Justin Timberlake Debuts At #1 With 980,000 Records Sold


Justin Timberlake scored a huge victory this week when his highly-anticipated The 20/20 Experience nearly debuted this week at platinum-status.

Last week, XXL reported that JT’s long-awaited third album was expected to sell somewhere in the 800,000 range in its first week. Now, reports are coming in that the album is expected to sell over 980,000 units, putting it 20,000 units away from platinum certification.

This news makes The 20/20 Experience the highest selling album by a male artist since Lil Wayne in 2008 with Tha Carter III, which debuted to 1.01 million units sold.

The news of Timberlake’s success comes directly on the heels that his and Jay-Z’s “Legends of Summer” tour is outselling the massive Watch the Throne tour by a ratio of six-to-one.
