Ne-Yo is apologizing to Lindsay Lohan for doubting her musical abilities before the two worked together on her forthcoming song, "Bossy."

"Miss Lindsay Lohan, I apologize if you are watching. I am sorry. There we go," Ne-Yo told E!'s Daily 10 in an interview set to air Tuesday.

"Straight up and down I thought it was gonna suck," the singer-songwriter said. "I was like, Lindsay Lohan are you joking? Are you serious? What the hell am I going to do for Lindsay Lohan? I took it as a challenge. And we put together a record for her."

"[It's a] quality record," Ne-Yo continued. "One that I didn't think she was going to be able to pull off. Again, I will admit that. Straight up and down. I had to eat my words. I tried to call her and apologize for the assumption."

Back in May, Ne-Yo described Lohan's singing as "ridiculously fabulous," and said he and producer Stargate had called Lohan to say how sorry he was for not believing in her.

"I think the world is gonna be surprised," he said.
