Final Numbers Are In: Justin Timberlake’s ‘Trolls World Tour’ Soundtrack Sold…

Published: Thursday 26th Mar 2020 by Rashad

In 2016, the Justin Timberlake-produced ‘Trolls’ soundtrack – the official companion album of the animated box office blockbuster of the same name – peaked at #3 on the Billboard 200 thanks in great part to the massive popularity of its chart-topping lead single, ‘Can’t Stop the Feeling’ (performed by Timberlake).

Yet despite assembling a star-studded list of contributors including the likes of Mary J. Blige, Kelly Clarkson, Anderson. Paak, SZA, and more for its follow-up, ‘Trolls World Tour,’ the new effort – also produced by the former *NSYNC frontman – looks like it won’t be able to boast the success of its double Platinum predecessor.

See what we mean inside.

Released by RCA Records March 13, ‘World Tour’ was preceded to chart battle by Timberlake singles ‘The Other Side’ (featuring SZA) and ‘Don’t Slack’ (featuring Paak).  While the former peaked at #61 on the Hot 100, ‘Don’t Slack’ failed to live up to its titling as it’s missed the tally all together.

Undoubtedly worrying signs for its parent project, those fears were realized once this week’s refreshed charts indicated the set’s sales performance.

‘Trolls World Tour’ Soundtrack

First Week Sales (SPS):  7,500

First Week Sales (Pure):  3,100

Billboard 200 Debut:  #110

The placement above greatly pales in comparison to that of its 2016 forerunner as the latter debuted at #33 on the Billboard 200 and eventually peaked at #3 – an accomplishment earned after garnering exposure from its parent film (which went on to rake in nearly $350 million at the box office).

Like its soundtrack – which saw its promotion halted due to the impact of coronavirus pandemic – the movie ‘Trolls World Tour’ (also known as ‘Trolls 2’) is also on course to suffer the consequences of non-traditional promotion.

Still scheduled to premiere in theaters April 10, Universal Pictures will simultaneously make the kids flick available for straight-to-home rental (VOD) in light of many U.S. cities enacting mandatory “stay-at-home” orders due to the spread of COVID-19.

      • Gworl Bye March 26, 2020

        Meanwhile Racistmila is the flop of the year with her canceled tour & tanked album. Keep clinging tho.

      • Clarks0o0ñ March 26, 2020

        Let that sink it

      • Gworl Bye March 26, 2020

        And cabello still has the biggest female FLOPS of the year across the board. Let that sink in roach.

    He is over.

    Now I understand why he is getting back with nsync.

    That’s what u get for being a culture vulture.

    He had a good run.
    Atleast he outlasted usher.

    • IKNOWTHETRUTH March 26, 2020


      • Clarks0o0ñ March 26, 2020

        And Timberlake’s last number one was in 2016, when was usher’s last number one?

        How many emmys does usher have

        How many oscar nominated movies has usher been in?

        How many oscar nominations does usher have


        U should have sat down there and ate ur food

      • Gworl Bye March 26, 2020

        B****, Usher has over 25 years, more number ones, more albums sold, more talent and cultural impact than this boy b*tch will ever see, no matter how long ago his last #1 was. Now sit down, choke on your food, and stick to what you know:z-list flops like camila cabello that couldn’t even last 5 years.

    • Clarks0o0ñ March 26, 2020


      All this essay u wrote and u didnt still answer my questions

      How many emmys does usher have?
      How many oscar nominations does usher have?

      I never said justin was better than usher, I said justin outlasted usher.
      Reading is so difficult for you guys

      But I said what I said
      Deal with it

      • Gworl Bye March 26, 2020

        25 years, 9 #1s, and a DIAMOND album. Usher is better than timberflake. Period. I SAID WHAT I SAID dirtbag. You will deal.

      • Gworl Bye March 26, 2020

        p.s. Timberfl;ake has not been out longer than 25 years, therefore, he did not last longer that Usher. Go back to math class stupid.

      • Clarks0o0ñ March 26, 2020

        All this talk and u still didnt answer my question.

        Where is usher’s oscar nomination?
        Show me, I’m waiting….

    • eric March 26, 2020

      Usher started out in 94 and he rode the wave of Confessions til his next album in 2008. Justin started his solo career in 02 and started dropping off before his last album in 2018. Looking at their current status, Usher is the one who is clearly still in the game with more to give.

    • Clarks0o0ñ March 26, 2020

      My comments always get u girls PRESSED but yall will learn how to deal

      I said what I said.
      Timberlake outlasted usher, and that’s on what?

      Now cry about it rats

  3. I love big black c** March 26, 2020

    Oops! Y’all can blame it to SZA. Coz she’s cursed!!! My daddy JT shouldn’t worked with this hot mess at the first place.

    • Gworl Bye March 26, 2020

      Um, timberb*tch’s last album flopped too, SZA is not to blame for anything.

      • SLH March 26, 2020

        Huh? His last album was one of the best selling of 2018.

      • I love big black c** March 26, 2020

        JT had 2 top 10 hits from man in the wood. SZA had no top 20 hit from her latest album. Nice try! B-I-t-c-h!

  4. Bey1 March 26, 2020

    Whew chile. Back to nsync you go. You thought we’d be fooled because you worked with black people? We know your game fool. You stole from DAngelo, humiliated Janet and are friends with Woody Allen. Gutter snipe .

  5. PinotNoir March 26, 2020

    Kids decide US sales. Eww.
