Trey Songz and Nicki Minaj Celebrate Alcohol in "Bottoms Up"

Who knows where Trey Songz' lips have been
It's pretty sad when a guy has to rely on alcohol to have luck with the ladies, but here Trey Songz is singing "Bottoms Up" to potential hook-ups in the club. Never mind that alcohol-induced sex makes the line between rape and consent blurry--Songz just wants you to get your drank on!

Watch out fellas: Songz starts off the track rapping, "Come here, it's Mr. Steal Yo Girl." He's the type to prey on groups of women out with their friends, enticing them with shots so that they won't remember cheating on their boyfriends or husbands. Why this type of guy would ever be attractive to any woman is a mystery, but here Songz is with a hit single.

He celebrates the practice of binge drinking ("got a couple bottles, but a couple ain't enough") and compliments women by telling them, "Girl, you know I love the way you shaking it in them jeans." As long as the lady has a nice behind and can shake it, Songz will probably be willing to buy her a drink before trying to sleep with her. He does, after all, have a "pocket full of green," so what's not to adore?

After his vision be blurred and his speech be slurred, he tells girls all around the world to come to him. It's so funny that he admittedly has beer goggles on, but he's willing to hook up with "a million girls". The guy has no standards, and he needs alcohol to have the confidence enough to express his desire to a woman. It's very sad.

Nicki Minaj, always repping so finely for the ladies, comes in and tells Songz she wants him to buy her alcohol, and she's willing to try it all--margaritas, rum, wine, you name it--Minaj is not one to care about mixing her liquor. She says she's not interested in saying hi, but more interested in the guy's Benz, not hiding her superficiality at all. She also says "if a bitch try to get cute" she will "stomp her, throw a lot of money at her then yell 'fuck her'." Wow. This is one classy, intelligent lady. You're going to throw money at someone who makes you mad while also get into a physical altercation with her? Minaj just continues to impress.

The song is wrong on so many levels. It's a promotion for casual, drunken sex and binge drinking, marketing alcohol to its listeners without listing the dangers. It makes women sex objects and encourages fighting. And it features absolutely nothing meaningful or positive besides dancing at a club.

Then the music video features women, including Minaj, tied up for Songz' enjoyment. It's really sickening that stuff like this is supposed to be sexy, because it demeans everyone, and it's sad Songz and Minaj have to sing about getting drunk to make a buck.

I agree with you that this song isn't great. The hook is reminiscent of old spooky Halloween tunes that accompanied animated skeletons. Lyrically, Its inane make no point and promotes ignorant, dangerous behavior.

Will it make people go out and get too drunk? No. Will it make them drive drunk and take advantage of people who are intoxicated? No.

But, It is a pointless celebration of partying gone wrong.

The whole thing sounds like it's being sung from the grave to me, and could be made into a warning about the dangers of excess, but instead it's just the pop music money machine feeding on the ignorant, again.

Way to go Trey and Nikki, good job perpetuating negative stereotypes and giving dumb kids yet another song to celebrate stupidity and dangerous behaviour.

This is fucking stupid, get a life and stop trying to ruin Trey's. Only a loser who can't get women or men would write this. Guess what Trey can get me drunk and take me with him and what happens just happens . So fuck off.

Most points made were valid, but this is what sells. People today love upbeat music they can relate to. Drinking is something a lot of people enjoy and at the end of the night both parties search for that one nighter. Don't say that men, or Trey Songz, is preying at that point. Every human being in the equation is well aware of what's going on. If that's what they're into then leave them to their business. Who are we to judge.

Exactly I totally agree. If that what treys intensions are and were then to each is own. We don't know him he's a grown ass man I'm sure he knows exactly what he's gettin himself into. It doesn't make it right. Your right it's not sending a positive message, but we choose to watch and obviously this fool who wrote the blog watched it to. Smfh ! You couldn't of sayd it any clearer tho hun

this is probablly the worst review of any song i've ever read...first of all if you're going to trash a song, at least do it properly...half of the lyrics quoted in this article were wrong...and also loosen the fuck up...this is a song, not a public service message...

yes all valid points I'm sure if Tremaine behaved like that in person...but you're forgetting one important fact Lady... "Bottoms Up" is just a song/video and NOT to be taken literally
