A huge week for Timberlake...
Billboard reports that sales forecasts for Justin Timberlake's new album The 20/20 Experience say the album will sell over 800,000 copies by the end of the tracking week on Sunday March 24.
This would secure Timberlake his second No. 1 solo album on the Billboard 200. The new chart's top 10 will be released on Wednesday, March 27. The album was originally released on March 19 and was Timberlake's first album since his 2006 release Future Sex/Love Sounds. 20/20 is on course to become Timberlake's best sales week ever, bypassing the debut of Future Sex's debut of 684,000 copies sold.
The milestone would also make the release this year's top selling album so far, surpassing Babel from Mumford & Sons which sold 631,000 copies this year.
The album has reportedly seen its highest sales through iTunes. Target sold out their stock as well since they were the only retailer with an exclusive version of the album. The deluxe CD edition at Target included two bonus songs that were unavailable anywhere else with "Dress On" and "Body Count."
