Trey Songz

Main Stage
Thursday - 9:30 PM

Grammy-nominated R&B superstar Trey Songz is an award-winning singer-songwriter, rapper, producer and actor who the late Ahmet Ertegun proclaimed to be “among the most promising R&B artists we have had on Atlantic since we started the company 60 years ago.” “CHAPTER V,” his highly-anticipated fifth album and the follow up to his 2010 album “PASSION, PAIN & PLEASURE,” featured the multi-platinum hit “Bottoms Up (feat. Nicki Minaj)” and the #1 single “Can’t Be Friends,” both of which helped the album go on to secure RIAA Gold certification. The multi-faceted Songz also has an eye towards digital innovation and, with more than 30 million followers across varied social platforms, recently launched his own social network – The Angel Network – in partnership with Handmade Mobile.
