What the..? Who the heck is purchasing this rubbish song? Justin Timberlake is on course to sell more copies than any other artist in a week as the release of his new single ‘Suit and Tie’ went straight to number one in the US and in the UK. The song, produced by Timbaland, had some mixed reviews from fans and critics but it looks like non of those comments have affected the sales for the song.
According to Billboard, Justin’s boring new single could “easily” sell more than 400,000 copies in its first week which would make it become the biggest-selling download single in seven days… EVER! You may be wondering who is currently holding on to the number one spot with the biggest-selling song right now, well Taylor Swift’s ‘I Knew You Were Trouble’ sold 416,000 units in October 2012 which has her holding on to the title for now, but Timberlake will definitely knock her off the top spot.
Speaking of recording his new album – set to be released later this year – Justin explained: “The inspiration for this really came out of the blue, and to be honest, I didn’t expect anything out of it. I just went into the studio and started playing around with some sounds and songs.”
The Grammy-award winner added: “It was probably the best time I’ve had in my career… Just creating with no rules and/or end goal in mind and really enjoying the process. What I came up with is something I couldn’t be more excited about! It is full of inspiration that I grew up listening to, and some newfound muses that I’ve discovered along the way. I’m calling it The 20/20 Experience, and it’s coming out this year.”
Well, it certainly looks like people really missed Justin after all these years.
