Songbook Entertainment/Atlantic recording artist Trey Songz has made a stunning chart debut with his hugely anticipated new album, “TRIGGA.” Described by USA TODAY as an “… engaging sixth album, TRIGGA (*** out of four), is a statement of intent – not of a bold new direction, but rather of the singer’s determination to solidify the hitmaker’s pedigree he’s worked hard to earn.” With over 4 million in streams at paid subscription accounts and a little over 5 million video/audio views on YouTube, the collection – which includes the hit singles “SmartPhones,” “Foreign,” and the RIAA gold certified “Na Na” – entered the SoundScan/Billboard 200 at #1 with sales in excess of 100K. In addition, “TRIGGA” debuted at #1 on Billboard’s “Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums” ranking. This marks Trey’s 2nd consecutive #1 album on the Billboard 200 Albums Chart. Trey Songz is also the first artist to secure the top spot on Billboard’s new “Artist 100” chart that blends information culled from sales, track sales, radio airplay, streaming, and social media to provide a multi-dimensional ranking of artist popularity.  Internationally, “TRIGGA” made a splash overseas from the UK to France to Portugal, Africa and the Caribbean’s, entering the charts amongst the top 10.

Post image for Turned Up & Tapped Out: Why I’m Giving Up On Black Radio That Plays Rap Music

I officially give up on Black radio stations that play Hip Hop.

Seriously.

I’m over the disrespect. Finished with the blatant disregard for the audience. Totally through with their insistence on force-feeding curse-filled, misogynistic, lyrical porn through the airwaves and expecting this self-respecting, intelligent, passionate African American mother to take it to the head, sans complaint or concern.

What’s got my Victoria’s Secrets in a bunch? Last week, on my way back from dropping my kids off at school, I tuned into Atlanta’s R&B/Hip Hop station V103 to listen to one of my favorite morning show hosts, Ryan Cameron and his cast of funny, down-to-Earth co-horts (whom I can’t listen to with kids in the car) when on came a new song fresh off the New Orleans plantation that is Cash Money Records: Birdman’s “Tapout,” featuring Lil’ Wayne, Future, Mack Maine and Nicki Minaj. What I heard was so foul, so vile, so effing inappropriate, that I actually had visions of smashing my own damn radio with a sledgehammer. Witness the opening lyrics to this musical madness, courtesy of Wayne: Read more…
