Sign Me Up

Columbia Records signed Ne-Yo in 2000, but dropped him before he could release his already-recorded first album. However, the album's first single, "That Girl," was heard by Marques Houston, who re-recorded it and released it as a single in 2003. The song's success was Ne-Yo's first big triumph as a songwriter.
