Exclusive: Trey Songz On Supporting Chris Brown Through His Legal Woes
Chris Brown and Trey Songz are two peas in a pod, bros, besties, buddies, homies and what Trey describes as “dogs.”
During the singers press conference earlier this week to announce their Between the Sheets Tour, the Virginia natives took part in a Q & A and answered questions about their music, upcoming tour and their longtime friendship. “Chris is my dog ,” Trey said. “He is probably one of the most heaviest scrutinized artist in the history of music. Everybody makes mistakes.”
“A lot of people saw how real it was a year ago when I went to court for him ,” Trigga said about attending Brown’s assault case court hearing in D.C. last October. “That was nothing for me. That’s my dog, outside of music. People go through a lot of crazy things in this game and he can speak to the test of how real that is.”
Songz added, “I just let him know as much as I can that ‘I’m here for you regardless.'”
During the Q & A, Chris, who just released his album X, opened up about his most personal songs on the LP. “A lot of the songs I got a real chance to just write and compose and come up with different ideas of what I was going through at different times. So I would say ‘Do Better’ or ‘Autumn Leaves’,” the 25-year-old said.
And speaking of doing better, a Los Angeles judge recently praised Brown for following the new terms of his longstanding probation. Based on Brown’s behavior for the next few months, the singer’s probation from the 2009 assault on then girlfriend Rihanna could end in January 2015.
