Trey Songz : READY review

 Tremaine Aldon Neerson, also known as “Trey Songz,” was born November 28, 1984. Since he was young, he was vocally talented. Trey was loved to sing and has always had the support of family friends. This military brat was discovered at a talent show by Troy Taylor, a producer at Atlantic Records. After graduating high school, he moved to New Jersey and began his music career. His first two albums, “I Gotta Make It” (2005) and “Trey Day” (2007) didn’t do so well as his new release “Ready” has.
  “Trey Songz’s latest album is one that both males and females can enjoy. He makes the ladies feel special, sexy and loved with his words, and the fellas who bump his CD appear suave, debonair, and sexy to the ladies. It expresses Trey Songz’s sexual and romantic side. I even paid full price for it instead of [getting a] bootleg,” said Aliyya Borders, sophomore nursing major.
 “Ready,” released in September, is one of his best albums. The album, released through Atlantic Records, has seen critical and commercial success and is being talked about for a Grammy nomination. “Brand New” was the first promo single off this album. The lead single was “I Need a Girl,” which reached No.59 on the Billboard Hot 100. The second single, “Successful,” featuring Drake, peaked at No.17. The third official single, “LOL :-),” which features Gucci Mane and Soulja Boy Tell ’Em, debuted and peaked at No.51. “I Invented Sex,” featuring Drake, is the fourth single and has peaked at No.79. The fifth official single is “Say Aah,” featuring Fabolous.
 “Overall the CD was very good. It shows how much Trey Songz has grown as a person. My all-time favorite song is ‘I Invented Sex,’” said Crystal Seabrooks, sophomore Interior Design major.
 “This is one of the best R&B albums of 2009. I can listen to it from track one through seventeen nonstop. And I love ‘Black Roses,’ the best [one],” said Samuel D.  Logan, sophomore Mass Media major.
