Vocally, he's never sounded stronger. That's not say he's great singer in the first place, but at least on THIS album, Trey understands where his range begins and ends, and is singing accordingly. There's nothing worse than when an artist oversteps their vocal boundaries and isn't checked by someone in the recording studio! Well placed harmonies throughout Trigga are also a plus, especially on the album opener, "Cake", "Smartphones", "Change Your Mind", and the Target bonus track, "Hard To Walk Away".
As far as the lyrics are concerned, gone is the day that Trey thought "Sex Ain't Better Than Love". The majority of the album is about having sex with other people's......people ("Disrespectful", "Dead Wrong"), while the rest is a how-to on justifying said cheating ("Smartphones", "Yes, No, Maybe", and bonus track "I Know (Can't Get Back)"). Morality aside, as usual for a Trey Songz album, the lyrics are catchy nonetheless and won't stop most from enjoying this guilty pleasure of an album.
With exception of "NaNa", "Touchin, Lovin", "Change Your Mind" and the deluxe edition bonus track, "Love Around The World", Trigga can be played from start to finish during many a love session. After all, Trey DID say on one of his past hits that the ladies call him Trigga cuz he "makes their bodies bust..." If his slow and seductive, albeit mildly predictable, beats don't give one 17-20 (depending on which deluxe edition is bought) reasons to get laid, someone wasn't doing their job.
Play on repeat: "Cake", "NaNa", "Disrespectful", "Dead Wrong", "Hard To Walk Away"*
Skip & save yourself some time: "Foreign" and its remix with Justin Bieber are almost interchangeable, so if you don't care about a new verse from Biebs, it doesn't matter which one you listen to.
Real Talk moment(s): "Y.A.S.", "What's Best For You"*, "I Know (Can't Get Back)"*
