Trey Songz for Billboard

Singer Trey Songz
Magazine: Billboard September 2010

Trey Songz covers the September issue of Billboard. Inside, the magazine covers the rising success of the R&B star. Currently touring along with Monica and Dondria, Trey's next album Passion, Pain & Pleasure is due to be released September 14th. It's yet to be seen if he will stick to his recent formula of selling sex. It's a thin line he has to walk. If it's not broke, don't fix it. However, some of his base may be alienated by the same thing over and over. Either way, this cover is a good look for him. It shows more of a mainstream role for Trey, rather than his typical fan base of only blacks. With Usher gaining momentum and Chris Brown recently signing a lucrative deal with Creative Arts Agency, the male R&B game is getting crowded. Perhaps it's a sign of a change since the market has been dominated so much by females lately.
