Trey Songz Says There's No Beef With R. Kelly
The song, which criticizes Kelly for his use of Auto-Tune, isn't that serious, according to Songz. "It wasn't a beef," revealed the singer, in an interview with MTV News. "It was me telling R. Kelly to take the damn Auto-Tune off his voice, which he did on his album. His album is good."
Songz also spoke about his next project, which he hopes to release soon. "I'm trying to make sure I have an album out ASAP," he said. "I ain't gonna tell you how soon, though. It's not gonna be two years. I wanna use the same recipe I've been using. If anybody is added, it'll be for real purpose. I spoke to Pharrell. I told him I'm getting in, Timbaland as well — both huge Virginian-grown producers. I definitely would love to work with them. But Troy Taylor I've been working with since the beginning of my career. Plus Bryan-Michael Cox I've had a couple hits with. I definitely wanna make sure we use the same chemistry."
Songz most recent release was 2009's Ready, which has been nominated at the 52nd Grammy Awards for "Best Contemporary R&B Album."
