J. MEETS TREY IN HOLIDAY/SONGZ-FEST: J. HOLIDAY AND TREY SONGZ PLAN NATIONAL SPRING TOUR J. HOLIDAY REPEATS CHART-BUSTING SUCCESS OF ‘BED’ WITH ‘SUFFOCATE’
NEW YORK – If America is looking for good songs, sung the right way, may we suggest that the place to find them is not on a televised talent show… but in the much-anticipated Spring 2008 tour co-headlining two of the new R&B’s brightest young lights: Music Line/Capitol Music Group’s gold-certified J. HOLIDAY, and Song Book/Atlantic’s TREY SONGZ.
Through these exceptional singer-songwriters, the mid-Atlantic will represent in twenty-one cities across the country, as Washington, DC’s Holiday and Virginia-based Songz play their dates through late March.
J. Holiday and Trey Songz currently share commanding chart positions in the Billboard R&B/Hip-Hop Songs Top 5, with Holiday’s second smash single “Suffocate” maintaining a bulleted No. 4, and Trey Songz’ “Can’t Help But Wait” at No. 5. Both songs reached No. 2 on the chart previously. “Suffocate” has also reached the Top 25 on the Billboard Hot 100 national chart.
Sustained strong airplay and re-release of Holiday’s first Music Line/Capitol album BACK OF MY LAC’ on February 5, in a deluxe edition with new songs and videos added, triggered a sales spike this week of over 40% and a major chart rebound on the Billboard Top 200 albums chart in its 18th charting week. BACK OF MY LAC’ debuted at No. 1 on Billboard’s Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart, and is certified gold by the RIAA for sales of more than 500,000 copies. Holiday’s first charted single, “Bed,” was a four-week No. 1 R&B/Hip-Hop single, and was described by The New York Times as “arguably 2007’s signature slow jam.”
Trey Songz’ hit single “Can’t Help But Wait” featuring Plies, is included on the original motion picture soundtrack of Touchstone Pictures’ STEP UP 2 THE STREETS in a brand-new remix. A new video, directed by Syndrome, accompanies the remix. The soundtrack was released February 5. His album “TREY DAY” debuted on the Billboard Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart at No. 2 .
