After the debut of the colorful Jason Derulo video for ‘Swalla,’ the diva has been given yet another taste of Hot 100 glory.  The result?  An extension of her already historic lead amongst females.

The Predictions Are In: Trey Songz’ ‘Tremaine’ Set To Sell…

Despite a unique roll-out (see: VH1 reality dating show ‘Tremaine the Playboy’), ‘Tremaine’ – the latest album from Grammy-nominated R&B crooner Trey Songz – appeared to be his least anticipated to date.

Though impressively managing to work its way to #2 on the iTunes Top 100 less than 24 hours after its March 24th debut, the LP has been greeted with mixed reviews from leading music critics and fans alike.  Moreover, the set – preceded by a host of music videos unveiled in the weeks before it hitting shelves – stands as his only LP to date to be released without a Hot 100-charting single ahead of it.

With all these things considered, industry analysts have rendered their prediction for ‘Tremaine’s first week sales sum.  To our surprise, the numbers are more than fair.

Curious to see how it stacks up against its predecessors?  We thought you’d be…
