Justin Timberlake Explodes With Biggest First-Week Sales Since Taylor Swift's "Red"
RCA's Justin Timberlake will score the biggest debut of the year, and the biggest first week since Taylor Swift's Red in October of last year.

JT also beats the first week of his sophomore solo effort, FutureSex/Love Sounds, which debuted with 684k six and a half years ago. Of course, as part of NSYNC, Timberlake still holds the record for the two biggest-ever first-week debuts. NSYNC's No Strings Attached opened with 2.4m in 2000 and Celebrity with 1.9m in 2001.

How high can Justin go? Stay tuned. Here are this week's key debuts:

Justin Timberlake (RCA) 750-800k

Kacey Musgraves (Mercury Nashville) 35-40k

Les Miserables (Republic) 24-27k ** (Deluxe combined with the previously released "Highlights" version.)
