Trey Songz is a Grammy nominated multifaceted singer-songwriter, rapper, producer and actor. The late, great Atlantic Records founder Ahmet Ertegun once declared Songz to be "among the most promising R&B artists we have had on Atlantic since we started the company 60 years ago."
His debut album, "I GOTTA MAKE IT," was released in 2005, followed by "TREY DAY" in 2007 and "READY" in 2009. "PASSION, PAIN & PLEASURE" was Trey's follow up to the RIAA gold certified smash, "READY." From the bouncy first single, "Bottoms Up (Feat. Nicki Minaj)" to the chart-topping, record breaking #1 Hip Hop and R&B single, "Cant Be Friends," "PASSION, PAIN & PLEASURE" is Certified Gold, with over 4 million album tracks sold. The success of "PASSION, PAIN & PLEASURE" has laid the groundwork for Trey's highly anticipated new CD "CHAPTER V." CHAPTER V" sees the Virginia-based R&B superstar energized and evolving as he continues to refine his mastery of sultry, soulful song craft.
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 Trey's life and career, chronicling everything up to and including the making of the new album.
Trey 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.
