Insisting it would be 'disrespectful' to hand the songs over to an artist outside the musical family, Ne-Yo thinks having Janet Jackson for the tribute is a great idea.

Ne-Yo is planning to recruit Janet Jackson to record music he wrote for her late brother Michael Jackson, insisting it would be "disrespectful" to hand the songs over to an artist outside the musical family. The King of Pop approached Ne-Yo to write him an album's worth of material shortly before he passed away last summer.

Jackson never had the opportunity to record the tracks but Ne-Yo still wants them to be heard by fans - and is hoping to give them to the superstar's siblings to sing. Ne-Yo tells Britain's Daily Star, "I've been trying to figure out what to do with those songs. I can't give them to anybody else because they were written for Michael. That would be disrespectful."

"So if I could get Janet and the brothers to do a collaborative tribute, that would be a great idea. There are about 10 he personally selected. He told me, 'I like this one, this one, this one.' I can't just put them out by myself because again they were meant for him but they're really good songs, it's good quality music."

I don't know if she will do the songs or not I hope she does it would be great to see her honor her brother by sing his songs. Whether she does it or not remains totally her decision. I think comments from her fans should be positive or not comment at all. I'm not sure if she reads these comments but as a fan aren't supposed to encourage her?

Michaels death is still a shock to the world. The thing to remember him is his music and physically, his family. Janet, honestly is the only sibling that has argueably shared nearlt or equal success as Michael. She and him are two icons in music and their brother and sister. Her and the brothers doing music would mean a great deal for all Michael and jackson family fans. Forget about ppl saying thier using Michael, thats their brother, and was his brother before he became what we know him ass.

Dawo, sounds like you're jealous that Janet is still the juice, if that really bothers you, than why are you posting a comment, so you must be interested in what she does. Plus, Janet hasn't said yes to anything. As far as her career, its just fine baby just fine, because unlike other artist Janet don't have to sing, she can act and she has a company, her book is going to drop and she is an executive producer. Plus, if she can do like all these other Divas and do commericals, sell perfume, sell clothes she could rake up even more money, but most Legends don't take that road until they retire, or desperate to keep the money coming in.

Nice idea but I don't think no MJ would get anything for it. But at least it would make Ne-Yo happy and those songs wouldn't be wasted:)

I AGREE WITH NE YO JANET SHOULD DO THE SONGS HE WROTE FOR MICHAEL AND I DON'T THINK SHE'S USING MJ FOR HER CAREER GOOD MOVE TO ME AND NO SHE'S NOT MICHAEL IT WILL NEVER BE ANOTHER SO WE KNOW THAT IT'S NOT GOING TO BE A MICHAEL RECORD BUT I'M SURE IT WILL BE VERY TASTEFUL

NeYo read my mind. I watched the Jacksons reality show and how they struggle to form their own band. I thought they lacked the lustre Mike had...though they are certainly all still fine and talented. they had no WOW factor. That's what made the image of Janet leading the group pop in my head. The chemistry woudl be awesome. I don't think i'd see the Jacksons...but now the Jacksons behind Janet...yes that's a winner.
