Justin Timberlake Debuts At No. 1 With Nearly One Million Sold

While you’re blasting “Strawberry Bubblegum”, Justin Timberlake is probably celebrating with champagne and Jessica Biel kisses. His comeback project, The 20/20 Experience, has made a huge stamp on the charts, selling nearly one million copies in the first week.

According to Nielsen SoundScan, the Timbaland-produced album has debuted at No. 1 on Billboard with 968,000 copies sold in week one. This is his second No. 1 album, since FutureSex/LoveSounds in 2006.

Billboard reports that this is the 19th-largest sales week for an album since 1991 when Soundscan began tracking the data, but Justin’s old band, ‘NSync holds the all-time record after No Strings Attached debuted at No. 1 with 2.42 million sold.

Big congratulations to Justin Timberlake. He deserves all the success for this album, and I can’t stop rolling around in my sheets when “Don’t Hold The Wall” plays on iTunes. A follow up to The 20/20 Experience is set for release later this year.

    WERK JT!

    Also thrilled to see my boos NSYNC still hold the record for most album sales in a week.

    Yaaaaas! Strawberry Bubblegum is my SH*T! That’s the best song on there IMO, then Spaceship Coupe…Let the Groove In…then the second half of Mirrors (which Justin knows should be extended and made as an official remix).

  • caseyG101

    Personally, FutureSex/LoveSounds is my favorite album so far but yay for you, Glen Coco! My favs are Pusher Love Girl, Suit & Tie, Don’t Hold The Wall and Dress On.

    • That girl MEL!

      All I needed in this life of sin was that Glen Coco reference! YES!!

    • Jacqxz

    I just got it 2 days ago and I love it. His voice is just sex to me. My faves are Pusher Love Girl, I actually like Suit & Tie now, Mirrors, & Blue Ocean Floor (this is my shit right here). Its not his best work in my opinion, but its still a great album.

    Seriously what are people listening to? I’ve listened to a couple of the most talked about tracks on this album and I’m not feeling any of them. Mirrors is such a boring video touching sure but I got more from Avril Lavignes when you’re gone. I don’t think I’m the only one since on iTunes most of the top reviews seem to side my way but regardless he was gonna do big cuz it’s JT. Future sex/ love sounds is his best album thus far I believe. :(

    • Oh

      Agreed. I think it’s overhyped because he’s been missing for so long. Futuresex/Lovesongs was his best album. Out of the ten songs I only like That Girl, Spaceship Coupe and Pusher Love Girl

  • Jazz

    Good for him! I knew it would debut #1 because …I mean, it’s Justin Timberlake. Was this his best project? No. I actually think you could have stripped his vocals from the whole album and still listen to it full through (Timb is a beast). But uh…Don’t hold the wall gets me amped

  • Sweets

    Love the album! Hate Suit & Tie

  • Keetha Montana-Lucas

    this entire album is amazing… when my mother is calling me at 4am talking about a damn pusher love girl— i guess thats when i knew. Congrats Justin Randall! lol

  • Jacqxz

    OOOOH Furiaaaaa Don’t Hold the Wall is my FAVVEE too!!!! *twerks twerks twerks*

  • DM

    robin thicke does the ‘suave white boy with falsetto soul” thing much better than JT, IMO.

    whenever justin tries to be serious, i just throw it back to his bleached blonde, dark root brillo pad loose jheri curl of the late ’90s. fall back young grasshopper. but i’m not going to be stingy, spaceship coupe is a hit

  • TextualHarassment

    I am here for that ENTIRE album. The whole cd is just amazing. Strawberry Bubblegum, That Girl and Pusher Love Girl are my favorite songs.
