The huge sales sum easily gives JT the biggest sales debut of 2013 and the biggest first-week for a male artist since Lil Wayne crossed a million units sold in 2008.

20/20 also crushes the debut sales week of its predecessor, 2006’s FutureSex/LoveSounds, which debuted atop the Billboard 200 with 684,000 copies sold.
