Tremaine Aldon Neverson was born on November 28th, 1984 in Petersberg, Virginia. Born to a teen mother and a father who soon disappeared from his life, Trey Songz was raised as a military brat under the guidance of his stepfather. Neverson was shy as a child and was initially reluctant to sing in front of others. When he did sing, it was immediately obvious to everyone around that he was extremely talented. His classmates and friends soon encouraged Neverson to take singing seriously as a career path, and his stepfather introduced him to a record producer who was a family friend. Soon after Neverson graduated, he signed a deal with Atlantic Records in 2003.
Trey Songz moved to New Jersey to begin work on his debut album in 2003.

In 2005, he released I Gotta Make It. His first album debuted at a respectable number 20 on the Billboard Top 200 and featured the hit track “Gotta Make It” featuring Twista.

Trey Songz has struggled with a number of legal issues over the course of his career. In 2016, he was arrested after allegedly assaulting a photographer following one of his concerts in Detroit. In connection to the incident, he was also charged with felony assault of a police officer. It was later revealed that Trey Songz was throwing objects around after becoming angry that the venue had cut his concert short. Eventually, the charges were reduced to two counts of disturbing the peace. In addition to 18 months of probation and other penalties, Trey Songz was ordered to take anger management classes as a result of this incident. Later, he was sued in federal court after the officer he had assaulted claimed to have received serious brain and hip injuries, necessitating a hip replacement.
Another incident occurred in 2012 when Trey Songz was sued over the catchphrase “Yuuup.” Storage Wars star Dave Hester had trademarked the phrase, giving him exclusive rights to use it in order to sell merchandise. Trey Songz disputed this, as he had been using the catchphrase since before Storage Wars aired. Ultimately, the judge ruled in favor of Hester.
