For most R&B staples, nabbing opening numbers between the 50 to 65,000 units mark has become the unfortunate norm.
So, you can imagine how delighted fans of ‘Trigga’ performer Trey Songz are today, now that his new LP has impacted the ‘Billboard 200′ with sales of over 100,000 units!
Full story below!
Topping the tally in its opening week, ‘Trigga’ rocks the ‘Billboard 200′ with sales of 102,996 units, outperforming first week digits nabbed by August Alsina‘s ‘Testimony‘, John Legend‘s ‘Love in the Future’ and Ne-Yo‘s last studio album ‘R.E.D’, which opened with 66,000 units in 2012.
Likely to have crossed the 200,000 units barrier had it been armed with a ‘Hold On We’re Going Home’-sized hit, Songz’ current reign on the chart comes as Lana Del Rey‘s ‘Ultraviolence’ suffers a sales decline of 47%, selling 24,371 copies in the last week after touching down on June 13th 2014.
So, with Trey‘s sales in mind, we ask…
Why do you think he fared so well?
