Justin Timberlake About to Have His Fourth Straight Number 1 Album

by VVN Music

Whether it's the built in fan base or his appearance at Super Bowl LII, Justin Timberlake moved a whole lot of copies of his album Man of the Woods in its first week.

Woods sold an estimated 242,500 albums according to Hits Daily Double's projections and, with streaming, that number goes to 296,000, giving him his fourth straight number 1 album in the United States. His closest competitor, Migos, didn't break into six figures.

Only his first solo album, Justified, failed to make the top of the chart, stalling out at number 2.  Since then, he's been in the top spot with FutureSex/LoveSounds (2006), The 20/20 Experience (2013), The 20/20 Experience - 2 of 2 (2013) and, now, Man of the Woods.

That's the only debuting album by a veteran artist to crack the Hits top fifty in either pure sales or sales plus streaming (now known as the Hits 50). Eminem has the second highest charting album at number 22 (sales + streaming) followed by Maroon 5 (#27) and Elton John (#47).

Final numbers will be out on Tuesday.
