I'll let you in on a little secret — when it comes to R&B, all I really look for is sex. You know, the type of sleaze that made R. Kelly so iconic in the early and mid 90s. Contemporary artists like The-Dream and Drake understand this and bring the right balance of cocky swagger and sexytime to the track. I'll be completely honest here and just say that my familiarity with Trey Songz' work peaks somewhere around his high-profile, high-swagger collaboration with Drake; "Successful" from Drizzy's So Far Gone mixtape. On "The Usual", Trey Songz is reunited with Drake to make up what is shaping up to some sort of R&B dream team making dream sex jams, just how I like. Hear/download the song below:
Oh and if you couldn't already tell, the track is via Hip Hop Connection, who seem to be ahead of the curve. While I still have your attention, I suggest you also check out Trey Songz guest on Amerie's "Pretty Brown" from last year's quite delectable In Love and War.
