2Pac had Danny Boy. Jay-Z had R. Kelly. Ghostface Killah had Carl Thomas. As Drake begins his ascent to one of Rap’s biggest stars of the new decade, he’s proven to have found a crooning peer in Trey Songz. The Toronto and Virginia connect struck a hit in last year’s “Successful” , before following suit on “I Invented Sex,” “Unusual,” all appearing on Songz’ albums.

Speaking with VIBE.com in an interview published yesterday, Trey Songz now says that the duo may explore full-length collaborations, with Drake already encouraging it. “He said he’s ready,” said Trey. “I think it’s all about when the people want it. I don’t think people are ready for that yet.” Elaborating, the Atlantic Records star said, “It’s all about placement. We could be much bigger stars when we do that. It’s all about the success we attain individually.”

Both stars are presently in the Top 20 of the sales charts. Yesterday, HipHopDX reported that Trey Songz’ Passion, Pain & Pleasure is at #7, clearing over 300,000 units, while Drake’s platinum Thank Me Later official debut is at #20.
