the 20/20 experience
Justin Timberlake‘s The 20/20 Experience – 2 of 2 has been certified Platinum by the RIAA. The LP achieved the feat after just two months of distribution.
The first edition in the 20/20 Experience series sold nearly one million in its first week and remains the top debuting album of 2013. That album has moved over two million units since its release.
Justin Timberlake’s ‘The 20/20 Experience’ leads the year-end Top Billboard 200 Albums chart, the first time a solo male artist has crowned the tally since 2005. That year, 50 Cent’s “The Massacre” (on Shady/Aftermath/Interscope Records) claimed the prize.
‘The 20/20 Experience’ (RCA) debuted at No. 1 on the weekly Billboard 200, selling 968,000 copies in its first week, according to Nielsen SoundScan. At press time, it remains the largest single sales week of the year for an album, and reigns as the year’s best-selling title. It spent three weeks at No. 1 and was followed by sequel ‘The 20/20 Experience (2 of 2),’ which debuted at No. 1 on the Oct. 19 chart.
‘The 20/20 Experience’ spent 18 non-consecutive weeks in the top 10 on the Billboard 200 chart (all during the chart year). The album spun-off the singles “Suit & Tie,” featuring Jay Z (a No. 3 hit on the Billboard Hot 100), “Mirrors” (No. 2) and “Pusher Love Girl” (No. 64).
Timberlake’s No. 1 placing follows two years where Adele’s ’21′ ruled the roost. The English singer’s XL/Columbia set marked the first release to go back to back as the year’s top album since 1983 and 1984, when Michael Jackson’s ‘Thriller’ (Epic) was No. 1. While she may not be No. 1, Adele is still present on the year-end tally. “21″ is, coincidentally, No. 21 on Top Billboard 200 Albums.
As for Timberlake, this is his first turn at No. 1 on the year-end Top Billboard 200 Albums as a solo artist. As a member of ‘N Sync, he was No. 1 in 2000 with “No Strings Attached” (Jive).
At No. 2 on the year-end Top Billboard 200 Albums is Taylor Swift’s 2012 release ‘Red’ (Big Machine/BMLG), followed by One Direction’s ‘Take Me Home’ (No. 3, Syco/Columbia), Mars’ ‘Unorthodox Jukebox’ and Mumford & Sons’ ‘Babel’ (No. 5, Gentleman of the Road/Glassnote).
Billboard’s year-end Billboard 200 is based on chart performance during the chart year that began with last year’s Dec. 1 chart and ended with the Nov. 30, 2013, tally.
So for those of you who just want the music, don’t bother there is nothing extra, but if you are a collector of Justin memorabilia this is perfect. the inner booklet includes gorgeous photos and a gold inlay. It’s very well put together and is a good edition to any fans collection.
Apparently, the cavalcade of hype surrounding Justin Timberlake’s latest album, The 20/20 Experience, failed to reach at least one person.
While at Cannes to promote his new film, the Coen Brothers’ Inside Llewyn Davis, the singer/actor was approached by a French reporter who, according to Vulture, expressed concern that Timberlake was “making some sacrifice in music just because you are so focused right now on your acting.”
Timberlake was, not surprisingly, a bit taken aback. “I just put a record out, man!” he protested, adding that the “second part … comes out this fall!” He jokingly chided the reporter, “You gotta get off your little island, man,” before smiling and squeezing his arm.
But it didn’t stop there. The reporter pressed on, insisting he had “this feeling” about the precedence of Timberlake’s film career. “Right now, your top priority is acting, maybe. Am I wrong?”
Timberlake informed the chap of his upcoming tour, but then graciously discussed his latest movie. “I don’t take myself seriously in a way where I feel like I need to be vindicated in any way,” he said, as the interview finally wound down.
so I brought my camera….it died, tried using my ipod…. photos sucked… so I was left with my phone which wasnt fully charged. so this is what I got. I’m going to be posting ssome of my friends’ photos and videos shortly, when they all send me them!
I had such a good time at the show! it felt so good to be back in that state of mind, in my favorite city, seeing my favorite man <3
I do not know why but this always eends up in my spam folder…. weird.

The ‘Suit & Tie’ singer hit the stage at the Roseland Ballroom on Sunday night where he performed tracks from his smash hit album ‘The 20/20 Experience,’ and while there were plenty of adoring fans in the audience, Justin was only interested in one lady in particular with wifey Jessica stealing his attention as he sang hit single ‘Mirrors.’
“Jessica was sitting in the balcony with Olivia Wilde and Jason Sudeikis. When Justin opened the show, he kept looking right at her,” an insider told the New York Post.
“And when he sang ‘Mirrors,’ he sang the lyrics directly up to Jessica.
“She knew the lyrics to all of his songs. It was so sweet. She was looking at him very lovingly.”
How cute! Meanwhile, Justin has given fans a treat this weekend after announcing the release date for part two of his latest album and also a world tour.
The news was broken by the man himself on his Instagram page on Sunday, in a picture that calls the record ‘Part 2 of 2′ – indicating that there will be no further components to the album once the second influx is out there.
The date will be a delight for fans, following rumours that they would have to wait right up until November to get their second dose of JT’s comeback tuneage.
Man, remember all that excitement leading up to Justin Timberlake‘s The 20/20 Experience and the frenzy of buzz and speculation during his perfectly executed publicity campaign? Feels like it was ages ago, doesn’t it? We sure felt alive back then, didn’t we? Well pretty soon our lives will have that sense of purpose all over again, as Volume 2 of 20/20 is scheduled for a November release and key players are starting to reveal tidbits of information about the album. As JT’s Tennessee Kids guitarist Elliott Ives told us back in March, the forthcoming second volume will include material from the original 20/20 sessions, and now Jerome “J-Roc” Harmon — who co-produced and co-wrote just about every 20/20 song save for the two bonus tracks — confirmed Ives’ note about the initial sessions and also teased that there would be brand new material on the sequel.
Speaking with Billboard, J-Roc said he, JT and Timbaland had “over 30, 40 tracks” the first time around, so Timberlake will likely “take some of the stuff that we’ve already done, and of course create more music at the same time.” For some reason it’s exciting to think that Justin will be back in the studio so soon to record even more stuff. Based on everything that happens on Volume 1, he’s clearly not at a loss for ideas, so it’s great that he’s so invigorated by music again that he can churn out two massive albums in a year’s time.
But the most interesting thing J-Roc revealed in the interview was that “Mirrors” originated a few years ago as a simple, four-minute ballad.
“‘Mirrors’ was something we started working on in 2009, and [Timberlake] just shelved it,” Harmon said. “He’s like, ‘I’m gonna save this one, and this is gonna go on my album.’” J-Roc added that the extended R&B coda on the single was pasted on years later. “Once we got all the songs that [Timberlake] knew he wanted on this album, then that’s when we began to tie everything together, and the second part just fell in order.”
Do you think Volume 2 will outshine the first one?
damn …. when Justin touches something it turns to gold, we knew this, but I’m sure we didn’t expect it to happen three weeks in a row.
The 20/20 experience is sitting happily perched at the top of the billboard 200 charts for the third week straight since it’s debut on March 19th. Should be try out luck and bet on a fourth week?
Timberlake’s latest could be the first album since Taylor Swift’s “Red” to spend its first three weeks at No. 1.
It looks like Justin Timberlake’s “The 20/20 Experience” will spend a third consecutive week atop the Billboard 200 chart next week. The set could sell in the range of 150,000 to 170,000, Billboard estimates, based on the sales patterns of the last couple albums that debuted with a half-million or more.
We’ll have a more exact sales projection for “20/20″ in the next day or two. The new Billboard 200 chart’s top 10 will be revealed on the morning of Wednesday, April 10.
If “20/20″ holds for a third week at No. 1, it will be the first set to spend its first three weeks at the top since “Red” did so on the charts dated Nov. 10 through Nov. 24, 2012. (“Red” then left the top slot for three weeks, only to return for another four-week engagement at No. 1.)
The last male artist to rule for his first three weeks was nearly three years ago, when Eminem’s “Recovery” spent its first three frames at No. 1 (July 10 through July 24, 2010).
Next week’s top debut should be country trio The Band Perry with its “Pioneer” album. The act’s second set might sell around 110,000, according to industry sources, and bow at No. 2. Their self-titled debut debuted and peaked at No. 4 in 2010 with 53,000, according to Nielsen SoundScan. The smash set has gone on to sell 1.5 million in the U.S. and was the No. 6 best-selling country album of 2011.
The second-highest entry next week could come from Tyler, the Creator with his second studio album, “Wolf.” It may shift around 75,000 to 80,000 copies. His last set, “Goblin,” debuted and peaked at No. 5 in 2011 off a 45,000 start.
Other albums aiming for a top 10 start include New Kids on the Block’s “10″ (50,000) and Killswitch Engage’s “Disarm the Descent” (45,000).
The billboard results are in and the number one album in the us again is the 20/20 experience.
this marks the second album for justin to not a only debut at number one but stay there for two consecutive weeks. Congrats justin and the team for this amazing success.
