Justin’s first album in 7 years, The 20/20 Experience, has been certified Double Platinum in the United States and is the year’s fastest selling album. It also earned Justin the biggest first week sales for a male artist in five years along with the third biggest digital debut in SoundScan history ranking just behind Lady Gaga and Taylor Swift. After its release, the critically-hailed album immediately soared to the #1 spot in the United States, United Kingdom, Germany, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Ireland, Switzerland and across Asia. It spent a rare three weeks at #1 in both the United States and United Kingdom and has so far produced two chart-topping singles with ‘Suit & Tie’ and ‘Mirrors.’ Internationally, the album hit the #1 spot on iTunes in 93 countries, stormed the UK charts to become the biggest debut of 2013 and earned Justin his first #1 album in Germany. It also shattered iTunes records to become the fastest-selling album worldwide in their history. The long-awaited release became one of Target’s top three best-selling albums in the past decade, topping first week sales of his last release FutureSex/LoveSounds. It also led Timberlake to become Target’s biggest selling male artist since 2002.
This year, Timberlake has made a series of headline-making appearances including well-received live performances during this year’s Grammy Awards and the Brit Awards in the UK, an interview on the long-running The Jonathan Ross Show in London and a performance and interview on Germany’s popular program called Wetten Dass. He also delivered a ratings-busting hosting gig on Saturday Night Live where he helped the show reach a 14-month high in audience numbers and did a week-long guest spot on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon where ratings were driven up 33% over last year among the coveted 18-34 demographic. Justin’s performances including several comedy sketches were often the most talked about events the following day and week earning praise from media across the world. He also delivered solid ratings for The Ellen DeGeneres Show in April where, for the first time in the show’s 10 year history, someone was both their sole guest and musical performer. Timberlake was honored this year by TIME Magazine as an Icon on their influential Time 100 List.
