Chris Brown and Trey Songz Perform With Tyga, Ty Dolla $ign, G-Unit & Fetty Wap for Between the Sheets Tour in New York
The show kicked off promptly as scheduled at 7:30 PM with special guest Tyga. Dressed in an Off White by Virgil Abloh jacket and customized Timbs, T-Raww came out the gate with his venomous track “Make It Work,” taking shots at Drake.
With a two-level stage, minimal lights and a colorful digital back drop, Tyga continued to warm up the sparse crowd, walking with security through the audience while he performed a medley of his strip club anthems “Make It Nasty” and “Rack City.” He even went into radio hits “Hookah” and his verses on Migos’ “Versace” and Kid Ink’s “Main Chick.”
By 8:15PM, it was time to slow it down for Trigga’s set. He brought the sexy along with him, wearing a form-fitting black tunic and distressed black jeans. Trey received a thunderous response with the top-charting opener “We Can’t Be Friends.”
The crowd, which had filled in by then, went wild as Mr. Steal Your Girl seamlessly belted out old and new selections from his catalog. But just when the ladies thought it was time for another serenade, Ty Dolla $ign hit the stage to assist Trey on “Dead Wrong” followed by his own “Paranoid” remix.
Sticking to the script, 9PM was the moment everyone had been waiting for when Chris Brown took the stage. As anticipated, Breezy was ready to dance. His back-up dancers in tow, the singer entertained the crowd with gyrating pelvic thrusts and grinded to “Wall to Wall,” “Run It,” “Deuces” and “Poppin,” among others.
After all of that raunchiness, Chris and Trey weren’t done quit yet. A quick wardrobe change and they were back out. This time, they both took opposite sides of the stage for a sing-off. They took turns making the crowd scream, singing segments of their slow jams from “Neighbors Know My Name” to “ No Bulls—” and “Panty Dropper.” They finally united on their joint track “Songs on 12 Play.”
All of the bedroom hymns made the crowd restless, but thankfully Trey switched gears to full turn-up mode with the help from surprise guests. He brought out Fabolous for “Say Ahh,” Ne-Yo for “She Knows” and fresh from making a shocking appearance at Kanye’s Roc City Classic concert on Thursday (Feb. 12) Fetty Wap took it up a notch with his “Trap Queen.”
With the energy on high, Chris warned that he too had something in store for his fans. With that message, he welcomed his “big brother” 50 Cent and G-Unit to the stage for a random but great addition to the New York leg of the tour. Fif and his crew rocked out to the classics “Many Men” and “What Up Gangsta.” With 30 minutes left until the show would end, Tyga returned and he and Breezy shut it down with “Ayo,” off their forthcoming Fan of a Fan album.
Of course the night couldn’t end without Breezy closing out with one of his biggest hits to date, “Loyal.” The tour, which was revised due to the crooner’s community service mandate, continues on Wednesday (Feb. 17) in Baltimore at the Royal Farms Arena.
