With any Justin Timberlake song, I have to take some time to let it all calm down within me before I can make a non biased post. This man is just king.
Before I start, I am not sure if this track is for the movie only, or if it is a single off his next album which is due out later this year. JT has worked with Pharrell on this track, and you can easily see that as it sounds like “Happy” 2.0. That isn’t the worst thing in the world, because “Happy” did grow on me quite a bit, and ended up smashing the charts.
I was hoping for him to come a little harder with the track, but I can’t complain because I didn’t have to wait 6 years for new music. All of that being said, this track is absolutely perfect for the beginning of summer and it will definitely smash the charts, because it is easily a hit for the airwaves.
This is just the beginning of the Justin Timberlake era, and I’m so ready for all of it. Take a listen below!
This video makes me so happy.
Video treatment has been given to a song that has grown on me quite a bit since it’s release, ‘Love Never Felt So Good’. The video is basically just a fun tribute to the King, in which a bunch of dancers are singing MJ’s part, while JT comes in during his verse and channels a little MJ. Nothing big to it, just a tribute to show us how much we need The King back. I still have yet to hear the entire Xscape album, but from what I have heard, it isn’t half bad at all.
I am indifferent on the posthumous album of the King, on one hand I feel like it never hurts to hear MJ’s voice, but on the other hand I feel like The King should have a hand in releasing his own material because we all know it would have been perfect.
That being said, I had to give it a listen when I heard that the one and only Justin Timberlake was featured on it. I have to say, while it is nothing even close to what either one of these guys can do on their own, it seems like they took the simple approach and kept it very old school. I can’t say this will be on repeat or it will be remembered in 10 years time like either of their solo material, but it’s good.
I am nervous to hear the rest of the album, but from the 2 tracks I have heard, I hate to admit it, are decent.
YES YES YES
With the very recent addition to stream Pharrells upcoming album on itunes, G I R L, we see the release of a highly anticipated track off the album featuring king JT. I have been waiting for Pharrell to drop new music for a while and 2013 was his year, and I don’t see him slowing down with the release of this album. This track has a definite Jackson 5 feel to it, and its absolutely fantastic. Like everything Pharrell has put out recently, it has a very feel good vibe to it, and just puts you in a better mood.
I can’t wait to get into the other tracks, after the repeat button breaks on this youtube video.
Also those of you itunes people, here is the link to stream the entire album—–> G I R L
Following the huge success of JT’s comeback album, next month sees the release of a follow up, The 20/20 Experience part 2 of 2. JT can honestly do no wrong, and with his first single off the album ‘Take Back The Night’, doing wonders on the chart, while he still has heavy airplay with both ‘Suit & Tie’, and ‘Mirrors’, this album will just add to the success. Today JT graced us with the tracklist for his next album due out next month, and for me, this is the hype I need to get excited for this next album.
His previous album is still on heavy rotation, but anyway, check out the tracklist after the jump!
The king, Justin Timberlake, releases visuals for his first single from his upcoming album, The 20/20 Experience Part 2. ‘Take Back The Night’ has the sound of old school Jackson 5, and yet keeps it current to fit in with the top 40. Justin Timberlake can do no wrong in my books, and I am just as excited for part 2 of his album as I was about the 1st half.
Jay-Z’s much anticipated album Magna Carta Holy Grail just leaked online, followed by this smash of a track ‘Holy Grail’ featuring the king Justin Timberlake. Now I have never been a huge fan of Jay-Z so I came here for the Justin Timberlake feature, and like always, never disappoints. I wasn’t too impressed with Jay’s verses, they just seemed to be there, with all the hype behind this album, it did nothing for me. I call this track a smash because of JT, again that could be biased, but I think without him this track would have fallen flat.
