Before releasing his third album, Songz released a mixtape titled Anticipation in June 2009 through his blog, which featured songs from his third album.
He had a mixtape from Trey that was released in the summer of 2009, called Genesis. Genesis was a collection of Trey Songz’s first recordings when he was fifteen years old and was released to show his fans the dedication that he had to make a record when he was young.

The second official single from his third album, “LOL Smiley Face”, featuring Soulja Boy Tell ‘Em and Gucci Mane, was released in August 2009 and reached #51 on the Hot 100 and #12 on the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart.
The third single from the album, “I Invented Sex”, featuring Drake, was released in October 2009 and reached #42 on the Hot 100 but #1 on the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart, becoming his first single to top that chart. Like the first two singles from the album, it achieved success in the R&B/urban community but only some mainstream success. Charted within the Billboard Hot 100, and topped the R&B chart.
The fourth single from the album, “Say Aah”, featuring rapper Fabolous, was released in January 2010 and reached #9 on the Hot 100 and #3 on the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart. The single has become Trey’s highest-charting single on the Hot 100 and one of his most successful singles on the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart.
He also collaborated with R&B singer Amerie on her song “Pretty Brown”, the third single from her fourth album, In Love & War. The fifth and final single from the album, “Neighbors Know My Name”, was released in February 2010 and reached #43 on the Hot 100 and #4 on the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart. A sixth single, “Yo Side of the Bed”, was going to be released in June 2010, but its release was canceled due to unknown reasons.
