Trey’s Gotta Make It
An R&B fan from a young age, Trey got into singing in his youth and won a number of talent shows in his hometown of Petersburg, Virginia. At the age of 15, Trey caught the attention of producer Troy Taylor, known for his work with artists like B2K and Patti LaBelle. Taylor brought Trey to the attention of Atlantic Records, who signed Trey to their roster when he was only 17 years old.
Trey’s debut studio album “I Gotta Make It” was released in 2005 and hit number 20 on the Billboard 200 chart. His second album, 2007′s “Trey Day,” climbed even higher on the Billboard chart, peaking at number 11.
Trey followed up with the album “Ready” in 2009, which hit number 3 on the Billboard 200 chart, and later became Trey’s first release to be certified platinum.
The next year, Trey released “Passion, Pain and Pleasure,” which featured guest artists like Drake and Nicki Minaj. This time, the album hit number 2 on the Billboard 200, and was later certified gold.
The 2012 album “Chapter V” was Trey’s first number one. It featured guest verses from rappers like Lil Wayne, Young Jeezy, Rick Ross, Meek Mill, and Diddy. Two years later, Trey had another number one album with “Trigga,” which featured more big-name guest stars including Juicy J, Ty Dolla $ign, and even Justin Bieber.
Known today as an in-demand guest for hip-hop songs, Trey has also collaborated with R&B legends like R. Kelly, Toni Braxton, and Mary J. Blige.
In addition to landing all of his first five albums on the Billboard Top 20 chart, Trey has also had 15 Top Ten singles on the Billboard Hot R&B/Hip-Hop chart, all within the first decade of his career.
Trey’s musical efforts have earned him three Grammy nominations, but so far no victories. His first nomination came for the song “Can’t Help But Wait,” which was nominated in the category of Best Male R&B Vocal Performance in 2008. Two years later, “Ready” received a nomination for Best Contemporary R&B Album. Then, in 2013, Trey received his third Grammy nomination for the song “Heart Attack” in the category of Best R&B song.
Trey broke into the film world in 2008 with an appearance in “Queen of Media.” He has since landed roles in a number of movies and TV shows including “Preacher’s Kid,” Baggage Claim,” and “Texas Chainsaw 3D.”
