Vibe.com's "The Big Q&A"

on September 29, 2010 - 4:50pm

Trey Songz talks being anti-Euro, an all-rap mixtape and more in an exclusive Q&A with VIBE.com! Get a preview of the interview below, and for the full post visit VIBE.com

VIBE: From conversations I’ve had, many folks think Pain, Pleasure & Pain might’ve came out too soon after Ready. Do you see why someone would say that?
Trey Songz: What makes it early?

There wasn’t really a play hard to get factor to build anticipation.
That’s not an artist’s concern. I’m here to make money and make my impact on the game as solid as I can. The game is not what it used to be where artists should wait before they put an album out.

What was the major influence behind doing your fourth album at this time?
Because I’m here. I’m not here to wait until people think I should put an album out. I wanted to put an album out, immediately. After you put six singles out on an album, how much longer should you wait? You wait for someone else to come and do what you doing and take your spot? No.

True. Did you feel any pressure to create a Ready 2.0?
I’m not here to make Ready 13 times. I’m here to make a different album each time.

What would you say are the primary differences between Passion, Pain & Pleasure and Ready?
Ready is a more commercial album. It’s more an album that was strategically done for trying to attain a spot for myself. I didn’t have my place in the game before Ready. Ready was the album that did that for me, and it was strategic from the single placement to the songs I sang. I probably wouldn’t record some of those songs had I not needed relevant radio play.

WATCH: MTV Buzzworthy Interview with Trey Songz

on September 28, 2010 - 9:36am

With nicknames like "Mr. Steal Your Girl," which he gave himself, and "Sex Inventor," which we gave him, Trey Songz the musician can often get lost in the shuffle. All nicknames aside, the "Say Aah" is actually a bona fide hitmaker, whether solo or adding infections hooks to songs by artists like Drake, whom he frequently collaborates with.

In this Buzzworthy Blog video interview, we get to know the man behind the nicknames a little better. Trey talks about his recent, some would say star-making, MTV Unplugged performance. Funnily enough, we share the same highlight--Trey's cover of Kings of Leon's "Use Somebody." (Video below)

Trey goes on to talk about his new album, Passion, Pleasure & Pain, which refers to both the three central emotions that dominate romantic relationships, and he shares the secret to being an artist.
