Biography

“While the words Passion, Pain and Pleasure immediately invoke sexual thoughts, for me they have become somewhat of a personal mantra because they so accurately describe this time in my life,” says Trey Songz. “The passion I have for my art fuels my drive and work ethic, while the sacrifice of my personal life to benefit my career will always be a source of pain.

This 20-year-old Virginian has the same mentality most other R&B artists have had in recent memory..."I gotta make it." Really, this can be applied to any music genre, but it seems like the R&B world suffers more than any of the other formats. It's almost heartbreaking when you think about the potentially long-term careers that could have been established from well deserving artists like Deborah Cox, Zhane, and Rahsaan Patterson. There are so many others like Will Downing, Dave Hollister, Kenny Lattimore, and Chante Moore that have had extensive careers but with little notoriety. Trey Songz hopes to break the mold and not fall into either category with his debut album I Gotta Make It.

Although a newcomer, Trey Songz has a lot of things working for him on this album. He enlists the help of Twista on his debut single "Gotta Make It" to give some definition to his style. He continues his love for R&B and Hip-Hop on the Scott Storch-assisted "All The Ifs In the World," the upbeat club song "Just Wanna Cut," and the track "Your Behind," a song penned by Donell Jones. When listening to the album, it actually sounds like a couple songs could have been written by or featured on an album by Donell Jones, namely "Hatin' Love" and "Kinda Lovin." But it's no secret who Trey's favorite artist is. When you listen to songs like "I Gotta Go," "From A Woman's Hand," or "Make Love Tonight," you'll feel like you're listening to an album by R Kelly. These two trends can become devastating to an artist trying to build up his own abilities of becoming a standout superstar.

Despite these comparisons, Trey still sings with conviction and does it well.

The Debut by Trey Songz was successful in my opinion. The trey that most people don't really know about on those Mixtapes is a little less radio friendly. This guy can sing, you can't take it away from him. I broke the album down like this....

1. Aretha Franklin (intro)

2. Just Gotta Make it 5/5 - everyone has heard this song, it comes on everyday all day on the radio. Nice song.

3. Cheat On You 4/5 - i like the way this song sounds. We always hear how females feel but for once a male r&b singer puts it out there that hey, females do dirt too, and it makes us wanna cheat sometimes. Good song in my opinion.

4. Gotta Go 3 1/2 out of 5 - this song is real laid back. It goes along with the mood of the cd. Nice song, just gotta listen to it.

5.Ooo 3 1/2 out of 5 - this song is different. when i first heard it, i thought it was pure garbage. But after while i began liking it. it's not that bad, but his second club song on the cd puts this one to shame.

6.All the If's 4/5 - this song is sweet. Once again trey sings about things you can relate to.

7. Ur Behind 4/5 - this song is hot to me. I like the beat, sounds like timbaland coulda produced it. Kinda like Trey's version of "Slow Down".

8.From a woman's hand - 2/5 i personally dont like this song and felt like this could have been left off the cd. It has a good message tho but i didn't care for it.

9.Kinda Lovin 3/5 average slow jam.

10.Comin for You 2/5 - didn't really like this song like that either. i keep skippin it. I can see it growing on me later on down the road though.

11.Just wanna cut (interlude)

12.Just Wanna Cut 6 /5 Thats right ! 6 out of 5 ! This song is FIRE ! I like it better than just gotta make it.

Trey, did the back-up for twista's song 'girl tonight' and i took a risk and brought his album because i thought his voice was kinda cool. However, i was pleasently suprised by the album, the balance between hip hop, slow r&b and music you'd hear in a club is exceptional, 'kinda lovin' number 9 on the album is my personal favourite, i'd simply say this album is perfect for all types of music listeners, i dont think he could have made a better debut album!!!!!!

Trey Songz is like a breath of fresh air! This has been a horrible year. Everywhere I turned, I was been subjected to oversexed guys talking about stuff that had no substance. After hearing Pretty Ricky's "Grind on Me" and Omarion's "O" (to name a few) I was convinced that the whole R&B world had gone to hell in a handbasket. Now enter Trey Songz. When I listen to his CD, I have to stop whatever I'm doing and just sit still. He has an amazing voice and his lyrics are great.

Trey is not into all of that "Let me flash my muscles and dance all freaky to get the ladies attention". His voice speaks for him and well- he has my attention. Did I mention that he wrote every song on the album?

He has a song on here for everyone. He even has a song dedicated to all of the single mothers out there who are raising their kids by themselves. The song (From a woman's hand) is dedicated to his mom (her name is April like me), his grandma and aunt.

My top 5:
1.Coming for you
2.Cheat on you
3.Gotta Go
4.All the if's
5.Kinda lovin

You can listen to this CD all the way through. This is definitely a CD that all R&B fans should go out and get. You won't regret it!
