    This week Trey Songz's Trigga makes its debut on the Billboard 200 at #1, giving Trey his second #1 album in a row, following up Chapter V. Although Chapter V sold more records in its opening week (135k), Trigga came close under it with 105k. That's still a respectable follow up-- something we unfortunately cannot say about Robin Thicke. Thicke attained worldwide success with 2013's Blurred Lines, thanks in part to the radio-friendly and extremely catchy title track.

    By now you're probably aware that Robin Thicke's Paula hasn't turned out to be quite as impressive as 2013's Blurred Lines, in terms of both album sales and reviews, but over in the UK, it failed even more miserably.

    Today, we take enjoyment from the misery of others. It's no secret that most artists experience creative highs at their personal lows. Sadly, there's nothing like a good travesty to really make someone look deeper and pull meaning from their experiences--unless you're Robin Thicke; then it's just an opportunity to embarrass yourself in front of a nation with an album filled with contradictory lyrics and lazy instrumentals (sorry, Robby, I'm still a fan).

    Let's get this out of the way-- no, Robin Thicke's new album cover is not a picture of Paula Patton. You may have expected it to be, after Thicke essentially turned the record into a concept album about winning back his estranged wife. Perhaps he felt the title, Paula, and lead single, "Get Her Back" were clear enough, or maybe he just couldn't get clearance to use a photo of the actress.

    Robin Thicke encountered plenty of rumors this past year, in part due to the whole Miley Cyrus twerking debacle at the VMAs as well as a hyper-sexual music video for "Blurred Lines", which led many people to ask Thicke if his wifey, Paula Patton, was okay with all the naked women surrounding her husband. Everything seemed to be all fine and dandy at the time, however, perhaps they had troubles we were not aware as the two have announced today that they're splitting up, after eight years of marriage.

    In the competition between the same-day release rappers Juicy J and Big Sean Juicy J appears to be taking the lead, although Sean debuted stronger than Juicy initially. Not to say they both haven't fallen quite a few spots-- they have. However Juicy J's fan base remains more persistent that Sean Don, with Stay Trippy selling another 21k at #15 and Hall Of Fame selling only 18k at #24. Will we see Juicy J remain stronger than Sean over a longer period of time?

    This week Big Sean and Juicy J enter the Billboard 200, debuting one after another. Each rapper sold a respectable amount, however, it's nothing too crazy. Sean Don actually sold less than his debut album, although he promoted Hall Of Fame as better than his debut, perhaps the fans didn't care that much? They cared enough though-- he moved 72,000 units, which gave him a #3 debut.

    Robin Thicke's "Blurred Lines" definitely shares some stylistic elements with a certain era of funk & soul, but does that constitute copyright infringement?
