Joe and Trey Songz, Trying to Keep up

I wrote about two new albums by somewhat older R&B singers, Trey Songz and Joe. Right now, there is no dominant male R&B singer, so all the boys are looking for any edge they can find in a competitive market, meaning that injecting increasing levels of sexuality into their music plays an increasingly important role. This can put the older guard in a tight spot. Below, one of Joe’s hits from 1997, “Don’t Wanna Be A Player.”
