Trey Songz: Twitter has helped me
Trey Songz has said he believes his career is about to take off with the help of social networking sites.
The RnB crooner - who frequently uses Twitter, Facebook and MySpace - is enjoying success in the US with his latest album, Ready, and is set to go on tour with Jay-Z and Young Jeezy in February.
He said: "I feel as though I've always had great records, but somewhere on the rise to stardom it was something not interpreted to the fan - I feel as though the internet has done a lot ... helping me with that, the Twitters, Facebooks, things of that nature."
Trey's album is nominated for best contemporary RnB album at the Grammy Awards on January 31 in a category that also features Beyonce and Jamie Foxx, after he hit the No 1 spot in the US RnB charts with I Invented Sex.
"The records moreso defined me than any other album I had," he said. "I feel as though anybody can have hit records, like a hit song could be sang by anyone, but you know when you find what it is that your niche is, like a song like I Invented Sex - I don't feel like anyone else could have sang that song."
