"SUCCESSFUL" VIDEO SHOOT









What is your vision of success? Growing up we all have visions of what we want our lives to be like in the future but sometimes we lose that vision. Many times we find ourselves being drawn away from our own vision and sucked into what society categorizes as success losing our inner child that just wanted to be that teacher or firefighter. Although its definitely not bad to aspire to live lavishly, make sure that whatever your vision is that its just that, yours.

Everyone has a hustle in this life. Whether you're a corporate CEO or a dancer at Magic City, whether you live in the projects or somewhere in the hills, we all have bills to pay, families to feed and goals to achieve. No matter the scale, line up your vision and knock it down cuz at the end of the day, in some way shape or form, we're all blessed. So the next time you get discouraged or things aren't going exactly as you planned, shake it off, regroup and remember that is all in the pursuit of SUCCESS!!!

Download the album version (below) with TREY SONGZ verse and view more pics from the video shoot.

"I Just wanna be, I just wanna be SUC-CESS-FUL..."

My vision of success is being comfortable in your own skin. I want to be able to provide for my family as the second head of the house. Going to school to pursue my lifelong career as an RN is something I have dreamed of doing since I could remember. This to me is what success looks like. Being able to help other and care for them as my own is like a breath of fresh air. I am getting a lot of practice now working as a Certified Nursing Assistant. You are very talented and humble I truly thank you for that and the video is going to be supa hot I already love the song! Yuuup! ~Mrs. Cunshinecity_FL

Charon said...

I liked the message the most. Brought tears to my eyes. More so because I have been struggling with the issue of success in my own life. Success to me is fulfilling your dream(s). I feel as though I need to give my dreams up and the thought hurts. So I had came for the pics but was touched by the message.

Thank you

Natasha said...

WOW!!! God is using your life Trey! Continue to be encouraged! You are such a blessing. Recently I moved into a larger apartment. Sitting down and reflecting, I had to give honor and glory to the most high God. My instincts wanted to focus on what else I could have or what I lack. But instead I chose to focus on what it is I have now. I am truely blessed. I get to share this moment with my twin sis who has flown in to see me today:) As a teacher I make a humble salary. But today I consider myself sucessful because I finally understand the truth of this life time. Success is nothing without family and friends there to support you, loving you and most importantly, you loving and supporting yourself! I thank God for you today Trey because you helped me remember the true meaning of success:) May God continue to bless you!!!!

@FreshestBaby9 said...

I give so many props to you for taking the time out of your day to sit and think of this. Everything you said is completley true and it's a blessing in my heart to hear someone say those things. You truly are the light at the end of my tunnel. God bless you always. =)

Anastasia said...

i can't wait to see the vid it looks so classy lol im drakes no.1 fan but i gotta admit i haven't always been a fan of yours but the way you genuinely care about your fans and actually take the time out to talk to as many as you can is what helped win me over because like so many other artists only care about their fans because they are the ones buying their music and stuff but you are like the only celeb to reply to so many tweets from fans that aren't famous at all so keep doing u.

human said...

I just need to know how to solicit you, Mr. Songz.

MrsPebbles234 said...

I pray that you stay blessed and safe in your pursuit of "success"! I believe that if you stay grounded and learn as you go, as it seems you are doing, then God will continue to bless you.

TTU fam supports you 100%

that was deep trey and it was also very true. those were the words i needed to hear today dealing wit what i am dealing wit. I just wanna be sucessful i almost took a job doing something that i didnt want to do just because it could open doors to something else when all i ever really wanted to do was wat i am doing now. I am stable, able, and not turning tables....hell i am sucessful!

Aliana said...

the honesty and depth you put out there about love, sex, life... it's really inspiring! much respect.

Hope said...

My definition of success is doing what you have to do for your survival and the survival of your family... at the end of the day, if you're providing for you and yours, then you are a success! That's just my personal opinion... but your post was very inspirational after my morning from hell, and just what I needed to read... and you are looking good as usual :)

CanaryBird said...

My vision of success changes every now and again, but three things stay the same. First, I need to be happy. I've wasted much of my young life being miserable and unhappy. I can't have that in the future.

Second, I need the people I love, the people who've always been there for me, my family and dear friends to be safe, healthy and happy. I will do everything in my power to make sure everyone is just that.

Lastly, I need to know that my life has fulfilled some purpose. I need to know that my life has had some benevolent affect on someone else's. I don't know what my calling is just yet, but when I find out what it is. I will devote myself whole-heartedly to it.

YUUUP.... CANT WAIT FOR THE VIDEO TO HIT TV BOO

I heart all things precious. said...

i don't think u need "hoes" to be successful.. but i loved anticipation.. its actually the most played on my itunes account that i've had since 04... crazy huh.. "scratchin me up" is just like my favorite song of all time rite now... it beat out "seduction" by Usher.. i will definitely cop your album and i want to see you VERY successful with the R&B greats like Luther, Robert Kelly, Mary, and MC... You got it in you.. while your doing that i'll be on my educational grind... we all have our different paths... make the best of yours.

Neaney said...

Keep em comin!! :) You're underrated BUT u r on your way! Congrats!

I appreciate you as an artist and person. I've been following you since "I Gotta Make It" when people were just hearing your name and underestimating you. Lol, my cousin and I used to fight about it often because he would call you wack and I would tell him he just couldn't understand but that you would make it and if he thought he could do better then he should put up or shut up. Let's just say you've never heard of him but he was bumping your music in his stereos all summer saying how hot you are now. Smh, I couldn't do anything but laugh.

I bought both your cd's twice (one for me and one for after a friend was "enlightened" and asked to "borrow" it). All have been played to the point of no return and are too scratched to play straight through anymore but I know them by heart so scratched or not, I keep singing lol.

I'm a BIG fan and try to stay in the loop as much as possible so I can support. I'm subscribed to TreySongzREADY, TreySongzVideos, SongzRoadie, and JD1472 on youtube, I have an account on Treysongz.com, I'm following you on Twitter and I'm about to join this. At the moment life isn't as I would like it to be so I have no cable but I request your videos on 106&Park anyway just to support. I've always wanted to contact you but Twitter only gives you 140 characters and obviously I have a lot to say.

I spent the last two days or so, stressed because I'm not where I want to be in life right now. I'm not an emotional person and I don't cry easily at all but reading your blog actually brought tears to my eyes because you are so right. I can't let anyone else knock me off my path or tell me I'm not good enough. I have to do me. I have to succeed for myself and not for anyone else. I can't remember a time when music, poetry, logic, and giving back weren't a part of me. I know I don’t want to be an entertainer because I'm more of a behind the scenes type person. I've always wanted to do Law so I decided on Corporate and Entertainment Law. From there, I plan to start my own label from the business side of things. This way I can work with the music that I love and help other people’s dreams become a reality. I also plan to start my own charity for underprivileged and/or mentally challenged children.

I'd like to thank you for never losing Tremaine Aldon Neverson and for remembering where you come from because so many lose themselves on the path to success. YOU TRULLY ARE SUCCESSFUL. I hope to meet you one day. I appreciate your taking the time to read this, I know its long LOL. Sorry

My father escaped from Russian when he was 7 years old, after suffering under the Cossack raids, persecution and genocide. He was a self made man, a true success. He said to me one day, regarding business, "Never confuse being BIG with being successful. Success is being able to provide for yourself and your family, be with them, and for them, and be of service to others. The best way to achieve success, he told me, was to lay the foundation for the success of others. The route to failure is to undermine the success of others."

Simone James said...

Trey, I really appreciate your music and who you are as person. Right now, I am in school studying to become a journalist. When I am done, or even in my third year, I hope I get that exclusive interview..YUUUP!!
