New Releases: Trey Songz’ ‘Passion, Pain & Pleasure,’ and Marques’ ‘Mattres Music’

‘Passion, Pain & Pleasure,’ Trey Songz highly anticipated fourth studio album and the follow-up to 2009’s RIAA gold-certified smash, “Ready,” hits stores today. The disc features the first single “Bottoms Up (Feat. Nicki Minaj),” the rock-infused “Blind,” and the intimate “Can’t Be Friends.” “While the words Passion, Pain and Pleasure immediately invoke sexual thoughts, for me they have become somewhat of a personal mantra because they so accurately describe this time in my life,” says Trey Songz. “The passion I have for my art fuels my drive and work ethic, while the sacrifice of my personal life to benefit my career will always be a source of pain. The pleasure that I derive from my work and my accomplishments make everything worth it. When I began conceptualizing the new album, these three words stuck in my head. They completely infiltrated my creative process, so it was inevitable that they became the album title.“ Along with longtime production partner Troy Taylor, other producers featured on this project includes Bei Maejor, Tha Bizness, Mario Winans, Mark Jackson, and Kane Beatz. “I’ve had three albums before this, but only one was really a hit,” he says about Passion, Pain & Pleasure.’ “This album will show that I’m not going anywhere.” Buy it Here ————————————————— Marques Houston is back with his fifth solo studio album ‘Mattress Music,’ and he’s bringing the bedroom to your speakers.
