On the brink of releasing his third album, his first in six years – Vulture reported that Questlove just came out stating that Justin Timberlake will already have a follow-up to The 20/20 Experience this November 2013. The music enthusiast posted on the Okayplayer boards about the new album stated “spoiler alert. 20/20 Vol 2 comes out in nov. (10 songs now…..10 songs later= 20 vision).” So when the popstar first announced his new album and started hashtagging “#JT2013” he wasn’t kidding.
In addition to spilling the beans, the musicologist also praised Justin Timberlake’s brand new album:
i admire the balls it took to make this record. cause he coulda easily urshurd his work in and made diplo his teddy riley to 20/20’s dangerous instead of sticking with timb’s Quincy.
i like throwback Timb. (he played me songs out of order and off both records so i don’t know what made the final cut) so i was shocked he wasn’t 4 on the flooring it like the timb of 2005 was doing. like these joints were straight up missy/magoo timb and justin said he wanted timb to “get back in his real zone” even if it meant alienating the tweens born after 86 who never ever heard of the sly slick and wicked
i mean suit and tie is the MOST UNLIKELY james brown production reference
but of course unless you got a master degree in soul-ology this won’t mean shit to you.
And true enough, some of us “older kids” “get” the album much more so than the younger tweens of this generation. And for reference, check out the two music videos below:
