The critical and commercial misstep that was Justin Timberlake‘s 2018 album, the Country-tinged ‘Man of the Woods,’ has the 39-year-old trying to get out of the woods with music buyers – a position that’s undoubtedly led him to drive his musical endeavors back to basics.
Hot on the promo trail for the recently released ‘Trolls World Tour’ soundtrack (click here to stream it), Timberlake took to Zane Lowe last week to dish on his next solo LP and teased the effort by mentioning R&B/Hip-Hop producers Timbaland, Danja, and Hit-Boy are among the craftsmen he’s already teamed with for it.
As if that return to form is not enough for his fans to get excited about, word has it he may be working on a reunion with *NSYNC. Details inside:

In related news, Timberlake’s former bandmate, Lance Bass, sent fans into a frenzy when he announced he would be separately interviewing each member of *NSYNC on his wildly popular ‘The Daily Popcast with Lance Bass’ podcast series this week.
Kicking off Monday (March 16) with the group’s founding member, Chris Kirkpatrick, it’s being reported the ‘I Want You Back’ hitmakers are sharing their respective thoughts on the prospect of a reunion project and subsequent tour. The timing couldn’t be better as March 21 will bring with it the 20th anniversary of their blockbuster sophomore album, ‘No Strings Attached.’
