The 'Cry Me A River' singer thanks fans for all their support after scoring his latest number one.

Justin Timberlake has taken to Twitter to thank fans for all their support with his new album 'The 20/20 Experience' and said he has been left "speechless" when he heard about the first week sales.

The record became the singer's best opening of all time after shifting 968,000 copies – compared to his previous best of 684,000 for 'FutureSex/LoveSounds' in 2006.

He wrote: "Whoa... Speechless. Shocked. Numbers go up, numbers go down. I just hope this album makes your Summer... You already made mine #bestfansever."

He also teased something special to show his appreciation to all those who bought the record - after it claimed the number one spot in the UK and US.

"I'm gonna find a way to show my appreciation to you ladies and gents this week... Stay tuned. #finderskeepers," he tweeted. 

Justin will hit the road in the summer alongside Jay-Z for a joint headline tour – which includes dates at the Wireless Festival in London.

He is also expected to release a second volume of his new album later in the year and head out on his own solo tour.
