AFTER MUCH ANTICIPATION, TREY SONGZ IS READY!!
For those of you who are R&B freaks, you need to go buy the album because Trey Songz’ voice is sounding strong and crystal clear as always. His new album is titled READY, but I prefer the cover artwork on his Anticipation album (a prequel to READY), so that art cover is featured first. You can download Anticipation on his website (www.treysongz.com) and buy READY now on this website or wherever music is sold. Ok, let me get straight to the interview…
here we go…
Lisa: First off, what’s up with your haircut? Is this a transition that you’re going through?
Trey Songz: My haircut is something that I’ve wanted to do for a while now. It’s a process that I went through as a man. One small step in becoming a man.. .after being a young man for a while, I think the world is watching me become a man.
Lisa: Are you brothers with Terrance from 106th and Park?
T. Songz: (interrupted me) NO!
Lisa: There was a quote of yours…you said that “you wanted to appeal to the streets as much as you do for the soulful level”…what did you mean by that?
T. Songz: I meant exactly what I said. I wanna’ be felt on each lane and I think I’ve accomplished.
Lisa: You’re known as the Prince of Virginia…where did that come from? What is that all about?
T. Songz: An O.G. friend of mine, his name is the King of Virginia, he gave me that name. He’s incarcerated right now. He’ll be home soon. He’s like a big brother to me and he gave me that name, and it stuck.
T. Songz: I’d be probably be trying to do this, baby! I love it so much, I definitely would still be trying to do this. I would have went to school at some point and majored in something, and GOTTEN a degree in something. But I still would be trying to pursue this, cause’ I love it.
Lisa: You did the film soundtrack for Coach Carter, are there any more (film scores) we can look forward to in the future?
T. Songz: Most definitely. I’m actually in a few films…The Preacher’s Kid is one of them. The Wendy Williams movie is another. And I have one in production.
Lisa: (I interrupted) What about the Wendy Williams movie? Can you tell us about that one?
Trey Songz: It will be out soon, hopefully. It’s actually done, and has been for a while. She has a bigger platform now with her show so she wants to wait to put it out.
Lisa: About you track “Missing You”, was that written about someone from the heart and how is that going? (I really wanted the answer to this, but he didn’t give it)
