Justin Timberlake's 'Suit And Tie': Singer's Return May Be His Biggest Single Yet

01/16/2013 10:11 am ET

With the release of his new single, Justin Timberlake is on his "suit and tie s---" and if song sales are any indication, all of his fans are too.

Billboard reports that "Suit & Tie" is on pace to sell between 330,000 and 350,000 downloads by Jan. 20. This total would give Timberlake the best sales week he has ever had for a song, beating out 2006's "SexyBack," which sold 250,000 in its first week.

The early success of the single prompted Timberlake to tweet his gratitude to his fans.

"Suit & Tie" is Timberlake's much-hyped return to music, a single off of his upcoming album, "The 20/20 Experience." The album will be his first since 2006's "FutureSex/LoveSounds."

While fans had been hoping for new music from Timberlake for months, the singer made no mention of a new album until last week, when he posted a countdown clock and a video of himself saying "I'm ready" on his website.

"The 20/20 Experience" is due out this year.
