Justin Timberlake's 'Man of the Woods' first-week sales aren't so 'super'

Justin Timberlake’s Man of the Woods had a less-than-super opening week, despite his high-profile performance at this year’s Super Bowl. It moved 293K “equivalent units” in the U.S., which includes 242K in traditional album sales. (The “equivalent units” figure also takes into account digital track sales and streaming activity.) This is way down from Timberlake’s 2013 album, The 20/20 Experience, which sold 968K in traditional album sales in its first week. A Part 2 to that album, released six months later, sold 350K in traditional album sales. (Billboard introduced the “equivalent unit” concept in late 2014.)
