Justin Timberlake Receives Plaque For Selling 6 Million Copies Of ’20/20 Experience’

TGJ Weighs In On Singer's Seemingly Silent Sales

justin timberlake 2020 experience sales 600x396 Justin Timberlake Receives Plaque For Selling 6 Million Copies Of 20/20 Experience

Justin Timberlake continues to prove himself quite the Pop force.

Sixteen months have passed since the singer made a triumphant return to the charts with comeback album ‘The 20/20 Experience’. Fast forward to today, the LP, its ‘Part 2′ extension, and combined set (aptly sub-titled ‘The Complete Experience’) have amassed total global sales of over 6 million units.

The incredible feat (which is rendered even more remarkable given the worldwide dip in music sales) saw Timberlake presented with a plaque backstage at his Hammerstein Ballroom show in New York last week. Peep the celebratory pic, which sees the star surrounded by his label and management, above. {Source}

********

Congrats are certainly in order for JT and his team. That said, we remain perplexed as to how he’s sold so many units and yet few outside his fanbase could name four songs on the album that weren’t singles.

After all, with fellow mega-sellers such as Adele and Beyonce, the musical and cultural impact of their dominance was incredibly hard to escape. Indeed, wasn’t the world chanting “surfboard” in unison? Didn’t everyone from Times Square to Antarctica know at least one song back to front on ’21’? And yet with JT  there was…‘Mirrors’…and even that was a generic box-ready radio number; one hardly equipped with the ability to sell this many albums.

Hey, who knows. Perhaps, we’re being unjustly harsh because, from our vantage point, the LP’s hype far outpaced its quality. Still, the uneven balance between the album’s success and cultural penetration does make us wonder…wonder…wonder.

Your thoughts?

    Why are people forever trying to compare Usher and JT – it’s not a rivalry, they are completely different artists. I’m not that familiar with Usher’s songwriting, but JT writes/co-writes not only the majority of his own music, but also writes/co-writes for others (including Madonna, Beyonce, Rihanna). He also put together songs for *NSYNC, and since you want to talk about sales, *NSYNC still has the highest-selling first week sales ever. Michael Jackson respected Justin as an artist, just like he did with Usher. Justin’s got the chops and deserves the respect, whether you want to admit it or not.

    CherylSoldier Replied:

    Are you sure you want to cling to album sales when your flop fav is doing pretty badly? It’s time to show ppl that your fav can’t sell singles or albums. What is she good for?

    Rosie Replied:

    The self drag at you expecting an album that isn’t even a month old to sell that much. Just as stupid and delusional as your fave.

    CherylSoldier Replied:

    Are you serious right now? Weren’t you perched in her hollering that your fav is an album seller yet she has done less than every pop star in one months time? Keep the excuses coming tho.

    Rosie Replied:

    It’s not like your fave is doing any better when after over a decade in the UK and three solo albums, it’s still an absolute and complete nobody and the definition of a non-factor worldwide. Why is it only charting in three countries? Why hasn’t A Million Lights sold platinum in the UK after two years? Why can’t she chart higher then #75 outside of the UK/Ireland? Why did Ultraviolence outsell it worldwide in one week?
    Don’t come for anyone’s US sales whatsoever until YOUR OWN FAVE release there

    CherylSoldier Replied:

    I’m coming for Lana’s sales everywhere babe. Why did ed sheeran do more in his third week than she did in her first? Why do you cling to cheryl when you were in here saying uv would slay artpop? Why has artpop done more in it’s first month than the ww album selling queen? We know cheryl hasn’t released albums in the us, but hasn’t she sold more in the uk than Lana? Isn’t that Lana’s biggest market too? So doesn’t that mean cheryl is selling more in her biggest market? And why is every Lana release outside if the top 100 in her biggest market? Death.

    Rosie Replied:

    Once again making up receipts. I love how you can NEVER bring up receipts for any of the “sales” or chart positions you post here. It’s not hard, all you have to do is copy/paste from Wiki. This is funnier than the one time you were trying to post the crowd from XFUSA clapping for Chav as proof they knew who she was. Screaming. You’re really not worth my time.

    CherylSoldierr Replied:

    Exactly WHAT am I making up? Can you tell me? Cheryl HAS sold more than Lana in the UK. Ed Sheeran HAS sold more than Lana. The clip was at LAX. Anyone who’s been to LA can tell you that.

    Rosie Replied:

    Why are you comparing the sales of an album from 2012 to one from 2014? What kind of logic stupid b****?
    Hollering at you clinging to Ed Sheeran for life when 70% of his sales come from two countries. Now THAT’S local. He’s doin great but still.

    CherylSoldierr Replied:

    Exactly WHAT am I making up? Answer me. 70% of Lana’s sales are from the US+UK too, maybe some Germany in there too? The self read.

    Rosie Replied:

    US/UK only make up about 55% of Lana’s sales.
    Oh well. Both are still better than having 90% of your CAREER sales worldwide come from the UK and Ireland.

    CherylSoldierr Replied:

    you stupid f***, they make up over 70% of uv’s sales.

    Rosie Replied:

    UV has sold over 500K+ worldwide (600K+ if you want to use MusiCharts). Less than 300K of that total comes from the US/UK. Ed Sheeran sold 500K-something first week on Mediatraffic yet at least 400K comes from the UK/US.
    Stop making up lies. Isn’t it just easier to tell the truth? Google must be a really hard thing for you. I don’t know why a Cheryl Cole stan, out of anyone, is trying to call anyone local when at least 80-90% of your fave’s RECORD sales come from the UK.

    CherylSoldier Replied:

    Where tf am I calling anyone local? Can you tell me? Stop putting words in my mouth. Your flop favs lead single peaked at 18 worldwide. My whole point is to point out that your fav is not an album seller. Every other female pop star has gone platinum faster than her. Just because she can’t chart singles doesn’t give you the right to call her an album seller. FLOP

    Rosie Replied:

    Calling someone local when you’ve been clinging to Ed Sheeran for the last month. Why do 70% of his worldwide sales come from the US & UK?
    And Chav’s last album did less than Ultraviolence with way more promo and a #1 hit, so your fave is obviously having trouble at this point. Not to mention sales were much better in 2012.

    CherylSoldier Replied:

    Why are you clinging to Cambodian and South African sales again?! Screams! Those are Lana’s biggest markets too! And keep clinging to local queen iggy because your fav literally can’t get a single to chart! I see you b****. LOL

    Rosie Replied:

    UV went #1 in 12 countries, most of those first world like your own. I’m sorry my fave is so global unlike yours that she can actually sell in places that can’t even get clean drinking water, though!

    CherylSoldier Replied:

    She needs that tribal tour. She’ll get bigger venues. It makes sense now, the 2k venues. She’s not a seller or a star.

    Rosie Replied:

    That one 3K venue you keep clinging too is still larger than anything Chav will ever book outside of Great Britain or Ireland.

    CherylSoldier Replied:

    But not cheryl judging at bigger venues than Lana has performed at in the us. She’s not big here

    Rosie Replied:

    When? Keep clinging to that one tour date when at least half of the venues on Lana’s last tour were comparable to some arenas in the US. X Factor USA doesn’t count.

    CherylSoldierr Replied:

    XF USA does in fact count babe. She got paid for it and appeared on tv, unlike Lana. When will Lana book any tv appearance btw? She can’t even get a presenters job.

    Rosie Replied:

    Dead at you thinking the audience at XFUSA even knew what the f*** a Cheryl Cole was. Is that why she was kicked off after the second (or third?) episode? It was just courtesy. Plus a failed attempt at breaking into the US. Poor Chav. She took THE easiest route at breaking into the American market and still failed.
    Not to mention that was the same year Lana did American Idol (her last US. performance to date), so your attempt at shade is invalid. At least Lana can book major festivals and get crowds of ~45K (Coachella) and 60K+ (Glastonbury). That’s more money and hype than just a typical talk/talent show performance.

    CherylSoldierr Replied:

    WHY ARE YOU USING FESTIVALS AS RECEIPTS?! SCREAMMMMM. Is that how desperate you’ve become? AND THE SELF DRAG!!. you mean to tell me that Lana’s last US perfomance was 2 years ago?!?!?!?!?!?

    Rosie Replied:

    Festivals > television performances. The artist earns way more money and performs for much bigger crowds. And both were televised worldwide. I thought you would know that since Glasto is in the UK (your fave’s only market) and is televised on the BBC.
    And wasn’t that Chav’s ONLY US appearance? The only self-drag here is you using a basic courtesy applause as proof that anyone in the US knows who Chav was. If they did know she would’ve released something there already. Logic, honey.

    CherylSoldierr Replied:

    Gosh, you really are stupid. Cheryl has stated that she has no desire to release music in the us. And I know you’re not using festivals towards Lana’s touring receipts now? You’re so desperate it’s funny. I didn’t realize how much of a nobody Lana really is here in the US. It’s one thing for Cheryl not trying, but this is Lana’s home market. She hasn’t been on tv for 2 years?! She is the definition of a nobody here.

    Rosie Replied:

    And like how Chav has no desire to break into the US (which is obviously a lie since the entire point of her stint at XFUSA was exactly that), Lana has no desire to be shoved into everyone’s face 24/7 like your attention whoring, basic fave does in the UK.
    If Lana is a nobody in the US, why did “UltraFlop” have the biggest female debut of 2014 there and is still selling better than most releases there?
    *waits for you to cling to Sam Smith and Ed Sheeran (who also had a 75%+ drop second week. Where are his lashings)*

    CherylSoldier Replied:

    But why are you inserting YOUR OWN ASSUMPTIONS there. She never said that lol. Another self drag. And she’s a wh0re yet your fav has the rep for being one? Sounds like a bitter stan to me. And gaga, Miley, Beyoncé, rihanna, katy, Bruno, jt, jay z, Sam smith, ed, etc all slayed Lana. Don’t bring me an 180k tea. Not impressed. Tamar almost did those numbers.

    But I just don’t understand why ChavSoldier brings up the artist it hates so much in EVERY post regardless if someone mentioned her or not. Honey, instead of worrying about Lana, who is unbothered since she hasn’t promoted the album whatsoever in the US, worry about getting your fave to release there first. Who the f*** can’t even get an official release into the US in their fourth era?

    And it clings to a two year old era in which there was NO PROMO (an excuse it continually uses for its fav), while its fav is doing WORSE in its second era (it’s really her fourth though). It drags people for bringing up past receipts yet all of its drags are from the past? Absolute death.

    Rosie Replied:

    b**** not when you STAY using 2 Words era receipts for Chav. You’re such a hypocrite. And even HDD (your favorite site as of late) said there was no promo. Just accept the fact that Lana is more popular than your fave in literally every place except the UK and hush.

    CherylSoldier Replied:

    When have I dragged people for using past receipts tho?! Screams!!!! Why is your fav flopping in her fourth era? Three out of her four albums have been flops!!

    Rosie Replied:

    Lana only has two albums under Interscope (Paradise is an EP). Try again. At least Lana can chart globally.

    CherylSoldierr Replied:

    Nice try. She has released 4 albums. the first two sold about 2k combined. Don’t try that sh!t here.

    Rosie Replied:

    At you expecting two albums that weren’t even released on major labels, let alone released physically to actually sell. Once again, you know absolutely nothing and you’re not worth my time.
    Born To Die was Lana’s debut on Interscope. You can bring up those two small-label albums all you want; it doesn’t change that. The irony of someone who hates Lana knowing about two albums that only hardcore STANS care about.

    CherylSoldierr Replied:

    Again, nice try. She RELEASED the albums and WAS SIGNED. THEY WERE FLOPS. own it.

    Rosie Replied:

    Lana was on a SMALL BOUTIQUE label, not a MAJOR like Interscope. Once again, you’re complete lack of logic just baffles me. You’re so stupid I can’t believe you really expect two albums that were made with no budget and on a very, VERY small label to even sell. If that’s a flop then we might as well call the first third of Chav’s career a bomb since according to Wiki her career has been active since the early 90s.
    You really need to explain why the f*** you know about these two albums that I have NEVER seen anyone mention whatsoever except STANS.

    Rosie Replied:

    *your

    CherylSoldierr Replied:

    Provide the receipts that say that Cheryl has been active since the 90s. You gullible b**** how is that even possible? Your fav signed with a label and released 2 flop albums that sold less than 2k combined!! The albums are on wikipedia for god’s sake you delusional f***.

    Rosie Replied:

    And Wiki also says that Lana was on a small independent label AND that Chav has been active since the 90s. If you’re gonna use it as a receipt at least check the rest of the page first. Once again dead at you having the nerve to check for those two albums that no one even know exists except for STANS.

    CherylSoldier Replied:

    Again, it’s on Wikipedia. That’s a site you should know all about since you just copied and pasted a million lights info. The absolute self drag. Why are you doing this to yourself? And how was cheryl active in the 90s and releasing music when she was 13 and in high school? You’re such a dumb f*** LOL

    CherylSoldierr Replied:

    Tons of promo? What was the promo in the AML era? Hasn’t Cheryl outsold Lana in Lana’s biggest market?

    Rosie Replied:

    Still using a 2012 album’s sales to one released last month?
    Not you acting like AML wasn’t promoted multiple times on British television and had a #1 single that was A-listed on BBC and also performed everywhere. Not to mention it was supported by a arena tour in the UK. All Lana had there was radio interviews and Glastonbury (which was in its second week) and it still did more first week.

    CherylSoldierr Replied:

    Where did I mention 2012 receipts in the last post? Are you f****** stupid? OVERALL, Cheryl has sold more than Lana in her biggest market. Get that through your tiny little brain. Stop the no promo excuses for Lana!! Seriously. If she was as big as you say, then she would have no problems with it. Just stop, seriously. Cheryl ended the AML era 2 months after the release. Haven’t I told you this before?

    Rosie Replied:

    Once again, comparing the sales of someone who has been out for a decade and went solo in 2008 with three albums to someone who JUST released their sophomore? And AML was released in 2012. Why the f*** do you expect an album that’s not even a month old to outsell one that’s been out for two years? I’m not even going to try with the rest of your post. Your compete and utter lack of basic logic is truly astounding.

    CherylSoldierr Replied:

    Hosie: “Lana is the new interscope queen. UV will outsell Artflop.”

    Being the “new interscope queen” = endless promo. These are your words. My logic is entirely sound. Seeing as you portray Lana in this way, you would think that she would have no problem with promo. But now, after the flop that is UV, you come with the excuses. Excuse after excuse after excuse. P.S.: 3 words sold more in its first 2 years than BTD did. She went platinum faster. sold 1 million faster. She sells more in the uk than Lana.

    Rosie Replied:

    Once again clinging to 3 Words to prove your point. The biggest hypocrite on this site. You lost. Just accept it already.

    CherylSoldier Replied:

    Marley Replied:

    According to who? Beyoncé has universal acclaim in her discography. Justin does not.

    Justin works on his albums and Beyonce doesn’t do much. Beyonce is considered a stripper and Justin is respected by people for his class.

    Maybe in your mind. Justin is respected not only by critics, legends and peers but also by public. All the critics, legends and peers can kiss Beyonce’s ass (or she can buy their praises) but the public won’t be fooled.

    The public respects Beyonce too. If they didn’t she wouldnt still be here slaying after 17 years. I dont get what point you’re trying to make.

    Um if Part 1 sold 4 mil WW and Part 2 sold 2 mil WW, doesn’t that equal 6 mil WW?. Tbh the same can be said about Adele and Bey, if you walk down the street, the only songs ppl will know off the tops of their heads will be Drunk In Love, XO, Partition, Rolling in the Deep, Set Fire to the Rain and Someone Like You. JT promoted the living of this album, which is why it sold so well, not to mention it scored him 3 Top 10s on the Hot 100 (Suit & Tie, Mirrors and Not a Bad Thing). Holy Grail was a monster collaboration, the Legends of the Summer Tour was universally acclaimed as was the 20/20 Experience World Tour. So TGJ, nees to do it’s research and stop rambling trying to throw shade at artists who aren’t Black because trust and believe, had King B not surprised the world with BEYONCÉ and did a standard release, she would’ve sold similar numbers to ARTPOP

    I honestly didn’t like this album. It was very bland and underwhelming. He tried to come across as soul-full and it wasn’t very authentic. As for part 2, he could’ve kept that. The only song known there is Take Back the Night which was very corny and dated.

    “That Grape Juice” you’re so annoying and so unprofessional and your opinion doesn’t count ! if you can’t name one song of the album the wasn’t single it doesn’t mean everyone is the same !! I don’t understand what’s your point, I think you’re just a hater .. his album was great, he makes better music than anybody out there in the business !! , you need to know that JT is a big name and has a huge fan base, his tour is completely sold out all over the world !! you’re so unprofessional, I don’t know any song from Rihanna’s album except for Diamonds , and from Beyonce’s except for “Drunk In Love” .. so what ?!?!.. JT and Beyonce are huge names so of course people would buy their albums .. JT had the best selling album of 2013, he had two n.1 albums , he won a dozen of awards (3 Grammys, 3 AMAs , 4 VMAs , 7 Billboards , 3 PCAs ….) so it seems that you’re the only one who thinks his album wasn’t good , because sales and awards approves that people like the album .. you need to start to be more professional !

    Another thing to straighten out is that these “two other albums” can not be compared to lana now and anyone who does is painfully stupid. The “first one”, sirens, was NEVER even released, The second one “Lana del Ray” was given a limited release by an indie label on itunes 2/3 years after it’s production and was never given any time to sell as lana bought the rights to it and took it down so that she could sign with a bigger label.

    Death at you using lanapedia–one of the worst lana del rey sources around. How could “lana del ray” be released for a year when it was put out in 2010 meaning it would have ran into her video games debut when she had no purchasable albums. Once again “sirens” was never released.
