After pouring âPassion, Pain & Pleasureâ in his new album, R&B crooner Trey Songz is set to rake in the dividends. According to Billboard.com, his fourth studio album is expected to move between 230,000 and 250,000 copies in its first week, landing it at #2 on the Billboard 200 and #1 on the R&B/Hip Hop Albums chart. Industry prognosticators suggest that Linkin Park’s fourth studio set, “A Thousand Suns,” could sell as much as 250,000 to 260,000, which would take the #1 spot. Anyhow, the feat would be a career best for Songz. His last album, 2009âs “Ready,” debuted and peaked at No. 3 with sales of 131,000. The album, which is his highest charting set, has so far shifted 807,000 in the United States, according to Nielsen SoundScan. That sum is more than the combined sales of his two earlier albums — 2005’s “I Gotta Make It” (396,000) and 2007’s “Trey Day” (346,000). âPassion, Pain & Pleasureâ boast collaborations with rappers Nicki Minaj (âBottoms Upâ), which sits at No. 17 on the Billboard Hot 100 and Drake (âUnusualâ). In related news, Songz was recently tapped to join Usher on his “OMG Tour,” kicking off November 10 in Seattle. The two collaborated on a remix to Songz’s “I Invented Sex” earlier this year, which also featured Keri Hilson. Buy âPassion, Pain & Pleasureâ.
