Get your Scooby Snacks ready because congratulations are in store for Trey Songz. Indeed, the howler, who has been inescapable during the last few days while promoting ‘Chapter V’, has more than two reasons to celebrate as the record is projected to become his first #1 album on the Billboard 200.
‘Chapter V’ is on course to sell 125K-130K copies and easily notch the top slot on the Billboard 200 next week as Songz’s first chart-topping set. However, the first week sales of the LP represent a stark decline from those of his previous effort, ‘Passion, Pain & Pleasure’, which sold 240K when it debuted at #2 in September 2010.
‘Passion, Pain & Pleasure’ remains Songz’s best-selling album in the US with sales exceeding 842K. He has yet to nab a platinum-certified LP in that territory, and both ‘Passion, Pain & Pleasure’ and its ‘Ready’ predecessor are certified gold.
