Except for his shirt of course. Trey is unwavering to make his mark as one of the best R&B singers in the game for the time being. The album isn’t bad at all and I reviewed what I felt was the best tracks on his album.
1). Panty Droppa (Interlude) – I wish it was a whole song

2) Neighbors Know My Name - Favorite parts of the song are the chorus and bridge. Verses do nothing for me personally.

3) I Invented Sex - Great 'cut song'. Got my first listen via Drake's mixtape "Heartbreak Drake" so it's kind of old to me now. I'll still listening to it so that has to mean something.

4) I Need a Girl - Least favorite track but it’s good.

5) One Love - Air guitar that opens the song is explicite. This song is reminiscent of a rock/love ballad and it's a a good look for Songz. His syrupy voice laced over the instrumentals makes for a sweet musical treat.  

6) Does He Do It - One of those songs living in the average arena. Nothing special about the vocals or music arrangements. (3/5)

7) Say Aah!! - This is a quirky song but it WORKS! Definitely a club banger & Fabo's appearance sealed the deal for me. Fab's comedic ad libs reinforces the airiness of the song.

8) LOL :-) - Another light-hearted song but it works for me in spite of Gucci Mane's appearance  

9) Ready to Make Love (Interlude)- Should be its on song! The night time sounds in the background are an interesting element that blends well with Trey's urgency for love-making. (

10) Jupiter Love - As a lyric in the song states, this track "elevates" me to another level. Wonderful blend on this track.

11) Be Where You Are - An ode to a woman's physical beauty. The opening of the song doesn't catch my ear but the chorus makes up for it.

12) Successful - Commercial success for sure.

13) Black Roses - My description of this track - ROCK & BLUES - and I love it because it reminds of Lenny Kravitz. The arrangement on this song is out of this world! I love when artists/producers step outside the box and create a winner.  

14) Love Lost - A song that's simple in its composition but makes your mind race with all kinds of "shoulda, woulda, couldas". I love the line..."Now I'm ridin to the 90's hits, listening to Aerosmith..." This illustrates Trey's versatile taste in music and that ALL genres of music are beautiful.  

15) Hollalude (Interlude) - New Age sounding interlude leaving the listener clamoring for MORE in the following track "Holla If You Need Me"  

16) Holla If You Need Me - Nice follow-up to interlude.

17) Yo Side of the Bed - Beautiful song. I researched high and low for credit to Prince because his signature is all over this (think Purple Rain). I'm a little disappointed that I didn't find the recognition but that's not my fight. I'm just a pleased listener.

My only regret is that I wish he had made his interludes into full songs! Great effort Trey; reminds me why I fell in love with your music back when I first heard "just Gotta Make It" so long ago.

Where did this guy come from?
Today I'm changing my rating of Trey Songz from a +3 to +4 after what I've seen this guy be able to do with his music in the past two months.  Originally I thought Trey Songz was destined to be a one hit wonder in the R&B world. I loved his first song 'Can't Help But Wait' - but by the time it faded from the radio, I was pretty sure it was the last time we would all hear from him. I even listened to his first albums and thought that they were pretty weak. Compared to …
