Trey Songz’ should land himself a #1 spot on Billboard, while Robin Thicke isn’t having such a great week.
Robin Thicke’s New Paula Album Flops
Via HotNewHipHop reports:
Trey Songz & Robin Thicke both had new albums drop today, July 1st, and just hours into their releases we already have early sales projections rolling in. While there can only be one top spot for the week, this week’s release appears to not even be close.
According to HDD, Trey Songz’ Trigga album is looking at a first week sales total in the 85-95,000 range. While that’s very respectable, it does fall mighty short from his previous album, Chapter V, which moved 135,000 units. Either way, Trigga’s 85-90 range more than doubles the anticipated sales total from the week’s next-biggest debut (which is Seether’s Isolate and Medicate), and should be good enough for him to land the #1 spot on Billboard this week. Ed Sheeran’s X, which will reign atop the Billboard 200 based on last week’s sales, is likely to fall below the 85-95,000 level this week.
Robin Thicke on the other hand isn’t doing quite so good. His new album Paula, is projected to sell only 20-25K units in its first week. Robin has received instant criticism & slander since he first came out and named his album Paula, which if ya didnt know was after his estranged wife Paula Patton. Plus, he not only lacked heavy promotion for this album, but he didn’t have a hit to drive sales like “Blurred Lines”, or even Trey’s #1 smash hit “NaNa”.
Paula definitely isn’t coming back now!
