Synopsis

Amazon.com
If you're not feeling the first single off Trey Songz' Trey Day, don't give up. "Wonder Woman" is an acquired taste of a track whose techno beats won't sit right with those expecting straight-up R&B. The good news is that, despite some show-offy rap walk-ons and a little over-the-top R. Kelly-style lewdness (see "Grub On," in which our guy seduces his short-order shawty with the line, "Here's a tip/You can be my IHOP--you hop on top of me, I'll hop on top of you"), Trey Day trots out some gorgeous love songs and lines up top-tier Kelly-, Usher-, and Ne-Yo-reminiscent vocals with the kind of production you'd expect from a far more experienced artist. While the poppy standout "Missing You" pours sweet sentiments into a vocorder, though, the album's more traditional ballads will win over the soft-hearted with plain old well-executed prettiness. "We Should Be," for example, a Jimmy Jam & Terry Lewis composition, throws off sparks no 22-year-old singer should be able to set free. But Songz, proving he's an artist well worth punching your credit card numbers in for, lets them rip handily. --Tammy La Gorce

CD Reviews

Rap in R&B
Shamontiel L. Vaughn | Chicago | 10/02/2007
(3 out of 5 stars)

"If you liked R. Kelly's new album, chances are you will probably like the beginning of this album. Unfortunately, I wasn't feeling R. Kelly's latest album because of lyrics like "I almost called that girl a b---- again." I like R&B that's R&B, not melodic rap. Too many times on Trey Songz's album, he did more rapping than singing, especially at the beginning. I kept looking for standout songs like "Gotta Make It," but I came up short on this one. Can he sing? Definitely. Do I like his voice? Love it. Was I satisfied with this album? Not really. The lyrics were elementary (listen to "Grub On" and "Wonder Woman"), sometimes offensive (like the one above), and I wish he'd stop rapping altogether. All the rap guest appearances were NOT necessary. When I want to hear rap, I'll listen to rap. When I want to hear hip hop, I'll listen to hip hop. But I wanted this album to be like his last, where it was a LOT of soul and emotion and less time trying to be as hard as possible. However, when he started SERIOUSLY singing and you could tell the veins were showing in his neck, that's when I was like "Finally! There's the Trey I was waiting to hear." And when he did "Store Run," I gained so much more respect for him. It's not often that you hear ANYBODY, whether rapper or singer, talk about getting protection before they do the do. "Store Run" gets five stars."

"It's been awhile since I've done a review, (at least since I moved from Virginia Beach, VA to Portsmouth, VA), so here goes. I know Trey isn't a teen anymore, but the latest cd of his makes him a cast member of the American Pie movies-all sex and no substance. This suprises me because his first cd was on point and made me want to purchase this one-or maybe it's just the age difference between us that make me look for more. Each and every song was about some form of sex-rough sex, submissive sex, kinky sex, so forth and so on. I don't have a problem with it unless that's all that you have to offer. To be such a talented young man, this offering was pointless and empty. I won't totally give up on him, but I will listen to several tracks in whatever store has those automatic earphones first before I spend anymore money on him again."
Definetly a Must Own
Jason A. Wade | 02/14/2008
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Im telling you...this album is a must own if your a Trey Songz fan. Im a big fan of Trey so you might just think that im hypin this album, but it really is great. I like basically every track on the album. Trey is definetly one of the most under rated R&B artists out there now and if you listen to this album plus all of his mixtapes, you too will agree with me. This dude can sing and rap on the same song...but he'll make it come together just fine. Yes i must admit he does more rappin on this album than on "I Gotta Make It" but he switched his style up a little and im diggin it. Tyrese tryed to do it as well, but he didn't really blow with it. You'll most definetly love this album!!! GO COP IT!!!
TREY DAY IS MAYDAY!!!"
