It’s safe to say P!nk and Justin Timberlake have earned their spots as two of modern Pop’s leading acts.
The powerful pair have sold over 45 million records each over the span of their solo careers. And now, that number will increase as they lock-in 2017 for their perspective album releases.

After the gigantic success of 2016’s ‘Just Like Fire,‘ P!nk seemed poised to issue an LP in the latter part of last year. But the project was quietly put on the back burner after the star announced that she was expecting her second child – a month before giving birth.
Her last album, 2012’s ‘The Truth About Love,‘ serves as the second biggest record of her career, selling over 7 million copies. So it’s safe to say the aforementioned has high expectations.
The singer’s RCA/Sony label-mate JT is also brewing fresh material.
Following his Academy Award nominated single ‘Can’t Stop the Feeling,’ Timberlake has been hard at work in studio with past collaborators Pharrell and Timberland trying to perfect his spin on the southern sound.
In a recent interview with THR, he says of the project:
“It sounds more like where I’ve come from than any other music I’ve ever made. It’s Memphis. It’s Southern American music. But I want to make it sound modern — at least that’s the idea right now.”
Both albums sound promising. It’ll be interesting to see when they drop and who they’ll be up against. Not to mention, Timberlake’s new southern sound – which itself sounds like a marked departure from the music he’s been delivering over the decades.
