It appears new music from Justin Timberlake was well worth the wait!

The much anticipated album “The 20/20 Experience” sold 968,000 copies in its first week, earning a number one spot on the U.S charts. Internationally, the record hit number one in 89 countries including Germany, Australia, Ireland and Canada.

Timberlake’s album also broke several iTunes records as the fastest selling album ever. It also claimed the biggest first week sales for a male artist in over five years.

The album was the third biggest digital debut in SoundScan history, only behind Lady Gaga and Taylor Swift.

Clear Channel partnered with Target to air the IHeartRadio Justin Timberlake Album Release Party, on March 18th. The Release Party was aired and streamed by the CW Network, 175 Clear Channel stations and Yahoo!

At his party, Timberlake confirmed a rumor that this album is only part one. He plans to release another album later this year. Stay tuned!
