Justin Timberlake, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis Top Album, Song Sales Halfway Through 2013

So far in 2013, it turns out that the experiences American music buyers are seeking out are those of the 20/20 and thrift store varieties. Billboard reports that, according to Nielsen SoundScan, Justin Timberlake‘s third solo LP The 20/20 Experience is so far the year’s biggest-selling album, having moved just over two million copies, while the most-purchased song from digital retailers is Macklemore & Ryan Lewis‘ ode to bargain-hunting, “Thrift Shop.” (It’s sold 5.5 million downloads in 2013.)

In what appears to be a “down” year as far as music sales go (where’s a 21-sized monster hit when the biz needs one?), no other albums have yet to cross the one million mark. The closest: Bruno Mars‘ 2012 LP Unorthodox Jukebox, which stands at 985,000 copies sold.

Another observation: Not only do JT and Macklemore collectively have two of the 10 best-selling albums this year, they’re the only acts who each have two songs that have sold more than two million downloads in 2013, to-date. (Timberlake’s “Suit & Tie” follow-up “Mirrors” is #12, with 2.2 million.)
