Trey Songz bowed his Love Faces Tour on Friday night (2/11) with a steamy, sold-out show in the Theater at Madison Square Garden. Lloyd, playing for the first time with a live band, warmed things up with an uptempo opening set. Whether you were cuffed up or on the prowl, it's hard to imagine there was a better way to kick off a heart-racing Valentine's Day weekend. MTV.com re-live's the evening's six sexiest moments.

As a successful R&B singer who also raps, Trey Songz had some advice for his friend Drake, a rapper who also sings, regarding his project. He suggested the "Find Your Love" star keep track of which songs on the project are best to sing live.
