It was always going to be a tough week for newcomers Lorde, Tyler Farr and HAIM, whose debut albums all went up against the release of Justin Timberlake‘s The 20/20 Experience — 2 of 2. Still, all involved can pop a bottle knowing they landed in the Top 10 of the Billboard 200.
Unsurprisingly, Timberlake goes in at #1 with his second volume of his 20/20 Experience, after it sold 350,000 copies. His previous LP, released in March, debuted at the top with 968,000 sold. At that time, JT had the Top 5 smash “Suit & Tie” under his belt and “Mirrors” on its way up the chart. So far his latest LP has produced the minor hit “Take Back The Night,” which peaked at #29 on the Hot 100.
Timberlake is now the second artist to score two #1 albums in 2013, following Luke Bryan. (The country singer pulled off the feat with Spring Break… Here To Party and Crash My Party.) The latter’s latest is still hanging in there at #4 this week.
