About Trey Songz
Trey Songz, real name Tremaine Aldon Neverson, is a singer, songwriter, occasional actor and a record producer from the United States. Trey rose to prominence in 2005, with the release of his first album I Gotta Make It. Since then he has released five more successful albums, Tray day, Ready, Passion, Pain & Pleasure and most recently Chapter V. Trey Songz net worth is currently estimated at $10 million.
Tremaine was born in 1984 in Virginia. He was raised in a military brat among the other children whose parents served full-time in the armed forces. As a child Tray never actually considered pursuing career in the music industry, he was simply too shy to climb on the stage. Tremaine did not think about the career in music, but his friends and family recognized his talent and encouraged him to use it. Thanks to them today Trey Songz net worth has reached $10 million. With a little push from the side a boy started performing at school and other local events at the age of 14. When he was 16 Tray participated in a talent show and was noticed by a record producer Troy Taylor. This acquisition eventually led to Trey landing a contract with Atlantic records.
The deal promised to boost Trey Songz net worth to incredible heights and the young artist took off to New Jersey right after the graduation.
Recording process took longer than expected and before an album appeared in the stores Trey released several mixtapes. One of the songs entitled “Open the Closet” was recorded as an answer to the famous R. Kelly song “Trapped in the Closet”. This joke has brought Trey some wider attention and arguably helped to increase the sales of his debut album. I Gotta Make It was released in summer of 2006.
It hit the U.S. Billboard 200 at No. 20 and eventually sold over 300 thousand copes nationwide. The sales form this album added a considerable sum to Trey Songz net worth and helped him gain a national recognition. The leading single I Gotta Make It was released a few months earlier than the album itself. The track recorded featuring Twista was received with a lot of enthusiasm in the community of R’n’B and hip-hop fans, bet failed to achieve a mainstream popularity. Contrary to the expectations of his producers Trey’s second single Gotta Go was way more successful and captured the mainstream audience.
Trey’s second album Ready was released in 2009 and became an instant commercial success. It peaked at No. 3 on the U.S Billboard 200 and sold over 130 thousand copies during the week after release. Ready eventually went on to sell 800 thousand records nationwide. The sales from this album are responsible for the good bulk of current Trey Songz net worth.
