Favorites Friday – Trey Songz, “Last Time”

Trey-Day“Last Time” has got to be one of my favorite songs by Trey Songz, and ranks up in my favorite all-time RnB songs. Though, it may not be the best song to post on Valentine’s Day.

“Last Time” is incredibly passionate and features a smooth rhythm that feels harmonized all the right ways and is paced quite well. Songz always struck up comparisons to R. Kelly when he first launched his career in music, and while that may no longer apply, Trey Day is a prime example of their similarities.

The biggest reason I love this song oh so much is because of how strikingly soulful it is, lyrically and rhythmically. The vocals are not perfect, but they contain the amount of passion, lust and desire needed to make the song feel meaningful (a subject that Trey Songz is probably experienced at dealing with). The song would end up placing in the Billboard Hot 100 briefly, but never got the attention I feel it quite deserved.

Overall, I would rate this song at:

9.25/10

“Last Time” might be a cheater’s anthem, but at least those bastards have a great taste in music. You may notice the chorus returns quicker than hoped for, but it has such a flow to it that its repetition really is not a bother.
