50 Cent Replaces Joe With Trey Songz on Power Theme Song and People Are Pissed
50 Cent's Power series returns to TV on Sunday (Aug. 25), but many have already caught episode one via (clears throat) alternate means. While fans are excited for what may possibly be the last season of the original series, people who already tuned in had mixed feelings about a change for this season: the show's theme song.
For seasons one through five, the show's "Big Rich Town" theme has been performed by R&B singer Joe. For season six, he has been replaced by Trey Songz and the track has been altered slightly. People sounded off on their displeasure on social media.
"Who told @50cent to take Joe off the intro & add #TreySongz? He changed the lyrics too!" one fan pondered about 50, who performed in Saudi Arabia earlier this summer.
"Man I love Trey Songz but I need the Original Joe version of Big Rich Town, I’m upset already," another person added.
"I knew that was trey songz singing the power theme song. They need to bring my boy joe back next episode lol," another Twitter user chimed in.
It's clear that many fans are used to the OG version. Not everyone was upset, however.
"They got @TreySongz on the intro of Power. Nice 👌🏾,' someone else noted.

After confirming Power would be ending after this season back in May, Fif has since teased more to come from the popular Starz Network series.
