    Trey Songz and Chris Brown

    Trey Songz’s collaboration with hip-hop artist Twista propelled him into the spotlight with their smash hit ‘Girl Tonite,’ which reached number three on the hip hop/R&B charts.’ This song along, with Trey’s second released single ‘Gotta Go,’ solidified Trey’s status as a talented R&B singer.

    Trey’s present hit song chronicles the plight of a woman who’s in a verbally abusive relationship. Trey Songz patiently watches from the sidelines as a woman, the object of his affection, undergoes abuse at the hands of her mate. He struggles with her decision to stay with him despite all of her wonderful qualities.

    The song, entitled ‘I Can’t Help But Wait,’ Trey longingly waits for the day that his crush will come to her senses, leave her abusive boyfriend, and realize that life would be so much better with him.

    Last week the single was number 30 on the Billboard Hot 100 charts, and has currently climbed to number 25. As the song gains in popularity, it will no doubt continue to make waves on the charts.

    Another R&B artist that has had many recent successes in music is Chris Bown, tearing up the charts at number three with the newly released single ‘Kiss Kiss’ featuring T. Pain, a singer who has been featured in numerous songs over the past year.

    Brown began his professional singing career at age 16 with the upbeat dance song ‘Run It.” After his debut he continued to turn out hit after hit and has gained a large following of devoted fans. He has recently come under the eye of the media amidst allegations that he’s been involved in a sexual relationship with his longtime manager, Tina Davis, since the age of sixteen.

    Brown’s camp strongly denies these claims and maintains that the relationship between Chris and his manager has been strictly professional. Despite this recent negative attention, Chris Brown continues to entertain fans with his innovative dance moves, high-pitched voice and his charismatic nature.
