The first single by R&B singer Trey Songz' fifth studio album, Chapter 5, finds him crooning lyrics about a relationship, which both partners find they're unable to break away from. "We're so in too deep, can't think about giving it up, but I never knew love would feel like a heart attack," he cries. The singer adds six angry f-bombs to emphasize this love is the worst pain he's ever had. The song was produced by Benny Blanco and Rico Love and released on March 26, 2012.
Songz told Artist Direct
the song explores that rocky place in which so many relationships end up, "It's that place you are in when you are in a relationship and you are walking on rocks trying to figure it out, at the breaking point or decide to be together forever," he explained. "Anyone in a real relationship knows that it hurts to stay together, but you don't want to leave."
Bass Player Scott Edwards
Scott was Stevie Wonder's bass player before becoming a top session player. Hits he played on include "I Will Survive," "Being With You" and "Sara Smile."
Dexys (Kevin Rowland and Jim Paterson)
"Come On Eileen" was a colossal '80s hit, but the band - far more appreciated in their native UK than stateside - released just three albums before their split. Now, Dexys is back.
