After recruiting T.I. for his recent single, “2 Reasons,” Trey Songz has linked up yet again with two more southern rappers. This time the VA singer calls on Young Jeezy and Lil Wayne to add some bars to the third single off his upcoming album, Chapter V. Titled “Hail Mary,” the track sees Trey sticks to a familiar formula by releasing a track geared towards the club.
Is the track worth the hype? Check it out below:
Truth be told, I haven’t checked for a Trey Songz record since Ready, and “Hail Mary” doesn’t make me want to change that reality. The song is nothing but a remake of everything he’s put out since achieving chart success with “Say Aah.” In fact, the only enjoyable part about the record is the contribution from Jeezy. Now I’m not saying Trey needs to have the lyrical versatility of say R. Kelly, but there is more to life than alcohol and sex
even though it kills me to admit it.
The irony in all of this, though, is that Trey continues forging ahead with redundancy despite not achieving similar levels of success (before you mention “Bottoms Up,” let’s not forget Nicki Minaj was featured on the track). But seriously can you blame the record-buying public? Why buy the new record when it’s nothing more than a
sad rehashing of previous efforts? You don’t.
