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.

Editorial Reviews

'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. The pleasure that I derive from my work and my accomplishments make everything worth it. When I began conceptualizing the new album, these three words stuck in my head. They completely infiltrated my creative process, so it was inevitable that they became the album title.'

'PASSION, PAIN & PLEASURE' is Songz' hugely anticipated follow-up to 2009s RIAA gold-certified smash, 'READY.' From the bouncy first single, 'Bottoms Up (Feat. Nicki Minaj)' to the driving, rock-infused 'Blind,' the new album sees the Virginia-based R&B superstar energized and evolving as he continues to refine his mastery of of sultry, soulful song-craft.

'This album is a step closer to me recording without inhibitions,' says Songz. 'It embodies the best parts of 'READY' with the heart of 'ANTICIPATION' and the originality of 'I GOTTA MAKE IT.''

Songz enlisted a company of gifted producers to accompany him on his artistic journey, including Bei Maejor, Tha Bizness, Mario Winans, Mark Jackson, Kane Beatz and, of course, his longtime production partner, Songbook Entertainment founder Troy Taylor. As ever, Trey displays effortless vocal dexterity while simultaneously relaying complex emotional depth and power. The throbbing, minimalist 'Can't Be Friends' and the classic R&B romance of 'Please Return My Call' reveal reflective and introspective themes of love and human relations, stressing the sensual above the overtly sexual.

'This is the album where I talk to the people who think all I can sing about is sex,' says Songz. 'I take a step further out of that realm, although I do keep one foot in.'

'PASSION, PAIN & PLEASURE' marks Songz' first new release since making the transition from rapidly rising young artist to bonafide R&B superstar. 'READY' was a true breakthrough, giving Trey his first-ever Billboard 200 Top Ten debut on its way to RIAA gold certification. Fueled by an infinite streak of hit singles including 'I Need A Girl,' 'LOL :-) (Feat. Gucci Mane and Soulja Boy Tell 'Em),' 'Successful (Drake & Trey Songz),' 'I Invented Sex,' 'Neighbors Know My Name,' and 'Say Aah.' 'READY' received a Grammy Award nomination for 'Best Contemporary R&B Album.'

An assortment of major awards followed, including the prestigious title of 'Best Male R&B Artist' at the 2010 BET Awards. That triumph capped an extraordinary year that included touring as both headliner and special guest on Jay-Z's massive 'BP3 Tour 2010,' numerous TV appearances, and star-studded recording sessions like Lionel Richie and Quincy Jones' new version of 'We Are The World,' benefiting Haitian earthquake relief organizations. All that and more was documented in Trey's hugely popular docu-series, 'My Moment.' An unqualified ratings sensation, the 10-part BET documentary provided an exclusive window into Songz' life and career, chronicling everything up to and including the making of the new album.

The late, great Atlantic Records founder Ahmet Ertegun once declared Trey to be 'among the most promising R&B artists we have had on Atlantic since we started the company 60 years ago.' That promise long fulfilled, 'PASSION, PAIN & PLEASURE' now confidently confirms Trey Songz' rightful place at the very forefront of contemporary urban music.

'I've had three albums before this, but only one was really a hit,' he says. 'This album will show that I'm not going anywhere.'

If you are a true Trey Songz fan then you will absolutely LOVE this album and if you are not then you will still love this album. Of course the album contains tracks Bottoms Up and Cant Be Friends but there are so many well written tracks on this CD! For Starters I purchased the DVD/CD combo from Target. The DVD/CD combo has him performing his songs from Ready to about 30 people. It's a very intimate setting. The DVD is about 30 minutes. I highly recommend getting that version because it's the Deluxe version and it's only available at Target but regardless, I would definitely get this album no matter where you get it because it's that hot. Trey Songz is so talented and you can tell by this album that he's growing as an artist. I didn't have his album Ready but purchased many of the Mp3's. I went back out and purchased Ready because of this album. That's how nice the album is. You will not be disappointed at all. It's one of his best! I especially LOVE the Passion, Pleasure and Pain interludes. My favorite songs on the album are Love Faces, Massage, Bottoms Up, Can't Be Friends, Unusual (feat. Drake), Made to Be Together and Love Me Better. I haven't always been a Trey Songz fan, but I'm surely am now:)

Trey Songz has finally established his name in the R&B game, he has become a sex symbol in every sense and people are now getting to know Trey Songz betetr as an artist. His third album Ready was needless to say his BEST album or magnum opus. Ready was such a surprise which made it less of a hype which made me love it even more. The production on Ready was amzing and well thought out and Treys variety was spot on. However, while this new album isn't a bad one, it really can't compare to the previous album. Passion, Pain & Pleasure is a concept that showcases all the emotions of love in Treys eyes, which is a good concept but falls short. I like about half of the songs on the album, but the other half has yet to fully grasp me, to me this is an album that doesn't get you right away but can learn to love later on.

1) Here We Go Again (Interlude) - A terrible start to the album. I mean this is not a good way to start an "R&B" album. Panty Droppa was a sick intro to Ready but this intro gives you an idea of what Trey's mentality with this album is. It's too Hip Hop. 0/5

2) Love Faces - This should have started the album just fine instead of the stupid interlude. Trey is back with his horny self and gets straight to the sex. The melody is nice and sensual. Trey's vocals has improved and you can tell with this song. The song is about "in the moment" sex and is perfect Baby making music. 4/5

3) Massage - Trey has been highly compared to R. Kelly throughout the years and this song is a perfect example of why that remains to be said. This song is vintage R. Kelly and Treys voice is wayyy too similar to R. Kelly with this joint. I love the beat to this song, its very relaxing and can take you to other wordly places if you let it.

I was really looking forward to this album even though his now classic "Ready" album was released last year, but I have to say I was thoroughly disappointed. Trey is a true talent but I think his head is getting to big!!!! This album was obviously rushed to capitalized on the success of his last album. He needs to take some time off then come back harder if he wants to have longevity in this business!!! Only standout tracks are unusual, doorbell, and blind!!!!!

I was apprehensive about listening to this album because I know how much I hated the last one he made. I mean, there were some highlights (the songs released to the radio) but the rest of the album was just about sex and that is a turn off for me. I like sex like the next person, but there has to be something else to sing about, right? So I saw this one in my Zune Marketplace and I though, heck, why not download it and sync it to my Zune and listen to it as I make my way to work (I take the bus, a lot of time to get the whole album in). So I found that I was not skipping songs! That is rare these days because there is a lot of trash being released (Linkin Park "A Thousand Suns"; that review is coming after this one). My favorite, the one that is repeating for me over and over again, is "Unfortunate". That was a 10 out of 10. The entire album for me averages 9.5 out of 10 which is really fantastic. It's listenable, the lyrics are not simple and annoying, and the beats are good. Does not sound low budget. If you like a nice R&B album, something that is going to become an instant classic, then pick up this album. And if you are apprehensive about buying music, then get the Zune Marketplace and pay 14.99 a month. If you want to know how to sync Zune music to your Ipod, then reply to this review with an email address and I will tell you. I am not downing Itunes, but Zune lets you hear albums, not 30 sec. snippets. Buy this album, you will never be sorry!!
