Trey Songz

Contemporary R&B singer, songwriter, and producer Trey Songz debuted in 2005 and swiftly followed through on the creative and commercial promise of his first album. Within the first decade of his career, he released five albums that peaked within the Top 20 of the Billboard 200 chart, as well as 15 solo singles that hit the Top Ten of the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop chart. During that time, he was one of the few R&B artists to sustain mainstream status. He collaborated with primary inspiration R. Kelly, was sought out by A-list R&B and rap artists such as Scarface, Bun B, Mary J. Blige, Toni Braxton, and Diddy, and was nominated for a handful of Grammy awards.
