Tyrese Scores His First No. 1 Album on Billboard 200 Chart


Nearly 20 years after releasing his self-titled debut album, Tyrese has finally landed at number one on the Billboard 200 with his latest album Black Rose.

In its first week of release, Black Rose moved 86,000 equivalent album units (83,000 in pure album sales), narrowly beating the 76,000 first-week bow of 2011’s Open Invitation, which debuted at number nine on the Billboard 200.

His debut album Tyrese peaked at number 17 on the Billboard 200; 2000 Watts at number 10; I Wanna Go There at number 16; Alter Ego at number 23; and Open Invitation at number nine.

According to Tyrese, Black Rose is slated to be his final studio album, but he may now want to rethink that…

Congratulations, Tyrese!
