Sister act HAIM bested Justin Timberlake this week.

The trio's "Days Are Gone" album finally debuted at No. 1 in the U.K., dethroning Timberlake's "The 20/20 Experience -- 2 Of 2."

According to the Official Charts Company, Timberlake led album sales by 700, but HAIM gained momentum Thursday night (closing the sales gap by a mere 28). By Saturday night, the sisters came out victoriously with 2,100 sales.

HAIM's "Days Are Gone" includes the tracks "Don't Save Me," "The Wire" and "Falling" -- all of which are on the U.K. top 40. "The Wire" fell from No. 16 last week to No. 24, whereas JT's "Take Back The Night" jumped eight spots from 30 to 22.

The rock girl group consists of Alana, Danielle and Este Haim, as well as their drummer Dash Hutton.

In the United States, Timberlake's album was No. 1 and sold 325,000 copies.
