Ne-Yo and his wife of 3 years, Crystal Smith reportedly split

Published

on

Singer Ne-Yo (real name Shaffer Chimere Smith) and his wife Crystal Renay Smith are allegedly splitting up after nearly four years of marriage.

According to The Jasmine Brand, Crystal is the one who pulled the plug on the relationship. No details have emerged as to what caused their breakup, but they reportedly haven’t been seeing eye to eye for quite some time. Sources say Crystal will be filing for divorce very soon because “she’s had enough.”

Adding fuel to the fire is a recently released video of Ne-Yo partying to a track called “Pinky Ring” in which he claims, “she gave back the wedding ring, I turned it to a pinky ring.” True to the song’s lyrics, the 40-year-old artist is seen flashing a diamond wedding band on his pinky finger. The shade of it all

Crystal responded with a video of her own. Filmed with her friend Shod Santiago, the besties appear to be mocking Ne-Yo. Crystal is heard asking her friend if he will be her date for Valentine’s Day.

Ne-Yo and Crystal first met in 2015, and sparks flew immediately. “I initially met Crystal on what initially was supposed to be a music video,” he told VIBE Magazine in 2018. “I wanted to shoot a little video for the album I was putting out at the time. I was going to cast her, but in the process of us talking and getting to know each other, there was a click, there was a connection.”

The couple tied the knot in February 2016 and went on to have two sons: four-year-old, Shaffer Chimere Smith, Jr., and two-year-old, Roman Alexander-Raj Smith. The singer initially faced backlash from fans for marrying Crystal and never proposing to his previous girlfriend of four years Monyetta Shaw (Ne-Yo and Shaw have two children together, and Shaw has claimed her ex was unfaithful in their relationship.) Thankfully, everyone gets along while co-parenting.

The Smith’s alleged split comes just ahead of their four-year wedding anniversary. Neither party has made an official statement as of yet.

Nardo Wick recruits Lil Durk, 21 Savage & G Herbo for “Who Want Smoke??”

Published

on

Nardo Wick has just dropped the highly-anticipated new version of his smash-hit “Who Want Smoke??” featuring Lil Durk, 21 Savage, & G Herbo. The track includes a show-stopping verse from Durk, displaying the depths of his fiery and confrontational style, a noteworthy inclusion from 21 Savage reminiscent of his earliest days on the mic, and G Herbo delivering the thrilling and seasoned bars he’s renowned for. The song not only capitalizes on the virality of “Who Want Smoke?”, but also serves as a masterclass in collaborating from some of the most prominent artists in the game. Each verse builds on the next, with the superstar additions sticking to theme that Nardo laid out on the original “Who Want Smoke?”, signaling the unwavering faith that Durk, 21, and Herb have in the 19-year old Jacksonville emcee. This collaboration comes on the heels of Durk & Lil Babybringing Nardo to perform the viral record at their tour stop in Orlando, receiving an electrifying response from the Floridan crowd. Though the original song has already amassed a whopping 60 million streams and counting, these carefully curated contributions only further solidify “Who Want Smoke??” as one of the biggest records of the year.

“This next chapter of my career is to give every project I work on my full attention. If I want to be proud of all the videos I work on, then I must never rush the process. I want it to be a great viewing experience every time. The goal is to create timeless quality art that inspires and motivates me, and hopefully it can inspire and motivate those beyond me as well. I view the “Who Want Smoke??” video as the opening page of this new chapter.”
Cole Bennett

Nardo Wick bursted onto the scene in mid-2020 with a string of releases, including “Lolli”, “Slide”, and “Came Up.” Music gave the shy teen an outlet to channel his angst and was accompanied by a fast-following. Though he’s soft-spoken off the mic, when Nardo enters the booth, the raps he produces are dynamic and haunting––a reflection of Jacksonville’s turbulent hip-hop scene. In 2021, Wick transitioned from making buzzing records to inescapable anthems. “Who Want Smoke?” became a widespread hit, achieving over 60 million streams as well as placements on Rap Caviar and Hip Hop Hits. The song reflected a menacing teen with a no-nonsense approach to life and music balancing between being captivating and fearsome. “Who Want Smoke?” is a frequent soundtrack to viral content on social media, with the most recent inclusion being Florida A&M’s marching band, the Marching 100, doing a live-rendition of the hit song during the halftime show for their game against Alabama State University. Hit-producer Cardo Got Wings laced Nardo for a last-minute request to appear on February’s Judas And The Black Messiah: The Inspired Album. That album topped the charts upon release, putting Nardo Wick alongside the biggest stars of Hip-Hop and R&B. Wick followed this with the Nick Mira-produced “Pull Up” in July. In August, Nardo released “I Be Chillin”, an exciting addition to his growing discography. Throughout the run, the budding rapper has received praise from Passion of the Weiss, Lyrical Lemonade, and DJ Booth, who included him in a recent “10 Rappers You Should Know Right Now” list. Recently COMPLEXnamed Nardo among their list of “Best Jacksonville Rappers.”
