Justin Timberlake debuts atop Billboard 200 album chart

As expected, Justin Timberlake’s "The 20/20 Experience" blew away the competition to debut at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart.

Billboard reports Timberlake scored his best sales week ever, selling 968,000 copies, according to Nielsen SoundScan.

"20/20" is Justin's second No. 1 album, following his last release, 2006's "FutureSex/LoveSounds," which arrived atop the list with his previous sales high of 684,000.

"20/20's" monster sales are the 19th-largest week for an album since SoundScan started tracking data in 1991. The all-time best-selling week was when Timberlake's former group, 'N Sync, saw its "No Strings Attached" album debut with 2.42 million at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart dated April 8, 2000.

Last week, Justin released a video for his new single, “Mirrors.”

Timberlake will promote the album on the “Legends Of Summer” tour with Jay Z, with dates starting July 17 in Toronto.
