Timberlake's '20/20' album sells 968K in 1st week


Justin Timberlake's comeback album has sold nearly 1 million units its first week out.

   Nielsen SoundScan announced Tuesday that the singer's third album, "The 20/20 Experience," has moved 968,000 units.

It's the 19th album in Nielsen's 22-year history that has sold more than 900,000 albums in its debut week.

   "20/20" is Timberlake's third album and the follow-up to his multiplatinum, Grammy-winning 2006 album, "FutureSex/LoveSounds." The new CD features the pop hit "Suit & Tie."

   Timberlake was strategic about promoting "20/20." He performed at the Grammy Awards, hosted and hit the stage at "Saturday Night Live," and spent an entire week on "Late Night with Jimmy Fallon."

The singer also partnered with Target for the album's deluxe edition and "20/20" streamed on iTunes a week before it was released
