Justin Timberlake Beating Mumford & Sons
Timberlake's new album is expected to sell over 800,000 copies its first week in stores, according to music industry projections. That would easily take the album to a No. 1 debut.
If Timberlake does sell over 800,000 copies that would make the album the biggest selling release of the year, topping the previous record holder Mumford & Sons' "Babel," which has sold 631,000 this year, according to Billboard.
Not only will Timberlake top Mumford & Sons, if the projections hold he will also top his own previous best album sales week.
His 2006 album "FutureSex/LoveSounds" enjoyed first week sales of 684,000 copies according to Nielsen SoundScan. Read Billboard's report for more details.
