Justin Timberlake has entered Billboard's Hot 100 chart for the first time in five years with his new single 'Suit & Tie' which features Jay-Z.

The 'Friends With Benefits' actor premiered the comeback single on Sunday and it was instantly a hit with fans, soaring to the top of the iTunes chart in several countries including the US and UK, managing to knock off Taylor Swift's 'I Knew You Were Trouble.'

While Justin is currently at number three on the UK midweek chart, 'Suit & Tie' has entered the Billboard Hot 100 at number 84 making it his first entry onto the chart in five years when he released his last single 'Until The End of Time', his duet with Beyonce, which peaked at number 17.

Predictions earlier this week claimed that Justin's new track would shift between 300,000 and 350,000 units in its first week, and while 84 may seem like a low entry, the single has only been available to download for three days.

Justin announced earlier this week that he will be releasing a new album, his first since 2006's FutureSex/LoveSounds, later this year, with Timbaland expected to produce the entire album which will be titled, The 20/20 Experience.
