Terrible numbers for JT. I can’t even imagine what they would look like if he didn’t have the Super Bowl. And to think that I and many other people thought he would do +700k easily.February 7, 2018 at 2:33 pm #1202489558
‘Say Something’ is the best song of the album, I hope it becomes a hit.February 8, 2018 at 11:03 am #1202490129
Honey, “Say Something” is crappy too.February 9, 2018 at 12:06 pm #1202490888
Justin Timberlake is likely to have the best selling album of 2018 in the United States. But in all honesty, the artists that have been successful since the 1990s are slipping. I never thought that Eminem or JT would do poorly on the charts, but hey it could be worse. JT will have a successful era regardless with the tour. Album will sell well and he has to pick the right singles in order to get massive play on radio. I suggest “Wave” and “Sauce”. The final single of the album can be “Young Man” in 2019.February 9, 2018 at 12:37 pm #1202490916
He can’t even sell 300k with pre-orders and Super Bowl. How will he dominate the entire year and become the best seller artist?February 9, 2018 at 4:49 pm #1202490995
Honey, JT’s first week album sales are good in this day and age. Miley Cyrus, Selena Gomez, etc. would kill to sell 250-275k first week.February 12, 2018 at 3:30 am #1202492286

girl even mily cyrus would probably do 220k with the superbowl. these numbers are terrible for someone of his stature with that kind of platform.February 13, 2018 at 11:32 pm #1202493546
His first week sales are 293k. It is not good for a name like JT, especially with Super Bowl. Even Dua Lipa could sell as much as him with Super Bowl.
The metacritic score of Man of the Woods is so bad. The lowest one of his solo career. I think it is safe to say he’s not winning AOTY with a score like 54. Yes, metacritic is not what recording academy members care but it sets the lower line. Is there any album that won AOTY with a yellow score on metacritic in the last 20 years? He can get nominated though.
Katy Perry’s Teenage Dream is the only album that managed to get nominated for AOTY with a yellow score in 2000s, obviously because of undeniable chart success.
By the way, the album is expected to sell 70 – 75K in its second week, losing its top position.
I think his chance for winning AOTY is over and for getting nominated is so low since he ain’t having a chart success like Perry.
