Ouch! #Power Slammed For Revamping Theme Song with Trey Songz

Published: Sunday 25th Aug 2019 by Rashad

For five seasons fans of STARZ flagship series, ‘Power,’ have been greeted by the unmistakably smooth croon of R&B veteran Joe as he sang the show’s theme song. As the wait for its season 6 return came to a close today, however, viewers were stunned to hear his velvet tenor replaced by the goat-like battle cry unique stylings of fellow R&B singer Trey Songz.

Giving the new ‘Big Rich Town’ a big thumbs down, the show’s faithful followers took to Twitter in droves to express their disappointment with the switch up.

    It just wasn’t necessary.

      Trey keeps taking Ls. He should have said NO to recording the song. I like Trey as an artist but he has not been making hit music lately. Time for him to spend some quality time in the studio making some new hits.

        I think it’s safe to say that Trey’s hitmaking days are over. He’s reached his mid 30’s and has been around for 15 years. He had a good run but he’s quickly approaching urban AC territory.

    Yep they downgraded the intro. Trey Songz is a terrible singer. Why change it? Poor executive decision

    No ma’am

    Agreed. It was trash juice

    Watch as this song will debut on the charts next week.
    This could be another old town road if their teams play their cards right.
    Controversy sells music.

      50 aint been on the charts in a while so it will be good if does. I could see this being a top 10 hit on the R&B & Hip-Hop charts if they release the Joe feat. 50 version

      Lol don’t be stupid, this is not a single being released to the public, its a TV theme song.

      • Clarkson August 26, 2019

        U are a fool. They can release as a single. Dummy

    AWFUL change!!

  7. Steve August 26, 2019

    Its unnecessary owing to the fact that it’s the last season. This new version didn’t upgrade it rather it downgraded it. If we weren’t informed it was Trey am sure 99.9% of people wouldn’t have known.

    “Goat like battle cry”.

    I hollered LMFAO!

    Hate the new version! They need to bring back Joe’s more soulful voice. If not, I will be sure to always fast forward through the intro to avoid being irritated by the downgrade that obviously results from poor taste by whoever decided to make this switch.
