Justin may be having an awesome week here in the states, but the uk fans arent as nice.
Sister act HAIM bested Justin Timberlake this week.
The trio’s “Days Are Gone” album finally debuted at No. 1 in the U.K., dethroning Timberlake’s “The 20/20 Experience — 2 Of 2.”
According to the Official Charts Company, Timberlake led album sales by 700, but HAIM gained momentum Thursday night (closing the sales gap by a mere 28). By Saturday night, the sisters came out victoriously with 2,100 sales.
HAIM’s “Days Are Gone” includes the tracks “Don’t Save Me,” “The Wire” and “Falling” — all of which are on the U.K. top 40. “The Wire” fell from No. 16 last week to No. 24, whereas JT’s “Take Back The Night” jumped eight spots from 30 to 22.
The rock girl group consists of Alana, Danielle and Este Haim, as well as their drummer Dash Hutton.
In the United States, Timberlake’s album was No. 1 and sold 325,000 copies.
The projections are in for Justin Timberlake and Nelly’s respective LPs.
Justin Timberlake’s follow-up to his enormous come-back effort, The 20/20 Experience, won’t be following up when it comes to numbers. The sales projections for The 20/20 Experience 2 are in, and it’s looking like less than half of the original did.
While the first album pushed nearly a million sales opening week, the second installment is looking to move 350-375k. Although this may be lacklustre in terms of JT, it’ll still get him the #1 spot on the charts, and it’s way better than the amount Nelly is going to move.
Nelly’s new album M.O. dropped this past week, and it’ll basically be a flop if the numbers are correct: only 12-15k copies opening week.Are you planning to purchase either of these albums?
talks about how he in the back of his mind wasn’t sure if he missed an opportunity for the first album because he waited so long, it’s a short snippet but so worthy of taking a listen or two.
Justin Timberlake and Haim are set to battle it out for this week’s No.1 album according to the new midweek charts.
Haim’s debut, Days Are Gone, is just 700 copies behind Timberlake’s The 20/20 Experience – 2 of 2. If the ‘Take Back the Night’ singer is successful in his bid for the number one spot, it will be his fourth consecutive number one UK record.
Days Are Gone is the debut album from LA sisters Haim, and has been met with critical acclaim since its release on September 30th.
as if there was any doubt!
congrats Justin on the success now we wait for billboard !
