R&B's brightest young stars, J. Holiday and Trey Songz, will team up to co-headline a tour beginning this spring.

The two singer-songwriters hit 20 cities as they make their way across the country, beginning in Chicago on February 25 and running through late March, before wrapping up their tour in San Francisco on March 23.

Both Holiday and Trey Songz are enjoying success with chart-topping singles. Holiday's single "Suffocate" maintains the no. 4 position on the Billboard R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart, while Songz' "Can't Help But Wait" comes in at no. 5.

The re-release of Holiday's album, Back Of My Lac', on February 5, in a deluxe edition with new songs and videos added, triggered a sales spike this week of over 40% and a major chart rebound on the Billboard Top 200 albums chart in its 18th charting week. So far, it has been certified gold by the RIAA.

Trey Songz' "Can't Help But Wait" featuring Plies, is included on the original motion picture soundtrack of "Step Up 2 The Streets" in a brand-new remix. A new video, directed by Syndrome, accompanies the remix. His latest album, Trey Day, debuted on the Billboard Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart at no. 2.
