TURN IT UP TUESDAY: What’s New In Stores This Week (July 1)

Touchin', lovin' his chances at a big debut.

Touchin’, lovin’ his chances at a high debut.

The year is halfway done! Hard to believe it’s gone by so fast, but the music keeps on rolling and the summer releases are just heating up. Here’s what albums and singles are in stores for the week of July 1:

  • Two years ago, R&B star Trey Songz scored his first #1 album with Chapter V. Now, he returns with his sixth effort, Trigga. There are four active singles from it at the moment: “Foreign” at Rhythm radio, “Na Na” at CHR, “SmartPhones” at Urban and “What’s Best For You” at Urban AC.v That’s a whole lot of songs. Look for it to be the top #1 contender on next week’s chart, but it could mark his lowest first week sales since 2007. (iTunes)
  • In what could be the most desperate release of all-time, and I mean all-time, singer Robin Thicke tries to woo his woman back on new album Paula. Lead single “Get Her Back” is a recent top ten hit on the Urban AC chart. It’s no Blurred Lines, but then again, do we really need that in our lives? The album will probably go top five but have no legs. As for Thicke and Paula Patton’s relationship… can we just not anymore? (iTunes)
  • They aren’t rude, but their hit song is. First a smash in Australia last year and now topping the digital charts in the U.S., MAGIC! is simply making magic with the public, and now Don’t Kill The Magic is in stores this week. In addition to “Rude”, the title track has achieved some minor success. This one is the wild card to watch given how new the band is, but with sale pricing in effect, it could make for a sizable debut. (iTunes)
  • Currently at #2 on the Active Rock list with “Words As Weapons”, South African rockers Seether return with Isolate and Medicate, their first effort for the Concord Music Group. After three consecutive top ten albums on the Billboard 200, this will probably place in the same region, though sales should be off from their last album in 2011. (iTunes)
  • Several older albums see deluxe reissues this week, including the 25th Anniversary edition of Bon Jovi‘s New Jersey (iTunes), the 30th Anniversary edition of Bob Marley & The Wailers‘s Legend (iTunes), as well as Jethro Tull‘s A Passion Play (iTunes) and Pink Floyd‘s The Division Bell. (iTunes)
  • Other releases out this week include: Colt Ford‘s Thanks For Listening (iTunes), Jenni Rivera‘s 1969 – Siempre, En Vivo Desde Monterrey, Parte 2 (iTunes), NONONO‘s We Are Only What We Feel (iTunes), Old Crow Medicine Show‘s Remedy (iTunes) and the original soundtrack to Begin Again (iTunes).

New digital-only singles that you can buy this week include:

  • “All About That Bass”, the first single from newcomer Meghan Trainor. (iTunes)
  • “Calm Down”, new from rapper Busta Rhymes and Eminem. (iTunes)
  • “Headphones”, a new single from Matt Nathanson and featuring LOLO. (iTunes)
  • “It’s So Hard To Say Goodbye To Yesterday”, this week’s album cut (and remake) from Jason Mraz‘s forthcoming Yes! album. (iTunes)
  • “New Flame”, the latest single from Chris Brown; it features Usher and Rick Ross. (iTunes)
  • “Weekend”, the first song from Alternative newcomers Priory. (iTunes)

Hit maker and singer Sia leads next week’s releases with the album 1,000 Forms Of Fear — how will she do against heavy rockers Judas Priest? A preview is coming in seven!
