Ne-Yo is desperate to work with Adele.
The 'Let Me Love You' hitmaker wants to get in the studio with the pregnant 'Someone Like You' singer when she is "done having babies" and insists she is at the very top of a huge list of musicians he would love to work with in his career.
He exclusively told BANG Showbiz: "There is a list a mile long of people I want to work with, I just don't have the time. But top of that list right now is definitely Adele. I think she's pregnant right now so she's got some time away, but Adele, as soon as you get done having babies and doing all that then let me know, we need to get in the studio."
The 29-year-old singer teams up with a number of artists on his upcoming album 'RED' - which stands for 'Realising Every Dream' - including country singer Tim McGraw and he is particularly keen for fans to hear their collaboration on the record.
He added: "There's a couple of good collaborations, we got Wiz Khalifa, Fabolous, Diddy and we got Tim McGraw on the album. That one is really interesting, check out for that one, it's a song called 'She Is'.
"This record is a perfect blend of R&B music and pop music. I have the American fans edging on the side of pop and dance and all of that so I had to make sure I included something for that fan base, but at the same time my R&B fans have always been there for me and I can never ever abandon them. So I just had to make sure this album was balanced out right."
