Slow Motion

Album: Trigga (2015)
Charted: 26

Songfacts®:

  • Over producer Charlie Puth's laid-back guitar arrangement, Trey Songz lets his girl that he wants her to take things real slow with her:

    I just wanna get you out them clothes.
    I just wanna see you dance in Slow Motion


    The baby-making tune was released as a single from the re-release of Trigga.
  • The steamy video, directed by Dre Films, co-stars model Tanaya Henry, as Songz's lead lady. We see him take his girl back to his penthouse, pour her a drink of SX ChaChaCha Tequila, and make love to her.
  • Charlie Puth told Billboard magazine he was thinking back his school dances when he wrote the song. "You know they always have the slow jam at the end," Puth said. "They don't really have that at the club. 2 a.m. in Los Angeles, they just turn the lights on and everybody leaves. When I was making the song, I was trying to make the 'slow dance' record of the club."
  • The song is about taking your time with a woman in the bedroom. Songz explained to Billboard magazine: "When you're being intimate, you got to read body language. You have to know when a woman is telling you to give her more or less, pay attention to the details."
