In January 2012, NE-YO was also named Senior Vice President of A&R for Motown, working alongside Barry Weiss, Chairman & CEO of Universal Republic and Island Def Jam Motown.

"Miss Independent" went on to win Grammy Awards(R) for Best R&B Song (song writers award) and Best Male R&B Vocal Performance.

After taking the music scene by storm in 1994 with the arrival of their album Dookie, Green Day has continued to top the charts with the subsequent studio albums Insomniac, Nimrod, and Warning, while entertaining millions of fans with their frenetic live shows. Their landmark 2004 album AmericanIdiot launched Green Day into the stratosphere, debuting at No. 1 on the Billboard chart and leading to five hit singles, before earning seven Grammy(R) nominations (winning two, including Best Rock Album). Their album 21st Century Breakdown won a 2010 Grammy(R) Award for Best Rock Album and spawned two hit singles: the gold "Know Your Enemy," and the double-platinum "21 Guns," which earned them three 2009 MTV Video Music Awards including Best Rock Video.
