As he prepares for the release of his sixth album, Trey Songz recently sat down with Larry King on “Larry King Now” for an intimate conversation about the man he credits for his music education, what his mom sacrificed for his success, and how he really feels about being a sex symbol.
Larry asked Trey what it was like collaborating with Justin Bieber and Trey defended Bieber on his use of the N-word. He talked about what it’s like working with some of the artists he’s looked up to — like Jay Z and 50 Cent.
“Jay Z’s been an influence of mine since I was a young man,” said Trey. “50, he’s hilarious. 50’ll tell you some of the funniest stories you’ve ever heard.”
And the R&B singer weighed in on the significance of Obama’s presidency. “If you tell a young man of any color, race or creed that he can do anything, he can now believe it,” Trey said.
