R&B singer Trey Songz joins some of R&B music’s best as the subject of MTV’s latest installment of MtV Unplugged. According to Songz, the “great experience and opportunity” was taped earlier this month for fans to witness this Spring/Summer. “MTV actually approached me while I was on the BP3 tour with Young Jeezy and Jay-Z and they wanted to film the show the day after the tour ended. That was too quick for me because for ‘Unplugged,’ I needed time to prepare and make sure that the show was special and different than what I was already doing,” Songz said in a recent interview. “For the tour I had a 30 minute set. Since I was … mainly touring arenas, the tracks has to be hip-hop driven. Even with my R&B songs, we had to make sure they were felt in a different way. But with “Unplugged” [the performance] is mainly acoustic, so I brought along a percussionist, added some violinists and a string section. We brought a baby grand piano too, so there were more changes to the music, how I sang the song and the way the songs felt.” As previously reported, Songz is also due to tour alongside Monica this summer. He will also appear on an as-yet-untitled docu-reality series.
