Muze PNote Any young R&B performer that can get Aretha Franklin to introduce his debut album must be doing something right. Although Trey Songz's I GOTTA MAKE IT opens with "A Message from Aretha," an uplifting bit of advice from the soul legend, the record isn't an old-school outing; this is hip-hop-inflected contemporary R&B in the R. Kelly vein.
Muze PNote The smooth, catchy single "Gotta Make It" appears twice here, first as a collaboration between the gently crooning Songz and the lightning-fast rapper Twista, and later as a remix featuring more words of wisdom from Franklin and the steady flow of Juvenile. Other highlights include the charming slow jam "Gotta Go" and the infectiously percussive "Just Wanna Cut." Though Songz is just one of many up-and-comers in early-2000s R&B, he downplays swaggering bravado in favor of a more amiable confidence, and this quality makes him a clear standout in the crowd.

Artist Overview

Although R&B star Trey Songz has had his fair share of requisite guest spots on various hardcore rap songs, he is cut from a more traditional cloth, which harks back to the classic days of R&B and soul, than many of his contemporaries. He signed to the venerable Atlantic Records and was heralded by its legendary founder, Ahmet Ertegun, as the next legend in the label's long line of soul and R&B performers. He released his debut, I GOTTA MAKE IT, in 2005 and quickly accomplished the goal of the album's title.

Professional Reviews

Entertainment Weekly (No. 831, p.69)
- "...a sexy collection of 11 slow jams and thumping grooves that pay homage to Motown's golden era. The disc not only bridges the stylistic gap between Marvin Gaye and R. Kelly, it warmly introduces hip-hop soul's finest new voice." Grade: A minus
