As reported yesterday (March 26), Justin Timberlake comes roaring in at No. 1 on the Billboard 200, selling 968,000 copies of The 20/20 Experience, according to Nielsen SoundScan. It's the singer's best sales week ever and the 19th-largest week for an album since SoundScan started tracking sales in 1991.
Bon Jovi scores its fifth No. 1 album on the Billboard 200 chart, as "What About Now" debuts with 101,000 sold in its first week, according to Nielsen SoundScan. The veteran band beats the also-debuting David Bowie, who arrives at a career-high No. 2 with "The Next Day," selling 85,000.
As reported earlier this week, Bon Jovi and David Bowie were vying for the No. 1 slot on next week's Billboard 200 albums chart. Bon Jovi has now pulled ahead, and it seems like the band's new album, "What About Now," is a lock for a No. 1 bow on the chart.
