A week after dropping “Nobody Else But You,” Trey Songz returns with “Playboy,” the latest single off his forthcoming album, Tremaine The Playboy.
Produced by Rico Love, the R&B slow jam finds Trigga ruminating about his player lifestyle. “Don’t know why I’m still kissing girls I don’t love,” he sings. “Still stumbling out of these clubs / Still I’m just so hard to trust / Don’t know why I’m still a playboy.”
Last week, “Nobody Else But You” served as the first episode of Trey’s “For the Love of Ray J”-inspired faux reality series “Tremaine The Playboy.” Originally believed to be an actual VH1 program, it was meant to accompany Trigga’s album.
“It’s not real,” he confirmed with “The Breakfast Club.” “The way people consume music, the way people love reality TV, the way people love drama, just the illusion that it could be something I was doing was a great way for me introduce music. I had y’all fooled…It did what I wanted it to do…I got the people that’s upset about it and the people that’s like, ‘Where do I sign up?’ And, you know, we’re having different conversations about different things now.”
The video for “Playboy” picks up right where “Nobody Else But You” left off, as Trey mourns the heartache of a previous relationship while laying in bed with a bevy of beauties. An extended version of the video, featuring interviews and confessionals with the ladies vying for Trey’s love, can be found below.
Tremaine The Playboy is due March 24.
