Trey Songz is an R&B and Hip Hop superstar. His music is a mix of big beats, sparse musical accompaniment, and smooth vocals. Trey is a definitely a lover and not a fighter. Most of his songs are of the romantic nature. You don’t really dance, sing-a-long, or play air guitar to Trey’s songs. You do that other “thing” you can do while listening to his music. Needless to say, his lyrics are quite mature.
Trey released his debut album, I Gotta Make It, in July of 2005. The album contained guest appearances by Aretha Franklin, T.I., and Juvenile.
His follow-up dropped in October of 2007 after a five-month delay. The delay was caused by the poor performance of the album’s first single, “Wonder Woman.” It failed to chart on the Hot 100.
Another single was then released, “Can’t Help But Wait.” That track peaked at number #14. Thanks to its success, his second album, Trey Day, dropped and entered the charts at number 11.
Trey’s third album, Ready, came out in 2009. That was followed by Passion, Pain & Pleasure in 2010, Chapter V in 2012, and Trigga in 2014. All four of those works peaked inside the top five of the Billboard 200 with the last two going all the way to number one.
Trey’s first headlining tour was launched in 2010. In 2012, he collected Trey Songz tickets in 19 North American cities as part of his “Anticipation 2our.” Trey has toured with Chris Brown, Miguel, Tyga, and Elle Varner. He has opened for Jay-Z, Usher, and Nicki Minaj.
Trey Songz was born Nov. 28, 1984 in Petersburg, Virginia. His mother was 17 at the time. The singer’s real name is Tremaine Aldon Neverson. Trey didn’t start singing until he was 14 years old. Shyness kept him away from the microphone.
Trey’s big break came when an appearance at a talent show was seen by a record producer. That meeting eventually led to a recording contract.
Trey has been nominated for three Grammy Awards.
