Seether debuts at #4...
Trey Songz has earned his second #1 album on the Billboard 200 with Trigga. The album was released on July 1 and sold 105,000 copies this week. This follows 2012's Chapter V, which debuted at #1 and sold 135,000 in its first week. Trigga is his smallest opening week since 2007's Trey Day debuted at #11 with 73,000. The lead single, "Na Na", peaked at #22 on the Hot 100 and went to #7 on the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs, his 19th top ten song. This is also the second #1 in a row for Atlantic Records after Ed Sheeran's x last week. It was released on the Songbook imprint.
Seether comes in at #4 with their fourth top ten album, Isolate and Medicate. It sold a little over 37,000. Their last album, 2011's Holding Onto Strings Better Left to Fray, debuted and peaked at #2 with 61,000.
Robin Thicke's Paula arrives at #9 with 24,000. It is his fifth top ten album but is down significantly from last year's Blurred Lines. That album was his first #1 and sold 177,000, a career high. Paula, meanwhile, is his lowest debut sales week since 2007 with The Evolution of Robin Thicke, which started with 20,000.
