Trey Songz Honored by Recording Academy

Trey Songz and mother

Trey Songz celebrated a career milestone when he was honored at the New York Chapter Recording Academy Honors 2013 earlier this week. His proud mother looked on as he was presented with his award by manager and mentor Kevin Liles, while Ne-Yo saluted him with a cover of “Can’t Be Friends.”

“Stood amongst legends tonight. Truly grateful,” tweeted a humble Trey, who joined fellow honorees Valerie Simpson and Melissa Etheridge at the VIP reception.

Next up, Trey will perform at the Essence Music Festival over the Fourth of July weekend and will star in the upcoming romantic comedy Baggage Claim.

    And this is the fucking problem with the damn academy. They hand out awards to celebrities like candy to children. There is nothing that Trey has done in his mediocre ass career that justifies this bullshit. SMH

    Congrads Trey!!! You deserve it. Trey does a lot of positive things for the community. This isn’t a song award although he does deserve an award for some of his songs. This award was given to him because he has given back to his community.

    @Sonya, okay that makes more sense, and that i can respect. cause his music, with all due respect, is nothing to celebrate beyond that of the average

    Ya’ll can be negative all you want, but what’s important is the people that make these decisions saw his talent for what it is. No he doesn’t have platinum albums and hell of awards, but his work ethic and dedication to his craft says enough.

    Not saying he doesn’t deserve the honor, but I think its still a little early in his career. These honors should go out to people who have had a least 15 years in the business.
