After a huge year, R&B’s new posterboy Trey Songz is back with the single off his upcoming album Passion, Pain & Pleasure. Utilizing the abilities of Banger University graduate Kane Beatz, Mr. Steal Your Girl creates a new anthem for all the pretty girls in your local hot spot. You would think after a smash like Say Aah that Trey would leave the Nuvo and Patron alone for a minute but hey, if it’s not broke don’t fix it. Kane’s production is way different than Songz’s smash single anyway; Bottoms Up has a more immediate, hard feel to it and even in front of a myriad of signature ad libs, Trey’s vocals are still on point. Oh, and as for Nicki Minaj’s guest verse? The Harajuku Barbie plays Jekyll and Hyde as she seamlessly switches from a hyper crunchy flow to a creamier than peanut butter whisper throughout her entire feature. Displaying not only her innate ability to rhyme, but a dope singing voice to match, Nicki’s appearance here is a highlight. Trey Songz’s Passion, Pain & Pleasure album is out on Sept. 14… now I can drink to that.
