3/28/2013




JUSTIN TIMBERLAKE
 has the new #1 album in the country after selling 968,000 copies of "The 20/20 Experience".  That's the best debut for an album since TAYLOR SWIFT'S "Red" sold 1.2 million copies when it was released back in November.

It's actually the 19th-largest week for an album since SoundScan started tracking sales in 1991.  The all-time best-selling week belongs to Justin's former group, 'N SYNC, whose "No Strings Attached" debuted with 2.4 million copies in April of 2000. 

Timberlake's last solo album, "FutureSex/LoveSounds", hit #1 with 684,000 copies in 2006, while his 2002 debut, "Justified", hit #2 with 439,000 copies.

The only other new debut in the Top 10 this week comes from country singer KACEY MUSGRAVES, whose new album, "Same Trailer Different Park", sold 43,000 copies in the runner-up slot.  Here's this week's full Top 10 . . .
