/ August 31, 2012

It’s a happy day in Virginia for Trigga Trey!

The R&B heartthrob finally snatches the #1 spot on the Billboard 200 chart as Chapter V sits atop the list with 135,000 sold, according to Nielsen SoundScan.

It’s Trey Songz fifth full-length studio album and follows in-line with 2010’s Passion, Pain & Pleasure, which debuted and peaked at No. 2 with 240,000. It was beaten to the top position that week — just barely — by Linkin Park’s also-debuting A Thousand Suns. The latter set started with just 1,000 copies more totaling 241,000.

Chapter V, powered by a pair of top 10 singles on the R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart in “Heart Attack” (No. 3) and “2 Reasons” (No. 8). Songz’s album marks the first of four debuts in the top 10 this week on the Billboard 200, as DJ Khaled’s Kiss the Ring is the tally’s second-biggest arrival.
