Justin Timberlake has had a very busy couple of weeks, he hosted and performed on SNL, performed for a week on Jimmy Fallon, performed at SXSW, and he released his latest album The 20/20 Experience. Basically, he hasn’t been able to sleep. There has been lots of hype surrounding his newest album and some concern about how well it would sell. Billboard had reported a projection of around 500K albums sold in the first week, now they are reporting a projection of at least 750K but most likely somewhere around 800K. Timerblake’s previous album, Futuresex/Lovesounds, sold 694,00 in its album release week.
If just one JT album this year isn’t enough for you, then you might be in luck. The Roots drummer, Questlove, took to the website okayplayer.com to post about JT’s album saying, “I admire the balls it took to make this record.” Then, Questlove gave out information that no one had even heard of before his post, a second album coming out this November. The drummer wrote, “spoiler alert. 20/20 Vol 2 comes out in nov. (10 songs now…..10 songs later= 20 vision)”. At his album release show in LA on March 19, Timberlake confirmed a volume 2 but didn’t give details as to when it would be released.
If you’re itching for more JT songs, Traget has the exclusive deluxe edition album with bonus tracks “Body Count” and “Dress On”. Take a listen to the exclusive tracks below.
