Talking about his recent tour support’s chances on breaking America, Ne-Yo stated that Tulisa’s music was “good” but would need a few tweaks if she wanted to be successful in the States. Or in the UK.

However, he also claimed that the Sight Of You singer had the right attitude to make it across the pond. Talking to Heat magazine, Ne-Yo said:

Tulisa definitely has the attitude to break America.

I haven’t heard too much [of her music]. The stuff I have heard has been good – you know, there is always room for improvement.

Well, that’s a diss wrapped in a compliment if I ever heard one.

And she supported him on tour, why hasn’t he heard much of her music?

He then went on to say:

As far as her music goes she would have to some stuff that catered to the States.

Meanwhile, Tulisa is busy trying to make her next album sound more “urban” and cater it to UK audiences… slight contradiction there.
