Trey Songz Drops New Album + Dishes On BET Performance With August Alsina

Just two days after taking the stage at the 2014 BET Awards, Trey Songz releases his anticipated sixth studio album, Trigga. On Tuesday morning, the singer dropped the official LP which he calls the best yet.

“The best strategized, best marketing, the most authentic musically, you know, and true to a different side of myself that everybody may not know,” he told BET about the album, which features collaborations with Juicy J, Ty Dolla $ign and Nicki Minaj. “I feel great, I have the excitement that I had around my first one, but it’s more exciting because I’m established and I know the ropes a little bit. But yeah, it’s a great feeling.”

As for feeling great, it was great to see Trey and Best New Artist winner, August Alsina mend their broken relationship during Sunday night’s awards show. During Alisina’s set, Trey and Brown joined the singer on stage for a performance of Alsina’s “I Luv This Shit” remix.

“It was an amazing moment in R&B, first of all,” Songz told theGrio. “A lot of us got caught up in August’s remarks about me early on, a few months ago. I never really got caught up in that because I know what it’s like being a young artist and have people on your a**.”

Trey continued, responding to the moment August flipped on 106 & Park host, Keisha Chante for asking about the duo’s beef. “You’re going through hell on promo trying to put your album out, you got people asking you about this guy you’re not really getting along with right now,” Songz said in Alsina’s defense. “Sometimes you slip up and say things you really don’t mean. And we had a conversation and he told me that, later on down the line. And I think it was great for the culture and for the people that really aren’t paying that much attention to see that even though we were at odds at one point in time, we came together, and to see Chris come together, too.”

Earlier this year, Trey and August had a falling out which led to Alsina speaking ill about the signer. “Like I tell people all the time, show me that you’re this person on day one … You should always be that person,” August told Rap-Up back in March. “We were supposed to have a show together and it just went left ’cause I can’t deal with ni**as’ egos and attitudes ’cause I’m just a real ni**a comin’ through and I’m rockin’.”

It looks like the duo are back on good terms … Now bring us some more music fellas.

Is Trey Songz Completely Out Of Control?!

Published

on

Trey Songz used to be a singer known for sexually suggestive lyrics and his panache for saying “yuuuup.” Now, he may be known more as an R&B singer with a possible rage problem…

Trigga Trey has been accused of smacking a girl in the face with her own phone and now that accuser is suing for $50,000. The unidentified woman says that while at Philadelphia’s Vanity Grand Cabaret strip club she sought to get a snapshot with the singer, but he didn’t oblige. Instead, according to the woman, he pushed her phone back into her face and caused her glasses to break.

If true, this isn’t Trey’s first time getting way too aggressive for no d@mn reason. Just last year he became so upset over authorities ending his show in Detroit that he threw microphones and speakers from the stage. Unfortunately, he also injured a police officer in the process. In August, he reached a plea deal in that case and got his felony assault charge reduced to just two counts of disturbing the peace.

So, back to the fan who just wanted a photo. It looks like she’s only seeking coin and not criminal charges. And in Songz’s defense he does take pictures with some fans (see below), so maybe it was just the way she asked.
