Justin Timberlake's new single 'Suit & Tie' has gone to the top of the UK and US download charts.

Justin's comeback single, featuring Jay-Z, currently sits at number one on iTunes after just 24 hours.

After such a strong start, it looks likely that Justin will take the UK singles number one on Jameela Jamil's Official Chart Show on BBC Radio 1.

Over in America, 'Suit & Tie' might just break download sales records. Industry insiders expect the single to sell over 400,000 copies in its first seven days.

It'll have to beat Taylor Swift's angry break-up song to do it: 'I Knew You Were Trouble' sold 416,000 units in its first week.

Justin's 'SexyBack' managed to sell 250,000 downloads in seven days back in September 2006, which gave second album 'FutureSex/LoveSounds' a boost up the album charts.
