Trey Songz braved the “The Breakfast Club” while promoting his new single “Heart Attack.” The ladies’ man touched on various topics including his fifth album, the Trayvon Martin case, social media, and if sex truly ain’t better than love, as his single implies.
Despite the temptation of crossover success, Trey will always remain rooted in R&B. “I’m gonna always be an R&B singer no matter how many crossover records I have in the Hot 100,” he said. “It’s important for me to keep my music urban and what I started it to be ’cause it’s not cool to be an R&B singer no more. That’s not the thing to do if you want a hit.”
He’s recorded about 30 songs for his upcoming album Chapter V including a collaboration with T.I. called “Two Reasons,” which the hosts referred to as “Bitches and Drinks.”
The conversation turned serious when discussing the Trayvon Martin tragedy and Trey’s own experience with racism. “It’s a month later and justice still hasn’t been served,” he said. “It’s truly outlandish that this is going down.”
Trey will star in the horror flick The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 3D, hitting theaters next February.
