Trey Songz - Passion, Pain & Pleasure Lyrics
- Release date: September 2010 -
"Passion, Pain & Pleasure" is the fourth studio album by American R&B singer Trey Songz, released on September 14, 2010(US), by Atlantic Records. Production for the album took place from March to July of 2010 and was handled by several record producers, such as Bei Maejor, Tha Bizness, Mario Winans, Mark Jackson, Kane Beatz and, of course, his longtime production partner, Songbook Entertainment founder Troy Taylor. The album's lead single, "Bottoms Up", featuring Nicki Minaj, was released on July 27, 2010 while the second single, "Can't Be Friends", was released in August 2010. Drake also makes an appearance on the album. This album is being promoted via his Summer 2010 tour with Monica.
Trey Songz took to Ustream to share a few sensual cuts from his upcoming fourth album. Throughout the broadcast, Songz lamented the leak of Pleasure tracks like "Love Faces" and "Doorbell," which began making the Internet rounds last week. "Shout out to everybody who didn't listen to the leaks," he said. But the singer brushed off the premature release of some of his tracks, adding, "Bootleggers gotta eat. I ain't mad at y'all boys". Songz also gave fans a taste of "Massage," another bedroom-burner dedicated to lavishing a lover with a head-to-toe rubdown that he frequently performs on the tour while hooking up a lucky concertgoer with an actual massage.
"While the words Passion, Pain and Pleasure immediately invoke sexual thoughts, for me they have become somewhat of a personal mantra because they so accurately describe this time in my life," says Trey Songz. "The passion I have for my art fuels my drive and work ethic, while the sacrifice of my personal life to benefit my career will always be a source of pain. The pleasure that I derive from my work and my accomplishments make everything worth it. When I began conceptualizing the new album, these three words stuck in my head. They completely infiltrated my creative process, so it was inevitable that they became the album title."
"This is the album where I talk to the people who think all I can sing about is sex," says Songz. "I take a step further out of that realm, although I do keep one foot in."
"I've had three albums before this, but only one was really a hit," he says. "This album will show that I'm not going anywhere."
