Justin Timberlake recently released his first new music in six years — and the sales are not showing any flagging in his popularity.
The first week saw 968,000 units sold for “The 20/20 Experience,” making it the biggest first-week sales for an album since Taylor Swift’s “Red” in October 2012. “20/20” is also the top-selling male album of the last five years, going all the way to No. 1 on the charts in the U.S., Australia, Germany, Ireland and the U.K.
Furthermore, “20/20” was streamed 7.73 million times on Spotify in its first week, which makes it second to the 8 million streams Mumford & Sons album “Babel” earned last year.
Single “Suit and Tie” peaked at No. 3 and has been certified platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America. “Mirrors” is shooting up the charts as well, currently at the No. 13 spot in the U.S.
