Trey Songz Gets In His Feelings on His 31st Birthday

Singer pens emotional open letter.

Published November 28, 2015

Trey Songz turned 31 this weekend, and the birthday seemed to have stirred up some self-reflection within the singer. The R&B star, born Tremaine Neverson, decided to put pen to paper and pour his heart out to his fans in an emotional open letter.

"A lot of people place me on a pedestal and sometimes I fall short," he writes. "... I'm going through some s**t like we all are. I look in the mirror and I judge myself like we all do. I want to make it to the better version of myself."


He goes on to explain that — besides this letter — he tries to keep his feelings contained in his songs. "My brightest days and my darkest hours come through in my music," he writes. 

After revealing that a friend he played some new music for described the songs as "dark," Trigga hints at new material on the way. "This letter could be a lot longer but I just put it in the songs," he continues. "I give you my love, my confusion, my worries, my happiness, my sadness, my music."

He delivered a mixtape the same day, To Whom It May Concern (listen below).
