I was pretty much in love with Tyrese. Then changed my mind and went to Jamie Foxx. Every since then it's been all Trey.

I had four favorites = Giuwine, Joe, Babyface & Avant! I still support them & buy their music. It's very few artists that I have all their music, but I have all their stuff. Love them to pieces!

While Trey is my favorite R&B singer at the moment, still my all-time favorite (unreplaceable...expands across all music genres) is Michael Jackson. His music is timeless & even if he will never have another album (unless he pulls a Tupac), what he has on the shelf now will outlive anything FOR ME that has already been done or will ever be done in my lifetime. When I say I love Michael Jackson's music - trust and believe that I do. No one touches him in my eyes!

Asgree w/ ROS! I had just gone to a GL concert, along w/ JE, Avant (wuz majorly in luv w/ him), Brian McKnight, J.O.E. (sexy bald-headed ass, umppp), Genuwine (only his music) & Jodeci.

Big fans of them all! I wuz also into Usher (confessins wuzs the CD!!!), Tyrese, Maxwell, Jaheim, Mario, Robin Thicke, Pleasure P/Pretty Ricky, Omarion/B2K(he wuz cute & sexy as heck), Marques Houston (naked had me), wuz still listening to R. Kelly, Ne-yo, TANK (still luv him) & Bobby Valentino! Mr. Ray J had also stepped on the scene & I wuz liking his One Wish & Wait a Minute. Hes sexy too, hehe! I like all their music, but none of them, I mean none, well maybe TANK, can compare to the sexiness & talent of Mr. TreySongz! When he stepped onto the scene, I forgot about all them, lmao!

I liked CB too, but he came out w/ Run It during the fall of 2005, when Trigga came out in the early summer of 2005, so I wuz jammin Trigga FIRST! I like CBs music bc I can dance to most of his music.

I use to be in love with Ginuwine whwen he first came on the scene. But other than that there was no one and I was surprised at how I fell so hard for Tremaine.

I enjoyed a lot of male artists and groups before Trey came out. As a matter of fact, I liked everybody that @Rolanda named, and Usher, Dru Hill and Boyz II Men, Tevin Campbell, Gerald Levert, Tupac and Biggie.
Of course, I would have had to have been born in this century, if I couldn't say that I also LOVED New Edition, Prince, and Michael. Dag, I was listening to them before Trey was even born...Wow I'm old. LOL.
But the way I loved Ray J was similar to how I feel about Trey now, and when I liked B2K, I was really into guys who dance. Stomp The Yard is my all time favorite movie about guys who dance. I'm watching that right now, as a matter of fact. There's just something about fine ass black men that can dance. Then again, there's something really sexy about the ones who can sing...'s picture

Before Trey I was a big fan of Boyz II Men, Dru Hill. Now and for ever Trey is my number one.

Well as far a male artists goes I will always and forever support Usher.. And I've continuously supported Trey every since he's been on the scene.. Outside of them the other artists in my ipod are Tyrese, Maxwell, Jaheim, Mario, Justin Timberlake/Insinc, Silk, Jodeci, Robin Thicke, Pleasure P/Pretty Ricky, Omarion/B2K, Bow Wow, Marques Houston, R Kelly, Lloyd, Chris Brown and basically any artist with great music just because I love music in general. But as far as spending loot to meet and greet.. Trey and Usher are the only two artists that has ever gotten that type of love from me.. Now the ultimate artist Prince can still get my money when he goes on tour.. "no doubt about that".

@cuttgurl609: I stopped watching videos for a long time too. I guess as you get older they aren't as interesting. But I do like watching Trey's videos.

LOL@Essence I actually like the family show too.

I'm glad you asked because I was just talking to someone about this. My fave was Ray J. I thought that he was soooo adorable. I really loved everything about him. Then I heard Trey's voice on Girl Tonite and it was over for me. I fell in love with his voice first, although I wasn't impressed with his first single, Just Gotta Make It. I love the song now, but it had to grow on me. The positive message in the song was good, but that damn high pitched, fast ass "Just gotta make it" part irked me. LOL.
It wasn't until I saw him in the Gotta Go video that I fell like a leaf off a tree. I've been a fan ever since.
Sometimes I ask myself how I could just switch from one star to the next like that, but I don't dwell on it. Trey is in my heart to stay.
When I think of Ray J, I kind of feel like he was that first puppy love we all had, until we got to high school and dating became more serious. I'm still a fan of his, and I wish he would make music more consistently, or star in another TV show, or movie. I Love his reality show with his family, and he'll always be remembered as my first, so to speak.
Wait, I just remembered something, I still loved Ray J when his album Raydiation came out, but by then it was like I was cheating on him with Trey, lol. One sweet taste of Trey singing Kinda Love started the flirtation, and one steamy night of listening to In The Middle, and the affair began. Now Trey is my R&B husband, and Ray J is my ex that I broke up with on good terms. Oh and then there was that brief flirtation period I had with B2K... uh, yeah. That's it. LOL.

Artists that I supported besides buying their music, last solo artist was Bobby Brown. Last group was Jodeci.

@lisaleigh: I think you go pretty hard for Trey. You're not mental with it but you are a strong supporter. I adore Trey Songz, don't know Tremaine. :)

My favorite male R&B artist was El Debarge prior to Trey Songz. Between 11& 21, I was a church going person so I really didn't listen to music outside of gospel and Tupac and it wasn't until I was 16 that I discovered Tupac. (He and my father died on the exact same day) But when I saw Trey Songz performing in that white suit, that was it for me. But I can truly admit, I don't go as hard as other fans have, so I would say; I adore Trey Songz more than Tremaine if you know what i mean.
