Two generations of modern R&B stars will take over Mad on Yas Island this weekend.
The Abu Dhabi super-club has announced that Usher will perform the race day show on Sunday December 1, while Ne-Yo will take to the stage on Saturday, November 30.
If you take in both shows together, you will be able to trace a clear line between both artists.
While Ne-Yo is only one year younger than Usher his brand of R&B is undoubtedly inspired by Usher and his peers, Ne-Yo went on to fashion his own sound that’s agile enough to straddle various other strands of pop music.
Mad on Yas Island Abu Dhabi Race Weekend features Ne-Yo on Saturday, November 30 and Usher on Sunday.
