Who can forget when Trey Songz and Ne-Yo clashed momentarily? Ne-Yo went up to The Breakafast Club back in 2012 when he provided some constructive criticism to his peer by asking him to use more emotion when recording his records. Trey, vexed by his comments and the persistent questions surrounding their feud – offered little answers during his interview with Power 105. Later, Ne-Yo apologized for his comments and the two collaborated on “She Knows (Remix).”

Back when August was on the cusp of blowing up into one of R&B’s darlings, he and Trey butted heads. The youngster spewed venom towards Trey’s way during an interview with Rap-Up. “I don’t really f— with Trey right now. We don’t get along right now. He did some other s— and we just don’t rock,” he said. The animosity quickly faded, when the two linked up at the BET Awards and performed together with Chris Brown.

Trey Songz has always been an avid fan of R.Kelly. His fandom caused him to lash out again his idol, because he was tired of watching Kelly singing in Auto-tune instead of being the genius he was. In 2010, during his interview with Vibe, Songz said: “People say, ’Well, I hear a lot of R. Kelly in your music.’ So what?” Two albums straight. … You can say what you want about me.” Years later, things have calmed down and the two are on better terms.
