Overall, Trey Songz has sold 191,416 copies of Trigga. The album earned a favorable review from HipHopDX with a 4 out of 5 X rating. "As the soundtrack for when the turn up eventually involves turning down the sheets," HipHopDX says in its album review, "Trey Songz has been one of the last decade’s most dependable hit record-making artists." 

Iggy Azalea Remains In Top 20, Common Falls To #29

Iggy Azalea continues her consistency on the chart this week with The New ClassicThe album, which has been available for 15 weeks, stayed in the #18 position it occupied last week.

      @Real Talk Wow. You are a moron on your period. Nothing you said was true at all, it's just a bunch of lies. You stans always get sensitive everytime someone criticizes your favorite artists. You made yourself look stupid again. Just quit commenting on this site, you pussy.

    • Real Talk

      If u look further down the comments, someone mentioned that his album flopped because of low sales. If u read the comments on other drake articles, when ever a Drake fan brings up albums sales, you haters say album sales mean nothing, numbers mean nothing. But when someone affiliated with Drake had low numbers, u say its a flop. I guess u hold drake to some high standards like he's supposed to carry everyone on his back. Also when ever lil Wayne and Nikki have low sales, on e again haters are quick to comment and say there flopping, but when some one says common had low sales, oh he's doing it for fun, he's making movies, it's not about sales, it's about quality. But if it was about quality then people would buy it dumbass. Love it how now I got like 2-3 oraybe the same hater. Whenever I post now I get a response from some Geek. And it is this ^: that be quick to respond and then post under my name with some gay Drake comment. Fuckin (favorite white word) FAGGOT

      You right, but I said "right now" And ain't no excuses I just support his grind cause he new and his shit hard. How you compare a dude with one previous mixtape to Trey Songz thats whats wrong with you niggas, always hating on a young nigga while you sitting down typing lol watch him blow up

    • Anonymous

      I'm pretty sure Trey Songz has sold more than PND, plus Trey went to #1, being above someone doesn't mean anything. Also, PND ain't underground at all, he's signed to a mainstream rapper's label. Quit making excuses for him.

    • beastcoast

      of course there's no comparison partynextdoor shit only available on itunes with no radio/tv promo but on the charts right now he's above him that says something. he is still underground its either mainstream or underground and he sure as hell ain't mainstream

      Yes, he is a flop. He sure as hell ain't underground if he signed to Drake. Also, look at Trey's numbers and look at PND's numbers. There is no comparison.

    • Arcvde

      Ok @beastcoast not trying to burst your bubble but drake did give him credit if you were a true fan of ovo like you claim to be you would have read his name in the nothing was the same booklet.....Partynextdoor is a phenomenal artist he does his own production.....so for a debut album that he produce himself with no help from anyone I think him being in spot 15 is saying something because he didnt put as much money in it as someone like trey songs and common so personally i dont think his album was a flop he's a underground artist what do you expect especially from a guy who didnt promote the album and only sold it on itunes

    • beastcoast

      He did do it on his own forreal, all drake did is promo his music via sound cloud and give him 2 light verses. after that anyone that heard his tracks was a fan, tracks like Make A Mil, Relax With Me, Persian Rugs, Welcome To The Party and Wus Good/Curious had nothing to do with drake. PARTYNEXTDOOR made the beat for Drake's Days In The East, & used his vocals on Drake's Own It, getting no credit just showin love. Drake only found PARTYNEXTDOOR cause he was already doin his thing.
