Trey Songz & Drake Sound ‘Successful’

drake_trey_songz.jpgJust stop. Stop it right now. I already know what you're going to say. "Why in the hell is this track even being featured on this website?" Because I like it. Because I like the whispy sounds in the background that sound as if this song was partially recorded in a wind tunnel. Because I have been giving Trey Songz more of a pass ever since he surprised me during the O'Jays tribute on those shameful BET Awards. Because even though I have never understood why everyone constantly jocks Drake, I think his rhymes add rather than detract from the track. Also, be grateful that this is not the original version that Drake did with Lil' Wayne that featured the mention of wanting "hoes" in addition to "money, cars, and clothes." And for all those reasons I think you should give this track more than a cursory listen. Feel free to posit about it in the comments. [H/T:BC]

  1. HEARD THIS SONG AWHILE AGO AND IT'S ACTUACLLY ALREADY BEEN ADDED TO THE RADIO STATION I WORK FOR...THE SONG IS PRETTY NICE...I LIKE TREY SONGZ BC HE CAN ACTUALLY SING I JUST WISH HE WOULD QUIT THE R&B THUG ROUTINE...

  2. I agree with you on Trey and the Ojay's tribute but thats where it stops. Drake seems like a low carb version of kanye. I dont really know who this kid is, I mean I aint actively going out checking on this kid, he does have a buzz but we know how fleeting that can be. Trey should had Common, Talib, LL, Q-tip or any MC who really knows how to ride a slow jam on this collabo. I think i'd like the song more if Trey did it solo.

    Can anyone name 1 song that Trey song vocals are not extremely pitch corrected? Come on man... the background vocals border on T-Pain territory
    I like Drakes stuff, although he sounds like Wayne at times. Nice to hear some real lyrics.

  4. Been hearing this song on the airwaves for a couple of weeks now. I love me some Trey Songz. And yes, he was very impressive during the O'Jay's tribute. As for Drake, I'm about tired of the hype.

  5. I liked Drake before he became mainstream and have been digging this song since the So Far Gone mixtape was released with the version that has Drake, Trey and Wayne. I'm also a BIG Trey fan (reppin VA and all that jazz) and this song was my favorite on the mixtape. ok listening now and this seems like just a radio edit they are beeping out the "hoes" and Trey has a new verse on the end.

  6. I am a big fan of the site and have been for some time. I usually am in accordance with the bulk of topics broached and opinions highlighted on SOULBOUNCE, however I must comment on the Trey Songz's performance during the O'Jays tribute being deemed good. I thought that he was so completely out of place during the whole performance. His vocal abilities were underwhelming at best and was outperformed by an inform Tyrese and even a subdued Johnny Gill. Trey Songz had serious pitch issue and was cracking all over the place. He is indicative of the mediocrity that is commonplace in R&B music.

    This song is getting played out here already lol, but I like Drake. Then again I know him by his gov't-- Aubrey Graham or "Jimmy" from the teen TV show he was on (way to show my age), so I've been a fan of his for quite awhile now. Initially I was super skeptical that he'd have any rhyming skills but he proved me wrong on his first mixtape, which IMO is much better cuz you could tell it was his genuine style. The Wayne/Kanye vibes he's been giving off lately are starting to irk my nerves, but I saw that one coming..Hopefully he'll revert back and stay true to himself, but I'd still rather listen to him over this other bull ANYDAY.
