THE VIDEO "LOVE FACES" vs "BIRTHDAY SEX"

  • I like the song a great deal, but I wasn't impressed with the video for "Love Faces" and I told Trey...lol

    "Love Faces" video was so-so; it wasn't hot like Jeremih's "Birthday Sex" and the concept was all wrong...

    The lead girl in Jeremih's vid was beautiful; she had the right amount of sex appeal and the chemistry between her & Jeremih was hot; and Jeremih didn't have to put his tongue down his lead's throat to make it sexy...I only saw him kiss her on her cheek.

    I thought Jeremih's video was more classy, tasteful, and sexier than Trey's "Love Faces"...He had the better of the two vids really

trinaa33 WiseAngel's picture

Numba1Hon Get off the gas with that ! "Child" because thats what you seem to be, I have no reason to kiss anybody's ass ,come at me with something better than that or go sit your ass down , Are you mad because nobody agrees with you? I think so , and why are you bringing up all this " Do you know where you would be if people did not defend people they don't know? Have you ever heard of Martin Luther King, Malcolm X, Harriet Tubman, or even Kunta Kente? How about Obama? " Is it because you just learned about these people and now you are proud of yourself? Girl bye! This is a disscussion board not a history lesson!

LMAO @CutTGurl - when the first curse word came out the halo came off. When the second one came off I took off one wing. My first 19 responses to her I was wearing devil horns & holding a pitchfork, so yuuup I erased several times and managed to have on just one wing.

I apologize but this was the best I could do & still slightly represent an Angel!

LOVE..... PEACE....... AND SOOOUUUUULLLLLL!!!!!

lol @ tricia ..... half of a wing tho?! lmao

@Tricia...Ur welcome & thanks I love my middle name...lol!!..idk y but I do. & I understand what u r saying about the video. I loved the video cuz it was different. Then I saw ppl sayin they didn't like it.I mean seriously r u suppose 2 like EVERY video that Trey does!. We all support him & i DON't believe thats going 2 stop anytime soon. nobody can knock down u or anybody else's opinion about the video. Ur not the first person who said something about the gurl I've seen alot of ppl sayin she isn't pretty. But even if u weren't joking. SO WHAT! u r a grown woman & can say whatever u want. We all have different opinions & they r not going 2 be the same! Hope those comments dnt stop u from coming 2 the site. Cuz I see there r alot of ppl who dnt hardly come on here at all anymore:-(

Tricia AKA @GimmeUnusual's picture

Thank you Whitney!!! I keep meaning to tell you that Desiree' is my favorite girls name of all time! I wanted to name my daughter that but my fiance at the time didn't like it. Then I said what about Tatiyana - he wasn't feeling that either - so we ended up compromising with Ayana.

I truly do love everybody - regardless of looks. Insides matter the most to me...I don't know homegirl in the video, but if her insides were beautiful then she is BEAUTIFUL!!! I was just kidding about the girl - but I still don't like the video. My mind is complex enough to understand what Trey was doing but my expectations had hyped up the sexiness of the video & when I saw it, it was just disappointing.

Nevertheless, I am glad to see Trey branching out & doing different things. I appreciate his hard work & every effort he makes for us his fans.

WhitneyDesiree''s picture

WOW at Tricia..LOL!. I dnt know u personally but u will ALWAYS be cool in my book (-:

Tricia AKA @GimmeUnusual's picture

@Numba1Hon I'm not a bully at all, nor am I egotistical. Never ever hated on another person REGARDLESS of race (while Black hate seems to be your only concern #RACIST ARE WE). I love to see anyone doing well for themselves. Now I can't joke because YOU don't know me & I gotta keep my jokes "PRIVATE" because YOU say so...who the fuck made you commander & chief of this fucking ship???

Frankly, I don't give a damn what you think of me because for 1. You don't sign my paycheck, 2. You don't buy my clothes, 3. You don't feed me, 4. You don't pay my mortgage...in other words FORGET YOU (and that's the nice version of what I really wanna say - as I keep half of a wing on)! How about you try to get your wings & halo surgically attached! I'm done speaking with you - everything else you say is null & void in my opinion!

Thanks Trina for defending me & I'm sorry that I had to stoop to her level after you praised me for not. I erased my first comments to her 20 times because I cursed her out...this the best I could do on this one. :-) Love y'all REAL #ANGELS & FANS!

CutTiGurl609's picture

@Tee.... of course! u cool peoples lol

@ladies

I like the Love Faces video. First because it wasn't what was expected and versatility is a great trait to have as an artist.

Second, I like the interpretation of the song that the video makes. Its weird who ever did the video put a lot of thought into it but instead of showing us sexuality it shows the sensuality. The whole time Trey is there he's envisioning the love faces through the art because those pictures are from a night they were intimate. And the hand print in the final piece is from when he put his hand against it while they were being intimate and the paint wasn't dry. So the whole time in the gallery they're are the only ones that knows the real story behind the art. Them not knowing each other was just added creativity.

Its like he wanted it to show different and show "Loves Faces" from an artistic view, as well as keep us intrigued with the story line.

I got deep wit it didn't I?! lmao

CutTiGurl609's picture

Lmfao @ tricia "He want an artistic video, then do an artistic song (sing about rainbows & shapes)" u r too funny

TEETIMME's picture

@Numba1Hon Yeah ppl ask all the time how I stay so skinny after having 3 kids! I luv the attention you are giving me! But I dont get it though...IF WE THINK ABOUT SEX TOO MUCH, OR WANT IT TOO MUCH, it makes us desperate, then it makes us big fat greedy funky & out of breath, w/ a gorilla as a model?? Which one is it?

Thnx Tiana for having my back. It seems as if this chick has some major issues!

Trish u good hun! She had no business saying that to you, especially after saying YOU were being negative, then she comes back on you w/ negativity! What color was that pot again? SMH.

trinaa33 WiseAngel's picture

It's ashame when people can't joke and have fun or a disscusion without people attacking people they don't know, now I am late,but when I came on here and saw Numba1Hon attack my Tricia I had to say something as well, I personally know Tricia and met her only a few months ago and I love this chick, so to me she is a beautiful person inside and out , she is a regular comedienne, So grow up and stop taking everything so seriously as if you know the chick in the video, it's not that crucial. And shout out to Tricia for not stepping down to get on her level.

Mariama Neverson's picture

i remember when i first saw love faces i was anticipating the sex/love scene... but it never came... but as i was watching i notice how unique the video model and how artistic the video was..... when he gave us the sneak peak of the video i thought here were go again "invented sex" + "neighbors know my name"= "love faces" ughhh... but i was so shocked because it wasn't like that i almost cried because to me it was that good... it was love not sex... this is why i fell in love with Trey Songz' MUSIC in the first place...he showed a side of sensitivity to a women and her body... he wasn't groping her like some chick he just wants to mess with...making love is an art and he put the two together really well in the video... but what do i know im young... side note: HE WAS GORGEOUS IN THAT VIDEO WHOOOO LAWD....lol

CutTiGurl609's picture

@tricia YEEEESSSSSS!!!!! @neighbors kno my name comment guurrrllll!!! lol

JesusIsMySavior's picture

numba1hon: I agree. In several interviews that Trey has done a big concern of his is being redundant. And Massage is my favorite song off of PPP too. I hope he does a video for it. I noticed he is spacing out the releases of his singles this time around.

His-Last Time: I hear you. Can't Be Friends isn't one of favorites either.

Numba1Hon's picture

Ariel. I think redundancy is the main problem. Everybody gets bored with that. I think more sex at that point would have resulted in oversaturation and a loss of audience. It's like can he do anything else?. Also, how much can you do with a video called Love Faces. It is eiher going to be sexy or not. They could have made it more sensual, but then it would be the same old thing unless they did something really different. I am wondering what he is going to do with Massage. That is my fav on PPP.

Ariel @COOGIdown's picture

@Numba1Hon Thats it! The redundancy. I was feeling he was approaching that fine line very quickly... I'm glad he didn't overdo it. :)

kg.sunshine's picture

@His-LastTime - I can't watch "CBF" either.

HIs-LastTime's picture

@SShorty... I agree with you on this one... I can not stand when I grow to love a song, and when the video premieres, it pretty much turns me off of the song... I did not like LOVE FACES and being hones, I didnt really like CANT BE FRIENDS either...

I think that songs that tell a story, should show the story in the video... As for love faces, i had to watch it so many times.. and i just didnt get it...

Cant be friends could have been a lot better too...

As far as birthday sex, I liked the video, you could definitely sense the nervousness from Jeremih being as though the video seemed to be his first on screen... but it was dope..

Numba1Hon's picture

I think Trey was listening to feedback and did not want to make another sexual video so soon because it was getting too redundant. Redundancy is the fastest way to get played out and lose people's interest. But if you do choose to be redundant, you have to really outdo your previous performance. I also thinks he wanted to exercise his creativity and offer women something else for Valentines Day. I think the video reflected what the real Tremaine is all about. However, I think a lot of his fans want Trey Songz. Poor Tremaine.

kg.sunshine: Tricia's comment had be dying. lol You're right it does seem like people are toning down what they are doing in videos to a degree. OMG did you all see Chris Brown's lastest video?

http://theybf.com/2011/04/06/chris-brown-gets-explicit-for-new-spend-it-...

Yes I'm happy he sharpening his other talents. I'm glad he co-directed the love faces video.

ariel:

It's almost scary to know what the industry will be like. People will probably be hustling their cds from the back of their trunks big time.

Ariel @COOGIdown's picture

@Tricia you really dont think the song pertains to the video? (Love Faces) Its the secret of them knowing the love faces each other makes.... Perfectly appropriate. :)
@JIMS Thats legit. I wonder where the music industry will be in another 5 years.

kg.sunshine's picture

@SShorty - Agreed! I, too, like subtle messages, which is why (although I love him as an artists & he's cool in person) RD's video just didn't do it for me.

@JIMS - "He should be arrested, handcuffed & chained to my bed for that!" Y'ALL KILLIN' ME TODAY!!!!! LOL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! And you're right about artists tayloring videos to fit a certain format. I'm glad! It's like a return of the old. Back in the day, ppl used to have to censor themselves & only bucked the system for a reason - politics, creativity, freedom, etc. Now folks are just random & don't give a dayum.

Creativity is about being you & experimenting. So, sometimes ideas work, sometimes they don’t. Either way, I’m glad to see Trey sharpening his other talents. Good for him - that’s commendable!

JesusIsMySavior's picture

@Ariel: You do have a valid point. I believe one of the reasons behind videos not being true to the song's lyrics could be it's not financially possible. The music industry is doing poorly so they can‘t afford to give their artists the money to truly create videos that are true to the songs.

@Tricia

LOL I doubt if Trey will stop making sexual songs unless he becomes Rev. Trey Songz. LOL@So Trey can't be getting me all horny with his songs & then come out with a video that dries me up... I understand you do have to coordinate. lol

Tricia AKA @GimmeUnusual's picture

COOGIdown - I think Trey does a really good job of coordinating the video with the song. I just watched "Can't Help But Wait" last night, as well as "Last Time". I think they go with the music. "Invented Sex" & "Neighbors Know My Name" go with the video. "Say aah" goes with the video & so does "Gotta Make It" - we just gotta realize that we all have different expectations & different perceptions of his videos. You may feel like his videos never match & I feel like they always do except the Love Faces video. That's okay though - we all still love & support Trey no matter what.

Tricia AKA @GimmeUnusual's picture

@SShorty - Yes definitely out of the two I like Jeremih's better. It was more interesting and the girl was definitely prettier. Great comparison!

@kg - Yes I was cracking up at the Raheem DeVaughn dialogue by CutGurl - HILARIOUS!!! I could literally see that happening. LOL

@Shelley - I agree that he wanted to go more artistic so that his videos will play more, and I appreciate him for that, I'm just kind of conflicted. Trey just gone have to make more non-sexual songs. LMAO Someone was talking about making a Trey kids bop - like what songs will be on there??? Almost every song has sex in it. So Trey can't be getting me all horny with his songs & then come out with a video that dries me up...all I'm saying is the song need to match the video. He want a romantic video, then do a romantic song. He want an artistic video, then do an artistic song (sing about rainbows & shapes), he want a sexual song - then I need a sexual video. LMAO COORDINATE (in my John Witherspoon from "Boomerang" voice).

Ariel @COOGIdown's picture

To the ones knocking the video because it's not sexualized like his other most recent videos: ......The line "the song was called Love Faces but was no love faces being made." Which videos that we watch today actually pertain to the song? ......... I'll give ya time to think about that one.

SShorty's picture

@Tricia

Lol...you're right that Rahaeem DeVaughn video is very sexy and sexual but for me it's the blatant kind which is alright with me at times...it definitely wins hands down for being the more blatant of the three vids...

but the reason why I like Jeremih's "Birthday Sex" video is because it's a lil more subtle
and sometimes you want it just nice and easy and playful and flirty...

Jeremih said that he got a lot of flack for making the video that way because people wanted to
see overt sex; however, I thought he got the balance just right

and you're so right about the girl in Trey's "Love Faces" video she has her good looks no doubt but the Brazilian in Jeremih's video was WAY PRETTIER hands down, yessiirrrr lol

and btw LMAO @ this chick Numba1Hon...

JesusIsMySavior's picture

You're welcome!@Tricia and I agree it wouldn't be realistic to like everything a person does.

"My favorite video by him is "Neighbors Know My Name" - I know that's sexual, but when he pulls that trigger & puts that finger over his lips....OH MY GODDDDDDDDDDD!!! He should be arrested, handcuffed & chained to my bed for that! LOL"

ros: He does look yummy in the video. :)"

igivemyall4them: I think he also wanted to create a video that could be played on numerous video shows because a lot video shows are banning a lot of videos.
