After an amazing Super Bowl halftime performance at the beginning of the month, it seems things just keep getting better for Justin Timberlake. His fifth studio album, “Man of the Woods”, just hit the top of the Billboard 200.
That’s no small feat for an album that doesn’t yet have a big hit single. Although the album only sold 293,000 copies in its first week, according to The New York Times, that was enough to knock Migos out of the No. 1 spot. His album, “Culture II”, had 88,000 sales.
This is Timberlake’s fourth consecutive No. 1 album, following 2013’s “The 20/20 Experience”. That album went on to become the year’s top seller.
MTV reports that the only studio album by Timberlake that did not reach the top spot was his debut album, “Justified”. That album hit No. 2 on the Billboard 200.
The singer’s most recent album has a bit of a country vibe to it, featured prominently on his collaboration with country star Chris Stapleton. The two debuted the song “Say Something” last month on “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon”.
The former “NSYNC” band member has already conquered the pop world. In his nearly 20-year long music career, he’s won 10 Grammy Awards. He’s also had roles in hit movies like “In Time” and “Friends with Benefits”. He recently earned an Oscar nomination for his song, “Can’t Stop the Feeling!” from the “Trolls” soundtrack.
The father of one doesn’t show any signs of slowing down soon. His “Man of the Woods” tour is set to begin in Toronto on March 13. He will visit 27 cities, finishing off in his hometown of Memphis, Tennessee on May 30.
