With his ‘Passion, Pain & Pleasure’ album under-performing on the charts and struggling to reach gold status, Trey Songz has hit the promotional trail once again in an effort to turn things around. This time the singer performed on ‘Jimmy Kimmel Live!’, delivering renditions of ‘Can’t Be Friends’ and ‘Bottoms Up’. Peep the performances below:
‘Can’t Be Friends’
It looks like Songz is trying to capitalise on the Thanksgiving sales surge that is about to take place. Either way, the chances of him scoring his first platinum album seem rather slim at this point so I sense that his label would be happy if they could at least get a gold record.
Then again, judging by the massive promotional campaign launched for this project, it’s safe to say that the profits gained by the company were not as large as those from his ‘Ready’ LP. The only way that the label would have gotten sizable revenue from Songz this year is if he is on a 360 deal and they get a cut of all his concert sales and endorsement deals. Maybe sex doesn’t sell so well after all.
