I say I'm not a hater but I hate to see you shine
Especially if your shine is outshining mine
Another paradox in Ne-Yo’s life. Like the previous line he claims to be something and he’d like to think that’s true but its not always. He claims to not be a general “hater” but he hates it when he sees other people be more successful than him. Again it’s only human so fair play Ne-Yo for your honesty.
