It seems like things just keep getting better and better for Justin Timberlake. Last week, it was announced that the singer’s third studio album, The 20/20 Experience, was set to debut at #1 on the Billboard 200 Albums chart with 500K to 750K in its first week.
Well according to Billboard, that information has changed. Industry sources have forecast that the album could now sell between 950,000 and 975,000 by the close of the tracking week, which is tonight by the way.
With all of the amazing reviews that the album has been getting from both critics and fans, it is most definitely possible that the album could sell that many, or even more!
If the album does indeed sell a million copies in its first week, it will serve as the 19th album to do so since SoundScan started tracking music sales in 1991.
Taylor Swift‘s Red served as the most recent album to hold the honor with a total of 1.2 million sold when it debuted at #1 last fall. Thoughts?
