Justin-Timberlake-900-600

980,622.

That’s how many copies of Mr. Timberlake’s 20/20 Experience were sold in just the first week. The once N’SYNC member has graced us with three solo albums, all of which progressively did better on the selling charts. Justified sold 439,00 first week, FutureSex/LoveSounds moved 684,000 and according to Billboard 200, the official US Album Chart, The 20/20 Experience surpassed both with nearly a million copies. The album is fantastic if you haven’t already listened to it, his style and maturity have progressed, making the record smooth and diverse.
