Justin Timberlake's "20/20 Experience" nearly broke a record for the most streams in its first week available. However, JT's album does achieve another benchmark for the streaming site.
Justin Timberlake's The 20/20 Experience very nearly sold one million copies in its first week at retail. The RCA Records project, produced by Timbaland also achieved a strong digital feat. Nielsen reported today, on behalf of Spotify, that JT's sophomore studio album very nearly broke a record for the streaming service.
20/20 Experience was tracked at 7,730,000 streams in its first week available on Spotify. That number is second only to Mumford & Sons' 2012 album, Babel, which according to Nielsen, achieved 8 million streams.
Additionally, it was reported in a press release that each of 20/20's 10 songs were streamed over 500,000 times. This was the first time this has happened on Spotify, with any album. The Jay-Z-assisted single, "Suit & Tie" led all songs last week.
