Trey Songz's 2009 album "Ready" features 17 tracks and six singles, including the lead single "I Need a Girl" and its B-side "Brand New." Critics gave "I Need a Girl" mixed reviews, and the song ultimately peaked at number 59 on the US Billboard Hot 100 and number six on the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs list.
"Ready" also includes Trey Songz's collaboration with Drake on the single "Successful." The song reached number 17 on Billboard's Hot 100. Drake released this song as a single, but Songz did not. Songz removed Lil Wayne's verse from the version on "Ready" and added another verse for himself. Songz and Drake also collaborated on "I Invented Sex," which reached number 42 on Billboard's Hot 100 and was Songz's first number one hit on the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs list.
Trey Songz released his collaboration with Fabolous, "Say Aah," as the fourth single from "Ready" on January 12, 2010. This was Songz's most successful single on the album because it crossed over onto the Pop Songs chart and the Canadian 100. The single reached number nine on Billboard's Hot 100.
"Neighbors Know My Name" was the final single released from "Ready" on February 16, 2010. Critics positively reviewed the song, but it only reached number 40 on Billboard's Hot 100.
