Now we do love Conor Maynard and he can sing very well, but even if Ne-Yo himself tells you, you can sing better than him, he’s probably lying.

The 19-year-old told MTV news that Ne-Yo loved his cover of Beautiful Monster so much that he wanted to sign him as he thought Conor done a better job.

[Ne-Yo] told a story where one of his friends called him [like] ‘Yo man, isn’t this kid singing ‘Beautiful Monster’ better than you singing it? He was a bit like ‘Ah, no, I’ll check that out.’ And he was like ‘Oh, damn, this does sing better than me.

Well we’re not gonna call Conor a liar, so if he says Ne-Yo called him the better singer, then we guess we have to take his word for it!

Conor received a personal call from Ne-Yo, who immediately signed him adding:

I remember when I first got that phone call, it was from someone who claimed to be his manager… I just didn’t want to get out to America and then, you know, have one of my friends calling from my hometown go ‘It was me, got ya’.

So I had to make sure. Sure enough, I was sitting on Skype with Ne-Yo about 1:30 a.m., talking about music and him wanting to sign me

Lucky for some eh. I’m still waiting for the day when Beyonce sees my Single Ladies cover and signs me…
