Trey Songz Talks ‘Trigga’ Album, Friendship With Chris Brown & Love Life on ‘The Breakfast Club’ [VIDEO]
Trey Songz is on his promo run for his upcoming album ‘Trigga.’ On Tuesday (June 3), the R&B hunk returned to Power 105.1′s ‘The Breakfast Club’ to talk about collaborating with 50 Cent, the state of R&B, his close relationship with Chris Brown and his thoughts on his now deaded feud with August Alsina.
Early in the conversation, Songz was asked about his collaboration with 50 Cent on the ‘Animal Ambition’ track ‘Smoke.’ The singer praised the New York rapper for his business savvy and musical instinct.
“50′s smarter than a lot of people give him credit for,” he said. “The actual ‘Smoke’ record was for [Dr. Dre]. I was in with Dre. We did about five or six records three years ago.”
As for the state of R&B, Songz believes the genre is in a good place, but admits that it’s blending with other genres of music including hip-hop and pop.
“The complexion of music is different,” he stated. “I don’t know if we need to change it or what would happen for R&B to emerge in a different light. But I can guarantee you that I have some great R&B [music].”
Songz was then asked about his beef with August Alsina. As we previously reported, the ‘Na Na’ singer stated he doesn’t have a problem with the R&B newcomer. He reiterated those same feelings during the interview.
“I rock with dude. I believe in him. I think he’s very talented,” he said.
The conversation then shifted to his friendship with Chris Brown, who was just released from jail on Monday (June 2). Songz explains that their bond started when Breezy was a teenage heartthrob.
“Chris and I, we actually did our first tour together.. .and I always looked to him as a younger brother,” he said. “The trajectory of my career was much slower than his. It was much more gradual. I was able to embrace and deal with things differently.”
During the rest of the interview, Songz talked about his exercise regime, his status as a single man and his new album, ‘Trigga,’ due out July 1.
In the end, Songz is happy with where he’s at in life.
“I’m at the point in my life where I’m just so happy about everything,” he beamed. “I’m just happy about my music, I’m happy my family’s taken care of, I’m wealthy, my music is sounding amazing.”
