The "Wait" Is Over for Trey Songz; "Can't Help But Wait" Shoots to #1 at Urban Mainstream; R&B's Prince of Virginia Lights I

NEW YORK, NY -- (MARKET WIRE) -- 12/19/07 -- "Can't Help But Wait," the new single from Songbook Entertainment/Atlantic recording artist Trey Songz, has leapt to the top of the Urban Mainstream chart, beating out such superstars as Alicia Keys, Chris Brown, and Kayne West. The newly crowned #1 track is the second hit single taken from Trey's breakthrough sophomore album, "TREY DAY," released this past October.

Along with its amazing success at radio, "Can't Help But Wait" is now poised to enter the top 10 on Billboard's "Hot 100." In addition, the track's companion video -- co-starring actor Jackie Long ("ATL," "Idlewild") -- is currently in major rotation at BET, BETJ, MTV Jams, VH1 Soul, Music Choice, and Nickelodeon's The N.

The Stargate-produced "Can't Help But Wait" is also lighting things up online, with total streams at Trey's MySpace page -- www.myspace.com/treysongz -- now exceeding 3 million. Furthermore, the "Can't Help But Wait" video can now be viewed on over 45 different online sites, including AOLMusic.com, Alloy.com, XXLMag.com, and Trey's own YouTube site, www.youtube.com/TreySongzVideos.

As if all that weren't enough, an exclusive remix of "Can't Help But Wait" featuring the one and only Plies will be included on the soundtrack to the eagerly anticipated "Step Up 2 The Streets," arriving in theatres nationwide on February 14th.

Finally, Trey's original holiday jam, "Keep Me Warm (On Christmas)," is now available via iTunes. The digital-only single -- sure to become a seasonal favorite -- was co-written by Songz and his longtime collaborator, Songbook Entertainment founder Troy Taylor (Pretty Ricky, Tyrese).

"TREY DAY" made a stunning chart debut this fall, entering Billboard's "Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums" tally at #2, while also exploding onto the Billboard 200 at #11. The album -- which includes the hit single, "Wonder Woman" -- sees Songz teaming up with a stunning selection of studio superstars, including Songbook Entertainment founder Troy Taylor (Pretty Ricky, Tyrese), Danja (Justin Timberlake, Nelly Furtado), Bryan Michael Cox (Danity Kane, Mary J. Blige), the Runners (Young Jeezy, Trick Daddy) Jimmy Jam & Terry Lewis (Janet Jackson, Mary J. Blige), Dre & Vidal (Usher, Chris Brown), Bei Maejor (Bun B, Chris Brown), Eric Hudson (Omarion, Joe, John Legend), and the one and only R. Kelly. Furthermore, "TREY DAY" includes guest shots by such hip-hop luminaries as Jim Jones and UGK's Bun B, as well as A&R direction by former Dru Hill member, Tamir "Nokio" Ruffin. The album's Executive Producers are Troy Taylor, Delante Murphy, and Kevin Liles. The Co-Executive Producer is Trey Songz.

The 22-year-old singer has celebrated "TREY DAY" with TV appearances throughout 2007, including live performances on BET's "106 & Park" and "It's Showtime At The Apollo," not to mention a featured spot on BET's annual "Rip The Runway" extravaganza, modeling fashion created by some of today's hottest designers. Trey -- aka "the Prince of Virginia" -- was also among the VA-based artists showcased on MTV2's "My Block," alongside such like-minded musicians as Timbaland, Pharell, and the Clipse.

What's more, Songz has been profiled in a variety of national publications, highlighted by cover features in Right On!, Floss, and an upcoming issue of Black Beat. Other recent magazine appearances include Sister 2 Sister, WordUp!, SBH, Blackmen, XXL Presents Hip-Hop Soul, Giant, Hype Hair, and Rap Fanatic.

Hailed by the late, great Atlantic Records founder Ahmet Ertegun as "among the most promising R&B artists we have had on Atlantic since we started the company 60 years ago," Trey Songz first burst to the forefront of modern urban music in 2005 with his critically acclaimed debut, "I GOTTA MAKE IT." The album featured the breakout single, "Gotta Make It," featuring the one and only Twista, who then invited Songz to join him on his top 20 smash, "Girl Tonite." Other high-profile collaborations followed for Trey, including featured appearances on tracks by a wide range of artists, spanning hip-hop heroes like Trick Daddy, Yung Joc, Paul Wall, Saigon, and Obie Trice; soca star Kevin Lyttle; and the sadly departed R&B/soul legend, Gerald Levert.
