The early results are in, and it’s estimated that Justin Timberlake‘s The 20/20 Experience has moved 980,622 copies this week, easily placing it at number one on the Billboard 200. The debut marks JT’s best first week in sales ever, with FutureSex/LoveSounds selling a very respectable, but inferior 684,000 copies its first week.
20/20 will serve as the highest selling first week for a male artist since Lil Wayne sold 964k for Tha Carter IV in September 2011. The album will also hold the title of the 5th biggest opening week of the decade, behind two Taylor Swift albums (1.2m, 1.05m) Lady Gaga’ Born This Way (1.1m) and Lil Wayne’s Tha Carter III (1m).
