The 'SexyBack' star could hit the number one spot on the Billboard chart with huge sales of his record.
Justin Timberlake's new album 'The 20/20 Experience' is now expected to shift over 750,000 copies during its opening week in the US.
The record had previously been expected to hit the 500,000 mark, but following huge opening day sales – that figure has risen.
According to Nielsen SoundScan, the album will give Justin his best first week sales of all time – eclipsing 2006's 'FutureSex/LoveSounds' – which notched 684,000.
The album would also be the largest sales mark for a male solo artist since Lil Wayne's 'Tha Carter IV' shifted 964,000 copies in 2010.
The 'Cry Me A River' singer's album is also expected to hit the number one spot on the UK chart this weekend and will give him his first straight summit position.
Meanwhile, Justin released the official music video to his latest single 'Mirrors' this week.
The promo is dedicated to the star's grandparents and the track spent three weeks at the top of the Vodafone Big Top 40 chart.
