Over the past eleven years, no one has better blended the sounds of hip-hop and R&B, and pop better than the Grammy-nominated international superstar TREY SONGZ. And now for 2015, after dozens of hits, and more than 20 million albums & singles sold, the re-release of his sixth studio album…TRIGGA RELOADED is here.
Put your hands in the air if you’re loving tonight…
With TRIGGA, Trey Songz found the true meaning behind his music and prepared one of his most intimate albums but TRIGGA RELOADED only enhances that. With four new songs on the new edition, TRIGGA RELOADED will surely be what fans everywhere is excited for. The album has an honest and courageous set of songs that will solidify his bond with an adoring fan base who have been open ever since he exclaimed “I gotta make it!”
TRIGGA RELOADED will extend the legacy of I GOTTA MAKE IT (2004), TREY DAY (2007), READY (2009), PASSION, PAIN & PLEASURE (2010), the triumphant #1 RIAA Gold-Certified album CHAPTER V (2012), and TRIGGA (2014), which debuted at #1 on the Billboard charts. With this year marking the 10th Anniversary of I GOTTA MAKE IT, it is clear that Songz has no desire to slow down his music-making pace. TRIGGA RELOADED adds to the hit parade of jams like “I Need A Girl,” “LOL Smiley Face,” “2 Reasons” & “Heart Attack.” And let us not forget the classic change-the-game-sounds of “Successful,” with partner Drake, the permanent go-to-bed-cocky records like “Neighbors Know My Name” & “I Invented Sex,” the club banger “Bottoms Up” or “Say Aah,” the best, most literal, did-he-just-say-that? club anthem ever made that brought all that heat and sex appeal and provocation to longing ladies everywhere who thought they were safe at the bar.
TRIGGA may have been his most anticipated album of his career, but TRIGGA RELOADED is sure to turn on legions of new fans who want an R&B, pop, & soul master who wears his heart on his sleeve. Fans like Trey, then they love Trey, then they never ever want to be without his music. And then he always brings that fresh new beat…
“NaNa” was TRIGGA’s lead single and pushed its way up to #1 at radio, approaching 1 million single sales. The song flips that classic “oh nana” dancehall refrain into an anthem for the new millennium, a soundtrack for couples everywhere who want to take care of each other. TRIGGA RELOADED’s lead singles are already seeing quite a bit of success with “Slow Motion” being RIAA Certified Gold and the recently released “About You” taking over the world of selfies.
“I love hard,” says Trey Songz. “When I love you I love you to death, but if I’m not rocking with you then I don’t think you exist in my world…”
It’s that kind of passion that has always fueled the best music and it’s a feeling that Trey Songz brings to every note of TRIGGA RELOADED. Trey Songz has always been an artist who brings real situations from his life into ours. So if you liked the irresistible emotion that fueled “Heart Attack,” “Can’t Be Friends,” the yearning ballad “Yo Side of the Bed,” or the chart-topping multi-platinum hit “Bottoms Up (feat. Nicki Minaj)” then you’re definitely going to fall in love with TRIGGA RELOADED’s sultry single, “Slow Motion.”
Tremaine Aldon Neverson was born in Petersburg, Virgina, a small town south of Richmond. Trey’s mom, April Tucker, had him when she was seventeen-years-old and raised him as a single parent until she married Trey’s step-father when he was seven. An Army brat, Trey spent most of his earliest years moving from town to town as the family would follow his stepfather who would be stationed to different military bases.
“I went to eight schools before ninth grade. That prepared me for who I am in my life today…”
Stability came in high school when Trey moved back to Petersburg, and it was then that he discovered his music talent. With the sounds of Otis Redding, Donny Hathaway, Prince & Michael Jackson in his head, Trey threw himself at every talent show and small club performance, building a name for himself one verse at a time. After graduating high school he moved to New Jersey with producer / mentor Troy Taylor and laid the foundation for a career that has never looked back.
“Performing is amazing. To see a song come from conception to singing it to thousands and thousands of people all around the world is the most gratifying experience…”
If you want to witness the power of music, go to a Trey Songz show and sit next to one of “Trey’s Angels.” Far more than a fan club, “Trey’s Angels” is an army of devoted fans in dozens of cities worldwide who are inspired by the R&B superstar to live strong, great lives. They even have their own mobile app – The Angels Network, affectionately known as “TAN,” a straight real-time connection from Trey Songz to his fans.
The “Angels With Heart Foundation” is an organization Trey founded in 2010. It began as a call to action to engage his fan club and has now become a worldwide movement. Through this foundation, Trey encourages members to give back and, most importantly, have a positive impact in their neighborhood through community service with local charities and random acts of kindness.
Earlier this year Trey embarked in a partnership with founder and CEO of SX Liquors David Knight to launch the brand nationwide. SX – that is, Sensual and Exotic –features six unique flavors, including two tequilas, two rums, and two vodkas.
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.”
It’s that kind of talent that has always pushed Trey Songz to explore different creative paths. His first acting role was in Texas Chainsaw Massacre 3D. Then he played across from leading lady Paula Patton in the hilarious Baggage Claim, stealing the film with his antics with another woman (“That girl is craaaazy!”). Trey knows he can entertain in many ways, but it always comes back to the music.
TRIGGA RELOADED is a perfect blend of R&B Soul and Pop feel-good with irresistible sing-in-the-shower falsetto hooks. It will take you to the club, bump you in the car or just get in your head and help you rock out the summer #hashtag share at a time.
Rock with TRIGGA RELOADED, love with TRIGGA RELOADED, cry with TRIGGA RELOADED, lay down with TRIGGA RELOADED …and you will always remember his name…
