After Trey Songz helped Fiddy win with a cameo on the single “Smoke” from last month’s Animal Ambition, the G-Unit gorilla paid the R&B champ back tenfold by helping boast his SoundScan numbers in the East Coast.
Songz’ sixth studio album Trigga was released on July 1 and 50 hit up a Best Buy store in Pittsburgh and bought all the copies they were carrying. In a video uploaded to Instagram, he even showed him instructing a sales associate to check the back stockroom for the additional stash.
“@treysongz I BROUGHT THE STORE. NO CD’s left in best buy,in Pittsburgh tell the label i said reship LMAO,” 50 cackled on his social media accounts. Trey broke away from his grueling album campaign on Twitter to reply, “that’s 100!!!”
While the multi-platinum rapper doesn’t appear on Trey’s latest, the VA singer did manage to nab Nicki Minaj, Ty Dolla $ign and Juicy J among others for guest spots. The album is expected to hit #1 on the Billboard Charts next week, beating out Robin Thicke’s wife-titled struggle with ease.
