Editorial Reviews

Chapter V is the highly-anticipated fifth studio album from R&B superstar Trey Songz and the follow up to his 2010 album Passion, Pain & Pleasure, which featured the multi-platinum hit "Bottoms Up (feat. Nicki Minaj)"" and the #1 single ""Can't Be Friends," Songz' 2012 collection features the hit singles "Heart Attack" and "2 Reasons (feat. T.I.)."

Songz is a Grammy-nominated, multi-faceted singer-songwriter, rapper, producer and actor who the late Ahmet Ertegun proclaimed to be "among the most promising R&B artists we have had on Atlantic since we started the company 60 years ago." Songz released his debut album I Gotta Make It in 2005 which featured the hit "Can't Help But Wait," and was followed by Trey Day in 2007. 2009's Gold-certified album Ready, which featured such hits as the club friendly, Fabolous-assisted, "Say Aah" and the sultry "Invented Sex," proved that Trey wasn't slowing down anytime soon and solidified his place as a permanent fixture in R&B music.

In 2010, Songz founded the "Angels With Heart Foundation," which started as a call to arms, to engage his fan club, Trey's Angels, and has since turned into a worldwide movement. Trey encourages members of Trey's Angels to give back and have a positive impact in their neighborhood through community service, supporting local charities and random acts of kindness.

Chapter V sees the Virginia-based R&B superstar energized and evolving as he continues to refine his mastery of sultry, soulful song craft.

Format: Audio CD
R&B singer Trey Songz releases his fifth studio effort, 2012's Chapter V as a follow up to 2010's Passion, Pain & Pleasure. The artist continues in a sensual and sometimes salacious direction on Chapter V, highly inspired by his idol, R. Kelly. Songz doesn't tread too far from the formula of his most recent albums, though that doesn't impair Chapter V's consistency in the least.

The intro, titled "Chapter V" sets the tone of the effort. "Dive In" starts the effort strongly, given its slow tempo and sensual sensibilities. Songz does little to differentiate this from say "Neighbors Know My Name" or similarly veined cuts, but `if it ain't broke, don't fix it' is not a bad adherence here. The salacious "Panty Wetter" proceeds, finding Songz sounding edgy and emulating R. Kelly both thematically and vocally. Risqué without being too raw, Trey controls himself.

"Heart Attack," the promo single co-penned by R&B hit-maker Rico Love, is a highlight. Characterized by big drums and a hint of synths, Songz sounds exceptional overall: "In too deep, can't think about giving it up/but I never knew, love would feel like a heart attack/It's killing me, swear I never cried so much/cause I never knew love would hurt this bad..."
"Playin Hard" finds Songz returning to his days as an MC. A bit odd and even clunky at first, 
"Playin' Hard" eventually unfurls its magic. The production serves as a sound backdrop for Songz's `spitting' and `crooning,' though falls short of the glory of "Dive In" or "Heart Attack."

"2 Reasons" is a "Bottoms Up" remake, though a downgrade at best.

You get what you pay for; I'll say that much.

LOL; I honestly have no clue when this guy is going to figure out that even his most diehard fans are tired of repetitive sex songs. I really don't see him ever topping 'Ready' and definitely not his debut album (I have his first; it is vastly underrated and actually had some substance behind it -- not to mention very few people were checking for him as he had braids when they were beginning to become played out and was pitifully scrawny). Still -- here are the standouts, for me:

-Playin' Hard
-Don't Be Scared
-Pretty Girl's Lie
-Bad Decisions
-Forever Yours
-Fumble

this is my least favorite CD and I got them all. he took us in a direction that is ridiculously so far away from love music. I originally got the explicit version which I could not tolerate the p word, n word, f word in Love music?? I hate that this mess went to number 1 and it was on the strength of his fans buying it sight unheard. he is cocky and comfortable and it shows in his music, interviews, etc. the only good thing is the 1-2 CLEAN love songs. I should have only bought singles.

Granted, while I'm proud of Trey Songz for scoring a #1 album on the Billboard Top-200, this album has to be my least favorite of his. The album has high points, Trey continues his traditional sexy sound with songs like: Dive In, Panty Wetter, and Heart Attack. There are songs on the album like that deal with personal pain/failed love: Fumble (my fav), Bad Decisions, Without A Woman, and Pretty Girl's Lie are promising tracks. The only negative, when I listened to 'Ladies Go Wild' -- I heard this electronic-dance sound coming through my speakers. Not to say electronic-pop is bad, but there are certain artists and genres who should leave it to other artists to mess with. The reason why I loathe it is because other favorites of mine--Usher and Chris Brown--have made their home too much in that sound, which have somewhat made them abandon their R&B roots (hope Trey isn't following the same path). Overall the album mixed in my book. The lyrical content isn't as strong as 'Ready' or 'PP&P'. Trey's voice is still pretty good as usual and makes several of the songs work in his favor because of it. The features with T.I., Young Jeezy, Rick Ross, and Lil Wayne are favorable.

Rating - 3.5/5.0

I really can't put my finger on it but this album did not have the same feel as his others. As an artist I love his style, love his nice flowing slow songs but I couldn't find any on this one that grabbed me like his previous albums. Even his mixtapes had awesome tracks on them that I loved. I will give the album another listen, then go back to his other classic albums. I guess you could say I am a little dissapointed cause he had set the bar so high in his previous outings.

This is a good R&B album, ever since I heard the song Heart Attack this album was highly anticipated by me and it did not disappoint. Not every single song on this cd is perfect but the songs that are perfect make this album worth every penny of the $9.99 that I spent when I purchased it at Target the day it came out. I miss this kind of R&B, to me Trey makes the type of music that Usher used to make back in the late 90's/early 00's when he was really awesome. Songs like Panty Wetter, Dive In, and Pretty Girls Lie are where Trey is at his best. He also enlists the King of the South T.I. on the song 2 Reasons and Young Jeezy and Lil Wayne ride with him on the track Hail Mary, The Boss Rick Ross is on the track Don't Be Scared and Diddy and Meek Mill are on the club song titled Check Me Out(which happens to be one of my least fav on the album). Trey is the man when he sticks to his formula of sexually themed lyrics it works for him and he should stick with that but he is also really good when he pours emotion onto the track with songs like Heart Attack and Simply Amazing. In my opinion this is a good follow-up to his previous album Passion,Pleasure and Pain and I am not disappointed with my choice to buy it. If u luv excellent R&B then this is definitely worth checking out, Treys voice is so smooth and nobody makes R&B music like he can right now. Enjoy the album.
