Trey Songz Eyes September For New LP

Published: Friday 9th Apr 2010 by Sam

R&B crooner Trey Songz is showing no signs of slowing down. Fresh off the success of his Gold-selling LP ‘Ready’, and a coveted slot on Jay-Z’s ‘Blueprint 3 Tour’, Songz is gearing up for the release of his fourth album this September (14th). Speaking to MTV, the 25 year old’s manager, Kevin Liles, elaborated on his plans for the burgeoning star. Peep what he had to say below…

Trey Songz is returning with a new album this fall, according to his manager, Kevin Liles.

“September 14th, new album. He’s not gonna stop,” Liles said last week during a sit-down with MTV News to promote Def Jam Rap Star. “He’s gonna keep his foot on people’s necks, and he’s going to make sure they understand that we have to redefine R&B. We have to go work hard every single day to be the best.”

Liles, a record executive with Def Jam and Warner Music Group, decided to come out of the “big suite” last year to concentrate on other business ventures. He was approached by Songz to help take the singer to the next level, and their mission was accomplished. Songz’s star is its brightest ever and the hits keep coming.

That’s not it for the Liles/Songz combo: Trey is the co-star of an upcoming reality show with Young Jeezy.

“We’ve got the Blueprint 3 [Tour experience] from the eyes of Jeezy and Trey Songz coming out,” Liles revealed. “The first show airs on BET on June 27, the night of the BET Awards. The show comes first, and then right after that, the BET Awards.”

  3. QT April 9, 2010

    Is it me or is EVERYBODY hyping up Trey Songz?!?!?!? His albums are okay! Ive heard better music from diff R&B artist; in my opinion he has a looooong way to go!

  4. David Washington April 9, 2010

    “Keep his foot on people’s necks?” <<–This explains Trey's 'talking mess' 'bout R. Kelly! <–Despite HIS-past …."issues"!!!

    Trey is a dull, unimaginative and lack-luster stage-performer, I wonder just how THAT will "translate" when he's seen on the small-screen: that coming reality -TV series, of his!

    …This Summer is-going-to-be a memorable-one! Sam/Trent, keep y'all Word Processors at-the-ready: Summer '10 will see careers made;careers destroyed; stars fall; starts reborn; talent realized and myths debunked!

    X,Y,"and Z" — OUT!

    XYZ..you have no idea what you’re talking about…Trey is on Jermaine Dupri’s vblog all the time…the dude has plenty of personality. Lol I remember he was in the booth once and JD was trying to get him to sing without vibrato and told him to sing like Michael Jackson would sing it and outta nowhere you hear “SHAAAAAAAAAAMON YEAAAAAH”. S*** had me rolling.

  7. stan April 9, 2010

    why does dude ALWAYS pout his lips in pictures? is he trying to be on jersey shore or something?

  8. Mr.727 April 9, 2010

    To me he doesn’t show any growth as and artist, he is only cratering to the over hype sexual persona that he has been doing as of late! I don’t see him as creditable artist! He has yet to win a Grammy, he hasn’t even had a number one album on the billboard 200! This dude is not a legend in any form, shape or fashion! Women clamor to him simply for his look, not his talent! I keep telling folks that artist like him in this era are not going to be around long! If he would make music that is universal, then he would have more success outside the hood, but sometimes those are the only people that support him! I really stop liking R&B because it is all the same, and people want to give Trey Songz all this credit like he been in the game 20 years or some s***! When he said he passed his peers, he was smoking a real good rock that day! I feel like this, Win a couple Grammy’s, not just get nominated, AMA, Billboards, then I may just give this guy his due, until then he is just another name that won’t be around long!

    @Mojo –

    RIF — A “VIDEO BLOG” is NOT TELEVISION!!!

    And we’ve all seen-HIM onstage: we ALL saw-him during that 09/MJ BET award/MJ tribute. And just recently, saw HIM, put that MTV-College-Spring-Break-crowd to-sleep, in Fla, with that boring performance of his! …And if his “PERSONALITY”, wasn’t in-question, you’d NOT have answered me, as-YOU-did, now would you?

    There’s NOTHING “REAL” ’bout Reality-TV! They make ready-use of/ from scripts; reality TV isn’t life-unscripted! It’s scripted! So please….! If YOU want to make a point, do so, by-way-of, logic, reason and merit: don’t distort, nor belittle, which ONLY goes to show, you’re defending an indefensible position, to begin with!

    HE needs more of a break. Maybe 1st quarter next year… but We’ll see. “Ready” aint doin nuthin so why not move on??? I guess.. WORK ON THOSE VOCALS THOUGH!!!!!!!! not a fan of that raid/sporadic vibrato. Control is key.

  17. geronimo April 9, 2010

    Trey songz please come out of the “CLOSET” ask Ne-yo to come with you.

  18. Mojo April 9, 2010

    Talking out of your ass again XYZ. I responded to your statement because it was untrue and if you allow liars to spread lies..eventually,unchecked, they will be accepted as truth. If Reality Television is always scripted then why does Trey even need a personality…he would just need to be a good actor. You should really take your own advice and try using logic and reason yourself. As far as his stage presence goes, you’re basically saying he doesn’t dance. If you don’t believe this fact, stand infront of mirror and try to perform a song like Say Ahh. Hell even in the video, Trey is just chillaxin because the song is kind of a chill song. I’ve seen your posts and I see how you stan for Chris and I support that because Chris needs to be uplifted. But I don’t see how you can say all the positive things about Chris and hate on Songz when the only thing Chris does better than him is dance which is what you seem to equate to overall stage presence.

    I’m getting sick and tired of him posing like that in every photo. And if his next album is gonna be that fake ass D”Angelo garbage like last time, I will pass. He has released 5 singles from this past album, and they all slipped off the charts as soon as they hit them, with the exception of “I Need A Girl.” He needs to sing about something real, and not of the moment.

  20. JESS April 10, 2010

    Yay. Gay Songz can inflict more oversexed garbage on our ears (rolling my eyes). This m*********** reminds me of the ugly duckling in school who goes through puberty and starts feelin himself. He needs to sit his ass down and learn from real R&B singers who aren’t singing about eating the cooter or beatin up p**** all the goddamn time just to push units. He released what 7 singles and still didn’t go platinum? He even struggled to go gold.
    Trey (-In To Be Straight) Songz aint got s*** to teach nobody in the game. He wants to come @ R-Kelly? That’s like Omarion going in on MJ. GTFOH!!!!! 🙂

  21. 467833 April 10, 2010

    Trey looks like a lab rat and sings like a billy goat. He’s overdone. His fan base consists of ghetto hoodrats, ugly fat girls, desperate thirsty ass cougars, & DL men. Trey~keep kissing Joe Camel’s ass. It’s working wonders.

  22. newsflash haters April 10, 2010

    trey songz is one of the most vocally skilled brothers in the game right now and his songs are banging. Go trey, keep riding that success.. I ain’t mad at ya.

    @Mojo — Can you PLEASE cite: time, date and ‘exact-post’, where-and-when, I said that ALL of REALITY TV is SCRIPTED? …I had said “they make READY USE of scripts!” …If you and I are to have any-at-all “exchange”, it’s important to READ what I had post, and more to the point, NOT-TO-ADD-TO-IT; THEN: go-off on a tangent, with “recalcitrant-chatter” and “untethered-reason!”

    ….But you’re right: Trey Songz is NOT Chris Brown – NOT BY A LONG-SHOT!!!! …And I’ve YET to see ANY performer who “can’t dance”, but YET, has “stage-presence”, who doesn’t make ready-use of props and gimmickry! …Case-in-point: Rihanna, Lady Gaga…

    Trey Songz doesn’t have “the voice” to be a “true-R&B-crooner”; he neither possesses the dance skills of a Chris Brown, Omarion nor Usher! …So “what’s left”? …Well… “swagger”? And that, I’ll admit, is debatable; I can’t say, to-be-honest: “Yea or Nay”!

    But WE, ALL-OF-US, saw Trey Songz at that ’09-BET MJ Award Tribute; take the stage with Usher and Tyrese, and GIVEN THAT VENUE AND CIRCUMSTANCE, I should have thought that they would have given us something that would have been UNFORGETTABLE!! …But what was offered was weak, tepid and, yes, given the circumstance: ashamed!! …MJ would have NOT been pleased!! ..Let’s NOT, even talk ’bout, that Horrid, Insipid and ‘just-full-of-himself’, Jamie Foxx Host/Performance!

    @Mojo — And “script-or-not”: you STILL have to bring “something to the table” and place IT, in front of the camera! So, in-your-attempt to show the “contradiction in MY writing/logic/reasoning”; we’ve uncovered YOUR ignorance…apology(yours) is totally unnecessary: http://www.moderntimes.com/palace/method.htm

    –>>To learn acting is to learn or just study different ways and means of expression and/or self expression. By juxtaposing the terms expression and self-expression, I can use an example of an actor portraying the real-life character of Liberace! Now when the actor does this he can either try to do his best to re-create the sentient being liberace once was by mimicing to a tee his walk, talk, body language etc., or he can portray liberace in a way which encompasses a great deal of the actor’s own personality and/or interpretations of liberace, his walk, his talk, etc.

    @ X, Y, “AND Z”

    That BET Awards MJ Tribute was one of the most embarrassing shows in tv history. MJ fans overseas were clowning BET (Blacks Embarassing Themselves) for that b*******. Jamie Foxx is an arrogant gay asshole & that Lil Wayne/ Drake performance talking bout “I just wanna f*** every girl in the world” with little girls on stage was a disgrace. MJ must have been rolling. Joe the Camel prevented CB from performing and is now riding the Trey Gay bandwagon SMFH
