The Year of the Gentlemen won’t begin in June as expected; Def Jam announced yesterday that Ne-Yo’s third studio album won’t be released until August 5. However, with Closer making a move up the charts, all the talented singer/song-writer needs is an additional single that grabs the public’s attention. Auditioning to be that much-needed secondary single is the Jonathan “J.R.” Rotem-produced Trouble. On this up-tempo jam, the Las Vegas native sings about a girl who he knows is dangerous, but somehow cannot stay away from—in fact, he just wants her more and more. Following up the platinum-plus In My Own Words and Because of You, Ne-Yo’s Gentlemen has some lofty shoes to fill; is the singer in trouble?
