So Sick”, released in 2005, reached number one on the Billboard Hot 100 and was certified four Platinum discs. Since then, the Motown Records/Compound Entertainment artist has been collecting hits on a global scale that have marked the R&B/Pop playlists of the 2000s, such as “Sexy Love”, “Closer”, “Because of You”, “Miss Independent” and “Push Back” [feat Bebe Rexha and Stefflon Don]”.


Besides making magic in the studio and on stage, NE-YO is also a brilliant hit songwriter. Songs like “Unfaithful”, “Russian Roulette” and “Take a Bow”, which he wrote for Rihanna, and “Irreplaceable”, for Beyoncé, have become worldwide hits. With a breathtaking voice and presence and an undeniable mystique when it comes to expressing himself with pen and paper, NE-YO has composed for artists as big as Jennifer Hudson, Usher, Carrie Underwood and Celine Dion.

The American R&B phenomenon has also made a name for himself as an entrepreneur, humanitarian and actor, with appearances in series and films such as Netflix’s “Dance Monsters”, “Empire” and “Step Up: High Water”. On  June 23rd, however, he will be on stage to show why he is considered a complete artist. The festival’s 20th-anniversary edition is expected to feature not only the hits that made him an R&B legend in the 2000s, but also more recent works, such as “Self Explanatory”, Ne-Yo’s eighth studio album, released in 2022.

The final day of the 20th anniversary edition of Rock in Rio Lisboa already features performances by DOJA CAT, CAMILA CABELLO and NE-YO on the Mundo Stage and LUÍSA SONZA and PEDRO SAMPAIO on the Galp Stage. It’s going to be 12 hours of great music, surprises, emotions and excitement. Join the celebration, because 20 years of Rock in Rio Lisboa can only be experienced once!
