Justin Timberlake Lands 15th Hot 100 Top 10 With ‘Bad Thing’

Justin Timberlake has picked up another top 10 thanks to "Not A Bad Thing," his rising single from "The 20/20 Experience."

According to Billboard, the single leaped 12-8 this week thanks to increased interest from music listeners and digital sales of 88,000 copies.

"Timberlake tallies his 15th Hot 100 top 10, to go along with six he notched in 1999-2002 as part of 'N Sync. "Thing" also marks his first Hot 100 top 10 from "The 20/20 Experience (2 of 2)." The set's first two singles, "Take Back the Night" and "TKO," peaked at Nos. 29 and 36, respectively. RCA Records sources say that they always believed that "Thing" could be the album's biggest hit but wanted to release "Take" and "TKO" first since they better represent the album's R&B lean," reports Billboard. "The label also wanted to space out "Thing" and the fellow pure-pop "Mirrors," which reached No. 2 last June. ("Mirrors" became the second top 10, following the No. 3-peaking "Suit & Tie," from the first "20/20" album. Both releases debuted atop the Billboard 200.)"

"Not A Bad Thing" is also up 9-8 on the Radio Songs tally and up 47-37 on the Streaming Songs tally where it had 1.9 million streams during the latest tracking week.
