What's up GQ?
00:01
This is Trey Songz and these are my 10 essentials.
00:07
[upbeat music]
00:10
item number one would be these two bad boys here.
00:13
Oh man, I'll show you how to do it.
00:17
You got Black Orchid, you got Eau Du Soleil.
00:20
This one is a little more masculine,
00:21
this one has a little softer scent
00:23
so they kind of come together beautifully.
00:25
Everybody asks me what I wear and I never tell 'em
00:27
but I figured GQ want to know, I should tell y'all.
00:29
So it's Tom Ford.
00:31
This is a Santal candle, number 26, Le Labo.
00:34
These are all around my house, at home,
00:36
so when I'm on the road, you know, hotel to hotel,
00:39
tour bus, I love to have this smell
00:42
'cause it makes me feel like I'm in a familiar setting.
00:45
Smells really clean and it takes over the room.
00:47
Like in the hotel, I can just smell my room
00:49
from like the elevator.
00:50
This is also good for like alleviating other smells.
00:55
Ricola!
00:57
Was that too loud?
00:58
These are naturally soothing, I'm reading.
01:01
The organic natural herb cough drops.
01:04
I used to love Halls and this is no diss to Halls
01:05
in case y'all wanna send me some for free.
01:07
Ricola's much more natural.
01:08
It's longer lasting.
01:10
You know, you're singing a lot on the road
01:12
and you know, you're out, late night,
01:14
waking up early, doing promo, press, whatever have you.
01:16
These kind of keep your voice
01:17
in your throat in a good condition.
01:19
Shout out to Ricola for holding me down.
01:21
I need a life supply, serious.
01:25
These are my headphones.
01:26
Audio-Technica ATH-M50x's.
01:29
When I first started, I was using them in the studio
01:31
and I loved the way they sounded so much.
01:33
Kind of like a real genuine sound and it's what you hear
01:36
like in a car or places where you listen to music.
01:38
I make the records in the studio, I listen to the mixes
01:40
and masters in these as well so I always keep a pair
01:43
of these in my book bag and like
01:45
a fuller pair in the studio.
01:49
Much like the candle I showed you earlier,
01:51
Santal 26, amazing fragrance.
01:54
You take like a long trip in the bathroom
01:56
and this is not me at all, but you know.
01:59
Depending on what kind of damage you did.
02:02
Is it Ace Ventura like ooh, don't go in there.
02:06
Is it Pops from Friday bad?
02:08
This does a really good job.
02:09
Nice and fresh.
02:10
What I have here is Kiehl's ultra facial cleanser
02:14
and ultra facial moisturizer.
02:17
This is obviously to clean the face
02:18
and this is obviously to moisturize the face.
02:21
I have kind of oily skin.
02:23
If I wash my hands, I have to moisturize them immediately.
02:26
For my face, I wash my face probably three times a day so
02:28
I use this three times a day.
02:31
This is Khiel's Creme de Corps.
02:33
I don't know if I'm saying that right.
02:35
This is just lotion.
02:36
Look at the hand before Kiehl's.
02:38
Notice the hand.
02:39
Moisturized, but not well-moisturized.
02:43
Look at that.
02:44
Caramel skin shiny.
02:46
Now look at those hands.
02:49
Look at that bicep.
02:52
I should get paid for this shit.
02:54
This, my friends, is an iPhone.
02:56
I use this one mainly for listening to music.
02:59
It has a regular phone jack which means
03:02
you can charge your phone and listen to music
03:05
without having an adaptor piece which I love.
03:08
I don't use it for much else because it's an older version.
03:10
I listen to mixes, listen to music uninterrupted.
03:13
It has a gold plate.
03:14
Ballin'!
03:17
My grandmother's name is Rose, right?
03:19
I lived with her throughout high school
03:21
and it was in her yard that
03:23
I learned to trim and prune roses.
03:26
It was something I didn't wanna do.
03:28
She very much loved to have me do it.
03:31
So the older I thought, the more I appreciated the time
03:32
we would spend so I grew a love for roses,
03:38
having them in my dresser rooms, having them in my hotels
03:40
'cause once again just like the candles and the scent,
03:44
our family picture, if you will, of things like that,
03:45
it brings familiarity to where you are.
03:48
I love to have roses.
03:51
My Rolex.
03:52
When I was young, I was like 14,
03:54
I tried to get at this girl.
03:55
She's like where's your watch?
03:56
I said I don't have a watch.
03:57
She said well my father told me any young man
03:59
should have a watch so you know what time it is
04:01
and what's going on in the world.
04:02
So I don't even know who this girl was,
04:04
but it was something that stuck with me
04:06
and as I became a man and like men that I admired,
04:09
Jay-Z, Kevin Iles, Leo Korn,
04:11
Michael Kors, like they all have
04:14
a great watch collection from the simplest watch,
04:16
everyday watch to like elaborate watches like this watch.
04:18
Keep a nice watch.
04:20
This is not the idea I had.
04:22
They asked me to put it on for you guys.
04:24
GQ, I am Trey Songz and this has been fun.
04:27
I can't wait to see you guys again.
04:28
Let me know if you use any of my essentials
04:30
so I can talk to these people that I've sent money towards.
