Timberlake kissing close to 1m

JT ON THE MOVE: Justin Timberlake's The 20/20 Experience continues to outpace expectations, blowing past estimates of 950k to 975-980k, according to industry sources. The last album to sell a million-plus was Taylor Swift's Red, which moved 1.2 million when it debuted last fall. Timberlake's total would be the highest figure for a male artist since Lil Wayne scored 964k for Tha Carter IV in Sept., 2011. Sales estimates for the RCA album have gone from an initial total of 500k to 750k last week, 800k, then 850-900k to the current number. Kudos to the label team of Peter Edge and Tom Corson, along with Joe Riccitelli on the radio side and Timberlake's management team, for a letter-perfect set-up, including appearances at the Grammys, SXSW and Saturday Night Live to fuel the demand. How high can it go? Stay tuned. (3/25a)
