Justin Timberlake scores the Hot 100′s lone new top 10, as “Suit & Tie” rockets to No. 4 from its No. 84 debut last week. The lead single from his forthcoming album “The 20/20 Experience” storms onto Digital Songs at No. 2 with 315,000 first-week downloads sold. As previously reported, the total marks Timberlake’s best sales week for a download, besting the 250,000-unit start of his seven-week Hot 100 No. 1 “SexyBack” in 2006. It’s the heftiest start for a song by a male artist since Justin Bieber’s “Boyfriend” began with 521,000 the week of April 14, 2012. In its second week on Radio Songs (reflecting its first full week of airplay), “Suit” shoots 33-16 (54 million, up 50%), fueled by a record-setting start on Pop Songs, where it launches at No. 14 with more than 6,000 opening-week plays at the format.
“Suit,” which vaults 9-1 on the R&B Songs chart (and 27-2 on R&B/Hip-Hop Songs), grants Timberlake his 12th Hot 100 top 10 and first since Ciara’s “Love Sex Magic,” on which he guested, reached No. 10 in April 2009. He hadn’t inhabited the top tier as a lead artist since “Summer Love” rose to No. 6 in June 2007.
Timberlake now boasts twice as many Hot 100 top 10s on his own as he tallied as a member of ‘N Sync; the boy band scored six top 10s between 1999 and 2002.
