Justin Timberlake and Jay-Z's tour this summer has already outsold the rapper's previous tour with Kanye West by a whopping 5-1, Kim Kardashian's other half will be happy to hear!

Kanye recently ripped into the pair's new tour announcement, saying: “I got love for Hov, but I ain’t f*ckin’ with that ‘Suit & Tie," so we can't imagine he'll be too thrilled when he finds out that Justin Timberlake and Jay are outselling their previous gigs by a fair amount.

According to StubHub, the Jay-Z/JT 'Legends of the Summer' tour tickets sales in the first three weeks are beating the Jay-Z/Kanye 'Watch the Throne' tour during the same first three weeks on sale by an impressive 5 to 1.

And the site is also reporting that the number of fans visiting their website to check out the Legends of the Summer tour tickets is nearly three times the number that checked out Watch the Throne!

We're not surprised that the Cry Me A River superstar has managed to shift the tickets, as it was revealed recently that his new album The 20/20 Experience could shift a MILLION copies.

The LP, which includes the hits Suit & Tie and Mirrors, was originally expected to reach 800,000 sales in its first week, but experts now fancy its chances of breaking the seven-figure barrier.

Although it's not quite the fastest-seller in recent memory (Taylor Swift's Red sold 1.2 million in its first week of release back in October), it could still become the fastest-seller by a male artist for quite some time.

This is JT's first solo album since FutureSex/LoveSounds back in 2006, which also hit No1 on both sides of the Atlantic.

2002's Justified sold a total of 3.5 million copies in the US but only ever managed a weekly peak of No2.
