Chapter V

Trey Songz's fifth album is his first to top the charts, and it makes sense: Chapter V is full of big ballads and bigger club beats that take dead aim at the pop mainstream. But Songz is at his best playing to his R&B base on songs like "Panty Wetter," when the Spanish-fly vapors fog up the ceiling mirror and he wraps his supple falsetto around lyrics like "Your panty-dropper has returned, and I'm goin' low."

    “Stillness Is the Move”

    Dirty Projectors | 2009

    A Wim Wenders film and a rapper inspired the Dirty Projectors duo David Longstreth and Amber Coffmanto write "sort of a love song." "We rented the movie Wings of Desire from Dave's brother's recommendation, and he had me go through it and just write down some things that I found interesting, and they made it into the song," Coffman said. As for the hip-hop connection, Longstreth explained, "The beat is based on T-Pain. We commissioned a radio mix of the song by the guy who mixes all of Timbaland's records, but the mix we made sounded way better, so we didn't use it."
