Watch: Trey Songz Brings Out Kevin Hart And James Harden Backstage At The Essence Music Festival


Following his steamy performance at the annual Essence Music Festival on Saturday (July 6) evening, R&B sensation Trey Songz brought a few unexpected guests with him into the press room at the New Orleans Superdome.

Alongside Songz, Let Me Explain comedian Kevin Hart and Houston Rockets’ guard James Harden answered questions for the media — provoking laughter and delight. Hart, who turned 34-years-old last night, spoke for his pal Songz, impersonating the young singer’s signature ad-libs and more. Songz has performed four years straight at Essence’s “party with a purpose.” This year, the singer belted out over 10 ballads despite nursing a sore ankle.
