When Fabolous first signed with Desert Storm, he was joined by a new R&B artist, Mike Shorey. DJ Clue tried his hardest to make the two into the next rap/R&B duo. The two created a few hits, but they never did break into the mainstream.
DJ Clue has been trying to build Desert Storm for years, but the label has not grown outside of Fabolous. Because of this, Clue has focused solely on Fabolous. When he made the move to Def Jam it was to make it easier for Fabolous to work with his associates.
The first move made was pairing Fabolous and Ne-Yo. At the start, the two made a hit with "Make Me Better." Fabolous made his first performance at the BET Awards with the song. He promised more music in the future with Ne-Yo.
In 2008, the two recorded with Jamie Foxx for his hit, "She Got Her Own" and their popularity soared because of the hit. Fabolous then announced he and Ne-Yo were going to unite for a best of both worlds-type collaboration album. Their album was supposed to come out sometime following the release of the solo album from Fabolous. The album has yet to surface and Fabolous is preparing for the release of his next solo album.
For the fans who have been following the news about the album, Fabolous said it is still in the workings. He plans to have the album ready for release sometime before the end of this year.
