Trey Songz Performs ‘Can’t Be Friends’ On ‘The View’

Published: Thursday 9th Dec 2010 by Trent

Trey Songz visited ‘The View’ this morning. The singer performed ‘Can’t Be Friends’ from his ‘Passion, Pain & Pleasure’ album which only just managed to pass the 500k sales mark in the US last week (after almost 3 months in stores). Check out his rendition below:

With all of those dramatics I would have thought Songz was delivering a powerhouse performance but I was wrong. All I want for Christmas is for him to learn to sing on key and stop yelping. Please.

Sidebar: Did you hear Songz’s answer when asked about his constant need to sing about sex? I’m going to leave that one alone.

Thoughts?

    YALL STAY HATING ON TREY SONGZ AFTER HE GAVE YALL HIS MUTHA F****** ASS TO KISS DURING THAT, LAME THATGRAPJUICE INTERVIEW YALL DID!!! LMFAO AND FOR A BUNCH OF QUEENS I WOULD THINK YOU GUYS WOULD LIKE A PIECE OF TREYS ASS!!! LOL.

    YALL ARE SO SAD! TREY SONGZ ALBUM IS DOING EXCEPTIONALLY WELL FOR A R&B SINGER, WITH NO PROMOTION AT THAT.

    HE HAS SOLD MORE THAN XTINA, FANTASIA, AND A PLETHORA OF RAPPERS AND HASNT BEEN ON A MAJOR PLATFORM EXCEPT RATCHET ASS BET SINCE HIS ALBUM INITIALLY CAME OUT!!!

    HAVE A SEAT TRENT

    MAYBE IF TREY WILL GAVE YOU HIS D*** TO SUCK INSTEAD OF HIS ASS TO KISS YOUR FAIRY QUEEN ASS WOULD BE SINGING ANOTHER TUNE HUH. LOL.

    I know he wasn’t too cordial when yall interview him.
    But it’s just getting old throwing all this shade now.
    Ready hadn’t even sold that much at this time last year.
    Yall need to chill.
    If he had been all OMG I LOVE THAT GRAPE JUICE you will be singing his praises.

  4. Alexander December 9, 2010

    Trent, The performance was horrible, the vocals was off key plus he couldn’t hit one smooth note. Dude was yelling and very off Rhythm!!!
    Also he never grew up listening to Donnie Hathaway! or Marvin, he was just throwning names out there because R Kelly is paying homage to those before him! Trey needs to learn respect and apologize to Mr. Kelly for the diss track and silly rermarks made at him!

    Flopper of an album with no grammy nods!

  5. Mike December 9, 2010

    Trey was very nice to the ladies on the veiw… Maybe Frank Gatson does need to work with him, cause I saw what Frank meant.. He is not true when he sings..The production of the band could have been better and background singers would be good… Frank help the brother, cause I do see the potential..

    3 Weeks ago not last week

    If i was a celbe, i would sooooooo sue u for wrong info

  7. Robier December 9, 2010

    THIS WAS SOME TERRIBLE BS. I SAW IT WHILE IT WAS ON THIS MORN AND DIED INSIDE. HE EVEN OOKED EMBARRASSED. HOW DARE HE MENTION PRINCE WHEN PRINCE WAS AT THE SHOW AND JUST READ JUSTIN BIEBER DOWN LOL

  8. Alexander December 9, 2010

    I’m not finished yet! This album PPP is a panic attack waiting to implode on him for creating a negative vibe in the R&B genre; He blasted a legend because he was expressing his art form and variety of talents elsewhere. Now Trey has figured it out that America’s Grammy nomination panel cannot condone violence or verbal threats made at one of music’s icons. Ready &PPP was not even mentioned for one nod, although “Can’t be friends” is number #1 on the R&B charts after Chris Brown’s Deuces stayed there for over 10 weeks! Trey’s single been there for 4 weeks and slowing down now with other singles on its way up!

    Hip Hop is dead; I repeat again that Hip Hop is gone to its grave due to people like Trey and 50cent and Kanye West showing a lack of respect to the game. R&B is getting more grown again like it always should’ve been in the first place! I’m missing something right? I’ll even choose Jaheim over Trey, I’ll chose Eric Benet’ over him, I’ll no doubt pick my main artist R Kelly over him, by the way who was mentioned as the top 25 years top 50 artist to take orbit and get his due for making numerous hit albums and countless number 1 singles to hit the top charts. I say 84 singles touched the top charts and 50 songs reached the top 40 to set a record for artistry.

    Now the View show performance was to combat the performance Mr. Kelly done on the Jimmy Fallon show! Huh, nobody was feeling Trey performance! But, R Kelly vocally killed every note and showed who can get the crowd into his jams live. R Kelly will win a Grammy.

    Trent is right, the performance was garbage! You Trey fans need to stop lying to yourself and stop the crap speaking on things that was in the past and forget and learn that the legal process prevailed and Mr. Kelly were found not guilty of any wrongdoing! Now ask Wesley Snipes can him payoff the legal system?
    Look again that on Facebook Trey has over 1Million followers and still can’t produce one platinum album to his credit, I’m sick of him, I’m tired of his lame performances, time to move forward and look for another realm of entertainment, maybe Trey needs to become an actor because he sure got you little d***** bags sold that he is a great singer! Huh he needs to have his own character on Farmville as the Goat.

    iLove how TGJ has interviewed him MULTIPLE times but stay hatin’!!! i LOVE IT!!!

    Trey does have a bad attitude tho…and that’s bad when your music doesn’t deliver.

  10. jewelz December 9, 2010

    full of s***. trey ain’t singing to women, he singing to the QUEENS!

  11. Brighteyeshazel December 9, 2010

    IM SORRY TREY FANS ARE CLEARLY IN DENIAL. I TRIED TO LIKE HIM. HE TRIES TO HARD MAYBE IF HE JUST SING AND STOP DOING ALL THAT EXTRA BECAUSE IT IS AWFUL AND IRRITATING NOT TO MENTION HOW HE CAME AT A LEGEND AND MUSICAL GENIUS LIKE R. KELLY WHO DOES THAT? MOST NEW-COMERS SHOW THEIR RESPECT. I LOST RESPECT FOR HIM AFTER THAT AND NO HE CAN’T DELIVER. I AM SICK OF HIM. GUYS SUPPORT REAL TALENT R, KELLY “LOVE LETTERS’ ON DEC. 14. IT IS A CLASSIC ALREADY, ALL THE SONGS ARE MARVELOUS. I PRE-ORDERED MY COPIES…..

  12. i’m a billy goat December 9, 2010

    Oh…….yeah…..okay? This was not good. I thought he was going to tear it up but he sounded horrible. I have seen him give fairly good live perfromances but this was not one! His answer for why he sings about s** was just crazy! I’m given women what they want and saying what men want to say….okay Trey!…LOL

  13. luvlife December 10, 2010

    He sounded pretty good compared to what he has done before. Some of his notes were off, but he did pretty good. I see what Frank Gatson is talking about though. He tries too hard to be cool, when he should just be natural. Get rid of the background track and add some backup singers.

  14. UGh December 10, 2010

    This is who the f*** they compare to R Kelly? B**** please. Sounds like he’s gargling mouthwash.

    lmao @he needs to have his own character on Farmville as the Goat.

    *************

    What do you mean with no promotion!!!!!…Humm, what was the Trey Songz Documentary/ Fake reality show or being the opening act for Jay-Z and now Usher? Hasn’t he been on numerous morning, mid day and evening shows? Wasn’t he allowed to give an award to a pop star on MTV? Didn’t he win the best male R&B artists at the BET awards and received a split decison on the Soul Train Music Awards with Usher? How much more publicity can he get?

    His CD should be platinum by now no excuses!

  16. LUCRATIVE December 10, 2010

    THIS LIL’ CARGO PLANE NEEDS TO TAKE A LONG-AWAITED TAKE OFF FROM JFK AIRPORT AND THEN GET LOST IN ALTITUDE!!!!!!!

    LMAAAAAAAAAAAAAAO @SHAE! I CANT!!!!!!! (HE IS FINE THOUGH, but the music SOMETIMES TURNS ME OFF)

  17. VA STAND UP!! December 10, 2010

    Oh my! Trey, Trey, Trey. Damn! SMH! Um….yeah. I couldn’t even watch the whole performance, I was so embarrassed for him!

    He was killing me with the Drake ‘jazz hands’ thing. It was so distracting. *sigh*

    I love you Trey but, now that Kells is clearly making a strong comeback, your career may be almost a rap.

  18. DION-ISH December 10, 2010

    I Thought he did Good, i Enjoyed the Performance and the Visuals Plus the Interview as great as well He came across as very likable….

  19. Alexander December 10, 2010

    Dion-ish stop lying,
    Goat Songz is done in this town

  20. MUSICLOVER December 10, 2010

    IS IT 380,000 OR 500,000!?!?!?!? GET THEM NUMBERS STRAIGHT!!!!!

  21. Imanni December 10, 2010

    LMAO I couldnt even watch the whole video. I actually like Trey and “Cant Be Friends” is my favorite song BUT I have yet to see him perform it(or any other song)good live. For me it wasnt so much his singing(which was off)it was his stage pressence. He looks uncomfortable and unsure of himself. Like I said I do like him and I would pay for his music but I would not pay to see him live.

    @VA Stand Up
    LMAO at Drake Jazz hands. I thought I was the only one who saw that

    @ALEXANDER
    I dont watch Jimmy Fallon but I saw The Soul Train Awards and he MURDERED IT!!!! Especially towards the end when he played the piano

  22. Keesha December 10, 2010

    “I Thought he did Good, i Enjoyed the Performance and the Visuals Plus the Interview as great as well He came across as very likable….”

    It makes sense why you think he did good. Being likable and actually giving a good performance (i.e. being able to SING) are two totally different things.

    I would probably like “Can’t Be Friends” if someone with some actual talent was singing it, but he sounds like a goat. I honestly cannot believe that I ever though he could sing. I couldn’t even watch past the first line of the song.

  23. Keesha December 10, 2010

    “full of s***. trey ain’t singing to women, he singing to the QUEENS!”

    *DEAD*

  24. WonderLand19 December 10, 2010

    Yeah, frank needs to help him because it isn’t coming off as a true emotion. Like frank said, his playing it too cool. He should work on that. plus, the graphics for the background are too bright and distracting.
    However, his personality here was sorted so kudos.

  25. Shelly December 10, 2010

    I think he did good, he just seems nervous.

  26. Dee December 10, 2010

    ooooooooooooooooooooooooooook let’s try he is around 550k if not more for an album with lil promotion. this is the most promotion he had done and that was after being Gold. i’ll wait as one of you tell me a fast selling R&B album this year? Sade was the only to go platinum and it took usher a year to do it.he is Gold with 2 song, what the hell does that tell you? AND on top of that deuces was only #1 for 9 weeks and this is Can’t Be Friends 6th week. who’s mad? and his album was just announced the biggest selling R&B album of 2010 on Itunes and Bottoms Up was the highest selling R&B single? WHO MAD? Get of Trey’s d***. Clearly R. Kelly did what Trey asked him to do and that was lay off the autotune and Kelly has been getting more respect than he was getting using autotune. He should thank Trey. That is all.

  27. FLOP-MARIAH December 10, 2010

    It’ funny how Trent shades trey songz for “only just sellng 500k after three months” but praising Mariah for those horrendous sales. Memoirs took even longer to reach 500k barely reached gold and her new christmas album isn’t doing any better. Time to wake up Trent! FLOP FLOP FLOP

  28. Trent is a hypocrite December 10, 2010

    Trent is a hypocrite!

  29. liii December 10, 2010

    One thing that Trey Songz and Mariah have in common – they both can’t sing live

    One thing that Trey Songz should learn from Mariah – learn to lipsynch!

  30. Mrs. Tremaine Aldon Neverson December 10, 2010

    Trey dont listen to all of these NEGATIVE people out there. You Were
    Great, Fantastic, Super, Bravo! For those who are NEGATIVE people,
    Didnt your parents/grandparents teach you “If you dont have
    nothing nice to say, dont say nothing at all.” I know mine def. did! So
    stop commenting if you dont have nothing nice to say. And I will
    end in right there!

  31. Brandi Addison December 10, 2010

    Well I thought that that was just sweet. And I just love Trey Songz. I will never 4get his s*** face.

  32. Poisonous December 10, 2010

    @LIII

    u mad, Mariah can sing live. Dnt hate

  33. Sara December 11, 2010

    Why yall always hating on Trey? I mean he is getting the success and the shine that he deserves after all these years of hard work. So why all this anger towards him. Hop off his d*** and let the man live if you guys don’t like him just don’t waist your time reading and/or commenting on every post about him. Just IGNOREE him goshh.

  34. MeMe December 11, 2010

    ^ Co-sign
    And ummm, TGJ if you don’t like him, why write so many posts about him?
    And lying about facts is pointless.
    Sam and Trent, please explain to me how on the same day you could report that Trey Songz is far from Gold and is struggling to pass 380,000, [ http://thatgrapejuice.net/2010/12/trey-songz-eyes-beyonce-collaboration/#comment-323892 ] and then that he just managed to pass 500,000 last week (which is also inaccurate, but less so).
    This is beyond ridiculous
