Rolling Stone Magazine reports Justin Timberlake has the top-selling album so far this year.

New numbers come from Nielson Sound-Scan.

The singer's "The 20-20 Experience" is the only album this year to sell more than two million copies.

Timberlake and the new rap duo Macklemore and Ryan Lewis top the list of best-selling recording artists at the mid-year point, according to Rolling Stone.

Macklemore and Ryan Lewis' album, "Thrift Shop" broke the record for most digital sales in the first six months of a calendar year, edging out last year's record of 5.5 million downloads set by Gotye.

Other artists with top-selling albums this year include Bruno Mars, Mumford and Sons, Blake Shelton and Imagine Dragons.
