Songbook Entertainment/Atlantic recording artist Trey Songz has announced the release of his hugely anticipated new album, “TRIGGA.” The collection – which includes the hit singles “SmartPhones,” “Foreign,” and the RIAA gold certified “Na Na” – arrives at retailers, DSP’s and streaming partners today. The R&B superstar gave fans a first listen of his sixth studio album by partnering with MTV for their global “MTV First” campaign.
With “TRIGGA,” Trey Songz has crafted his most intimate album yet, an honest and courageous set that more than confirms his status as the undisputed master of modern R&B, pop, and soul. The album is deeply personal and intensely creative, with songs like the international smash, “Change Your Mind” revealing a unique glimpse at the GRAMMY® Award-nominated superstar as a whole. What’s more, “TRIGGA” sees contributions from an array of stars, including Nicki Minaj, Justin Bieber, Juicy J, Mila J and fellow Atlantic recording artist and rising R&B star Ty Dolla $ign (see attached tracklisting).
Trey’s sixth studio collection, “TRIGGA” follows 2012’s blockbuster “CHAPTER V,” which debuted at #1 on both the Billboard 200 & Billboard Hip-Hop/R&B charts at #1, fueled by such hit singles as “Heart Attack” and “Simply Amazing.” “TRIGGA” will be further available in a Deluxe Edition, featuring four bonus preview tracks from the forthcoming “TREMAINE,” as well as a very special Target edition adding another three bonus tracks and sold exclusively at Target (www.target.com/p/trey-songz-trigga-deluxe-only-at-target/-/A-15715650).
Trey released his first single, “Na Na,” through his social platform, The Angel Network. The blockbuster song has already proven a multi-format favorite, first reaching the top 10 at Urban Mainstream and Rhythmic radio and now ascending at CHR/Pop outlets nationwide. Meanwhile, the DJ Mustard produced track’s companion video – which is directed by Gil Green & Trey Songz himself and features internet sensations: Rosa Acosta, Massy a.k.a Mankofit, Brie Bella and Nikka Bella a.k.a The Bella Twins and Jazzma Kendrick– continues to rock YouTube with over33 million views as of today at www.youtube.com/watch?v=v0Gu_Yh_keE.
“What’s Best For You,” the album’s most recent release, has quickly shot into the top 15 at Urban AC outlets across the country. The track’s official audio is streaming now at www.youtube.com/watch?v=cq7cnwhn0Jc; a companion video is in post-production, with a premiere date to be revealed soon. Companion videos for other “TRIGGA” cuts – including “SmartPhones” (www.youtube.com/watch?v=7sExF5B4G-U) and “Foreign” (www.youtube.com/watch?v=cjj2E9dwjjU), both of which were directed by Gil Green & Trey Songz – can be found at Trey’s official YouTube channel, www.youtube.com/user/TreySongzVideos.
Long regarded as a brilliant live performer, Trey will be among the stars at New Orleans’ Essence Music Festival, slated on July 3rd. The appearance follows recent performances at the Hot 97 Summer Jam 2014 and this weekend’s BET Experience Fan Fest at Los Angeles’ L.A. Live. For upcoming dates, please visit www.treysongz.com/tour.

Clear Channel CHR, Rhythmic CHR, and Urban AC stations featured a video live stream on their websites, and fans can also catch the Album Release Party on Yahoo Screen (www.yahoo.com/iheartradio). Next up is a special release day visit to ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel Live!, for an outdoor stage performance, tonight (check local listings).
