TREMAINE 'TREY SONGZ' NEVERSON (Ryan) has undeniably become one of music's hottest R&B artists today thanks to an infinite streak of hit singles - including "Heart Attack," "2 Reasons," "Can't Help But Wait," "Successful (Drake & Trey Songz)," "I Invented Sex," "Neighbors Know My Name," and the RIAA platinum-certified "Say Aah."
Songz' third album, Ready made a stunning Top 10 debut on the BILLBOARD Top 200 and later received a Grammy Award nomination for "Best Contemporary R&B Album." The R&B superstar's fourth studio album, PAIN, PASSION, AND PLEASURE was released in September 2010 and debuted at #1 on the "R&B/Hip Hop Chart" and #2 on the BILLBOARD Top 200, thanks to the success of the two smash singles "Bottoms Up (feat. Nicki Minaj)," and "Can't Be Friends," both of which have gone on to secure platinum status.
CHAPTER V, the fifth studio album from the Grammy-nominated international R&B superstar, debuted in 2012 at number one on the BILLBOARD 200, selling 135,000 copies in its first week. For this new chapter in his career, Songz once again teamed up with the upper echelon of producers ranging from his longtime friend and production partner, Troy Taylor, to hit makers Benny Blanco, Eric Hudson and Rico Love. He tapped his younger brother, Alex, to produce "Don't Be Scared." Trey also enlisted a roster of high-profile featured guests including T.I., Lil Wayne, Young Jeezy, Rick Ross, Diddy and Meek Mill.
Last year, Trey was part of Kodak's "SO KODAK" campaign alongside Drake, Pitbull and Rihanna, as well as serving as the face of Roc-a-wear's Fall and Spring 2011 lines. Trey's constant touring led him to Johannesburg, Africa where he took the stage for two once-in-a-lifetime performances and spent time with local aspiring young musicians and entrepreneurs.
He has used his gift of music as the launching pad to various philanthropic and entrepreneurial endeavors such as the "Angels With Heart Foundation" and the Trey's Angels clothing line, sold exclusively at Citi Trends. Founded in 2010, Songz' "Angels With Heart Foundation" began as a call to action to engage his fan club and has now become a worldwide movement. Through this foundation, Trey encourages members to give back and, most importantly, have a positive impact in their neighborhood through community service with local charities and random acts of kindness.
