Update: Click “Listen Now” above to watch Trey Songz’ “What I Be On” video.
If you’ve had your browser locked to the Booth, you know that, in addition to his usual R&B sh*t, the Trey Songz has also been on some “other sh*t”—more specifically, rap sh*t. Fresh off showcasing those respective sh*ts on two separate mixtapes (Anticipation 2 and #LemmeHolDatBeat 2, both released today), Trigga delivers some combination-type sh*t (OK, I’m done saying “sh*t,” I promise) on the lead single off his next studio album, mixing the heavy swag and paper-stacking subject matter of his hip-hop material with his characteristically smooth vocal style. What I Be On, Phenom and Troy Taylor‘s mechanical, synth-accented strut sets the stage for braggadocious verses from the heavyweight crooner. After Songz is done soulfully flaunting his bulging bankroll and his female appeal, East Coast mainstay Fabolous grabs the mic to do a little caked-up stunting of his own. So, Booth readers, are you feeling what Trey Songz is on? If so, keep it locked to The DJBooth for the latest news and tunes leading up to the release of Inevitable EP out November 28, and Chapter 5 in 2012.
