Ne-Yo Records with Celine Dion

Celine Dion and Ne-Yo

Ne-Yo has recorded a duet with Celine Dion. The "Closer" hitmaker had a "surreal" time in the studio with the "My Heart Will Go On" star and admitted though he was flattered she wanted his vocals on the track, it made him doubt his abilities as a singer.

"The first time I worked for her I wrote a song for her, which in itself was surreal. This time around I actually did a duet with her - it's her and me on one song, which was a challenge to say the least! I was trying to figure what I was even doing there - why would they need my voice when they have hers? She wanted to do the song as a duet and I was flattered, but it definitely made me question my vocal ability," he said.

"There is a list a mile long of people I want to work with, I just don't have the time. But top of that list right now is definitely Adele. I think she's pregnant right now so she's got some time away, but Adele, as soon as you get done having babies and doing all that then let me know, we need to get in the studio."

"What do I like most about the UK? The weather! No, no, I like the vibe out here. It's a really cool vibe. I really like Plan B or Amy Winehouse and Adele."
