Trey Songz’s Jill

Last week, Jill Scott made headlines and gained a ton of new fans after a clip of one of her live shows went viral. In the midst of the chaos it created fellow singer/songwriter Trey Songz paid tribute to the Philly native in an unforgettable way. His latest single: Jill.

The nearly four and a half minute song features a sample of “He Loves Me (Lyzell in E Flat) from Scott’s 2000 debut Who is Jill Scott: Words and Sounds Vol. 1. The combination of Trey Songz and Jill Scott is different in a good way. Leave it to Trey Songz to improve on perfection while paying homage.

A win for Trey Songz to say the least after he debuted the song last night, Jill Scott took to Twitter to give it her stamp of approval. Scott tweeted:

In the midst of simple minded, affection starved foolishness, this song is actually quite beautiful.

Fabolous & Trey Songz had a Trappy New Years

Trouble in Detroit isn’t the only thing Trey Songz made headlines for this passed week. Earlier this month the Virginia born crooner made some appearances on Fabolous’s Instagram page while working on music together in California and the result made for a very Trappy New Years. 

The six track mixtape made its debut just in time to be the soundtrack for everyone’s New Year’s Eve events. The duo debuted their rendition of some of 2016’s dopest songs including “Bad & Boujee” and “Keys To The Street”. 

Trappy New Years complete with a countdown to its release and fireworks on the cover art. Of course the effort was dominated by Fabolous and Trey Songz up and comer Mike Angel lends vocals to “Pick Up The Phone”.

The Remix We’ve Been Wishing For

As if DJ Drama’s “Wishing” wasn’t a big enough hit this summer, today he debuted the remix. Announced on Instagram, DJ Drama knew just what to do to build anticipation for the drop. The artwork appeared on Instagram this morning followed by the release this afternoon.

The original appeared on Drama’s Quality Street Music 2 which hit streets this passed July and featured a solid line up of r’n’b megastar Chris Brown, Inglewood based rapper Skeme and Maryland native LyQuin. This time around the DJ recruited an all-star cast of Fabolous, Trey Songz, Tory Lanez and Jhene Aiko.

Fabolous’ verse may sound familiar to Fab’s fans, as it appeared on his Summertime Shootout 2, which it was released earlier this month. Trey Songz reminded the world that he’s still smooth as silk. Tory Lanez maintains that the new school still has something to offer and Jhene Aiko lends a woman’s touch, that changes the dynamic just a bit.
