MTV News caught up with two of the smoothest guys in the R&B game for advice on how to lay it down.
Naked movie nights, surprise candelight dinners and a heart-shaped box of ... honesty. Trey Songz and Lloyd, card-carrying members of the R&B smooth dudes club, have some interesting ideas about how to lay it down on the most romantic day of the year. So for the millions of American men who woke up on Monday morning (February 14) seeing red — roses and lacy lingerie, that is — and suffering the high-expectations performance anxiety of Valentine's Day, you're in luck!
MTV News caught up with the Love Faces tourmates just as the pre-holiday weekend kicked off and asked them for their foolproof guide to making your significant other "say aah."
While Trey sagely warned against letting the holiday "sneak up on you" ("you know, Valentine's, you gotta prepare for that, you gotta be ready"), he also said that it doesn't take a lot to score high marks. "If it's genuine, you'll go out of your way to make sure that person feels good. And if you're a genuine person, I don't think money or how much someone can buy you can make you feel that way," he told us.
Like the "I Invented Sex" singer, Lloyd goes for inventiveness over excess when making plans. He went on to detail his idea of a flawless V-Day.
"A perfect Valentine's Day? Anytime that we can wear the least amount of clothes as possible, it's a great day for me. So if we can just find somewhere and be naked," or as the New Orleans native pronounced it, nekkid, "for long periods of time: eat nekkid, cook nekkid, watch movies nekkid, obviously take a nekkid shower. Anything that doesn't require clothing I think is a great, great date," he said as we blushed.
