If they’re anything like us, Justin Timberlake fans are simultaneously excited and confused by the rollout of his new album, ‘Man of the Woods’ (February 2), and its singles.
Kicked off by the funky cut ‘Filthy’ (and a kickass futuristic video to accompany it), the song could barely make an entrance on the Hot 100 before the Grammy winner was unveiling its follow-up, ‘Supplies.’ Now that ‘Supplies’ has had a few days to grace iTunes and Spotify charts respectively, Timberlake and team are already announcing its successor, ‘Say Something’ (as we reported here).
And, while the second of the trio of tunes has yet to make its Hot 100 debut, its predecessor started the race at a lofty #9 placement on the chart last week thanks in great part to sales. Much like ‘Supplies,’ however, ‘Filthy’s figures on the streaming front have proven lacking on a number of outlets – a feat that speaks directly to the Timbaland & Danja-produced cut’s 20-spot drop on refreshed charts this week.
Is this a signal of things to come? Time will tell. Until then, check-in below to see who joins him this week in the top 30:
