12-year-old Tré tops charts again, with 2nd single, while 1st single holds Billboard's Top 40 for 17 weeks straight.

Sel’Sum Records artist, Tré a/k/a Lil’ Tré, is still hitting em’ hard on the Billboard charts, in the record stores and on stage as he continues to make big strides on all three fronts. His second single release, “Baby Girl,” from the forthcoming CD “Music in Me”, is proving to be the right follow up to his first single release “That Girl”.

According to the October 29, 2005 issue of Billboard Magazine, “Baby Girl”, Tré’s second single debuts on the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Single Sales charts in the #47 position, while “That Girl”, still remains on the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Single Sales charts at #34 and on the Top 100 Single Sales at #22 after 17 weeks.

Tré, who has opened shows for teen acts B5, Mario, Marcus Houston and headlined at New York’s Apollo Theater at the onset of summer 2005, also met and took photos with Bow Wow (who he has strongly admired for years) as he continues to tour throughout various cities all over the U.S. Having performed on the Coca Cola sponsored “Summer Jam” earlier this year and most recently completing performances on the Health Jam Edutainment tour (which consisted of high schools throughout the five boroughs of New York) among other live performances, to more than enthusiastic and welcoming audiences. In addition, he continues to make in-store appearances at countless record stores and radio stations throughout the country.

Naturally gifted, this pre-teen sensation has a show business background, as his father “Simply” is a songwriter/producer; while his mother Tangela heads the label for which he records. Since first appearing on the national music scene (only a few short months ago), Tré has been featured on many entertainment websites and in various international newspapers and magazines including on-going issues of Word UP Magazine. He continues selling out records at the FYE and other record store chains with both single releases. In an interview Tré was asked, “How do you feel about the success you’re having? Tré responds, “Ah! Well, I am getting to do the things I never did before, I get to live out my dreams. Also I get to meet a whole bunch of good people; this is really a great experience for me!”
