Twelve-year-old TrÃ© aka LilÂ TrÃ©, SelÂsum Records child prodigy, recently celebrated his birthday, but one of his biggest presents was learning that his debut single, ÂThat Girl,Â is one of the biggest sleepers in the South.
According to Billboard Magazine, TrÃ© is the Âfastest growing new artistÂ on the Billboard charts, moving from #4 to the #3 position on the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Single Sales and from #13 to the #10 position on the Hot 100 Single Sales in the July 30, 2005 issue of the magazine, after debuting on the charts less than six weeks ago.
In recent weeks Tre, who was born in Houston but now resides in Atlanta with his parents, has found himself opening various shows for teen act B5, Mario, Marcus Houston and others; headlining at New YorkÂs Apollo Theater; meeting his idol Bow Wow and selling out records at the FYE record store chain.
TrÃ©Âs father, Joe aka Simply (former lead singer for Atlantic Record act ÂGroove YouÂ) is a songwriter/producer and his mother Tangela (who was an on the air personality at radio station KTOY-FM, Texarkana, TX for six years), heads the label for which he records.
TrÃ© is currently on a mini-promotional tour throughout various regions all over the U.S., performing live and visiting countless record stores and radio stations. Demand for this singer, whose debut album ÂMusic In MeÂ will be released in September, remains heavy and with the onslaught of fan frenzy at each of his in-store appearances, extra security has been needed for the pint-sized entertainer.
