Songbook Entertainment/Atlantic recording artist Trey Songz has unveiled details of his upcoming “Chapter V World Tour Presented by ooVoo,” appropriately titled after his fifth studio album, “CHAPTER V,” which was released on August 21st and debuted at #1 on Billboard’s “Top 200 Albums” chart, as well as the “Top R&B Albums” and “Top Digital Albums” charts, and a Top 10 debut on the U.K. Albums chart. The 25 date U.S. tour - which features RCA recording artists Miguel & The Kaleidoscope Dreams Experience and introducing Elle Varner - will see the R&B superstar taking the sounds of “CHAPTER V” worldwide.
“As I enter this next chapter of my life, what better way than to celebrate with the very people who have made me who I am today; MY FANS and my Angels. They are continuously there for me and as we embark on the Chapter V World Tour, I plan on giving them the experience of a lifetime. I can't think of anyone else I would rather share my stage with, than two artists who are at the forefront of our genre, Miguel and Elle Varner. We're moving R&B forward and I look forward to touching so many cities and countries over the coming months. I would also like to thank Larry and my good friends at ooVoo for presenting the Chapter V World Tour. Today, social media plays such an important role in our lives and I appreciate ooVoo's commitment to keeping me connected with my Angels and fans all around the world, by connecting us anywhere and at any time through video chat rooms, video messaging, and screen sharing. I’m looking forward to celebrating with you all,” Songz says of the upcoming “Chapter V World Tour Presented By ooVoo.”
Miguel, who joins the “Chapter V World Tour” along with “The Kaleidoscope Dreams Experience,” says of hitting the road with Trey, “The juxtaposition of sounds and styles between the three of us gives this bill a great dynamic. It's an amazing opportunity to educate our audiences about the different sides of R&B, which is my favorite part.”
"I'm thankful that Trey has given me this opportunity and I am so excited to be on a tour with two of the dopest artists in R&B. As the only lady on the tour, I'll be sure to keep the boys in line!" says R&B songstress Elle Varner on being part of the “Chapter V World Tour.” What’s more, Songz’ “Chapter V World Tour” is presented by social video-chat and instant messaging company, ooVoo, which can be featured in Songz’ video for his hit “Simply Amazing.” You can watch the video for “Simply Amazing,” here.
"Trey Songz is a genuine and beautiful presence with a voice to match.

"We cannot imagine an artist more closely aligned with the high-quality and social commitment that ooVoo has to our customers using ooVoo to video chat on mobile, PC and via Facebook."

“CHAPTER V” is the highly-anticipated fifth studio album from R&B superstar Trey Songz and the follow up to his 2010 album “PASSION, PAIN & PLEASURE,” which featured the multi-platinum hit “Bottoms Up (feat. Nicki Minaj)” and the #1 single “Can’t Be Friends,” both of which helped the album to go on to secure RIAA Gold certification. “CHAPTER V” features the Gold-certified first single, “Heart Attack,” the T.I.-assisted party anthem “2 Reasons,” “Hail Mary (feat. Young Jeezy & Lil Wayne)” and the international smash single, “Simply Amazing,” with guest appearances by Diddy, Meek Mill and Rick Ross. “CHAPTER V” has proven to be an international success as well with the first single “Heart Attack,” and the international hit single, “Simply Amazing,” both becoming top 10 singles in the U.K.
Songz is a Grammy-nominated, multi-faceted singer-songwriter, rapper, producer and actor who the late Ahmet Ertegun proclaimed to be “among the most promising R&B artists we have had on Atlantic since we started the company 60 years ago.” Songz released his debut album “I GOTTA MAKE IT” in 2005 which featured the hit “Can’t Help But Wait” and was followed by “TREY DAY” in 2007. 2009’s Gold-certified album “READY,” which featured such hits as the club friendly, Fabolous-assisted, “Say Aah” and the sultry “Invented Sex,” proved that Trey wasn’t slowing down anytime soon and solidified his place as a permanent fixture in R&B music.
In 2010, Songz founded the “Angels With Heart Foundation,” which started as a call to arms to engage his fan club, Trey’s Angels, and has since turned into a worldwide movement. Trey encourages members of Trey’s Angels to give back and have a positive impact in their neighborhood through community service, supporting local charities and random acts of kindness.
