Justin Timberlake premiered ‘Can’t Stop the Feeling’ his first new song in three years, and a star-studded music video which is quickly going viral. You can see it right here and find out more about the infectious, upbeat dance track.
Yes, it’s been three years since the multi-hyphenate superstar has released new music, and it’s being greeted with much fanfare. Justin Timberlake’s last album was 2013’s chart-topping, ‘The 20/20 Experience’ which was released in two parts and produced such smash hits as ‘Suit & Tie’ and ‘Mirrors.’ And before that, it was seven long years, way back in 2006 that he released ‘FutureSex/LoveSounds.’
It’s not to say he’s been absent from the music world; he and rising country music star Chris Stapleton delivered a rousing performance of ‘I Can’t Drink You Away’ at the CMAs earlier this year. And in the years since that last sensational album, Justin Timberlake and wife Jessica Biel have become parents.
But this time around, the spotlight is on JT and his brand new song and thankfully we did not have to wait seven yeas this time! The music video features a bevy of A-listers, all of them co-stars in the upcoming animated movie from DreamWorks, ‘Trolls’ which is due out on November 4th.
Yes, he had quite a supporting cast in Gwen Stefani, James Corden, Anna Kendrick, Icona Pop, Ron Funches and Kunal Nayyar. It’s safe to say this catchy, dance track may very well become one of our summer hits. The summery montage and the cameos of this music video are, not surprisingly, going viral. Justin Timberlake dropped numerous hints and previews on Twitter.
As for the movie, it’s based on the Trolls dolls, who are finally getting their big screen debut and who were with us long before the days of Internet trolls and trolling. Justin Timberlake not only contributes this and other songs to the movie soundtrack, but is also among the cast of voice actors, portraying Branch.
As for a new album in the works from Justin Timberlake, there’s been no word on that, but as Rolling Stone reports, he’s dropping hints that his country duet with Chris Stapleton many not be his last foray into Nashville territory as he recently posted a photo of himself working alongside country superstars Little Big Town as well as another photo of himself with Pharrell Williams. Perhaps more musical surprises are in store.
