You know Trey Songz of course, but do you know Tremaine? Since the release of his 2005 Atlantic Records debut I Gotta Make It, singer, actor, entrepreneur, performer, and Virginia native Trey Songz has sold over 20 million combined albums and singles, achieved two GRAMMY® Award nominations, landed back-to-back #1 debuts on the Billboard Top 200 with the RIAA gold-certified Chapter V in 2012 and RIAA platinum-certified TRIGGA in 2014, and staunchly carried a tradition of classic R&B into the 21st century. He has seduced sold out audiences everywhere around the globe, earning the nicknames “Mr. Steal Your Girl” and the man who “invented sex” by crooning with irresistible and inimitable passion. A multi-faceted entertainer, he took over the big screen in blockbusters such as Texas Chainsaw Massacre 3D and Baggage Claim and launched his very own line of spirits—SX Liquors. In 2017, he reveals himself like never before on his seventh full-length album and most poignant, powerful, and personal project to date, Tremaine The Album [Atlantic Records]. “My real name is Tremaine, so that had to be the title because it’s my most vulnerable body of work,” the artist admits. “What you’re hearing is where I am in my life. It’s a soundtrack to me figuring it out. I’ve been blessed. I’ve seen the world. I’ve had so much success. Sharing my love is important and I want people to get to know Tremaine.” In the middle of touring behind TRIGGA and TRIGGA RELOADED, he took every opportunity to record—often pulling double duty and holing up in the studio after shows until the morning for the better part of two years. Recording took place everywhere from Miami, New York, and Los Angeles to London, France, and South Africa. Along the way, he made a conscious decision to strip the sound back to its most basic elements with classic production and no features across the 15 tracks. Inspired by the likes of R&B greats in the past.
