Justin Timberlake Projected To Remain Atop Albums Chart, Talks First Week Sales

Justin Timberlake's hit album "The 20/20 Experience" is on track to retain its spot at no.1 on the Billboard 200 albums chart.

Following strong first week sales, to the tune of 968,000 copies sold in the U.S. alone, sources say the album will move around 300,000 copies, which would be just strong enough to garner a second week at the summit.

"Whoa… Speechless. Shocked. Numbers go up, numbers go down. I just hope this album makes your Summer… You already made mine #bestfansever," Timberlake said, via Twitter, in response to the success of the album.

As previously reported, Lil Wayne's "I Am Not A Human Being II" is Timberlake's only competition this week, projected to sell close to, if not over, 200,000 copies.

"The Voice" coach Blake Shelton is also set for a strong debut, projected to be at no.3 with around 180,000 copies of his latest album sold.

Official totals will be revealed later this week.
