Justin Timberlakes’s junior effort, “The 20/20 Experience” is easily Tumberlake’s most mature and inspired musical effort to date. Hard to believe it’s been 7 WHOLE YEARS since this musical crooner blessed us with his soulful voice and tantalizing tenor.

                                 Timberlake’s formula this time around?– “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it!”

For this project (which is also a “2-part” album, confirmed by Timberlake to be released later this year), J.T.  reunited with musical genius,” Timbaland”– the same mega producer and ingenue who innovated the  multifarious electro/R&B infused sound for his critically acclaimed sophomore album, “Future Sex/Love Sounds”.

In the past, Timberlake has addressed his hiatus from the music scene, listing a wide array of reasons ranging  from an overall lack of inspiration, to his seemingly heavy focus on his blossoming acting career–needless to say we’re more than happy to have him back and better than ever!!

“The 20/20 Experience” was released March 15th and has since, been met with favorable reviews from his industry peers and critics alike. In an article with Billboard Biz, surrounding the current and projected success of the album, it states,

It’s possible that 20/20 could reach a million, but sources are hesitant to go that far with their sales projections. We’ll have to see how the rest of Sunday shakes out for the album. But, it would seem that the album has a quite real shot at reaching the magic million mark.

If 20/20 sells a million in its first week, the RCA Records set would become only the 19th album to do so since SoundScan started tracking music sales in 1991. The last album to sell a million in a week was Taylor Swift’s Red, which moved 1.2 million when it debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart last fall.

Presently, Timberlake is gunning for the best sales week for an album by a male artist since Lil Wayne’s Tha Carter IV sold 964,000 when it debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 dated Sept. 17, 2011.

On May 11 — before the RCA Records album came out on March 19 — Billboard first reported that 20/20 was headed for at least 500,000. Then, once the album did drop, its sales projection jumped to 750,000 on the 20th, 800,000 on the 21st, 850,000 to 900,000 on the 22 and now 950,000 to 975,000 today (24). (BillboardBiz)

This is quite a success especially considering his record of “first week sales”

  • Justified– 439,000 copies first week
  • Future Sex/Love Sounds– 684,000 first week
  • The 20/20 Experience– 1 million (projected) update- 984,000

Well color us completely impressed!! We love Justin Timberlake and heavily urge all of our readers to buy the album. It truly is a feast for the ears!
