The Kingdom of R&B is looking real peaceful right about now, as the King & Prince have officially called a truce & made up.

Trey Songz recently spoke with MTV to express his admiration for R. Kelly, stating that, “I love R. Kelly. He recently said that he would love to work with me, said that he’s a fan of mine and that’s very special to me. I can’t really explain how much that means to me. He’s been an influencer and an idol for me for a long time.”

Speaking on their much publicized spat in the past, he added, “We had our differences and right now we’re in a great place. No matter how well I do, [R. Kelly] is the king forever in my eyes.”

Naming Trey as one of his current favorites in R&B, Kellz also told MTV the following:

“I feel there’s a lot of talented guys out there when it comes to R&B, and what I urge guys out there to do, that’s coming up under me, [aiming for] longevity, is to stay away from beef. Stay away from beef, stay true and respectful to music and to the ones that inspired you to do what you do. I think that’s going to be the key to having longevity and it’s also going to be the key to keeping R&B alive. You don’t want R&B singers to get into beef. Leave that to the rappers, let them do that — R&B, be classy. That’s for the ladies and having babies and having fun.”

Anytime two artists can settle their differences, that’s a great look in our eyes. Much respect to both those men.
