August Alsina and Trey Songz Sing ‘Kissin’ on My Tattoos,’ ‘I Luv This S—‘ + ‘Na Na’ at 2014 BET Awards
August, who earlier in the night won the award for Best New Artist, started off the performance with his slow jam ‘Kissin’ on My Tattoos.’ Dressed in a white suit (with spots of red flannel, since that seems to be the popular choice for the guys this evening), he crooned his single with an open jacket and no undershirt, appropriately showing off his own tattooed chest. The only thing more impressive than his smooth vocals was the acrobat who flipped and spun around on two red aerial silks behind him.
When he transitioned into his popular track ‘I Luv This S—,’ Trey Songz and Chris Brown joined him on stage to lend their vocals. Talk about a power trio! The three big stars sounded great together, their voices weaving in and out of each other as they took turns with the lines. And the threesome cleaned up the explicit song for live TV, of course.
Afterwards, August and Chris departed to let Trey give a solo performance of his hit ‘Na Na.’ He, too, featured incredible acrobatics, backed by dancers doing splits, flips and dips on ladders. If the 2014 BET Awards offered an award for performance visuals, these guys would take it home!
