Justin Timberlake is making his way back to Pop!
That’s right, a day after he teased fans with this tweet, Billboard have sent fans into a frenzy with reports of a new album from the ‘Cry Me A River’ singer.
Exciting details below…
“…and not just a song, but a full album produced by longtime collaborator Timbaland. Timberlake is believed to have around 20 new tracks recorded. A source familiar with the project confirms to Billboard that Timberlake is definitely releasing a new album more sooner than later.
Timberlake’s rep could not be reached for comment.
Timberlake’s last studio effort, the enduring “FutureSex/LoveSounds,” came out in 2006. It has been certified four-times platinum, marking domestic sales of over 4 million units.
Although Timberlake has focused much of his energy in recent years on movies (he will next be seen in the Coen brothers’ highly-anticipated Inside Llewyn Davis) and tech (he’s a key principal in the new Myspace), an insider says the former NSync star has been quietly and methodically preparing to release an album with almost no warning.
To wit: the 9 p.m. tweet that hinted at something transpiring just hours later. Within an hour, Justin Timberlake was the top trending topic on Twitter.”
News of his new album arrives after Pop sensation Beyonce revealed that she and collaborated with the star for her fifth studio effort, due out later on this year.
The ‘JT’ album will come seven years after the launch of his 2006 piece, ‘Future Love/Sex Sounds’, which spawned the singles ‘My Love‘, the dance anthem, ‘Sexy Back‘ and the fan favorite, ‘Losing My Way‘.
…and for the nostalgia?
