Single Review: Trey Songz x Young Jeezy, ‘Ordinary’

I DO NOT LIKE THIS SONG! Let’s just get that out the way. I am SO SICK of hearing the same basic music about the club, different checks, and hearing n*gga in every other word of a verse/hook. I have nothing against Trey Songz steering away from R&B. He’s an artist and as an artist he has the creativity to do that. At the end of the day he’s an R&B artist, but he went for more of that club / hip hop route since Passion, Pain & Pleasure. Chapter V really touched on that. I am a Trey Songz fan. I have been in love with his music since I first saw the video for ‘Gotta Make It.’ Now it’s just like he’s lazy or something. He just puts music out and the concept is what? Picking up a chick in the club? I’m not impressed and I know that Trey Songz can make better quality music than this. As a fan I’m not expecting him to make love songs all the time. I’m not expecting every song to be a ballad, BUT conceptually he needs to get back to what he started with. Featuring a rapper on the track does not guarantee radio play.

This track is as ‘ORDINARY’ as it gets. Trey Songz sings about a girl. Insinuates a possible threesome. Talks about taking a girl home, his sex game, Jeezy starts rapping, BLAH BLAH BLAH! It’s boring, there’s no story. The song is the typical club type formula. Meet girl, flirt with girl, get another girl, take girl home, have sex, move on to the next. It’s degrading yes, but it’s beyond degrading that gets me about these R&B singers.

To sum it all up, Trey Songz can do better, he’s written better, he’s a better artist, and if THIS is what’s on his next album, I WILL NOT BE PURCHASING!
