Tyrese's 'Black Rose' Debuts At #1 On Billboard 200/ Scores His First No. 1 Album On Billboard 200
Congratulations are in order for Tyrese as the singer's final album, 'Black Rose' debuted at #1 on the Billboard 200 this week.
The singer has been hard at work following the release of 'Black Rose,' as Tyrese has heavily been promoting the album.
Tyrese has taken to social media recently to celebrate and thank those who supported 'Black Rose' along with a comment the singer made saying that the album helped make a statement.
The set charted at #1 with 81,000 equivalent album units earned in the week ending July 16, which was released on Tyrese's own Voltron Recordz label.
Of course, I'm quite disappointed to hear that this will be Tyrese's final project. I would love for him to continue making his statement, because he's one of the few outspoken artist in the industry, and the singer makes valid points on the lack of diversity in mainstream radio, which is why regardless of numbers, I give props where props are due, because numbers shouldn't be a correlation of the quality of the album. R&B is a slept-on genre, and in all fairness mainstream radio is basically music from the 'Pop' genre. I mean, R&B doesn't equally receive the same support as music from the 'Pop' genre. I'm happy for Tyrese's numbers, and it only gets better considering this was an independent project. Once again, congrats to Tyrese. I have not yet gotten my hands on the album, though I plan too!
