Trey Songz does it again. On the Billboard 200, the R&B crooner holds the No. 1 spot as Trigga debuts with 105,000 copies.
Songz last album, 2012′s Chapter V, opened at No. 1 with 135,000 copies sold in its first week. Elsewhere, Robin Thicke’s Paula debuted at No. 9 with only 24,000 units sold. It’s a much lower slot than 2013′s Blurred Lines, which was a top-selling effort that moved 177,000 copies off the strength of his unescapable single.
Other notable release numbers include Iggy Azalea’s The New Classic, August Alsina’s Testimony, and G-Eazy’s These Things Happen. Here’s our breakdown of the hip-hop albums and other relevant projects this week.
