8 Things You Need To Know About Ne-Yo's R.E.D. Album
"Cracks In Mr. Perfect"
"Word to Tupac, this is some of the realest s**t I ever wrote," Ne-Yo prefaced before he played this song. This record, which he says draws from many real life experiences is about the struggles of keeping up the appearance of what is perceived to be a "perfect life." He speaks about how quickly he'll run through upwards of $20,000 in one night just to seem "perfect," when he knows he's far from it.
"In reality, it's the imperfections that truly make us perfect," Ne-Yo says in a monologue towards the end of the song, right before he introduces the album.
