Ne-Yo on VH1's 'Behind the Music': Remembering his interactions with Michael Jackson -- EXCLUSIVE VIDEO

Ne-Yo has made no secret of the fact that he had been collaborating with Michael Jackson when he died in 2009. But in the newest episode of VH1’s Behind the Music — which premieres Sunday, Sept. 23, at 9 p.m. — he delves deeper into how they met and the work they produced. EW has an exclusive clip of that recollection.

In the clip — which you can find below — Ne-Yo recalls that in the spring of 2009, Jackson reached out to him but he hung up the phone, thinking it was a prank call. “I figured it was somebody playin’,” he remembers.

After Jackson called back, he remembers, “we met up in New York, then he smiles and gave me a big hug, and says, ‘You know what my favorite song of yours is? [singing] Please don’t worry about me, I’m fine,'” Ne-Yo says in the clip. “He started singing my damn song [‘Go On, Girl].’ I almost lost it at that point. I maintained, but inside, I was jumping around like a six-year-old girl. It was bad. It was really, really bad.”
