About Trey Songz
Over the past ten years, no one has better blended the sounds of hip-hop, R&B and pop better than the Grammy-nominated international superstar Trey Songz. With “TRIGGA”, Trey Songz crafted his most intimate album yet, an honest and courageous set that more than confirms his status as the undisputed master of modern R&B, pop, and soul. Trey’s sixth studio collection, “TRIGGA” follows 2012’s blockbuster “CHAPTER V,” which burst onto the top of the Billboard 200 chart upon its initial release, fueled by such hit singles like “Heart Attack” and “Simply Amazing.”
Combined, this Virginian powerhouse has sold more than 20 million albums and singles, and yet shows no sign of slowing down.
Alongside these, he’s graced the big screen in several films including Texas Chainsaw Massacre 3D and Baggage Claim starring Paula Patton. Trey knows he can entertain in many ways, but it always comes back to music.
The late Ahmet Ertegun, founder of Atlantic Records, once professed Trey to be “among the most promising R&B artists we have had on Atlantic since we started the company 60 years ago,” and so far he is sticking true to just that.
