Trey Songz premieres the video for his grown and sexy ballad “Sex Ain’t Better Than Love,” in which he sings about the joys of being a one-woman man, and making love to someone he is truly committed to.

“In life you make decisions, and you never get to see what would happen if you made a different choice,” says Songz.
“We see two sides of Trey,” describes director Juwan Lee. “There’s a ‘Sex Trey’ who meets all these different girls and his storyline moves seamlessly but the girls change in and out.
