Trey Songz To Explore Storytelling On ‘Chapter 5’ Album


    It has been almost a month since Trey Songz revealed that he has begun working on a new album entitled ‘Chapter 5’. Now, his longtime mentor Troy Taylor has shared further details about the project, noting that Songz will be exploring his skills as a storyteller and delving into his emotional side as he previously did with tracks such as ‘Can’t Be Friends’.

    Taylor also stated that the singer will be rapping on the record, thus reviving his Hip-Hop past. Read what he had to say about ‘Chapter 5’ below:

    Troy Taylor, who discovered Trey when he was 15 and executive produced all of his albums, spoke to about the project’s direction. “I think Trey is coming into his own now,” he said. “He was always taught to know what he wants and he was always taught to know how he wants to sound, and I think ‘Chapter 5’ represents the storytelling of how he feels and his emotions and just everyday life that people go through.”

    Expect to see continuations of storylines from previous albums. “What we’re gonna do is elaborate on other songs. ‘Can’t Be Friends’ was a huge smash, but on ‘Chapter 5’ we’re gonna maybe go into a little bit more of the girl he was talking about. We once had a song called ‘Black Roses’ on ‘Ready’; we’re gonna tap on it to tell you a little bit more of the story. So Chapter 5 represents elaborating.”

    Trey has been flooding the Internet with his rap remixes to songs such as ‘Gucci Gucci’and ‘Ni**as in Paris’ and he plans to showcase more of his rhyming skills on ‘Chapter 5’. “I took a poll on Twitter to see if people wanted to hear more of Trey rapping and they said it was cool,” shared Taylor. “He was a rapper first when he was 15. When he came to me the whole question was do you think I can be a singer, and when I heard him it was definitely.”

    Regardless of how shallow Songz’s ‘Passion, Pain & Pleasure’ had sounded, ‘Can’t Be Friends’ was definitely a standout track on that album and a welcomed break from his penis-stroking ego-stroking music. Hence, I am curious to hear what he does by expanding that sound on ‘Chapter 5’.

    There is no denying Songz’s talent. The main problem, however, is how he has been wasting his abilities on radio fodder like ‘Bottoms Up’. Hopefully, the best has yet to come.

      trey songz have the correct people in his corner. kevin liles is a great manager because trey can no sing, yes he have radio friendly songs and some people gravitate towards them but something is missing and thats why trey will never go platinum. sex can only take a person career so far. as ABC said , he need a vocal coach and hopefully, trey and keyshia both take lessons together,LOL
