Finally: Trey Songz Scores 1st UK Top 10

Published: Sunday 19th Aug 2012 by Sam

With minimal interest greeting Trey Songz these days, the R&B crooner can take solace in the fact that his music is resonating somewhere. Specifically, the UK.

No stranger to London town, the ‘Bottoms Up’ singer has made many a promo trip to this side of the pond, yet had never yielded a chart position to show for it. Until now.

Details after the jump…

The freshly published Official UK Singles Chart places the 27 year old’s latest International single, ‘Simply Amazing’, at #8. A feat which earns the diva his first UK top 10.

Prior to this point, Songz’s best performing British effort was ‘Heart Attack’ (#28), which too is lifted from his forthcoming LP ‘Chapter V’ (due August 21st).


The US mass may have pulled the Trigga on Trey’s Stateside relevancy, yet it’s somewhat good to see his International efforts finally paying off.

Perhaps he’d have better fortunes in all markets, at once, if he served up a product that was compelling enough. This R&B circa 2002 stuff he’s been peddling for the past five years is a major reason (along with his horrible attitude) why his buzz isn’t buzzing the way it was. Like, it’s clear both the artist and the material are a huge problem when an act is afforded all Trey was post-‘Ready’ (reality show, Kodak commercials, tour after tour) and still is unable to release a Platinum album.

Still, we’ll leave Mr Songz to celebrate a solid achievement. Fingers crossed the new market that’ve embraced him will encourage him, in turn, to switch things up.

    Sam what the hell are you on about? Ready and Passion, Pain & Pleasure were both hit albums (certified gold) – He has been successful in the genre that he is in, which is R&B and we all know that R&B hasnt been as popular as other genres in the last few years, so you guys arent really being fair – I will agree that there is not that much buzz as he has had before around the current project in the US, but im sure the sales will be fine once the promo kicks in more…

    Good for him. I’m surprised, given that the video hasn’t been out long enough to sell the song. Maybe his appearance at Hackney really boosted his profile in the UK.

    Btw, what’s with all that shade? I’m not a fan and I’m not even planning to buy his album, but you’re making him out to be a flop while he got 2 urban top 10 hits this year with no promotion. Give credit where it’s due, he’s still doing well 😎

    Good for him, I still think his material is predictable, tired and repetitive. I still feel he needs to change things up every now and then to keep people guessing and interested, that is just my opinion anyway.

  12. ismyhalostraight August 19, 2012

    i use to looove try..
    but his music became really repetitive….
    its ashame that he looked as if he was really making a name for his self w/ p.p&p
    and now all that notoriety is gone. there is literally no buzz for this album at all.
    however i will still be supporting and getting the album…..

    from a friend.

    Diva! Lmaooo I can NOT. He’s been flopping for too long. ‘Ready’ was his peak and we are witnessing his decline. When will they revoke his contract?
