Predictions Are In: Trey Songz Set to Miss Top 20 For First Time with ‘Back Home’

Published: Tuesday 13th Oct 2020 by Rashad

Trey Songz‘ sprung a surprise on fans October 2 when he revealed ‘Back Home,’ his first LP since 2017’s ‘Tremaine,’ would be released October 9 (as we reported here).

Led to chart battle on the heels of its title track and album cuts ‘Two Ways,’ ‘I Know a Love,’ ‘Circles,’ and ‘2020 Riots,’ the project marked a personal milestone for the 35-year-old heartthrob as it was his first ever to hit shelves without a Hot 100 charting single preceding it.

Unusual for the serial R&B hitmaker, the absence of a even a moderate mark on the tally may be representative of the lack of buzz surrounding the effort – a predicament which has now been reflected in industry analysts’ prediction for its first-week sales performance.

Details inside:

Trey Songz’ ‘Back Home’

First Week Sales Prediction (SPS):  <20,000

First Week Chart Entry Prediction: <#20


Songz reportedly tested positive for COVID-19 recently (click here to read more), a circumstance that’s undoubtedly impacted his ability to optimally promote the new project.

Nevertheless, should the predictions above ring true ‘Back Home’ will not only deliver the 3x GRAMMY nominee’s worst first-week sales to date but also the first studio effort of his career to miss the top 20.

    Lol sold less than Brandy. Tragic.

    Unfortunate because it’s some of the best work he’s put out in a while. But that’s just times we’re in. No one is selling like they used to.

    How did he miss the top 20 if he’s expected to debut at #20 am I missing something or I can’t read

      instead of shading you (which i was coming to do), here’s your “each one teach one” moment sis

      The < symbol in front of the 20,000 means "less than." So, according to tgj he will sell less than 20,000 copies and debut at a position less than 20.

      The whole album is too slow and boring.
