Trigga, Trigga, Trigga!
Trey Songz is celebrating as he has secured his second No. 1 album on the Billboard 200 with his sixth studio album Trigga. The set, which was released on July 1, debuts atop the list this week selling 105,000 copies in the week ending July 6, according to Nielsen SoundScan.
Songz also saw his last album, 2012’s Chapter V, open at No. 1, selling 135,000 in its first week. While Trigga does give Songz his second leader, it does so with his smallest opening sales week for a full-length album since 2007’s Trey Day launched at No. 11 with 73,000.
“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, which was also released on July 1, debuts at No. 9 on the chart with only 24,000 sold. The album was entirely a passion project and had nothing to do with sales though, but was a form of therapy for the soulful singer, who is trying to fix his marriage to Paula Patton.
