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

Since making his recording debut in 2005, Trey Songz has patiently and artfully crafted some of the most acclaimed and compelling R&B music of the decade. His first two Songbook Entertainment/Atlantic albums, 'I GOTTA MAKE IT' (2005) and 'TREY DAY' (2007), yielded a trio of top ten singles, 'Girl Tonight,' 'Last Time,' and 'Can't Help But Wait.' And when the latter song garnered Trey a coveted Grammy nomination for Best Male R&B Vocal Performance, it marked the validation of the faith shown in Trey by the late Atlantic Records founder Ahmet Ertegun, who hailed him as one of 'the most promising R&B artists we have had since we started the company 60 years ago.' Now, with the 2009 release of 'READY,' Trey Songz is more than ready to claim his place in the pantheon of R&B greats.
From the street single, 'Brand New,' to his self-described male version of Mary J. Blige's 'Be Without You' in 'One Love,' the Virginian draws on a range of influences to craft an album that will thrill his longtime fans and happily surprise all newcomers to the Trey Songz story. Indeed, with its blend of hip-hop, R&B, and pop - exemplified by tracks like 'Black Roses,' where Trey croons over a distorted guitar - 'READY' demonstrates his growth on every front. The third time around, Trey displays a new vocal maturity combined with his renowned ability to twist notes and keys effortlessly, while presenting an increasing breadth of subject matter.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fine R&B Album September 5, 2009
Format:Audio CD
Trey Songz has never received his just due. Arriving at a time where other male R&B artists were blowing up with reasonable or great success (Chris Brown most notably), it seemed as if Trey Songz's fine I Gotta Make It went unnoticed. This is most sad as Trey Songz has an exceptional, well-nuanced voice that competes with the best of them. I GOTTA MAKE IT was a good, new/old-timey urban album with solid production and overall strong songwriting. It debuted at #20 on the Billboard Album Charts and tanked. 2007's Trey Day showcased a better showing (#11, 73,000 copies), though even the incredibly commercial "Can't Help But Wait" couldn't propel the singer to gold sales. Hopefully 2009's great and well produced Ready will help to propel a talent such as Trey Songz to the level of commercial success he should have already been receiving. If quality were the only indicator and not economy, Trey Songz could easily have a platinum album with this excellent third showing, arguably his best.

The album opens up with "Panty Dropper (Intro)", which prepares the listener to what ends up being Songz's most sensual, sexualized album. Despite this theme, Trey never goes over the edge like say R. Kelly at his most sensual, which means that the album is generally in good taste even though it is risque subject matter. "Neighbor's Know My Name" is an excellent first song - sensual, urban in sound, and well written. It's a song that R. Kelly would've taken to the next level (in a more twisted way that is) and Trey Songz does a phenomenal job with it.

Trey Songz is one of those artists that I was surprised had actual albums -- not that he isn't good, but usually male R&B crooners that spend most of their early career singing the choruses to rap songs don't actually get to release any of their own stuff (Rell, anyone?). I always planned on listening to some of Trey's albums but I never got around to it until recently, and now I picked up his latest album, Ready.

There are a lot of good songs to find on here, like "I Need a Girl", "I Invented Sex" and "Successful" (although as usual, Drake sounds like he's talking rather than rapping). "Yo Side of the Bed" (which isn't what you might think it's about; more on that in a minute) is pretty decent too. In fact, very few songs are fast-forwardable, so why only 3-1/2 stars? Well, it's like what my brother asked when he reviewed Silk's album Tonight: how many ways can you say "freak me, baby"? Yeah, I'm sure most of the ladies have no complaints, but come on, man; you have a good voice; change up the subject matter a bit!

And a few songs like that are skippable. "Scratchin' Me Up" (one of the three tracks on the deluxe edition) doesn't feel right somehow, and "Does He Do It" suffers from a repetitive and unimaginative chorus. "Say Aah" is a mindless club track, and "LOL :)" never should have happened. Ready is still a solid album; your best bet, though, is to play it when you and your partner want some "special" time.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not safe for kids - Otherwise AWESOME September 10, 2009
Format:Audio CD
This is the best CD I've purchased in a long time. I took a road trip over the Labor Day weekend and this was a wonderful CD to travel to.

I only have one issue... Some of the content is very, very sensual (which i really liked) but too much for the 13 year old that I had in the car wtih me. I had to skip those songs. This is the reason that i gave it 4 instead of 5 stars.

Otherwise, this is a very solid CD. With the exception of a few more hip hop based songs, this is the PERFECT music for a romantic evening.

While Trey is a very talented artist, it is easy to tell who his influences are. Ready to Make Love - sounds a lot like Maxwell. Yo Side of the Bed - has Prince written all over it. But both are very beautiful pieces. On a couple of the tracks, you could easily mistake him for R Kelly (Hollalude).

My favorites are
Neighbors Know My Name - 4/5 stars
One Love - 4/5 stars
Ready to Make Love 5/5 stars (Maxwell inspired)
Jupiter Love 4/5 stars
Holla If You Need Me - 5/5 stars (My FAVORITE)
Yo side of the Bed 5/5 Stars (MY FAVORITE -BEAUTIFUL!!!!)

5.0 out of 5 stars Damn near classic... October 10, 2009
By Da-Goat
Format:Audio CD
From a male's perspective, I can say that I truly enjoy this CD and Trey Songz is incredibly talented. He has a very distinctive voice, and I wouldn't be surprised to see him become an R&B icon through the years. This CD, is hands down one of the top R&B albums of the year, yet it does fall short in achieving Trey's true potential.

In my opinion the thing that holds this album back is probably the lack of creative control that Trey has in the process. Time and time again we see talented artists signed to major record labels and the net product is watered down formula music that sadly tries to re-create the magic or purity of music from back in the day. People have become bored with music hence the miserable album sales and all the illegal bootlegging, however amidst all this "machine" music Trey's talent overrides the lackluster influence from whack A&Rs and executives in the music business...yeah he's that good. I find it hard to imagine that any music executive could prompt or cause Trey to do the things he did with each song, I'd imagine them telling him to simply go sing the song and to hit the right notes, yet Trey went into the booth and PERFORMED these songs clearly he has studied and perfected his craft hence he is "Ready".

From the start to finish the CD contains solid tracks all the way through, and there is something on there for everybody. Personally I find it hard to imagine that LOL:) is on the same album with "Black Roses" and "Love Lost" (the lack of creative influence). Nonetheless, Trey doesn't disappoint and delivers strong vocals on each track. My personal favorites include: "Be where you are", "Black Roses", and "Love Lost". The track "Be Where you are" has the potential to make him appeal to other audiences as it shows his versatility.
