Chapter V is the fifth studio album from R&B singer Trey Songz with the album showing why Songz is one of the main faces of R&B music. While other R&B stars such as Usher, Chris Brown and Ne-Yo have taken a turn towards electronica pop R&B music on their most recent albums, for the most part Trey Songz stays true to his R&B roots with few exceptions on this project.
With Chapter V the evolution of Trey Songz as an artist from his past albums can be seen along with the gain of new fans which Songz has seen due in part to gaining more of a “mainstream” artist. While Songz does shift towards these new fans on some tracks, for the most part Songz remains true to his R&B roots on this album. Songz shows off his versatility to different audiences throughout this album with club ready songs Hail Mary, Check Me Out and 2 Reasons all the way to ballads which he wears his heart on his sleeve on like in Heart Attack, Dive In and Simply Amazing. The majority of the album though is compromised of straight up R&B with Songz impressive vocals seeming somewhat effortless throughout the album which is extemely impressive. Although the album runs a little long at nineteen songs this is because with Chapter V the R&B singer caters to all different audiences with an album which has songs for all different types of Trey Songz fans. Trey Songz shows off his versatility and why he is one of the faces of R&B with his fifth studio album which is another very good album from the singer.
With his fifth studio album Trey Songz has released another very good R&B album which shows why he’s one of the top R&B artists in the music scene. Chapter V is another good album R&B from Trey Songz which has multiple hit songs and gets a strong 3 1/2 stars.
