Trey Songz has been way busy, guys. In between collaborating with J. Cole on “Can’t Get Enough,” he’s also found time to record “The Way You Move” with Ne-Yo and T-Pain AND “Out Of My Head” with Lupe Fiasco. And did we mention he’s recording two brand-new mixtapes, “#Lemmeholdatbeat2″ and “Anticipation II,” out Nov. 1? Uhh, overachiever much?

Slated to appear on one of his forthcoming mixtapes, “Top Of The World” is panty-dropping music at its finest. In addition to Trey’s sultry vocals, the track is of a classic slow jam variety, boasting smooth synths and some retro ’80s-sounding drum patterns. Unlike other more blatantly sexual panty-dropping anthems (read: Sisqó‘s “Thong Song“) Trey’s is a subtle seduction. In fact, while Trey does sing about sex (“Staring at your body/Damn, your sexy body/I’m Trey, I came to play/I wanna use you as my hobby”), the overarching message in “Top Of The World” actually has nothing to do with a hookup in da club. Rather, Trey uses this song to send a message to his friends back home: “If I could/I would bring the whole hood to the top of the world with me/Here’s my world for free/Tryna give you what you came to see.” Aww, that’s so sweet, Trey! Sharing is caring!
