Trey Songz wants his new album to be the best yet

Trey Songz has said he is putting pressure on himself to make sure his new album is even better than his previous three.

The I Invented Sex singer, who recently performed on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon in the US, said he wanted to continue building on his momentum with new record Passion, Pain and Pleasure, which is released next month,

"No matter how much you love the songs, I need something new," he said, adding that R Kelly and Usher were his idols.

"This is a competition," he said. "No matter how much I look up to Usher and R Kelly, it's something we all want to be the best at. But I can't control what they do. I have to outdo me."

And Trey seems to have a fan in fellow R&B musician Keri Hilson. The star said she wasn't worried about Trey being a "one-CD hit wonder" because of his strong vocal ability paired with his physical appeal to his increasing female fan base.

"He won women's hearts," Keri said. "His music has always been great. But people are more aware of him now because of his sex appeal. That will help him move forward."
