Trey Songz hits the number one spot on American Billboard

Everyone’s favourite R&B crooner Trey Songz scored his first US No. 1 on the Billboard 200 album chart with his new release, “Chapter V”.

Trey has every reason to be saying ‘Aah’ not only because he’s fifth studio album sold over 135,000 copies, but because he has also kicked last week’s chart-topper “Based On A T.R.U. Story” from rapper 2 Chainz to the No. 2 spot.

Songz, ‘Chapter V’ is a follow-up from his 2010 “Passion, Pain & Pleasure.” Each of his albums has peaked increasingly higher on the Billboard 200, culminating in his first No. 1 this week. Cheers to the weekend.
