AMP Music Minute: Lady Gaga Invests In New Celeb Social Media Startup And More! (page 2)
R&B crooner and Virginia native [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Trey Songz[/lastfm] is about to embark on a 19 show, 2 month tour called the Anticipation 2our. But before he gets deep into tour mode he wants to be able to give fans his 5th studio album, Chapter V, which he’s finishing up right now.
“I’m finishing the album now, actually,” the “Bottoms Up” singer told Billboard, but insisted that he was already thinking about touring. “I’m currently in Miami, and I have one more week until [tour] rehearsals, so that’s when I switch to full ‘tour mode’. The tour’s been very prevalent in my mind, but the record and making sure the album’s complete have been on my mind as well.”
[photogallerylink id=74522 align=left]While Trey doesn’t have an exact time frame for the album’s release, he does think this album offers something different that his previous albums haven’t, but still taps into the things his fans have come to expect from him. “I’m definitely trying to leap forward with every album, and with this album, I think it’s a leap forward and a leap into the past,” he said. This album overall should offer the total package, ”I want to embody in this album — this fifth album, which is very monumental for me — what I am, where I came from and where I’m going. I… just think it’s going to be a very fluent, very diverse yet very cohesive album.”
No doubt he’ll be performng his hits like “Say Aaah” and “Bottoms Up” from his 2010 release Passion, Pain & Pleasure, but also his singles from his 2011 EP, Inevitable. AMP will likely be hooking up some lucky listeners with tickets. Keep checking for updates on how to win tickets from AMP!
