Trey Songz Tops Charts with ‘Trigga’

Trey Songz

Trigga is on top. Trey Songz scores his second No. 1 album on the Billboard 200.

The R&B singer’s sixth LP, which features appearances from Nicki Minaj, Justin Bieber, and Juicy J, sold 105,000 copies in its first week to debut atop the chart, according to Billboard.

However, Trigga marks the smallest opening sales week for a full-length album since 2007′s Trey Day (73,000). His previous album, 2012′s Chapter V, also opened at No. 1, selling 135,000 in its first week.

“Thank you to everyone who went and spent their hard earned money on my album. #TRIGGA #1 because of you all. I’m forever grateful,” tweeted Trey.

Robin Thicke’s seventh album Paula, named after his estranged wife Paula Patton, makes its debut at No. 9 with 24,000. The sales are a far cry from his previous album, 2013′s Blurred Lines, which sold 177,000 copies.

Over in the U.K., Paula sold a paltry 530 copies in its opening week. In comparison, Blurred Lines sold over 25,000 copies just one year ago.

    It was easy to get a #1 because there was no big competition

    @bey, I agree. 105k is not #1 amount of copies.

    But at least we can be glad that R&B album is on top. And the album itself is very decent.

    @bey, that’s why having a #1 album isn’t hard.. Just release it when nothing else is going on. Now a #1 song is something else #nooonooshade#noonooshade

    @Mrunhateable, And if that garbage pillNpoo went #1, nicki would also need to thank her ghostwriters. Yall cocksuckers act like you were in the studio when the song was being made. Nicki wasn’t there either so she shouldn’t have anything to say about others writing ability. She needed ester deen to help her write simple ass pillsNpoo

    @Raven-Symome, actually having a #1 single means nothing considering NO ONE listens to radio anymore. people are downloading the songs/albums they want not going to radio. this is why beyonce, justin timberlake, jay z & drake all had stellar album sales for 2013 as well as having some of the best selling albums of the past 5 years. also when an artist is trying to sell, don’t you think they would rather move an entire product (album @ $12.99) than a single @ $1.29?

    It’s actually a well put together album, his previous material isn’t really something I’d play unless I was tryna set the mood, but this album I’ve been playing constantly, it has that Pop/Hip-Hop/R&B vibe to it that a lot of singers have been doing these days, endless hard hitting 808′s and Trap drum-kits on this album, which isn’t a bad thing, I expect to hear a lot of this album the next time I decide to hit the club

    DJ Mustard, Mike Will Made It and other Hip-Hop producers have thrown Trey some dope beats and he actually does his thing on them, features from Nicki Minaj, Ty Dolla Sign and Juicy J whom I’m not necessarily a fan of but fit the songs they’re featured on make an appearance too.

    All-In-All I’d give Trey Songz’s “Trigga” a 7.8/10 which is a good coming from me (I’m quite the critique) I rarely give albums higher than a 6/10 these days (I really should start writing reviews)

    Well I have to intervene lol. The only reason Jay and Bey sold very well is because Jay didn’t announce anything about his album until a few wks before it’s release and Bey’s was a complete surprise. Look at 4, Watch the Throne and TBP3, they all huge hits, massive promo campaigns and so much hype and buzz but all 3 have yet to move 1.5 mil in the US alone so BEYONCÉ and MCHG (in my honest opinion) wouldn’t have sold that well. They both would’ve went Platinum, but just barely. Hate to say it, all artists are suffering. Look at JT and Usher, JT’s first 2 albums went 4x platinum effortlessly but 20/20 Experience was promoted EVERYWHERE and had 2 of the year’s buggest singles with Mirrors and Suit & Tie, sold 965k the 1st wk but has stalled at 2.25 mil in the US, 10 yrs ago, 20/20 Experience would’ve been crossed the 5 mil mark in the US and 10 mil WW. Usher’s last album was his best reviewed thus far, produced the biggest R&B song of 2012 with Climax and a huge Pop hit with Scream yet only moved 125k the 1st wk and just barely went Gold. Ppl aren’t buying albums anymore, it’s a fact. Singles and streams are the “it” outlet now. I wouldn’t be surprised that in a year or two, artists start releasing streamed albums. Artists are gaining 50 million streams with only 500k in album sales where as 10-15 yrs ago, artists were selling 5 million albums and 500k per single

    @Antonio, Watch the Throne’s sales are over 1.5m and The Blueprint 3 sold over 1.9m copies. Scream was not a BIG pop hit – it barely made the top 10 on the Hot 100 and it only spent a week or 2 in it.

    Your comparisons are stupid and irrelevant to this post. Goodbye.

    Trey is obviously very handsome and has a great voice but sex is all he knows how to sing about. It’s like he never gets bored of the same old theme and then has the nerve to say he’s trying to be a legend and, because the majority of this generation’s artists have no substance, he very well may be considered one. It’s pathetic that folks close to him won’t encourage him to explore his options.

    Now what now? Reply:

    @Triniti, It’s very boring. When I hear an artist and that’s all they talk about, they bore me. Most mainstream American artists only talk about sex/relationships, money, and partying anyway. Like people can’t handle hearing something else.

    That’s why there’s so few mainstream artists I can stand to listen to.

    I still haven’t listened to Trey’s album yet, I should check it out. Robin Thicke’s album was dope, he just didn’t have that “big hit” to support it; not to mention it seemed to come out of nowhere. What a contrast now from what he was doing last year around this time. “Blurred Lines” was a great album as a whole.

  10. Now what now?

    Terrible numbers for a #1. Most people don’t even bother to buy anymore.

  11. Now what now?

    Can’t feel at all sorry for Robin. It’s what he deserves.
