R&B pin-up Trey Songz has unzipped new single ‘Heart Attack’.
The Rico Love penned / Benny Blanco produced cut is the first to be lifted from the crooner’s forthcoming album ‘Chapter 5’.
Take a listen after the jump…
A solid, but boring R&B affair.
Non-eventful both on the production and vocal ends of the scale, the track (at best) functions as album filler. Indeed, it’s certainly not the kind of track Songz should be serving up as a first single – or a single at all. Although, lyrically, it does point to growth when compared to some of his sex-soaked offerings of old.
Given the cut’s immediate availability on iTunes and Songz’s 5 month hiatus, it’s fair to presume ‘Attack’ is a buzz track. The only problem? It packs no spark.
Dangerous, given the re-sursugence of rival Chris Brown, who is consciously covering all bases (Urban and Pop) this time. Whether Songz will be able to claim back some of his old stomping ground will be interesting to see. He’ll certainly need to lace his boots a bit tighter, as this track simply isn’t it.
