With the release of his new single, Justin Timberlake is on his "suit and tie s---" and if song sales are any indication, all of his fans are too. Watch the song:
After nearly six years without an album release, "Suit & Tie" is on pace to sell between 330,000 and 350,000 downloads by Jan. 20. This total would give Timberlake the best sales week he has ever had for a song, beating out 2006's "SexyBack," which sold 250,000 in its first week.
“Suit & Tie” featuring Jay-Z went on sale on Jan. 14. after Timberlake’s surprise announcement three days prior about his return to music.The early success of the single prompted Timberlake to tweet his gratitude to his fans.
"Suit & Tie" is Timberlake's much-hyped return to music, a single off of his upcoming album, "The 20/20 Experience." The album will be his first since 2006's "FutureSex/LoveSounds."
While fans had been hoping for new music from Timberlake for months, the singer made no mention of a new album until last week, when he posted a countdown clock and a video of himself saying "I'm ready" on his website.
