Fans had only three days to process Justin Timberlake's return to music before he dropped his first new single, the svelte but rambling "Suit & Tie." The last-minute surprise didn't seem to hinder sales, however -- Billboard estimates the song will come out of the first-week gate with sales of 330,000 to 350,000 units. The song, currently available as an iTunes exclusive, previews Timberlake's forthcoming third solo album, "The 20/20 Experience." It's Timberlake's first new music since 2006's chart topper "FutureSex/LoveSounds." Early estimates suggest that "Suit & Tie" could join a rare field of recent pop singles topping the 300,000 mark -- but it still looks to fall far short of 2012's biggest songs.
