Overall, the album is easy to listen to. Justin has this smooth voice that can transport you to the crooners of yesteryear and yet he has these beats that keep you grounded to the here and now. Suit and Tie is easily one of the best singles on the radio right now. His second single, Mirrors, is also breaking up the monotony of back to back Rihanna songs on every station.
Justin has this sound that is different than what most artist are doing in Pop music right now, but his core song inspirations have remained true to the persona he has created for himself though his solo career. Each song is meant to woo this beautiful young thing that has the potential to be his one true love. Each song pounds this message into your head and I am sure that it will be a hit, but perhaps I expect more. Read More…
Justin Timberlake apparently just let his creative flag fly while in the studio because there were too many songs for just the one album. Rumor has it, he is splitting the tracks in half and having 20/20 volume two ready to drop in November of this year. Hmmm…. right in time for my birthday.
Jimmy Fallon broke the news on his music forum page after spending a week with Justin, Questlove and the roots. (Have you guys watched the barbershop quartet version of Sexyback? Its great.) Justin is trying to break out of the usual path of pandering to 18 year olds. He wants to make music that will appeal to the more mature generation as well as the ‘after 86 sect’. He told Jimmy,
“why do we put all of our power in the hands of 18 year olds….i wanted to make a joint that 40 year olds would love too. and by the time the video came out all the 86 after sect were aboard again.”
Part one of 20/20 is available tomorrow, so head to your local independently owned record store to purchase your copy, or scrounge up those iTunes gift cards!
I was reading some of the previous Cheap Date articles and realized that there was something missing. MUSIC! I have hand picked a few albums set to be released next month and made sure to include some of their hits to remind you why you love these bands, or perhaps turn you on to some new music. Enjoy the list after the Jump! Read More…
Alright, I may be stealing some of Natalia’s thunder with this post but there is something for me as well.
After a five-year break, Justin Timberlake is making more music and set to release his next album, The 20/20 Experience, next month. Released today for people to swoon over is the music video for the first single “Suit and Tie.” Not only does this mark Timberlake’s return to music with a great song, it also features the return of David Fincher (The Social Network, Se7en) to directing music videos.
Make your way past the jump to watch the video.
As previously reported, Justin Timberlake is bringing sexy back… again. (Sorry I had to…) This time he has Jay-z featured on his comeback. Enjoy Suit & Tie!
2013 is starting to remind me of the early 2000s. Why you ask?
Well today Beyonce announced that she is working on a new album with Destiny’s Child. It is a compilation album of their previous hits with a brand new track. This is the first time these ladies have worked together since 2004.
Justin Timberlake has teased us with a video of him returning to the studio. News is that in 3 days we will hear his signature voice back on the airwaves. This album is something I am looking forward to because he is back in the studio with Timbaland. That is a great duo ladies and gents.
Pop music is about to get interesting.
Destiny’s Child new single Nuclear after the jump!
