The good news keeps rolling in for Justin Timberlake. With his new album The 20/20 Experience hitting shelves on Tuesday, early reports had the LP selling an estimated 500,000 copies opening week. Heading into this weekend, those numbers continue to grow as the pop star’s set to have his biggest selling week as a solo artist, now projected to move over 800,000 in sales.

Billboard reports Timberlake’s new project will eclipse his FutureSex/LoveSounds LP, which debuted at 684,000 units sold in 2006. Should figures hold up, Justin’s second No. 1 solo album will be the largest sales week for a male artist since Lil’ Wayne’s Tha Carter IV sold 964,000 opening week back in 2010. Overall, the last time an album debuted with 750,000 plus sales was Taylor Swift’s Red album, selling 1.2 million last November.
