Trey Songz Is Ready Early
Hailed by the late, great Atlantic Records founder Ahmet Ertegun as "among the most promising R&B artists we have had on Atlantic since we started the company 60 years ago," "READY" officially establishes Trey Songz among the pantheon of R&B greats.
The album – which follows 2007's breakthrough sophomore set, "TREY DAY" – sees the Grammy-nominated singer/songwriter teaming with an array of accomplished collaborators, including Eric Hudson, Bryan-Michael Cox, Johnta Austin, Carlos "Los DaMystro" McKinney, and Trey's longtime producer, Songbook Entertainment founder Troy Taylor. From the player's anthem, "Neighbors Know My Name," to the Mary J. Blige-inspired "One Love," Trey draws on a range of styles to craft an extraordinary album guaranteed to thrill his already fervent fanbase while happily surprising all newcomers.
Pre-orders for "READY" are available now at http://treysongz.com/preorder. A variety of extras are on offer, including an exclusive newsletter featuring Trey webisodes, a poster featuring the "READY" cover art, a special "Yuuup!" t-shirt, and a digital download of the entire album 24 hours before street date. Best of all, both the "Limited Edition" and "Connected Experience" bundles come with an autographed Limited Edition photo booklet that will feature personal photos by Trey alongside the customer's name in the "Thank You's." As if all that weren't enough, 25 fans purchasing the "Connected Experience Bundle" will be selected at random to receive a five minute phone call from Trey himself.
"READY" is highlighted by Trey's top 5 rap smash, "Successful (Drake & Trey Songz)." Originally found on Drake's hit mixtape, "SO FAR GONE," the track now includes a brand new verse from Trey and is first available for purchase on "READY." A companion video is currently in post-production, with a premiere date to be announced shortly.
