He’s brought sexy back and shown off his suit and tie, and now Justin Timberlake just “Can’t Stop the Feeling.”
JT’s first new solo song in almost three years was released Thursday night on Apple’s iTunes. One thing’s for sure: It’s an instant Song of the Summer contender.
Timberlake shared the song’s title Wednesday and teased its release by merely tweeting “2 more days.” Leading up to the actual release, Timberlake leaked out tidbits of the track with a video starring some celeb friends — James Corden, Anna Kendrick, Kunal Nayyar, Gwen Stefani, Ronald Funches, and Icona Pop — all fellow cast members of DreamWorks’ upcoming animated feature Trolls.
When asked when he would release more new music, he told SiriusXM’s The Morning Mash Up, “When I’m making a record for myself, I don’t know, I feel like I have to take advantage of the fact that it’s done when I love every song.” He continued, “It’s done when you know it’s done. So, I don’t like to start making a record and go, ‘Oh, yeah I gotta get this out by this certain date,’ because who knows, you may write 12, 13, 14, 15 songs and then who knows, that 16th song that you didn’t get a chance to write may be like ‘the one.'”
