First thing I want to do as an artist is to inspire people to try everyday to be great at whatever they are good at. I am a believer in dreams. I am a believer in taking a bull by the horns and making things happen.
Is Trey Songz heading back to the studio to record a follow up to his fifth studio album, "Chapter V"? While there aren't many details at this point, Ne-Yo is writing some things for the "Bottoms Up" and "Dive In" singer.
"I had a crush on Kim Kardashian but Kanye got her pregnant now. I used to love Beyonce but Jay-Z wifed her up. Rihanna too but she’s back with Chris Brown. I still do like Christina Milian. She’s bad!"
R&B has long been known for being the go-to genre if you want to make love and/or a baby. Even before Marvin Gaye’s bedroom staple “Let’s Get It On,” the genre has been responsible for helping to keep the earth populated since its inception.
No Trey Songz song is complete without the signature "YUUUP" heard somewhere on the track. With that said, true fans know that you can't just go "YUUUP-ing" all willy-nilly. It's all about style, technique, and timing; if one of these components are missing you might be in for some awkward moments.
But never fear, Singersroom is here and we've got a surefire guide on how to use "YUUUP" appropriately.
First and foremost, never…and we do mean never…yell "YUUUP" out in a silent room. You'll only illicit stares and the chances are that if the crowd wasn't feeling uncomfortable before, they definitely will be now.
Secondly, know your crowd. It's safe to say if you're attending a Sunday Brunch after early service, it won't be welcomed with the most open of arms. But, if it's a Friday night and everyone around you is having a good time you might just be able to get away with it.
Take your "YUUUP" for a test drive. Ease into it and try to gauge a crowd's reaction, that way if you start getting stares you can act like you were crying out for help, or that something got caught in your throat. You'll also be able to tell if your vocal range is qualified for such a task.
Lastly, after gauging your crowd, surrounding yourself in a loud enough area, and deciding that the "YUUUP" is a go, COMMIT! You've decided to "YUUUP" at your friend's birthday party, or at your favorite nightclub so you've got to do it with gusto. There are NO backsies.
If you follow these quick tips you'll be sure to get everyone around you excited. Who knows, you might even score yourself a hype man spot somewhere…or maybe land a job as a fill-in for Mr. Songz himself.
