  • THE VIDEO "LOVE FACES" vs "BIRTHDAY SEX"
    March 25, 2011

    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

SShorty You don't get it do you. We know what you think. We just don't give damn about it. If you think you know so much, why don't you go to Atlantic Records and tell them you want to write the treatments for Trey's videos. Good Luck. And stop worrying about Trey's tongue. You are insinuating a whole lot about having personal knowledge about Trey. I hope you don't know anything about that because we (including his Momma) ain't never heard of you. You know what that means.

Actually Sshorty I think the video did help his sales. As you stated Love Faces reached number 3 and stayed there for several weeks and PPP actually re-entered the top ten on the hip hop and r&b charts.

ROTFLMAO @ the comments by Numba1Hon and TriggaPrincess

especially at the part where TP said I was "mad" because Trey's tongue wasn't down my throat
lol if only she knew...

@TreyZoneLove

NO! I didn't want it to be all sex. It was a refreshing change actually; however, he still managed to get his tongue down the video girl's throat; I guess that was his way to sex it up a bit lol

I understand that it was suppose to be more romantic than sexual but I just think that the concept was weak and could have been better. The song is more over-powering than the video...For those who don't know, videos are meant to help SELL your record

You can't put out a strong song and a weak video...both must be bangin, for instance, Jeremih's
"Birthday Sex"

LOL@Numba1Hon "Jeremih doesn't look like he could find a G-spot if it was in his face let alone do anything with it"

@ariel He really did? that's messed up.

@sshorty I'm not hating on the lady that's in his video. I honestly think she looks washed out. I truly don't have a issue with Trey having his tongue in her mouth heck it could have been somewhere else. :)

Love Faces had some serious competition so that could explain some of the reason it didn't have any higher. But peaking at number 3 isn't bad at all.

JesusIsMySavior's picture

Honestly the title "Birthday Sex" is very catchy so I could imagine in these days it would peak to number 1 on the hip hop and r&b charts. I really don't care for the song.

Never even thought to compare the two videos.

TRIGGAPRINCESS's picture

i mean this out of love but why the hell you on trey's website dissing his video??? i mean I, myself didn't actually think Love Faces was one of Trey's best videos but I liked the concept. it was sexy in its own way and the last time I checked no one gives a damn about jeremih. There's no reason to be mad cuz Trey's tongue aint down your throat. so next time you want to start a discussion on dissing trey's video, you might not want to put it on this website where all his ride or die angels are .

BTW, an associate of mine caught chlamidia from Jeremih. Lmao!

1. Mentioning class, your statements are not classy on Trey's website. 2. Artists make lots more money selling seats on the road. The record companies are scrambling trying to figure how to make money. You can get songs for 99 cents on I-tunes. 3. The BS concept is silly. Jeremih doesn't look like he could find a G-spot if it was in his face let alone do anything with it, and the song indicates he has nothing to offer his girlfriend but sex on her birthday. I can't see that model going for that bullshit. Jeremih isn't thinking about anybody else but himself in that song. Trey is thoughtful of the girl in his video and that is classy. That is why his fans love him. Get real Shorty. You are trying to create controversy. You want to argue. I have nothing against Jeremih. I am ALL for brothers doing their thing and getting paid. I don't believe in pitting one against the other. But since you are making negative comparisons on Trey's website, I am giving you my honest negative opinion, except I am not putting it on Jeremih's website. I would show him love or constructive criticism (meaning a loving way of giving your opinion).

The girl in Birthday Sex wasnt cute at all, she was just light skin with light eyes. As for the girl in Love Faces she wasnt all that cute either, but if u notice none of the girls on Treys videos are extremely beautiful!

And what u were expecting in the Love Faces video was for it to be all sex and it wasnt. It was more romantic than sexual! And if u dont get it then oh well!

kg.sunshine's picture

I just don't get the comparison. Did Trey & Jeremiah use the same video director or something? I could understand if the two videos dropped at the same time, but they are years apart. I didn't like the "Birthday Sex" video at all. I didn't think it captured the song well at all; especially considering the song had been out for an eternity in Chicago [his hometown] b/f the rest of the country even heard it. "Love Faces" has a concept, which "Birthday Sex" doesn't. I like both songs.

@sshorty you are always starting some mess i kno u have ur own opinion but this is not jeremih's fan club page this is TreySongz fan page.we dont care about jeremih's record sales or how well he is doing all we care about is treysongz . we know trey is very sexual in his video and so what he can kiss who ever he want. both girls are pretty but nowadays who video is classy anymore sex sells be at the end of the day i still have love for you sshorty cuz u are crazy lol

SShorty's picture

Lol...I think some of you misunderstood

The girl in "Love Faces" was good-looking but
I think some of you are hating on the Brazilian woman in Jeremih's "Birthday Sex" video lol

I said "Birthday Sex" video is MORE classy, tasteful, and sexier than "Love Faces"
and the concept was spot on...

In "Love Faces" Trey, as per usual, has his tongue down the girl's throat that's not classy; plus the
concept did not connect

and it seems the majority of music listeners on Billboard agreed with me...

"Love Faces" peak position on Billboard Hot 100 was 63. It's current position is 67.
On the R&B/Hip-Hop chart, it peaked at no. 3 and now at no. 5

Even though "Birthday Sex" highest position on Billboard Hot 100 was 4; on the R&B/
Hip-Hop chart it peaked at number uno baby lol

I am glad you enjoyed Jeremih's video, but it left no impression on me. No hate, but I don't even like the song and I don't think his model was particularly sexy or pretty. But I love Love Faces and the video and I'm glad Trey knew to do something less sexual for Valentine's day. I think he is showing the fans that he knows about putting his lady first and that it's not always about sex (even though it is implied that he is reminiscing about the mess they were previously making.) I also think his model is very pretty, ladylike, and sensual looking and the video is romantic, classy and respectful. She looks like somebody he would marry and he is dressed to kill and looking gorgeous. Don't get me wrong. I have no complaints about Invented Sex, or Neighbors and the freaky side of Trey, but in my opinion, this video was needed and was great for Valentine's day.

@rolanda4 I agree I expected a more sexual videos but I'm glad they stayed classy too. Yes it is nice seeing a brother treat a woman repectfully.

TEETIMME's picture

I luv the video, one of the best bc its different & what we werent expecting, like TREYZONELOVE said. Very romantic!

WhitneyDesiree''s picture

I love the love faces vid....It wasn't how no1 thought it would be. I like how Trey changed it up some. Iam still tryin 2 remember if i saw Jeremiah's video....gotta go youtube that real quick!!

lisaleigh30's picture

Trey was just trying to get people to pay more attention to the song than the sex. I guess it still didn't work, because that's what people are still looking for.

Rolanda4's picture

@JesusIsMySavior I agree.... but I ain't gon lie.. I expected both videos to be more sexually oriented.. But, after seeing the finished product I was glad both videos went with the classy tasteful approach.. It's really nice watching a black man treat a women with some respect..:)

JesusIsMySavior's picture

@rolanda4

Considering the type of songs they are both videos could have went in a totally different direction.

Rolanda4's picture

I agree with @TREYZONELOVE the concept for Love Faces was genius and the video was amazing.. And the video for Birthday Sex was just as amazing. The concept for both videos were more about relationship romance than a booty call sex thang. And that's what I love about them both. In my opinion both videos are artistic and wonderfully put together..

Now.. as far as the females in each video goes.. both girls were beautiful. But, if I was to be 100% honest.. I was very happy that the producers of Love Faces didn't go for the typical "fantasy girl" for Trey's video like Birthday Sex producers did for Jeremih's video..

So.. Love Faces get's my vote for that reason only.. Other than that it's a tie for me..

JesusIsMySavior's picture

Okay I just checked it out. The video is nice, but I definitely don't like it better than the Love Faces video. I don't think the lead girl in in Birthday Sex was beautiful she looked rather washed out. The lady in Trey's video was pretty but her hair wasn't all that great.

JesusIsMySavior's picture

LOL@Ariel

I hear you. Love Faces to me was a very classy and tasteful. Love Faces is one of my favorite Trey videos.

I never saw Jeremih's video. I'll have to check it out.

Ariel @COOGIdown's picture

@TREYZONELOVE Well said!

TREYZONELOVE_2's picture

Trey said this video isnt what u would expect! It was to be different, it was very cute! The video wasnt suppose to sexual in that way! The concept of the video is that the two of them remember the love faces they made when they were together and no one else knows but them!

I dont know if uve ever experienced that feeling! Where ur relationship is a secret and no one else knows but the two of u and u smile everytime u think about the fun or love faces u shared together!

Ariel @COOGIdown's picture

The 'Love Faces' vid has been my favorite one of his yet. It's been too long to recall what happened in 'Birthday Sex...' I was buisy playing 'First Date Sex' instead. ;)
