Justin Timberlake tops Billboard 200 Album Chart


Justin Timberlake scored his second number one album in less than a year on the Billboard 200 albums chart. His latest release, “The 20/20 Experience, 2 of 2,” sold 350,000 last week, according to Nielsen SoundScan. This week’s release units sold is a steep decline from Timerblake’s first part of “The 20/20 Experience,” which sold a remarkable 968,000 units. But, Timberlake is the only act in 2013 to sell 300,000 copies in a week of two different albums.

Drake’s “Nothing Was the Same,” slipped to number two in it’s second week, selling 148,000 units. New Zealand-bred 16 year old, Lorde, landed at number three with her debut album, “Pure Heroine,” with 129,000 unites. In number four is Luke Bryan’s “Crash My Party.” Also on the country side in number five is Tyler Farr’s “Redneck Crazy.”

Sister act HAIM’s first full-length album “Days are Gone” debuted at number 6 (Number 2 on the Alternative charts). And to round off the top 10 are holdover albums:

7. Kings of Leon “Mechanical Bull” (26,000)
8. Cher “Closer to the Truth” (25,000)
9. Jack Johnson “From Here to Now to You” (20,000)
10. Elton John “Diving Board” (19,000)
