Trey Songz in Billboard Magazine
Trey Songz in Billboard Magazine – Trey Songz graces the latest cover of Billboard magazine where he talked about his career, being broke and why he has decided to overly sexualize his songs and performances (this man pratically has sex on stage with random fans).
Songz briefly discussed the countless comparisons between himself R.Kelly and Usher.
The singer told the music bible about the string of blatantly sexed-up hits from his 2009 album “Ready”:
“The public likes generic more than they like to admit, so that’s what I gave them — I gave them sexual singles and they ate it up.I gave them two whole albums before this one — on one I talked about a mother’s love for her son and a father not being there, and on the other I made a song about safe sex. They were well accepted but not as much as the records on ‘Ready.’ The singles were purposely very sexual to capture people’s attention.”
He went on to talk about more sex obviously:
“People say this album was highly sexual, but the first two albums were just as sexual.If you listen to the ‘Ready’ album, there’s ‘Love Lost,’ ‘Black Roses,’ ‘Yo Side of the Bed’ — all songs that had nothing to do with sex, but were overlooked because they weren’t the first few singles.”
After talking about stripping on stage, the star went on to give some details about his upcoming CD “Passion, Pain and Pleasure, saying , “I couldn’t release it before because I still have records in rotation on radio from ‘Ready’ that won’t go nowhere anytime soon. But I didn’t ever want to wait two years in between any album. I don’t want to do this at a slow pace. You only have a window, one moment, and someone else can take my moment. I’m not about to allow that.”
I know he is over 19, he is actually 25 years old, but that is a lot of talk about sex.
Does it ever cross his mind to write and sing about social issues that are affecting the world or better yet matters (unemployment, teen pregnancy, abusive relations, abandonment, racism, peer pressure) that might be a burden to his young fans like he once did at the beginning of his career?
