Justin Timberlake has managed a rare feat, snagging his second No. 1 on the Billboard 200 in 2013 with a different album.
The 20/20 Experience Part 2 sold 350,000 copies during its first week, which was enough to land atop the chart, Billboard is reporting. Sales, however, are much lower than they were for The 20/20 Experience when it was released earlier in the year. That album sold 968,000 in its first week.
In addition to snagging the No. 1 twice in the same year, the "Mirrors" singer also has the distinction of having over 300,000 in sales for multiple weeks. Timberlake also has been the No. 1 spot the longest at four weeks in 2013.
Timberlake isn't the first in 2013, though, to grab the No. 1 spot twice. Luke Bryan beat him to it with compilation album Spring Break... Here to Party and then 23 weeks later with new album Crash My Party.
According to MTV, Lorde also did well on the chart, landing at No. 3 with 129,000 album sales. The other new album of last week by HAIM debuted at No. 6 with 26,000 in sales.
The previous week's No. 1, Drake with Nothing Was The Same dropped to No. 2 with 178,000 in sales for its second week.
