Song You Need To Know: Trey Songz Featuring Nicki Minaj, ‘Bottoms Up’

Trey Songz, sex inventor. Nicki Minaj, Harajuku Barbie. A duet between the two. It’s getting hot in herre (aaaaaand shout out to my 2002 Nelly reference).

The aforementioned inventor of coitus, perhaps feeling the burden of such a title, has adopted a new moniker for himself: “Mr. Steal Your Girl.” And when Trey Songz isn’t booty-snatching/robbing people of their significant others, he’s making lithe, cocky R&B, like this track, “Bottoms Up,” taken from his forthcoming album, Passion, Pain & Pleasure.

Much like Trey’s earlier ditty, “Say Aah,” this one is about the joys of enjoying a frosty beverage at the nightclub of your choosing. It’s got a real R. Kelly vibe to it, which will probably annoy Trey to read (assuming he’s reading … what up, Trey!) since Songz has had a checkered past with The Closet Man.

Nicki Minaj has an unquenchable thirst on this track, ticking off a bar’s worth of cocktails in her inimitable baby-talk flow.

It’s happy hour, folks. Check out “Bottoms Up” as well as Trey’s “Say Aah” video, all below. And watch Trey Songz’s “MTV Unplugged” performances here.
