Trey Songz Moves Crowd With ‘Motivation’ Remix

While Kelly Rowland‘s name may still be on many a lip after her show-stopping BET Awards performance, Trey Songz has the honor of having had more than just her name on his.  Most recently the ‘Love Faces’ crooner was one of the many R&B stars on the billing for this past weekend’s Essence Music Festival in New Orleans.

In a set that featured some of Trigga’s biggest hits (‘I Invented Sex’, ‘Bottom’s Up’, and the like), the singer also performed his verse on Rowland’s ‘Motivation’ remix.

See Mr. Steal Your Girl in action after the jump:

As usual, Trey Songz moved the crowd with his haunted house vocals.  No word if the crowd was motivated to assist the reported increase of earplug purchases in New Orleans over the weekend.

  8. IAMWHOIAM July 5, 2011

    Songz is always bad vocally but here…….smh. This is what is wrong with the industry.

  9. credits July 6, 2011

    I never liked his voice, it sounds so shaky and unstable, that why his runs sound terrible. Well, my point is…..i always used to say his voice sounded shaky but now thanks to thatgrapejuice (kudos to you sam) for hitting the nail on the head with the ‘haunted house vocals’ comment. it’s the perfect description for his voice, i swear!!!

    S** Sells i guess, back in the 90’s S*** + Classy = Sexiness Personified, it was HOTT… but nowadays too many artists are just acting like H*** all up on the stage and the mystery is not there…
    Trey Songz is acting like he wants R.KELLY to adopt him

  13. NICK July 6, 2011

    Trye is a hottie, BUT he just messed this song up LORD A HOT MESS!!!

  14. I don’t give a f*** July 6, 2011

    I somewhat like some Trey’s new music. His earlier stuff had much substance to it. He tries too hard now…omg

  15. Chilestopthepress July 6, 2011

    DEAD at this R. Kelly wanna-be/goat yelping TRASH!

  16. Jarrett Goer July 6, 2011

    this n**** is wack as hell, n**** cant sing worth s*** and you h*** just wanna screw him, he good looking, but he doesnt have any vocal range, nothing just terrible!

  17. fried chicken July 6, 2011

    he sucks

  18. Keepin it 100 July 6, 2011

    Y everyone dissing Trey??? Kelly R. is the female version of him…. they have similar vocals. I think he did good. He’s no R. Kelly but he’s a good artist.

  19. fried chicken July 6, 2011

    i like some of his songs, but i dont know he could have done better

  20. Lola July 6, 2011

    Kelly Should Have Been There.. Crowd Would Have Went Craaaazy!! #ThatIsAll!!

  21. Vegas girl July 6, 2011

    WTF was going on @ 0.50sec? His singing makes me giggle because he is so serious about it but always sounds like a sheep. His super fast vibrato really should have been corrected early on but it wasn’t. Its VERY pronounced! I love that he seems to stay on his grind but he needs to slow that vibrato down and recognize hitting falsetto notes doesn’t mean you can really ” sing”.

    But he is a cutie so fans don’t care about anything I just wrote. At all.

  22. nice_gurl July 6, 2011

    He’s a good looking guy, but he needs to find his voice. It’s all over the place. He should stick to singing low. When he tries to go high I cringe.

  23. Holla July 6, 2011

    Uhm, I think Trey Songz has potential. There’s a nice voice in there somewhere. He just needs to keep it simple. Stop trying so hard. Also, hire a vocal coach like yesterday.

  24. BREEZYTHEBEST July 6, 2011

    Trey just needs to model and keep it moving,the fact that this dude tried to come at Kells is beyond crazy.BTW Trey is so not s*** and he sounded like hot s*** on a platter.

  25. bey’knight July 6, 2011

    he doesnt play up his s** appeal half as much as usher did back in the day, diff is usher is a better singer plus usher was quite young so he came off really adorable

  26. Lincoln July 6, 2011

    Please stop hyping up that Kelly Rowland performance. It was beyond average.

  27. sylvia July 7, 2011

    is bow wow gay??? go to to find out for yourself


  28. :) August 17, 2011

    I was there and he actually sounds good live.

  29. :) August 17, 2011

    I will agree he does try too hard at times when he sings but he is a good singer.
