On March 24th Grammy-nominated crooner Trey Songz unleashed his 7th LP, ‘Tremaine,’ to the delight of his faithful fans.
Yet, despite being preceded by a number of releases of some of its housed tunes including ‘Animal,’ ‘Playboy,’ Song Goes Off,’ ‘Nobody Else But You,’ and more, the project did not manage to drum up nearly as much buzz as Songz’ sets before it as none of the songs managed to enter the Hot 100 (a first in his career). With the aforementioned in play, industry analysts revealed ‘Tremaine’ was on track to be the singer’s second lowest first week sales to date – second only to his 2005 debut album, ‘I Gotta Make It.’
Now, as Nielsen has revealed its final report, it turns out those analysts were right. Tuck in below to find out just how many units the project shifted:
‘Tremaine’ Official 1st Week Sales: 67,000 SPS
Pure Sales: 45,000
Chart Placement: #3
Trey Songz’s Tremaine debuts at No. 3 — the only new arrival in the top 10 — with 67,000 units (45,000 in traditional album sales). It’s the fifth top 10 for the singer, and first since Trigga, which debuted at No. 1 in 2014 with 105,000 in album sales (this was before the chart transitioned to a units-based ranking)…
