Justin Timberlake has struck a new record with his new single, "Not A Bad Thing."
According to Billboard, the latest single to drop from "The 20/20 Experience, 2 of 2," gives him the distinction of having the most Pop Songs Chart number one charters for a male artist.
"Justin Timberlake breaks out of a tie for the most Pop Songs No. 1s among male artists, as "Not a Bad Thing" rises 2-1 to become his seventh leader. With the jump, he passes Bruno Mars, with six. Among all acts, Timberlake ties Lady Gaga; only Katy Perry and Rihanna (11 each) and P!nk (nine) have scored more. Timberlake tallied an additional two No. 1s with 'N Sync: "Bye Bye," which led for 10 weeks, and "It's Gonna Be Me" (five), both in 2000," reports Billboard.
"Not A Bad Thing" jumps just days after Timberlake appeared on "Oprah's Master Class," discussing his career, including the departure from 'N Sync and a collaboration with Michael Jackson. While that collaboration didn't happen, "Love Never Felt So Good," his posthumous collaboration with Jackson, has debuts at no.37 on the Pop Songs chart this week.
"Timberlake, meanwhile, notches his 25th chart entry as "Love Never Felt So Good," with Michael Jackson, debuts at No. 37. It's Jackson's first chart visit since "Hold My Hand," with Akon, reached No. 38 in January 2011 and already his highest rank since "Butterflies" winged to No. 36 in 2002," reports Billboard.
"The 20/20 Experience, Part 2 of 2," is in stores now.
