Ne-Yo is planning to give Janet Jackson music he wrote for her late brother Michael, insisting it would be "disrespectful" to hand the songs to an artist outside the Jackson family.
The King of Pop approached Ne-Yo to write him an album's worth of material shortly before he passed away last summer (Jun09).
Michael Jackson never had the opportunity to record the tracks but Ne-Yo still wants them to be heard by fans - and is hoping to give them to the superstar's siblings to sing.
Ne-Yo tells Britain's Daily Star, "I've been trying to figure out what to do with those songs. I can't give them to anybody else because they were written for Michael. That would be disrespectful.
"So if I could get Janet and the brothers to do a collaborative tribute, that would be a great idea.
"There are about 10 he personally selected. He told me, 'I like this one, this one, this one.' I can't just put them out by myself because again they were meant for him but they're really good songs, it's good quality music."
