Trey Songz Releases New Song & Video, “Playboy”

Trey Songz is back with the second release from his “Tremaine the Playboy” series, and forthcoming new album Tremaine.

As he plans to do each week, the R&B heartthrob has released a visual for the song from the latest episode in his “dating” show.  Aptly titled, “Playboy,” the sexy slow jam finds Trigga questioning his lifestyle, and why he hasn’t settled down yet.

“Don’t know why I’m still kissing girls that I don’t love / Still stumbling out of these clubs / Still I’m just so hard to trust / Don’t know why I’m still a playboy,” he sings while dining with the cast of beautiful girls. “So many girls that I can’t count,” he later sings while taking a bubble bath with the Kelly twins.

During his recent interview with “The Breakfast Club,” Trey revealed that the show was never intended to be taken as a real life dating show, but a way to market his new music in a clever manner. Each week, Songz will release a new song off his next album Tremaine (due out March 24), along with an episode of “Tremaine the Playboy.”

Check out his new one below.

Exclusive: Joe & Ashanti Perform in Paris at L’Olympia

On Wednesday night (Feb. 22), French R&B fans were treated to a very special performance by two R&B legends who you wouldn’t normally expect to see together, Joe and Ashanti.  The two singers have teamed up for an early 2017 European tour, and they kicked off the trek in Paris at L’Olympia.

Ashanti took the stage first with her background dancers and delivered a commanding performance of her many classic hits, including favorites with Ja Rule (who didn’t join her) such as “Always On Time.”

Joe is known to be a consummate performer, always giving fans an excellent show, and this evening was no exception. The crooner treated the packed house to a more than stellar set of classics, and some new songs off his 2016 album #MyNameisJoeThomas. However, one of the biggest highlights of the night was Joe’s outstanding cover of Adele’s “Hello.” The singer/songwriter closed out his performance with his popular hit “I Wanna Know,” off his third album My Name is Joe.

Next up, Joe and Ashanti will perform a set of shows around the UK, starting tonight (Feb. 24) in Manchester, followed by Birmingham (Feb. 25), London (Feb. 26), Bristol (Feb. 27), and then to Utrecht, Netherlands on March 1.
