Winning: Trey Songz Scores Sleeper Hit With ‘Na Na’ / Heads To #1 On ‘Billboard Hot 100’

Published: Saturday 19th Apr 2014 by David


Though his name may have been flung to gossip mongers speculating the route of his ‘beef’ with Hip Hop’s August Alsina, Trey Songz rises above said mess by keeping mum on the headline-grabbing matter.

Now, in making his presence felt where it counts, the Box Office  ‘slaying’ star has scored a sleeper hit with his latest single ‘Na Na‘, now on course to topping the Billboard Hot 100 well before the launch of its supporting album!

Details below…

After helping 2013’s ‘Texas Chainsaw 3D’ pull in $39,093,317 at the Box Office, Songz sits back and watches as ‘Na Na’ grinds towards the ‘Hot 100’ #1 spot after rising six places to #22 in the last week.

This, one week after the cut rose five spots to #30 on the very same chart, shining a light on the cut’s silent but scorching winning streak, set to impact the Top Ten in a fortnight’s time if its fares just as well as it did in the last two weeks.

If it charts any higher than #6, it’ll become the entertainer’s highest charting single since his Nicki Minaj-backed bop ‘Bottoms Up’, which was certified 3x Platinum by the ‘Recording Industry Association of America’ for sales of 3 million units, outperforming Rihanna‘s ‘What’s My Name‘, Mariah Carey‘s ‘Obsessed‘, and Beyonce‘s ‘Why Don’t You Love Me’, released in the same year.

Songz’ chart win comes as he continues work on his sixth studio album ‘Trigga‘, doing so alongside mentor Troy Taylor, who teased the project with the ‘Instagram’ message shared below…


In other chart related news, Lana Del Rey‘s ‘West Coast’ is set to open with US sales of 110,000 units as 27,000 new units sold pushes global sales of ‘Beyonce‘ to the 3,191,000 mark.

This, as Shakira‘s self titled new LP reaches the 322,000 milestone worldwide with 63,000 copies sold in the last week while Mariah Carey‘s ‘You’re Mine’ bids farewell to iTunes 2000 three weeks before the May 6th arrival of its parent album.

    Slay a bit Treycee.

    • DemiSlayvato April 19, 2014

      Francine Rivers wishes she could.

      • Molly April 19, 2014

        Frank Ocean? Lmao

  2. Molly April 19, 2014

    I doubt it will go number 1 but maybe top 15 congratulations tho trey.

    • NollywoodAngel (Trey Kissed Me) April 19, 2014

      Not because your fave is a flop means my one is too. #EnemyofProgress

    • TreyTreyHitTheNaeNae April 19, 2014

      Why don’t you worry about Nayvadia’s sales and keep Tremaine out of your dirty mouth you f****** swine!

  3. CiciFinnaBeABride April 19, 2014

    WTF? How did he get there without us noticing? Oh that’s right, we were too busy laughing at Local Lana.

    • Rosie April 19, 2014

      West Coast went #1 on iTunes in 21+ countries. Please learn the definition of “local,” since you fave’s biggest hit since 2006 only charted in 2.5 countries.

      • CiciFinnaBeABride April 19, 2014

        Hello Rosie, how many arenas has Lana sold out baby? 0? Oh too f****** bad b****.

      • Rosie April 19, 2014

        Dead when most of her European venues were arenas. When will Cierror? Oh wait. She can’t even sell out a ballroom, can’t she?

    • Rosie April 19, 2014

      Wow, sales are really the pits now! Only like 4 songs in the top ten last week sold over 100K. Streaming is really hitting the industry hard.
      Anyways, that’s more than most of us really expected from Lana, so I’m proud. We already know she’s not strong with singles, we’ll wait until UV’s first week to really see how this album is faring.

      • ItsCheryl2bh April 19, 2014

        Happy just sold 4 million though.

      • Rosie April 19, 2014

        Nowhere did I mention total sales to date, though. Reading comprehension.

      • FutureCIARA April 19, 2014

        Yesterday “Flop Coast” was #10 on US iTunes….

        A day later, today it is #15 !!!

        Why is it declining so fast sis?

        I told you it will be Out of the Top 30 next week! If she dont drop a video!!!!!

    • BeyReal April 19, 2014

      Do ciara fans really have the nerve too come on here and trash talk actual commercially relevant artists?! Wow … Her last few albums have been certified what? … Plastic? Paper weight? I forget lol ya’ll need too get off blogs and get on iTunes and help cici out lmao child byee

  4. Antonio April 19, 2014

    Please… #22 is now where near #1 on the Hot 100 especially with Happy, Dark Horse, Talk Dirty, All of Me and Let It Go still dominating 2-3 months later. This song will probably peak inside the Top 20 but no higher than #16 or #17… Loyal has a stronger chance of reaching #1 on the Hot 100 than this song tbh…
    P.S. Why Don’t You Love Me was not an actual single, just a video release and What’s My Name was released damn near at the end of 2010 so that song really doesn’t count comsidering most of it’s sales were in 2011

    • Tremangel April 19, 2014

      B**** stop, it keeps rising by 5/6 spots every week so it could go there in a few weeks if it keeps doing as well as it has been.

  5. BeyIsKing April 19, 2014

    Top 2000 though? kiiiiiii

    • BanjeRiri April 19, 2014

      Still no #1 single? Kiii.

      • BeyIsKing April 19, 2014

        Just because Rihanna is the ultimate singles
        artist doesn’t mean every artist has to be. Lile
        we always tell you people bought the entire album
        FIRST then singles followed. People didn’t buy singles
        because they had bought the album already

  6. Rosie April 19, 2014

    Wow, sales are really the pits now! Only like 4 songs in the top ten last week sold over 100K. Streaming is really hitting the industry hard.

    Didn’t mean for that to be a reply. The mobile site is messing up again.

    • VisionofMimi April 19, 2014

      I’m glad you can accept that Lana can’t sell singles. The first step is acceptance.

      • BaddieBey April 19, 2014

        And the next step is buying You’re Mine on iTunes.

      • MiMi Carey April 19, 2014

        Lets get partition to go gold first

      • FutureCIARA April 19, 2014


        Yall are carrying!

  7. Vee April 19, 2014

    What kind of self drag? So you’re even waiting for Beyonce to outsell Rihanna after just 4 months lmao.

    • Vee April 19, 2014

      Oh. That was meant for the Failed Lacefronts comment which got deleted lmao.

  8. Lily April 19, 2014

    Go get tha coins Trey but “You’re Mine bidding farewell to iTunes 2000 is the Ultimate death.

  9. SlayaraHarris April 19, 2014

    When will Lana.

    • Rosie April 19, 2014

      The real question is, when will Cierror? Since this will outpeak Local Party next week.

      • MiMi Carey April 19, 2014

        And don’t forget it will outpeak young and ugly

      • Rosie April 19, 2014

        At least it went platinum. Poor Moo and Cierror.

      • MiMi Carey April 19, 2014

        Mariahs single sales alone s*** on Lanas whole discography.

      • Rosie April 19, 2014

        Singles sales from when? 1898?

  10. MiMi Carey April 19, 2014

    Lana will never see another top 20 hit.

    • Rosie April 19, 2014

      And You’re Mine will never see the top 1000 of iTunes again.

      • MiMi Carey April 19, 2014

        Who cares about you’re mine just like 70% of Lanas singles it didn’t do well kii

    • ChakaYonce (Ain’t Nobody Better Than Bey) April 19, 2014

      Coming for a iTunesriah stan? I shan’t and I can’t.

      • MiMi Carey April 19, 2014

        Has Beyonce met her homeless brother yet?

      • BeyIsKing April 19, 2014

        @MimiCarey I think should be asking Matthew
        that question

  11. Netta the great April 19, 2014

    are the ciara stans on here serious? why are they always rude and shading everyone when ciara hasn’t seen the top of any chart in damn near 10 years? lana and mariah > ciara. even on their worst day they s*** on ciara…..

    • Sandra Fierce April 19, 2014

      They’re just mad that their fav has to share her boyfriend with 100 other kids and their mommas.

      • FutureCIARA April 19, 2014

        And the H.IV+ are mad that Bey has to share J with Rihanna!

        Is Floptition or Flop.O Gold yet?

    • Rosie April 19, 2014

      They’re mad because both of them will sell more than 57K first week.

      • FutureCIARA April 19, 2014

        Not Applause selling more than Flop Coast though!!!

        Thats the kii of the week!

  12. Netta the great April 19, 2014

    back to the topic: the title was sorta misleading. i don’t e this song topping the charts. maybe the urban charts, but the hot 100 i doubt it. but its nice to see urban music making its way back into the mainstream. i hope “loyal” will hit the top 10 next week. that song is hot!!

  13. Skyfall April 19, 2014

    I’ve notice a lot of urban artist has been slaying the charts lately, but seriously sales are pitiful right now, sell 60k first week and you can expect to have a top 5 album. Adele, Rihanna we need music now.

    • Rosie April 19, 2014

      I think the #2 last week sold less than 30K.

  14. MiMi Carey April 19, 2014

    The hive and their pet Rosie are upset kiiii

    • Skyfall April 19, 2014

      You’re a troll and a fake Mariah Stan

  15. Skyfall April 19, 2014

    I’m so sick of that Happy song being #1 it needs to be surpassed now!

    • Applause April 19, 2014

      The song is overrated like Adele music.

      • HausMuthaAdele April 19, 2014

        Tell that to the 25 million people who bought 21. S***.

      • Applause April 19, 2014

        25 million brainwashed bandwagoners. Next

    • Rosie April 19, 2014

      I agree. It was cute for a minute but then radio started playing it every 5 minutes.

  16. Applause April 19, 2014

    Not west coast selling less then APPLAUSE lol

    • Rosie April 19, 2014

      Not Chartflop being discounted to $6.99 AGAIN on iTunes.

      • Applause April 19, 2014

        Im sure interscope will do the same for ultraviolence.

      • Rosie April 19, 2014

        Born To Die had only one discount and it was after if was available for over two years. Chartflop isn’t even five months old and is already #183 on the charts and getting discounts every 2 weeks or so.

  17. Applause April 19, 2014

    Rosie sis i thought west coast was gonna slaughter applause tho?

    • Rosie April 19, 2014

      Receipts that I said that? No Lana stan on here expected it to go top 10 before Monday.

      • Applause April 19, 2014

        B**** please you said it in the Gaga post Lmao now you playing dumb d***?

      • Rosie April 19, 2014

        Once again, receipts? Before Monday I only said it would go top 20.

      • CherylSoldier April 19, 2014

        Rosie babe, I already dragged you with
        The receipts. You said applause dropped
        Off of the charts after a few days, while
        West coast was going to number 1. You said
        This on Tuesday after you saw Lana enter
        The top 10. Not fight for this love selling more
        In a day than west coasts in a week tho

  18. Lovebird April 19, 2014

    OMG why has west coast dropped to #12 from #10 yesterday? Giving me you’re mine tease.

    • Rosie April 19, 2014

      Overexaggerating, much? You’re Mine was out of the top 1000 at this point.

    • FutureCIARA April 19, 2014

      Its #15 on iTubes US babe!!!

  19. Lovebird April 19, 2014

    SCREEEAAAMMMIINNNNGGGG!!!!!! at west coast dropping to #20 from #15 yesterday in Canada. The white Sade my ass.

    • FutureCIARA April 19, 2014


  20. Lovebird April 19, 2014

    In case you missed it,

    US chart preview: @LanaDelRey, West Coast 110-120k downloads.

    US chart preview: @LadyGaga’s Applause 200-225,000 downloads.


    • FutureCIARA April 19, 2014

      Bittch, we carried in that August Alyssa post last night!!

      It was a kii

      • CherylSoldier April 19, 2014

        Yaaaaas. Not all of Cheryl’s singles selling
        More than west coast, in the f****** uk!!

  21. H2O April 19, 2014

    So it’s at #22 and nowhere near being #1?
    Samantha with these misleading titles … SMH

  22. Lovebird April 19, 2014

    @MiMi carey

    I’d be mad too if my fav was performing at these venues

    The Tabernacle – 2,600 capacity
    House of Blues Boston – 2,425 capacity

    DYYYYIIINNNGGGGGGGG is this all 4.6 million album sales can get you these days? Meanwhile west coast tumbling down the charts faster than XO.

  23. Rosie April 19, 2014

    Not the same weak drags it tried last night. So boring and uninspired, like the basic b****** it bandwagons for every few weeks.

  24. Rosie April 19, 2014

    Oh @ Fagbird literally copying and pasting it’s posts from last night.
    By the way, the capacity last night was around 3-4x that amount. Stay clinging to the same three venues though!

  25. QUEEN MARIAH’S IMPACT IS REAL! April 19, 2014

    I can’t AT HIM becoming SUCCESSFUL only after he collaborated WITH QUEEN MARIAH CAREY

    Mariah’s IMPACT Is real !!!

    Only the TRUE QUEEN

    THat Mariah Reign just won’t let up!

  26. Nessa1226 April 19, 2014

    Very misleading title.

  27. Lovebird April 19, 2014

    If only you can do the same thing you did when west coast came out (buy some more copies), it wouldn’t be tumbling down the charts faster than XO.

    • Rosie April 19, 2014

      No, Lana isn’t a singles artist like most of your faves. She’s never been that successful with singles.
      You can start properly dragging if UV flops first week.

      • Lovebird April 19, 2014

        Gurl, save the excuses. You were running around posting iTunes receipts when west coast first came out and now you’re trying to backpedal, not here for it.

        And not “not a singles artist” excuse I’ve heard thousands of times.

        In the meantime, West coast still tumbling down the charts even with all your delusions.

      • Rosie April 19, 2014

        OK, but tell me who expected WC to even go top ten before it actually did on Monday? The highest I expected was top 15/20. And at least it didn’t plummet after two days like some of the songs stanned on here do.
        I’ll kii if it pulls a “Fancy” and jumps back up in a few weeks or so.

      • FutureCIARA April 19, 2014

        The only way thatll happen is if she drops that video unexpectedly and gets those streams!! Or if you purchase more copies with your extra iTunes accounts!

  28. Lovebird April 19, 2014


    I agree, the title is as misleading as west coast’s hype when it first came out. Already dropped 10 spots and the week isn’t even over yet….I CAN’T

  29. Rosie April 19, 2014

    Anyways, I’m about to go shopping. Maybe Anthropologie or Zara, IDK what I should buy? Maybe you all should help me instead of perching on Kworb and watching Lana’s iTunes position more than her own stans do.

  30. number1k9 April 19, 2014

    Really TGJ? This title is extremely incorrect and misleading. What in the world. The song is not #1, and will likely NEVER hit number 1.

    It would be awesome if it did, but c’mon a solo Trey Songz hit hitting number 1 when a Nicki collabo Trey hit couldn’t?

    I mean props to Trey for this, I noticed this surprise last week, but change this misleading a s s title

  31. Navy Commander April 19, 2014

    August is probably at home crying

  32. Blue Ivy Carter-Rodriguez April 19, 2014

    Didn’t Beyonce outsell Miley and Gaga so why wouldn’t the Navy drag her for not outselling Rihanna? @ Vee

    Texas Chainsaw only made 39 million at the box office? Did they even manage to break even?

    Congrats Trey Songz, now your ex boyfriend Augustus will seethe like Rosie finding out her Fav is a lessor to Ciara. Kii..

    • Vee April 19, 2014

      Self drag again. When did Unapologetic come out compared to Miley, Katy and Beyonce again?

      • Blue Ivy Carter-Rodriguez April 20, 2014

        Beyonce had 4. Remember she re released it? I know 4 was awful to the hive but it did happen.

  33. Blue Ivy Carter-Rodriguez April 19, 2014

    How do you post videos on this site?

    • FutureCIARA April 19, 2014

      Just copy and paste (Youtube) babe!

      • Blue Ivy Carter-Rodriguez April 19, 2014

        Girl everytime I try, TGJ has to “moderate” my comment! What do I exactly copy?

      • FutureCIARA April 19, 2014

        You just copy the URL, And when you paste it has to be on its own line

  34. FutureCIARA April 19, 2014

    Yesterday “Flop Coast” was #10 on US iTunes….

    A day later, today it is #15 !!!

    Why is it declining so fast sis?

    I told you it will be Out of the Top 30 next week! If she dont drop a video!!!!!

    • Rosie April 19, 2014

      The video will be out Wednesday.
      Once again kii if she pulls a “Fancy” and flies back up the charts if Interscope sends it to radio.

  35. Rosie April 19, 2014

    Dead at FutureCedric trying to come for a #15 position when that’s still higher than Cierror will ever chart on iTunes. Anyways all this proves is that Lana is not a singles artist, and even if WC bombs hard in the US it will open with at least 2-3x more copies than “Cedric” did first week with less than half the promo.

    • Rosie April 19, 2014

      “it” as in Ultraviolence.

      • CherylSoldier April 19, 2014

        Death at you calling Lana a global act when it’s going number 1 in Botswana, Thailand and Macedonia.

      • FutureCIARA April 19, 2014


    • Blue Ivy Carter-Rodriguez April 20, 2014


      • FutureCIARA April 20, 2014

        B**** you tried it!
