Justin Timberlake's Official Top 20 biggest songs
15 May 2016
By Justin Myers

Yep, it's just Justin – he's back! After a couple of years away from the Top 40, JT is bringing sexy back with Can't Stop The Feeling, from the movie Trolls.

It's his 18th Top 10 (!) and his first since 2013, so what better way to celebrate Justin's triumphant return than have a good old poke through the archives, crunch some numbers and reveal his biggest songs?

The Top 5
Counting sales and streams, Justin's Top 5 looks a little something like this:

Mirrors was a big comeback for Justin when it hit Number 1 in 2013. It was his first chart-topper in almost five years and paved the way for his first album for SEVEN years – The 20/20 Experience Part 1.

Mirrors ruled the top spot for three weeks and has a stellar combined chart sales tally of 890,000, putting it way out in front of his other hits.

From his most recent chart-topper to his very first, way back in 2006. SexyBack was another career-defining moment for JT, shifting away from the poppy R&B of debut album Justified and homing in on a sharper, more electronic sound. Despite distorted vocals and barely making a cameo himself on his own chorus – leaving the bulk of the work to his old pal Timbaland – SexyBack became a signature track for Justin and went straight in at the top, with over 610,000 chart sales to its name.

Justin is famed for his all-star collaborations, and up in third is his possibly his starriest of them all. Justin teamed up with Madonna for 4 Minutes, the lead single from her 2008 album Hard Candy. It was a winning combination – the track spent 4 weeks at Number 1, which is Justin's longest run at the top, and boasts over 530,000 combined sales.

Justin's biggest song from his 2003 debut album is Cry Me A River, the song that got everybody talking. Fresh form his breakup with Britney Spears, Justin played on public interest by casting a woman who had more than a passing resemblance to his ex in the video. Match that with the song's theme of infidelity and you've got tabloid gold, basically – not to mention chart gold! Cry Me A River got no further than Number 2 – kept off the top by tATu's All The Things She Said – but has over 467,000 chart sales under its belt.

Rounding off our Top 5 is another megastar collaboration, this time with hip-hop legend Jay Z. Holy Grail was JT's last Top 10 hit before Can't Stop The Feeling, reaching Number 7 in 2013. Its chart sales tally stands at 430,000.

Other notable entries
Ciara collabo Love Sex & Magic just makes Justin's Top 10 big ones, nudging out his solo debut Like I Love You (Number 2 in 2002) and his 2007 Number 1 with Timbaland, Give It To Me.

It may not have made the Top 10, but Rihanna teamup Rehab – try saying that adter a few vodka and tonics – still comes in 17th, with Senorita, the only single from Justified to miss the Top 10, right behind it.

We don't reckon it'll be long before his new hit Can't Stop The Feeling will be shaking up this Top 20 either – it's currently sitting at 23.

Kind of surprised that Take Back the Night hasn't sold enough for Top 20, considering it had a couple of stints in the Top 40.

I didn't realise OOC doesn't credit Justin on Love Never Felt So Good. I find them a bit ridiculous in regards to how they treat featured acts on single versions, what with their refusal to credit Sean Paul for Cheap Thrills and Hair. drama.gif

Senorita holding up well considering it's a mere Top 15 hit from 2003!

A shame to see the likes of Like I Love You, Rock Your Body and My Love ( wub.gif ) outside of his Top 10.

Didn't realise that Ayo Technology was relatively more successful than Give It To Me in 2007!

Similarly, it's a shame he is not credited on Where Is The Love too

Also if Can't Stop The Feeling is 23 with sales of 70k, I assume Take Back The Night is 21, TKO is 22.

Because it's a well known and popular song that people want to download?

Surprised Holy grail is so high!

How is he not credited on 'Where is the love', didn't he also co-write it?

Mirrors is easily his best song and deserves the no1 slot, hopefully it will make a million at some point.

He was way more famous than TBEP at the time - they wanted to avoid overexposure.

'Cry Me A River' should have sold way more than that, although I know that's when sales were generally at their lowest. I'm also as shocked as others at how low 'Rock Your Body' is on this list, and 'Like I Love You' feels like it should be higher too.

I always thought "Senorita" was a top 10 hit until the other day, shocking that "Rehab" sold more but it was released during a very low sales period (2002/03)

Aren't 'Cry Me A River' and 'SexyBack' big trickle sellers? They get good boosts whenever they're made 59p etc.. And I think they're on a lot of "throwback" playlists on Spotify etc..

Really hope 'Can't Stop the Feeling' can get top 10!

As I previously mentioned, the OCC doesn't credit Justin Timberlake on this track, so they've not included it in this list.
