Trey Songz vs. Beyoncé

So, the Grammy nominations came out the other day. Nothing surprised me too much, except for this shocking nomination head-to-head in the Best Contemporary R&B Album category: Trey Songz vs. Beyoncé. I mean, y'all know I love me some Trey Songz, but Bey is my girl forever, and there's just no comparing the two. Not just at the Grammys, or in this specific category, or even in music - but at life in general. When it comes to life in general, no one can compete with Bey.

Anyway, inspired by this ridiculous comparison of talent, I did some YouTube searching for Beyoncé/Trey Songz mash-ups, and found this amazing piece of work. It's actually not a mash-up, but essentially a cover Songz did of Beyoncé's song(z) Ego. He took her beat and rapped/sang over it, making up his own lyrics. And they. are. amazing.


My appreciation for what some people call terrible - and I call amazing - songwriting is well-known; but this is just taking it a bit too far, no?: If I say I'm the shit, then maybe you could be my tissue roll.

Oh, and it's worth noting that the short clip of music playing at the beginning of the YouTube video is actually from Weezy's "Let The Beat Build," which is the best song* from Tha Carter III.

*this shit is my jam

  2. I am a New York transplant myself and many of my uniquely New York experiences end up in my own blog, Collology. Your blog is much more visually stimulating, but I think you'll particularly relate to some of my posts:

    About unexpected conversations on the subway:

    About trying to make it cross-town:

    And about the "characters" you meet on the street:

  4. At the risk of being beaten verbally for voicing my opinion, I am going to have to go with Trey Songz on this one. His album is GREAT. I'm not really that big of a Beyonce fan though so, maybe that's why.

  6. Trolling the blogs of note and came across yours. My wife and I did the same "land in ny with no freakin clue and sort it all out" thing for a number of years before moving out to Vancouver, Canada. In the end, it was an amazing experience, we seperately fell in love with the city, then met and fell in love with each other, then together fell in love with the city in a different way. It's been three years and we still miss it terribly, sometimes worse than others (the fall...). Anyway, your blog brought me right back to those years in the city, the different language new yorkers speak, and the unique experience of being part of that life. Excited to keep reading.
