Having already praised the B. Cox produced One Love, Trey manages to remain consistent with this offering taken from his new album READY.
A little less dramatic than One Love and more realistic, Holla If Ya Need Me has Trey crooning like only he can, the concept is sweet, this is R&B, there was a surge of Hip-Hop influenced R&B for a while, the King of R&B himself, R. Kelly, released a autotune dependant mixtape, so something was clearly wrong, Trey stepped up to take R&B in the right direction and this track personifies that.
Trey does not try to sing his heart out on this one, which is a good thing, as it would over-shadow the ultimate feeling, his talent can never be denied, from his first single ‘Just Gotta Make It ft. Twista’, his vocal ability was evident and so it has come to no surprise of the improvement made so far. Produced by Troy Taylor (the man who ultimately discovered Trey Songz), this song possesses an emotion, anyone who has been or is in such a situation will most definitely take to this record.
Ready is in stores now and is being considered R&B Album of the Year, personally, I felt that it could have been better, after listening to his pre-album mixtape entitled ‘Anticipation’, there was more R&B quality, but as a whole for a mass audience tracks like ‘LOL 🙂‘ and ‘Black Roses‘ make it more than just an R&B album.
Look out for more Trey Songz reviews to come, in the mean time “Holla If Ya Need Me”
