Make This Work

Ne-Yo's fame reached a whole new level of success when he wrote Mario's 2004 chart-topper "Let Me Love You." The song not only led to Ne-Yo penning hits for Beyoncé, Rihanna and Chris Brown — it also helped land him his own deal as a recording artist with Def Jam, where Jay-Z, then the label's head, signed him.
