Trey Songz: "Opening the Closet"

from All Hip-Hop:

TREY SONGZ VS R.KELLY

I’ve been avoiding this rumor, but there is R&B BEEF on the grill. So, this new dude Trey Songz and R.Kelly are going head to head like a pair of battering rams. This whole thing started out as one of Kelly’s songs for his new CD, “The Closet.” This is another steamy, overly hot song about cheating. In the song, Kelly can’t leave the house of another woman, because her hubby is in the house… So, Kelly apparently left the ending open and there are four other parts to the saga. Along comes new jack Trey Songz and his song called “Opening The Closet!” From what I understand, his song is from the perspective of the man that’s about to open the closet on the cheater. Problem is Trey Songz’s song is getting quite a bit of play and its casting a shadow on Kelly’s original. Atlantic, Songz’s label, didn’t release it, but he is signed to the label. To complicate matters, I heard that Kelz is trying to work out a label deal with Warner Music/ Atlantic and lil’ ole’ Trey Songz is jamming up the process. We’ll see what’s what with this one.


Hillary sent "Opening the Closet" to me last week, but I didn't put it up right away because I had no idea what the hell it was. Who is Trey Songz, anyway? It's pretty obviously not a parody, or at least not a successful one, as proven by the fact that it's not nearly as funny as the original. I thought perhaps it was supposed to be the song retold from the cuckold's POV, but since he woke up with a chick at the beginning I figured that couldn't be it, either. Apparently it is supposed to be, though, and unfortunately for poor Mr. Songz the narrative thread of Kells' original epic renders this response immediately irrelevent. Other than the Febreeze ref, there's basically no compelling reason to listen to this thing.
