2017 were dark, dark days, my friends, but 2018 is here now, and it’s starting off right. After more than a decade of releasing mediocre af music, Justin Timberlake is back with some sexual gold.
J. Tim recently released a teaser for his new album “Man of the Woods” and I was like “Ok cool, this looks like it will probably be folksy or whatever”, but then he dropped the first single, “Filthy”, and I was like HOLD THE FUCKING PHONE! Because that shit was like SexyBack 2.0
If you haven’t heard Filthy yet, do yourself a favor and enjoy listening to it while also taking in its accompanying video where Justin plays a perverted Steve Jobs, which I am 100% here for:
Justin Timberlake has been releasing okay at best music for what seems like forever now, so much so that I actually forgot how talented he is. But when I first heard this song today, I remembered shit like “Cry Me a River”, “SexyBack”, and “FutureSexLoveSounds” and was like OH MY GOD! THAT’S RIGHT! JUSTIN TIMBERLAKE IS REALLY REALLY GOOD!
While I am legit shook, because the whole “Man of the Woods” preview did NOT have me emotionally prepared for this jam, I shouldn’t be all that surprised by this return to form since, shocker, Timberland co-wrote Filthy, and Timberland is legit behind all of J. Tim’s best music.
If Justin Timberlake’s new music is any indication of how 2018 is going to go (I for some reason think it is), then maybe, just maybe, unlike the entire 20/20 album he released, this year actually won’t suck so hard. In fact, it might be really sexy and great. Fingers crossed!
