NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - Aug 21, 2012) - Songbook Entertainment/Atlantic Records Trey Songz' fifth studio album, "CHAPTER V," arrives in stores and online everywhere today. The album -- which features the hits "Heart Attack," "2 Reasons (featuring T.I.)," and "Dive In" -- features collaborations with Lil Wayne, Young Jeezy, T.I., Rick Ross, Meek Mill & Diddy and production from the likes of Benny Blanco, Rico Love, Troy Taylor and even Trey's brother, Alex Neverson. An exclusive deluxe edition of "CHAPTER V" features bonus songs and content including "Ladies Go Wild," "Almost Lose It," and the music videos for "Heart Attack" and "2 Reasons (Feat. T.I.)."
Songz plans to celebrate the release of "CHAPTER V" with a string of high-profiled activities including performances on this morning's TODAY Show, VH1's "The Big Morning Buzz" and BET's 106th & Park, the latter having dedicated an entire episode to the R&B superstar and paying homage to his journey to his current success (check local listings). Earlier this month, Trey directed the companion video for "Hail Mary" in Miami, FL. Rappers Young Jeezy and Lil Wayne co-starred alongside comedian Kevin Hart, who co-directed the video with Trey.
As if all this weren't enough, Songz is featured in the latest edition of retailer Wal-Mart's "Soundcheck" series, which includes exclusive interviews and commentary as well as performances of his current hits "Heart Attack," "2 Reasons," "Simply Amazing" and his classics "Say Aah," "Bottoms Up," and "Can't Be Friends."

Always one to stay connected to his devoted fans, Songz launched the "Trey Fanatic Five," where fans entered various contests through social media channels including Instagram, Facebook, Social Cam, Storywheel and even an exclusive Trey Songz Mobile App, all in hopes of being 1 of 5 lucky fans to win the opportunity to interview Trey live in Atlanta on 8/26.

What's more, Trey chronicles the days leading up to the release of "CHAPTER V" with the five-part series, "Countdown To Trey Songz," found on The Warner Sound's YouTube page. Additionally, fans can relive Trey's previous four 'chapters' with exclusive mash-ups of all four previous album's hits, as well as a brand new "Chapter V" mash-up, mixed by DJ Ted Smooth.
"CHAPTER V" is the highly-anticipated fifth studio album from R&B superstar Trey Songz and the follow up to his 2010 album "PASSION, PAIN & PLEASURE," which featured the multi-platinum hit "Bottoms Up (feat. Nicki Minaj)" and the #1 single "Can't Be Friends," both of which helped the album to go on to secure RIAA Gold certification.
Songz is a Grammy-nominated, multi-faceted singer-songwriter, rapper, producer and actor who the late Ahmet Ertegun proclaimed to be "among the most promising R&B artists we have had on Atlantic since we started the company 60 years ago." Songz released his debut album "I GOTTA MAKE IT" in 2005 which featured the hit "Can't Help But Wait," and was followed by "TREY DAY" in 2007. 2009's Gold-certified album "READY," which featured such hits as the club friendly, Fabolous-assisted, "Say Aah" and the sultry "Invented Sex," proved that Trey wasn't slowing down anytime soon and solidified his place as a permanent fixture in R&B music.
In 2010, Songz founded the "Angels With Heart Foundation," which started as a call to arms to engage his fan club, Trey's Angels, and has since turned into a worldwide movement. Trey encourages members of Trey's Angels to give back and have a positive impact in their neighborhood through community service, supporting local charities and random acts of kindness.
