The word on the street is Jay-Z‘s in Trey Songz ear heavy, trying to get Trey Songz to join to Roc Nation for management.
Trey Songz is now managed by Kevin Liles. Kevin Liles has an extensive music background; his company manages Big Sean, Chrisette Michele, D’Angelo, Estelle, Raheem DeVaughn, Selita Ebanks, Terrence J, and Young Jeezy. Kevin Liles recently announced his partnership with MWW Entertainment. This thought out strategic business collaboration with Michael Kempner, CEO of MWW may not be enough to stop Jay-Z and the Roc Nation crew from persuading Trey to join Roc Nation.
Trey Songz at one time was hotter than Chris Brown! (Some say due to default with the Chris Brown and the Rihanna incident in 2009) which is why Jay-Z doesn’t deal with Chris Brown at all. It seems as if he has a vendetta to knock Chris Brown off of his high horse. Even though Jay never publicly speaks on Chris.
“Use them before they use you” Jay-Z’s motto! Which, I understand. Think about it?! Jay knows who to trust and who not to trust. A lot of people are salty with Jay because they feel he is stingy with breaking bread (making money), but the real deal is, Jay is not dumb by any means. He is a genius, he knows who to do business with and who not to. The few that he did trust (business wise) they crossed him or got too big for their britches and he cut them off like a bad habit.
Does Jay have an “ultimate vendetta” against Chris? Maybe or maybe not, the truth is Trey Songz is talented and attractive and I believe Roc Nation would compliment Trey Songz. Can Trey Songz sell more records under Roc Nation? Can Roc Nation make Trey Songz a bigger brand? Jay-Z is a business man, and he is not stopping until he gets what he wants or until he is satisfied with the result. I think the decision will be easy for Trey Songz whose loyalty is questionable already? Trey Songz had no problem leaving D2 management for a “so-called” better opportunity. His potential is greatness and that’s what Jay-Z sees in him. Trey is Kevin’s biggest R&B artist on his roster. This will be a no brainer for Trey……..Roc Nation can offer… for starters tours with Rihanna, hits songs written by Ester Dean, lifetime membership at 40/40 (joking) and Jay will definitely hop on his song and make it platinum.
Can Jay-Z take Trey Songz to another level?
The answer is YES… Jay can make anyone hot, it’s just up to the artist to take the torch once Jay passes it and run like hell with it. I don’t think Trey would have an issue, because he already has a solid fan base, maybe not as big as Chris Brown’s, but his fans are loyal… I don’t see this being an issue!
Will this move hurt Kevin Liles? I would think so! Probably now more than ever, Kevin Liles began managing Trey Songz not exactly by choice but because Warner Brothers was tired of Kevin sitting in his office all day collecting a check, that didn’t equal work ( so we hear)…..So he stepped down as executive VP to manage Trey Songz.
Time will tell once everything unfolds. Roc Nation or Not?
This video is just a flash back, and history! I do miss Dame and I really wonder what happened to these two.
