I still can’t believe that its 2009 and there are still Black “firsts” but that’s another post in itself. Ne-Yo’s newest song, ‘Never Knew I Needed,’ has been selected as the lead soundtrack single and featured end credit song for Walt Disney’s forthcoming ‘The Princess and the Frog‘ movie, arriving in theaters Dec. 11.
The animated comedy takes place in the great city of New Orleans. Starring a beautiful girl named Tiana and a frog prince who desperately wants to be human again. A kiss leads them through a hilarious adventure through the mystical bayous of Louisiana.
Despite seeing something absolutely wrong with taking this long for Disney to have a Black princess, I will be sure to see this when it comes out. Hey, I loved The Little Mermaid (same creators for this movie), so Disney isn’t that bad. And big props to Ne-Yo for doing his thing. He’s a great songwriter. Check out the new video below.
