“I don’t know how to say this without sounding like I love myself to death, but I think I’m the cornerstone for young R&B.”
The good folks at ThisIsRnB caught up with Trey Songz for an interview that had the superstar singer speaking on topics ranging from his evolution as an artist, surreal moments in his career and how a recent charity event provide for the most emotional performance of his career. For those wondering, and after the jump, Songz also offers some brief insight on his new album, the forthcoming Chapter 5 (which if penned correctly could potentially be the biggest of career thus far).
Soapbox spill: As a resident of the same area Trey is constantly praising in his music, it’s good to see dude achieving all this success. I remember back in 2005 when he was dropping mixtape after mixtape. I also remember the entire 804 was on fire when he dropped “Just Gotta Make It” with Twista. Fast forward six years, several hit records and millions of albums later, he’s the star most people around here always thought he would be. Ok, I’m done. I swear.
