Justin Timberlake Keeps Top Spot on Billboard 200 for Third Straight Week


Even The Band Perry's big debut this week could not dislodge JT's '20/20 Experience' from the No. 1 slot on the albums chart.

For three weeks in a row now, Justin Timberlake's "The 20/20 Experience" continues to hold the No. 1 spot in the Billboard Hot 200 chart. Although it's down by a large 56%, its 139,000 result is still the best this week, bringing its three-week total to a staggering 1.43 million copies.

Not even The Band Perry's second album "Pioneer" debut of 129,000 can take the top spot from the "Suit & Tie" singer's mega successful new studio LP, settling for the runner-up position. Nonetheless, it's still an impressive feat considering the initial industry projections were not even as high. It even gives the group their first No. 1 on the country albums chart.

Another remarkable debut this week comes from Tyler, The Creator whose album "Wolf" lands on No. 3 with 89,000 copies sold. The rapper takes the spot previously held by Blake Shelton's "Based on a True Story...", which slips to No. 4 with 82,000, down by 59%. Rounding up the top five is Lil Wayne's "I Am Not a Human Being II" dropping four places from No. 2 with 68,000, down by 69%.

With the release of their comeback album "10", the New Kids On The Block debuts at No. 6 with 51,000. Trailing the boyband at No. 7 is rock band Killswitch Engage who arrives in the top ten with the 48,000 sales debut of their album "Disarm the Descent", which also leads the top rock albums chart.

Imagine Dragons' "Night Visions" keeps the eighth spot this week with 37,000 copies, down by 20%, while Pink's "The Truth About Love" moves down two places from No. 7 to No. 9 with an almost identical total, down by 24%. Closing out top albums this week is Bruno Mars' "Unorthodox Jukebox" which refuses to leave the top ten with 36,000 in sales, down also by 24%.
