  • MTV.com Exclusive: Trey Songz Eyeing September 14 Release Date For New Album
    Apr 8,2010

    How may ladies want to come home with Trigga ... again? Trey Songz is returning with a new album this fall, according to his manager, Kevin Liles.

    "September 14th, new album. He's not gonna stop," Liles said last week during a sit-down with MTV News to promote Def Jam Rap Star. "He's gonna keep his foot on people's necks, and he's going to make sure they understand that we have to redefine R&B. We have to go work hard every single day to be the best."

    Liles, a record executive with Def Jam and Warner Music Group, decided to come out of the "big suite" last year to concentrate on other business ventures. He was approached by Songz to help take the singer to the next level, and their mission was accomplished. Songz's star is its brightest ever and the hits keep coming.

    "Every day, this kid inspires me," Liles said. "You know, that's one of the reasons why I got back into it, because I wasn't going to get back into it. I said, 'I did it. I cannot [go back].' I felt like I was starting to have the Michael Jordan syndrome, you know what I mean? What more? I scored 40 points, and you guys still feel I ain't doing it. It's like I scored 90 points, I said I don't want to be in that business, I just want to be great. But he said, 'Kev, we need you. You know we need you.' So I'm in it full blown with him. September 14th, he'll be back. He's doing a theater tour coming up in August. He's doing the BET Awards. The "MTV Unplugged," which is amazing, sold out Roseland by itself, 3,000 people. It's just a blessing to work with young talent."
