Justin Timberlake’s ‘Can’t Stop The Feeling!’ Rockets to No. 1 on Hot 100


Justin Timberlake’s soundtrack song for the upcoming Trolls movie is now a No. 1 single on the Hot 100 chart. “Can’t Stop The Feeling!,” released on May 6, zooms to No. 1 on the Hot 100 chart in its first week with 379,000 downloads sold, according to Billboard and Nielsen Music.

That number represents Timberlake’s best sales week ever (!) and the biggest single sales week of the year. Timberlake’s 20/20 Experience double album yielded three Top 10 hits in 2013, but no No. 1 singles.

“Can’t Stop The Feeling!,” which Timberlake performed at Eurovision over the weekend, bumps Drake’s “One Dance,” featuring Wizkid and Kyla, from the No. 1 spot after one week. The song, which became Drake’s first No. 1 as a lead artist last week, slips one spot to No. 2.

Amazingly, “Can’t Stop The Feeling!” comes from a film, Trolls, that isn’t out until November 4. Timberlake voices the troll Branch in the DreamWorks animated film.
