R&B superstar Ne-Yo has been relatively quiet about his new album until recently. Following his performance at the Michael Jackson tribute concert in Wales last weekend, the crooner revealed the title of his new album. And it’s an interesting title, to say the least.

In a video interview with That Grape Juice, Ne-Yo announced that he was naming the album ‘The Cracks in Mr. Imperfect.’ Yeah, we’re scratching our heads at this title, as well.

“The album is based around, showing people that even thought I am a ‘celebrity,’ I’m a human being first,” he explains about the title. “I feel as an artist sometimes you are expected to be this perfect being for your fans. You’re not allowed to have a bad day, you’re not allowed not feel like smiling, you’re not allowed to get upset. I’m not this perfect guy, I’m a human being at the end of the day.”

That’s good to know, Ne-Yo. The singer hopes to drop the album in early 2012.

Elsewhere in the clip, Ne-Yo recalls his fondest memories of meeting Michael Jackson in New York before his untimely death. “He actually told me he was a fan of my music, which blew my mind,” he says. “Sitting with him and realizing that he’s this big, huge super megastar but he’s [also] a human being. He was a regular guy. There was nothing weird. No monkeys or animals … He’s just another guy who loves music the way I love music.”
