During a recent interview with Extra, R&B crooner Trey Songz revealed that he has hopes of collaborating with a certain Beyonce. So far are these ambitions, that the ‘Bottoms Up’ singer has already approached her camp.
Full story after the jump…
“I want that powerful duet. A big ballad kind of like the Usher, Alicia Keys’ ‘My Boo’. I reached out to Beyoncé. Of course, I asked Jay-Z if that was okay to see what we can do”.
While Trey’s ambitions are admirable, it’s maybe best he focus on pushing his ‘Passion, Pain, & Pleasure’ LP beyond the 380,000 sales mark. For at this rate his established sales benchmark of Gold (500,000 copies) seems as far off as the Platinum certification he prematurely claimed in that Kodak commercial. I mean, the critically-panned ‘Passion’ hit stores more than 3 months ago, and despite getting off to strong start has seen its sales pace slow down dramatically – with industry analysts confirming 70% of the LP’s overall tally to have come during its first week in stores.
Perhaps call Bey back when you have a Platinum selling album to boot. Hell, even a Platinum shipped LP. Something.
