Trey Songz is no stranger to R&B music, as he's been putting out records for almost a decade. But there's something special about his latest one, 'Trigga', which was released this morning (Jul. 1).
Sure, we're all familiar with Trey's greatest hits, such as "2 Reasons", "Heart Attack", and of course, "Bottoms Up". After releasing these jams, we've accepted the fact that Trey knows how to make us fall in love with them. And he's showing no sign of stopping his list of club bangers, as "Na Na" is firing up the charts. "Na Na", which serves as 'Trigga''s lead single, spends a second week at no. 13 on the Top 25, and no. 2 on the R&B Songs Chart.
But what makes 'Trigga' so different from the others? The answer is simple: because each track is unique to itself. "Late Night" is nothing less than a twerk anthem, "Dead Wrong" is one of those emotional R&B songs (don't we just love those?), "Yes, No, Maybe" is one of those hip-hop-biting songs that we would've loved to hear a rap hook on, and "Foreign Remix" simply has Justin Bieber on it.
But the album's best song would have to be "Touchin, Lovin". Not only does it feature one of, if not, the hottest rapper in the world right now (Nicki Minaj), but it could also be considered as the "Bottoms Up" of 2014. Nicki spits out some of her greatest lines to date ("The p---y wetter than puddles, I ride his d--k like a shuttle"), in which she samples mentor Lil Wayne's songwriting style.
Bottom line, 'Trigga' is one of 2014's most well-put-together albums so far. Not only is it a great start to the second half of the year (which, believe it or not, begins today), but it is a sensational addition to his music career.
