Trey Songz Scores First No. 1 on Billboard 200

Trey Songz

Move over 2 Chainz. There’s a new king of the charts. Trey Songz earns his first-ever No. 1 on the Billboard 200 this week with Chapter V.

The R&B heartthrob’s fifth album sold 135,000 copies in its first week, according to Nielsen SoundScan. While it marks his best chart position to date, it wasn’t enough to top the sales of his previous album Passion, Pain & Pleasure, which moved 240,000 units in September 2010.

A grateful Trey thanked his fans in a letter. “I just want to say thank you for another opportunity to give each of you a part of me,” he wrote. “I promise to love, I commit to make a difference, and I will never take you for granted.”

Last week’s chart-topper 2 Chainz falls to No. 2 this week after selling 48,000 copies, bringing his two-week total to 195,000.

Elsewhere on the chart, DJ Khaled debuts at No. 4 (41,000) with his star-studded set Kiss the Ring featuring the singles “Take It to the Head” and “I Wish You Would.” His 2011 Cash Money debut We the Best Forever sold 53,000 copies.

    @white hos love BBC, Well either way he did the same amount as Chris Brown & Usher and he’s not even as big as them and barely anyone knew he had an album out so he comes out a big winner and is definately one of the biggest r&b artists out right now. Also note that Treh didn’t have to put techno songs on his album like Chris Brown & Usher did. I like both of those artists too but this right here is the truth.

    @Tbozfan10, Well he may have sold the same as CB and Usher but a lot of PROMO, Chris barely had any promotion. And it’s sad how people are telling “white” “You Mad?” Howcome that person’s mad? Ridiculous.

    for his worst album

    [Reply]

    Ice Reply:

    @Be3000, Exactly, it’s funny how his worst album hits #1. His best, imo, is Trey Day, but Ready and PPP are very close contenders too.

    @Ice, that’s ur opinion. For me its his best.

    @Nathan, Thank you. I was reply to someone who shares the same opinion as me, no offensive to those who think otherwise.

    Album is good, but it’s certainly no “Ready.” I like every song expect “Check Me Out” and the chorus of “2 Reasons” is just despicable.

    … I just think he needs to apologize to R Kelly, you disrespected a great and then your whole swag is everything R Kelly has already done plus you will never garner his amount of sales. You need to respect the King of R&B boy!

    @K3N3volution, No; Trey should remain the quiet, ignorant child that he is. We all know Trey has light-years to go before he reaches Kellz’s WEAKEST note!
