It’s official: Justin Timberlake’s new album “The 20/20 Experience” debuts at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart, selling 968,000 copies in its first week, according to Nielsen SoundScan. This is the highest achievement on the charts so far in 2013.
“20/20,” released on March 19, is Timberlake’s second No. 1 album and logs his best sales week yet. It follows his last release, 2006’s “FutureSex/LoveSounds,” which arrived atop the list with his previous high: 684,000. Timberlake’s first album, 2002’s “Justified,” debuted and peaked at No. 2 with a 439,000 start.
What’s more, with reports that a sequel could be released by Thanksgiving, Justin may need a few tuxedos to go with his “Suit & Tie.”
Get it JT
Kanye may want to shield his eyes as new reports claim longtime friend Jay-Z and Justin Timberlake’s upcoming Legends of the Summer is currently outselling 2011′s Watch the Throne tour.
Although still in the early stages, reports claim initial sales have crushed what Jay and Ye scooped out two years ago.
Kanye recently ripped into the pair’s new tour announcement, saying: “I got love for Hov, but I ain’t f*ckin’ with that ‘Suit & Tie,” so we can’t imagine he’ll be too thrilled when he finds out that Justin Timberlake and Jay are outselling their previous gigs by a fair amount. According to StubHub, the Jay-Z/JT ‘Legends of the Summer’ tour tickets sales in the first three weeks are beating the Jay-Z/Kanye ‘Watch the Throne’ tour during the same first three weeks on sale by an impressive 5 to 1.

To make matters worse, JT and Jay-Z may also be working on a Watch the Throne-esque project.
The singer has hinted at a potential album to tie in with their ‘Legends Of The Summer’ tour. Justin Timberlake has hinted that he and Jay-Z may release a ‘Watch The Throne’ style album of collaborations. The two stars are set to embark on their joint ‘Legends Of The Summer’ tour across North America later this year, after recently teaming up on Justin’s single ‘Suit & Tie’ . Justin has now revealed that he and the rapper have also recorded a number of other songs together that could see release one day.
Yeezy just say “F-it” and do an album with Taylor Swift
Kanye West has never been one to bite his tongue, but it’s about time he shuts up. Dissing Taylor Swift was one thing, but to diss Jay-Z? That’s a different story.
Putting the duo’s 2011-2012 “Watch the Throne” tour to the side, the rapper hit the stage during his show in London Saturday and voiced his opinion about Jay-Z and Justin Timberlake‘s hit single “Suit & Tie.”
“I got love for Hov, but I ain’t f–king with that ‘Suit & Tie,” he told the crowd as an instrumental “Clique” played in the background, which features him and Jay-Z. Continue reading
