Justin Timberlake’s “20/20 Experience” Album Sales Moving Towards 900,000

The story continues to improve for Justin Timberlake’s “The 20/20 Experience,” which is now set to flirt with 900,000 opening week sales.

According to Billboard, the album is on pace for a weekly sales total of at least 800,000 and could reach 900,000–or even slightly higher–if its stronger-than-expected momentum carries through the weekend.

Estimates following the first day of sales suggested the album would finish the week in the 750-800,000 range, but the album’s refusal to relent has put the 900,000 mark in reach.

Prior to the release, industry sources were reportedly only forecasting 500,000 for the opening frame.

As a result of the monstrous sales total, “20/20” will easily top next week’s Billboard 200. Kacey Musgraves’ new release “Same Trailer Different Park,” which at last word was fixing for a debut in the 40,000 range, has a realistic shot at number two based on Billboard’s building album sales chart.
