Trey Songz

MTV Unplugged

After three successful solo albums, R&B singer and perpetual ladies' favorite Trey Songz joins the club of popular hitmakers who have performed on MTV's long-running Unplugged series. Singing alongside a crack-shot eight-piece live band, he delivers an interesting mix of material, including several of his own hits ("I Need a Girl," "Say Aah," and "Panty Droppa"), a mash-up of "I Invented Sex" with Marvin Gaye's like-minded classic "Let's Get It On," and some unexpected covers like Sam Cooke's "A Change Is Gonna Come" as well as Kings of Leon's "Black Roses." While the majority of his songs are of the straight-ahead "love you down" variety, it's an unexpected and pleasant surprise to hear him shake things up, and the musicians who accompany him lend a much-welcome richness to the tracks. Relatively brief at just eight songs, it's still a quality release.
