Trey Songz is one of the most exicting R&B artists in the game. His new album “Ready” will be in stores on August 4th. Each Monday, in anticipation of his impending release…he promised his fans new music each Monday until the album drops…here are the releases for June 8th…
UPDATE 6/9/09: Late Monday/Early Tuesday Trey released another remix track…DOA (Death of Kellz Autotune). The song had bloggers in an uproar on Tuesday morning, because they were under the impression that Songz was dissing R&B legend R. Kelly. Upon my first listen, I could not have agreed less with the general consensus. If you follow me on twitter, you know that I said that the whole thing was an encouragement/cry for the “old” R. Kelly to return, because he was playing to the masses and not living up to his full potential…a few hours later, Trey dropped this response on his personal blog:
“ First off, anyone who is familiar with my history knows I’m a HUGE R. Kelly fan & have been inspired by him since my early beginnings musically. So while some may take this as disrespect, those who truly listen to the lyrics will understand my urging him to go harder.”
EXACTLY. The internet is full of instigators. You can read the rest of Trey’s response by clicking here and listen/download “DOA (Death of Kells Autotune) by clicking the link below. The 6+ minute track also includes the song “Invented Sex” featuring hip hop’s freshman phenom, Drake.
