R&B crooner Trey Songz has much to celebrate this week. On course to debut at #1 on home-soil with his latest album, ‘Chapter V’, the 27 year old making great strides in his International career too – as evidenced by his performance on the Official UK Album Chart this week.
Details after the jump…
According to this week’s tally, ‘Chapter V’ entered at the British count at #10; a feat which sees Songz earn his first top 10 album in the UK exactly one week after achieving his first top 10 UK single with ‘Simply Amazing’.
Prior to now, the singer’s biggest British success was with 2010’s ‘Passion, Pleasure & Pain’, which peaked at #22 on the Official UK R&B Album Chart.
We’re not the easiest on Trey, a fact blamable on his horrible attitude and monotonous music, yet we must give credit where it’s due. You know, being the fair and unbias site we are.
Sadly, we’re in an era which isn’t interested in exploring the commercial potential embedded in R&B. Hence, Trey’s charting -regardless of the stand-out appeal (or lack-there-of) of his music – is commendable.
Echoing earlier sentiments, we just hope that being embraced by an International audience will help Trigga explore new takes on R&B in a bid to serve up a more compelling product with future releases.
