Justin Timberlake is riding a digital wave.

Sure, the Internet collectively decided Man Of The Woods is not the tea, but that hasn’t stopped JT’s music from performing exceptionally well.

Woods is on track to debut with just under 300K in sales and top the Billboard 200 chart.ย 

It gets better. A new report from Nielsen says JT’s downloads spiked 534% following his Halftime Show at the Super Bowl last Sunday. The most-streamed track is not from his latest release, however. It’s actually his 2013 hit “Mirrors” off The 20/20 Experience. The song racked up more than 322,300 audio streams on Monday alone โ€“ a 177% increase from the day prior.

“Can’t Stop the Feeling,” “Cry Me A River,” “Sexyback,” “My Love,” and “Filthy” also saw a surge in streams. Look familiar? JT performed all of those at Halftime.

When Woods hits No. 1 later this week, it’ll mark JT’s fourth consecutive No. 1 album and the biggest sales week since Taylor Swift’s Reputation (though it won’t hold a candle to her sales).

In other words, JT might be the new Katy Perry, but people are still tuning in.

      1. Of course it was a diss, don’t Karlie Kloss it. Witness is boring and way too dramatic and that’s why people in general didn’t binge on it, but it was still a good effort and the videos for her first three singles have more than 350 million views EACH, which is absolutely crazy. Thing is, Katy’s career has always been huge in numbers, so whatever she does now will forever be less than expected. There simply won’t be another Teenage Dream era. And that’s OK.

  1. Why is it so many artist seem to be against making a good, fun, radio friendly pop record?? JT? Taylor? Rihanna? Beyonce? Gaga? Katy? Etc.. It feels like they are all trying to create some new sound. Why not just perfect what they are already great at?? I need some FUN pop music…
