Trey Songz: The Story
The American singer, rapper, and songwriter known as Trey Songz was born Tremaine Aldon Neverson on November 28, 1984, in Petersburg, Virginia. He spent his childhood as a military brat, traveling around the country, as his stepfather was stationed at different military bases. After settling back in Petersburg at the age of 14, Trey was introduced to record producer Troy Taylor, which eventually led to a contract with Atlantic Records. After graduating from Petersburg High School, Trey Songz’s net worth started looking up.
With $100,000 in advance, Trey Songz started working on his debut album. Meanwhile, he released several mixtapes under the alias Prince of Virginia. The album, ‘I Gotta Make It’, noted moderate success. His second, more mainstream-oriented album, ‘Trey Day’ came in 2007, and reached number 11 on the Billboard charts. Awaiting for his big breakthrough to come in the form of mainstream success and increased album sales, Trey Songz completely changed his sound, opting for more club-ready tracks.
The single ‘Can’t Help But Wait’, a soundtrack for the movie ‘Step Up 2 the Streets’ and promo for his next album, peaked at number two on the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart. His third album, ‘Ready’ reached number 3 on the Billboard 200, sold 131,000 copies in its first week, and eventually went platinum. The album, which featured Drake, Soulja Boy, Fabolous, and Gucci Mane, helped him win the 2010 BET Award for Best Male R&B Artist.
Songz’s fourth and most personal album, ‘Passion, Pain & Pleasure’, was promoted by the single ‘Bottoms Up’ featuring Nicki Minaj and peaked at number 6 on the Billboard 100. In 2012, Songz embarked on the Anticipation 2our to promote the ‘Anticipation 2’ mixtape and his fifth album, ‘Chapter V’, which debuted at number one on the Billboard 200. Trey Songz net worth was estimated at $6.8 million that year.
Songz’s next collaboration was with Young Yeezy for the song ‘Ordinary’ and then with Mariah Carey on her single ‘You’re Mine (Eternal)’. 2014 saw the rapper as a feature on 50 Cent’s single entitled ‘Smoke’, after which the musician released his sixth album ‘Trigga’, debuting at number one on the US Billboard 200.
Songz digitally released his next album, ‘Intermission I & II’, followed by the Between the Sheets Tour with Chris Brown, featuring Tyga. ‘Tremaine The Album’ came in 2017, preceding Tremaine The Tour with MIKExANGEL. Trey Songz’s net worth in 2017 was put at $12 million. The biggest part of it comes from Trey Songz’s salary which is estimated to be $1.5 million a year.
Songz has tried his hand in acting, too. He appeared in ‘Queen of Media’, Preacher’s KidMonty’, ‘Baggage Claim’, and starred in Texas Chainsaw 3D. Throughout his career, the artist has had numerous deals with some of the greatest brands, including Adidas, Grey Goose, Rocawear, Mecca USA, and Kodak. Back in 2015, the R&B superstar entered into the spirits game by co-launching SX Liquors. Trey Songz’s liquor brand offers a range of tequila, vodka, and rum drinks. Trey Songz’s endorsements are accounted for over $300,000 of his net worth.
