While its performance may not have lived up to pre-release expectations, Justin Timberlake’s “Man Of The Woods” still dominated the US album sales and consumption races.

According to Hits Daily Double and BuzzAngle, “Man Of The Woods” sold ~242,557 pure US copies during its first week of release.

The inclusion of TEA (track sales/10) and SEA (track streams/1500) yields a first-week consumption total of about 295,982 US units.

Due Sunday, Billboard’s more authoritative data may differ slightly from that reported by Hits. The discrepancies will not, however, displace “Man Of The Woods” from the top of the charts.

The pure sales total will be enough for #1 on Billboard Top Album Sales, while the consumption tally will earn “Man Of The Woods” #1 on the Billboard 200.

Justin Timberlake – Man Of The Woods (242,557 pure US sales)
