Justin Timberlake‘s prowess as a touring act is impenetrable.
Unfortunately, it now appears that his ability to shift albums has been crushed.
Bad news below…
In its second week on the Billboard 200 JT’s new album ‘Man of the Woods’ has suffered a severe sales decline of 76%.
As you can see, the LP spends this week at #3 after opening at #1 because it was outsold by the ‘Black Panther’ soundtrack and because it sold 76% less than it did in week one.
Fortunately, the album’s tanking has done little to harm ticket sales of its parent tour.
How things are faring in the United Kingdom? Just as badly.
How so? We’ll break it down.
‘Filthy‘, the album’s opening jam, sold so little in the nation that it slipped and stumbled by 26 spots in one week and now sits uncomfortably at #60…29 places lower than Rita Ora‘s ‘Anywhere’ which impacted the chart seventeen weeks ago.
Elsewhere on the albums chart, the albums fell out of the Top Five in its second week and now holds the #8 spot because it was outsold by efforts launched by up and coming acts Fredo and Mist who hold the #4 and #5 spots respectively.
