Fans really missed hearing Justin Timberlake's music. His single after almost 6 years "Suit & Tie" made a record-setting debut on Billboard's Pop Songs chart, which measures mainstream top 40 airplay. The song soared to No. 14, with the highest first-week plays total in the chart's 20-year history.
"Suit & Tie" earned a total of 6,045 plays in the January 14-20 tracking week, passing Lady Gaga's "Born This Way," which opened with 4,602 plays the week of February 26, 2011. It also soared that time to No. 14.
Timberlake's song is now the highest-debuting song by a male artist in the Pop Songs chart's archives, topping the No. 19 debut of Jon Secada's "If You Go" the week of May 14, 1994.
Among all acts, only Mariah Carey's "Dreamlover" launched at a higher rank (No. 12, August 14, 1993).
"Suit & Tie" debuted at No. 84 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart but with a full week of airplay and sales, the song could jump to the top 5 this week.
Let's find out if "Suit & Tie" can make that big jump to the top 5!
