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.
