Speaking with Billboard.com, Trey Songz associated his latest album, Chapter V, debuting atop the Billboard 200 as proof that R&B music is still very much viable.
“People were in need of real R&B and really appreciated this body of work from me when there aren’t a lot of your favorite R&B artists giving you R&B albums. It’s not even that it’s real R&B or fake R&B; it’s that you have a lot of your favorite R&B singers making pop music right now. And in this time it was very important for me to stay true to myself and stay true to the music that’s gotten me to the point where I am right now.”
Meanwhile, Trey also discussed his latest single, “Fumble,” and how the song came about:
“‘Fumble’ is actually a song that came in late on the album. It’s basically a song about having the one person that’ll do whatever for you, the one person that’ll go to the end of the world and back, and you not realizing it until it’s damn near too late. It’s essentially about having someone’s heart in your hands and dropping it.”
