Born as Tremaine Aldon Neverson on November 28, 1984, he’s the son of April (Gholson) Tucker. She was just seventeen years old when she gave birth to him. His father is Claude Neverson Jr.
Trey was raised by his mother and his stepfather. He was a shy kid growing up and as a result didn’t have any aspirations to be a musician.
Unlike other celebrities who started early in life, it wasn’t until he was 14 years old that he discovered his vocal abilities. Even then he was still reluctant to sing until he was encouraged by his family and friends in high school. The encouragement led him to start performing.
Songz’s stepfather saw his vocal talents right away and introduced him to his High School friend and Record producer, Troy Taylor. It didn’t take long for Troy to get convinced of his talents, ultimately leading to a recording contract in 2003 with Atlantic Records. That was the start of big things for Trey.
2003: This was the start of Songz musical career with the recording contract he signed with Atlantic Records.
2004-2008: Songz recorded his very own debut album as early as 2004, just a year after his recording contract with Atlantic Records.
Even while recording this debut album he was still busy releasing several mixtapes using the alias “Prince of Virginia”. He got some notoriety with one of the mixtapes “Open the Closet”, as it was an “answer track” to non other than R. Kelly’s “Trapped in the Closet”.
It took him over a year recording his debut album and finally released it in July 2005. Titled “I Gotta Make It”, it immediately shot to #20 on Billboard 200 and sold as many as 40,000 copies within the very first week.
The next year (2006), Songz worked with his longtime collaborator and Record producer, Troy Taylor on, what he called a follow-up album to his debut. This took over a year to work on and got released in October, 2007.
It did better than his debut as it reached as high as #11 on the same Billboard 200. It also sold many more copies than the debut, doing 73,000 in sales within the first week. It went on to sell more than 400,000 copies in the US.
In 2008 his single was nominated at the 2008 “50th Grammy Awards” for Best Male R&B Vocal Performance.
2009-2011: Trey Songz started working on a third album with his longtime collaborator and Record producer, Troy Taylor and few others such as Bryan-Michael Cox, Stargate and Sean Garrett.
His plan to make the third album more mature and successful than his first two albums paid off as it reached #3 on the same Billboard 200 after it got released in August 2009.
It also sold a lot more than the first two, selling 131,000 copies within the first week. Compared to his first two albums, the third really did a lot better.
It has already sold more than 1,000,000 records, and counting, in the US. It even earned the prestigious Platinum certification from the RIAA in 2014. This eventually became his very first Platinum album.
He went on to work on more singles such as “Successful”, featuring rapper Drake, in June 2009, “LOL Smiley Face”, featuring Soulja Boy Tell ‘Em and Gucci Mane, in August 2009, “I Invented Sex”, featuring Drake, in October 2009, “Say Aah”, featuring rapper Fabolous, in January 2010, “Neighbors Know My Name”, in February 2010,
