Pop and R&B star Ne-Yo says he's helping Beyonce put the finishing touches on her fifth studio album.

"I'm still putting stuff together for Beyonce's album," he said to Billboard Magazine. "They're still trying to figure out what they want that to be, which I'm not mad at. Beyonce's the kind of artist where you're not gonna see it till it's right. And her fans -- they love her so they'll be patient."

Beyonce has been working on her album since last summer when she had week-long writing sessions with Ryan Tedder, The-Dream, Greg Kurstin, Sia, and many others, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

A few song clips, "Grown Woman," "Standing On The Sun," and "Rise Up," have already been heard in commercials and soundtracks.

Beyonce and Ne-Yo last collaborated in 2007's hit song, "Irreplaceable."

Ne-Yo, apparently works well enough with Beyonce to also work with her husband Jay-Z on his next album.

"I went in, I did a session where I laid down a couple hooks but I have no idea what's going to be kept. I heard some of the new stuff. It's amazing. With Jay-Z it's hard not to be amazing," he told Billboard.

Ne-Yo sure knows how to keep busy. In addition to working on Jay-Z and Beyonce's album, he is writing with Celine Dion and recording his next album.

"I'm still writing for her," he told Billboard. "I just recently got a call to do some more songs, so I know she's doing some more work."

"I'm really excited about what's happening in R&B right now," Ne-Yo said in his interview. "I want to see what my place is in the whole thing. That's not to say I'm abandoning the EDM genre. I've gotten so much unimaginable love from that fanbase and that genre. It's really rare that an entire genre of music allows an artist from a different genre to come and live there. By no means am I abandoning that, but I definitely know I need to take care of my core -- the thing that got me here in the first place. I don't feel like I've given it the attention it deserves."
