Trey Songz Chats It Up With ‘Uptown’

Published: Wednesday 17th Aug 2011 by Rashad

R&B heartthrob Trey Songz has been making his rounds on the promo trail lately.  Most recently Trigga talked with Uptown magazine, providing details on upcoming tour plans as well as his recent crowning as the face of Rocawear’s ‘Evolution’ fragrance.

Though often quizzed on the subject, the ‘Say Aah’ singer also informed readers what he looks for in a lady (besides being able to tolerate his singing of course).  See more on Songz after the jump:

Via Uptown:

How do you feel about being the new face of Rocawear Evolution?

Outside of Evolution, I’ve been the face [of Rocawear] for a while now. It all spawned from going on tour with Jay-Z – the Blueprint 3 tour last January.  And it’s finally come to life now, after sending samples back and talking about it. It’s truly something that I represent so that makes it much more organic and a seamless transition for me than just taking pictures and then walking away from a shoot and spraying something else on [laughs].

The name of the fragrance is Evolution. How do you feel you’ve evolved as an artist?

I think that’s part of why the marriage works. My career pretty much mirrors what Rocawear stands for, at this point. Even though they have been the number one urban brand for years now, the cut and the fabric and the style of the clothing is changed. For myself, my style has changed. I cut my braids, I don’t wear oversized clothes anymore. You know, evolving from a young man to a man in front of people’s eyes – Evolution embodies that for me.

We hear that you’re performing in Africa next week? Are you excited?

I’m excited. I’m slated to be there for seven days. I’m going on a safari, I’m doing it all! I truly don’t know what to expect but I’ve never heard anything negative about going to Africa, especially from people in my profession.

What qualities do you look for in a woman?

I think confidence is one of the best qualities a woman can have – confidence in herself. Intelligence – definitely. I want someone I can have a conversation with. And sexy is something that is not only a physical attribute, but something that you wear just in knowing who you are. There’s something beautiful in that. And I love humor. I truly am one of the silliest people I know. And I need someone to appreciate that.

In related news, as reported here, we can also expect to see Songz star as the lead in the remake of horror film classic ‘Texas Chainsaw Massacre’ next year.  Fans who cannot wait that long for a fright are welcomed to watch this  live showing.  Such may be proof that he and horror were already a match made in heaven (or that other place).

    It’s sad you all are still holding a grudge against this dude. Even though you continue to throw shade at the brother thanks for continuing to keep the brother on your minds and on your site.

    Maybe you all need to come correct with your interviewing skills because Trey wasn’t the only that wasn’t that great during that interview.
