We know we’re late but we’ve gotta catch up on reviews for TrueClefMusic 4, coming soon!

JT’s writing, production and promo for this album is out of this world! 2020 is without a doubt his best work yet!

Highlights:

– Spaceship Coupe

– That Girl

– Mirrors

– Tunnel Vision

– Strawberry Bubblegum

Those are the standout tracks but the whole album plays all the way through nicely, each song tied to the next. Timbaland and the rest of the production team did an amazing job and Justin’s grown so much as a writer. This is one of the greatest r&b albums of our time, something we’d compare to Usher’s “Confessions” and Mariah’s “The Emancipation of Mimi”… We give it a 4.5 out of 5!

JT’s “The 20/20 Experience” First Week Projections Swell To More The 900,000 Units!!!

jt 2013 2020

YESSSSSSSS!!!! JT could easily shift a million copies of “The 20/20 Experience” by Tuesday! He’s just released the music video for his second single, “Mirrors”, while “Suit&Tie” featuring JT currently sits in Billboard’s 10! The promo for this album has been flawless, surgical almost and JT is about to see a career high as a result of his hard work in the studio and on the promo trail!

Billboard reports the following:

Industry sources now forecast that Justin Timberlake’s “The 20/20 Experience” could sell between 850,000 and 900,000 by the end of the tracking week on Sunday, March 24.

All Eyes on Justin

To bring you up to speed: On May 11 — before the RCA Records album came out on March 19 — Billboard first reported that the album was headed for at least 500,000. Then, once the album did drop, its sales projection jumped to 750,000 on the 20th, 800,000 on the 21st and now 850,000 to 900,000 today (22).

Could “20/20” go over 900,000? It’s quite possible, if the set performs strongly over the weekend.

With its massive sales, “20/20” will instantly become the year’s top selling album. It will eclipse Mumford & Sons’ “Babel,” which has sold 631,000 in 2013 according to Nielsen SoundScan.

Timberlake will also score his second No. 1 and his best-ever sales week with “20/20.” His previous high came with the arrival of his last album, 2006’s “FutureSex/LoveSounds,” which bowed with 684,000 at No. 1.

To put Timberlake’s monster sales in perspective, let’s look at how infrequently an album sells this many copies in a single week.

Since SoundScan started tracking data in 1991, there have only been 31 instances where an album sold more than 850,000 copies in a single week. 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 April 8, 2000 Billboard 200 chart.

In the late ’00s and into the ’10s, enormous sales weeks became less frequent, as more people opted to stream albums or purchase digital tracks.

Thus, since 2005, there have just been eight weeks where an album did 850,000-plus. All seven of them did so in their debut frames: 50 Cent’s “The Massacre” (1.14 million; March 19, 2005), Kanye West’s “Late Registration” (860,000; Sept. 17, 2005), West’s “Graduation” (957,000; Sept. 29, 2007), Lil Wayne’s “Tha Carter III” (1.01 million; June 28, 2008), Taylor Swift’s “Speak Now” (1.05 million; Nov. 13, 2010), Lady Gaga’s “Born This Way” (1.11 million, June 11, 2011), Lil Wayne’s “Tha Carter IV” (964,000; Sept. 17, 2011) and Swift’s “Red” (1.21 million; Nov. 10, 2012).

Sources say Apple’s iTunes Store is leading the way in terms of sales of “20/20,” with Target the No. 2-seller of the set. The latter was the only retailer with an exclusive version of the album. Target’s deluxe CD edition includes two bonus songs unavailable anywhere else: “Dress On” and “Body Count.”

“Initial sales for ‘The 20/20 Experience’ at Target are exceeding our expectations and put it in a position to be one of our best-selling albums in the last 10 years,” Anne Stanchfield, Target’s divisional merchandise manager of entertainment, tells Billboard.

“For the launch of the album, Target focused on bringing our guests more of what they love about Justin. Our two broadcast spots served up some surprises, and Monday night’s release party gave fans a chance to be a part of an intimate performance through an innovative partnership with Clear Channel and the CW.”

While iTunes is selling “20/20” for $10.99 — as is its main competitor, Amazon MP3 — Target is offering its exclusive version for $9.99. Trumping all three is both Walmart and Amazon.com, which are selling the standard physical CD for only $7.

jt 500k

YES! JT is planning for success and his album doesn’t even come out until Tuesday!! He’s going to re-release the project in November with 5 to 10 new songs, maybe a few remixes.

Billboard’s predicted a sales debut of at least 500k and we think JT’s good for it. He’s been promoting this album and performing everywhere, on top of announcing a North American tour with fellow icon, Jay-Z! It’s looking like 2013 is going to be all about Justin Timberlake!!

Justin Timberlake’s “The 20/20 Experience” To Debut With 500k+!!!

jt murder

YES!! We’ve been discussing via Twitter and in our Facebook group for the last couple weeks. JT has MURDERED the promo for this new album & is about to experience the rewards!

Billboard reports the following:

Justin Timberlake’s long-awaited album “The 20/20 Experience” doesn’t go on sale for another week, but industry sources say it’s going to have a blockbuster debut on the Billboard charts.

Those in the know suggest the album could sell at least 500,000 copies in its debut week, easily securing Timberlake his second No. 1 album on the Billboard 200 chart. “20/20’s” half-million forecast could grow even larger once the album reaches retailers.

The RCA Records set, due on March 19 in the United States, could score the best sales week for an album in four months. The last title to sell more than 500,000 in a week was One Direction’s “Take Me Home,” which opened with 540,000 after its release on Nov. 13, 2012, according to Nielsen SoundScan.

Since the start of 2012, only four albums sold in excess of a half-million in a week: “Take Me Home;” Mumford & Sons’ “Babel” in its debut frame (600,000); Adele’s “21” in the first full week after the 2012 Grammy Awards (730,000); and Taylor Swift’s “Red” in its debut (1.2 million).

The last solo male artist to sell more than 500,000 in a week was Drake, when his “Take Care” album debuted with 631,000 on the chart dated Dec. 3, 2011.

Timberlake’s last studio album, 2006’s “FutureSex/LoveSounds,” sold 684,000 in its first week, and debuted at No. 1.

The album is currently available for streaming in it’s entirety via iTunes!
