For the second week in a row, Justin Timberlake tops the Billboard 200 albums chart.
The pop/r&b star’s new album, “The 20/20 Experience,” moves another 318,000 copies (down 67% from the previous week) according to Nielsen Soundscan as reported by Billboard.com to remain at No. 1 in its second week of release. When added to the set’s first week sales of 968,000, the new tally helps JT go platinum, selling over 1 million units in only two weeks.
Justin’s incredible sales tops that of Lil Wayne who sells 217,000 copies of his new album “I Am Not A Human Being II.” Behind Weezy is The Voice coach and country music superstar Blake Shelton. His new album, “Based On A True Story,” sells 199,000 in its first week out. The sum is the country singer’s best sales week to date.
OneRepublic is also making some noise on the charts. The band scores a top 10 debut with their latest album “Native” selling 60,000 copies. The solid sales total is enough to place the band at No. 4 behind Shelton.
