Heartthrob Trey Songz sat down with PunchBowl TV to dish on everything from what fans can expect on his new album, who he would like to work with, to describing the perfect girl who would fit in his world.
The prince of R&B said when it comes to his new album, there will be a few collabs, being that he doesn’t usually feature artists on his albums. To name a few, T.I., Big Sean, and J. Cole will guest spot on the upcoming project, simply because a Trey Songz album usually doesn’t consist of many guest appearances. “Being that I’ve never had more than 3 or 4 people on an album, this is the one where I utilize my friendships and make good on collaborating,” the singer says.
Other artists that Songz would like to work with are Beyonce, Alicia Keys, Jessie J, and Tinie Tempah. Timing wasn’t on his side, though, when it came time to collab with Bey and Keys, who had both just given birth when the opportunity presented itself. “I actually held a lot of my listening sessions at her [Alicia’s] studio in New York…and we had a great record we wanted her on, too, but she had just had a baby,” he explains.
When it comes to newcomers in R&B, Songz respects Frank Ocean and the Weeknd for being successful at bringing something different. He vouches, “Anybody that’s taking a stand to be different and speak what they really feel deserves a shot.”
And ladies, get in here quick. Trey dishes on the type of woman he would deem as perfection in his eyes; someone he can depend on, who knows who she is, and someone he can have a conversation with. “As far as physical beauty, you can find that anywhere,” he says. “The most beautiful thing about a person is the person they are [on the inside].”
