Trey Songz, John Legend & The Roots Make Moves on Albums Chart

Trey Songz and John Legend

Trey Songz takes a hit this week on the Billboard 200, while John Legend and The Roots Wake Up! the albums chart with their soulful collaboration.

After debuting at No. 2 last week, the “Bottoms Up” singer’s fourth album Passion, Pain & Pleasure slips to No. 7 with a 73 percent drop in sales. It moved another 65,722 copies in its second week bringing his overall sales to around 306,000.

Behind Trey lands John Legend and The Roots, whose politically-minded joint album Wake Up! comes in at No. 8 with 62,765. This marks the fifth consecutive album that Legend has landed in the top 10 and the sixth for The Roots, following the Philly band’s How I Got Over, which bowed at No. 6 in June.

Eminem holds it down at No. 6 with 65,846 sold of his platinum-certified Recovery, marking his 14th consecutive week in the top 10. Zac Brown Band tops this week’s chart with 153,402 units of their latest You Get What You Give, while Maroon 5 comes in second with Hands All Over, selling 141,585 copies.

Elsewhere, Barbados siren Shontelle enters outside the top 50 with her sophomore effort No Gravity, which contains the top 10 single “Impossible.”

    Trey Songz talking like he made he hasn’t when he sells of 500,00 copies in the first week thats when he’ll get real respect intill then he is just a rookie. Look at Eminem, you can almost gurantee he’ll sell over 700,000 copies in its first week give respect where respect is due thats how it is.

    Trey will reach plat, or at least close to platnium in year. just like Ready. Passion was kind of average though so he’s not getting my money

    DEADDD @ Shontelle’s 7000!!

    I like the girl, but they were dumb for pushing back the album. Impossible was on the rise, and they decided to release the album when the song fell off the charts and the next single didn’t blow up(yet, if it does).

    Eminem got as much fans as the population of some of these damn states!
