Watch out, Trigga is coming back!

Hot off his remix of Belly and The Weeknd’s “Might Not,” Trey Songz takes on Kodak Black’s single “Skrt!”

Pulling from the original’s infectious chorus, Trigga uses “SKRT2” to sing-rap about everything from women to his new plans. “I’m just thuggin’, f*ckin’ ’round, but the album on the way,” spits Trey.

The R&B star is currently prepping for the release of his Tremaine album, which is the follow-up to 2014’s Trigga and last year’s Trigga Reloaded.

Indie: Torre South Releases “#Hashtag” Video


It goes down in the DM.

Earlier this year indie artist Torre South debuted his new single “#Hashtag,” which is the first release off of his upcoming album, titled #TSM100K.

Today, the Atlanta based singer/songwriter premieres the song’s official music video, which brings his modern hook-up anthem to life. Opening with South’s sexy co-star laying in bed, the two converse back and forth via social media as he sings: “I got a PYT in my DMs, she’s always sending me pics / Gave her my number on the DL, told her don’t call me baby, text.”

After receiving the cue to come thru from his new lover (her response being, “#imready #noclothes #comegetit”), Torre hops in the truck and goes on to flirt via hashtags back and forth until they rendezvous at her apartment. Rapper Muknee spits his complementary verse from a rooftop while his girl seduces the camera.

It’s clear social media dating is working for them.

Torre’s #TSM100K is due out this summer. Check out his new video below!
