This album is dedicated to Black Love

Trey Songz is blessing his fans with not only a new single this week called “Circles” but also an accompanying video that celebrates the beauty of Black love.

In a teaser for the video, the R&B crooner explained that the theme will explore “Black love and some of the circles we go through in relationships.” Trey and his leading lady are one of three couples of different ages that star in the video as their makeups and breakups are captured. The visuals perfectly represent the ups and downs that relationships naturally go through and the strength of Black love that keeps the unity strong.

[Intro]
Uh
Troy Taylor, you the G.O.A.T

[Verse 1]
Heard you’re here on the rebound
Bet you want me to put the D down
In the group text with the team now
Spillin’, do we feel it, do you leave out?
Why is it every time that we say we’re done
We always ending up, ending up back at square one?

[Pre-Chorus]
Fuck me once, shame on you
Fuck me twice, that won’t do
Told me that last time would be our last time
Guess you like breaking rules
Girl, I can’t act like you
Are the only one that’s confused
‘Cause I gotta do better with the choices I choose

[Chorus]
If you’re lookin’ for closure, don’t take your clothes off
No matter how hard we try, we can’t say it’s over
We goin’ in circles
Keep goin’ in circles
You know we’re just gon’ do this over and over, over and over
Over and over again
We goin’ in circles
Keep goin’ in circles
Over and over again

[Verse 2]
It’s a catch 22
‘Cause when we win, we lose
I can’t get over you
And over gettin’ overused
Overdue, overtime
Overnight, over mind
Out of sight, out of mind
Shit been gettin’ outta line
Feelin’ like we back in time, rewind

[Pre-Chorus]
Fuck me once, shame on you
Fuck me twice, that won’t do
Told me that last time would be our last time
Guess you like breaking rules
Girl, I can’t act like you
Are the only one that’s confused
‘Cause I gotta do better with the choices I choose

[Chorus]
If you’re lookin’ for closure, don’t take your clothes off
No matter how hard we try, we can’t say it’s over
We goin’ in circles
Keep goin’ in circles
You know we’re just gon’ do this over and over, over and over
Over and over again
We goin’ in circles (Keep goin’ in)
Keep goin’ in circles
Over and over again

Album Review

Of course, we can’t ever root for anything Black without a hater coming to crash the party. Soon after he dropped the Instagram teaser for his new video, a fan popped up in Trey’s comments asking, “Why is Black love different from White love? Love is love.”

The singer wasted no time getting her all the way together…with facts!

“[With Black love] families were torn apart purposely,” he explains. “Mother’s raped, men taken from homes. America has always wanted the Black family separated because of the strength we have when we are one. They go so far as to say Black fathers don’t exist and Black love doesn’t exist. So pardon me while I show Black love and not all love.”
