Marsha Ambrosius Shocks Fans With Justin Timberlake “Ghost Singer” Revelation

Published: Friday 3rd Apr 2020 by David

Marsha Ambrosius has stunned fans with a revelation not even Miss Cleo could have seen coming.

Full story below…

In a tweet published recently, the Floetry singer/songwriter revealed that she, and not Justin Timberlake, was behind iconic vocal performance that sits at the end of his breakout solo hit ‘Cry Me a River.’

The vocalist was credited as a backing vocalist but news that JT wasn’t the voice behind one of his most iconic vocal performances sent shockwaves through Twitter and gave a fresh pair of wheels to the anti-JT train powered by his supposed use and abuse of Pop royals Britney Spears and Janet Jackson.

See below…

 


 

Marsha isn’t the first black artist whose contributions to Pop music flew under the general public’s radar.

Press play…

  2. Pat April 3, 2020

    Wow. Same w butterflies tho. I just new music was killing those head voice rubs at the end but it’s her

    • chileplease April 3, 2020

      Michael is singing most of the high notes in that song. Just listen to the second verse. Secondly, Marsha is credited as a background singer and writer on the song. Let’s not equate the two..mmmkay.

    • YAH April 3, 2020

      No, it’s not the same. MJ came out and said several times that she sang on that song. Stop spreading lies. Again, MICHAEL JACKSON SAID IN SEVERAL INTERVIEWS THAT MARSHA SANG ON THAT SONG

  3. Clarks0o0ñ April 3, 2020

    White man stealing a black woman’s voice and taking credit for it, is this new? NO

    They did this to Martha wash (one half of the weather girls) several times in the past

    • Misty Knight April 3, 2020

      You’re right and wrong. C+C Music Factory was all black (and one latino), including producer/songwriter David Cole. White people didn’t screw over Martha Wash; black people did. It was Black Box’s three white guys that hired a beautiful black model to lip-synch the vocals of Martha and Loleatta Holloway on the videos and TV performances of such hits such as Everybody, Everybody, Strike it Up and Ride on Time.

  4. Ughhh April 3, 2020

    What’s new?!?! Justin steals from black culture but doesn’t support Black Lives Matter. Justin uses woman (mainly black woman) for personal and professional gain and then pays them dust.

    What’s new?!?

    • Clarks0o0ñ April 3, 2020

      Ur still pained cause I dragged u and dua lipa in previous articles

      ???

      A stupid clown
      ?

      • Ughhh April 3, 2020

        Lol dragged me? When? I don’t even care about Dua ???

        Wrong person stupid ???

        So triggered to argue you can’t even keep up with who you’re arguing with. Take a nap. You’re tired

  5. Liam April 3, 2020

    Lol I knew some of the vocals weren’t is I mean if you knew him from *NSYNC days he is vocally challenged and very limited as a singer…but he knows how to build harmonies with his weak vocals so I found certain vocals questionable on his debut album which was pretty good nonetheless lol. Why is she bringing this up now tho?

    • Alex August 12, 2020

      So true. LOL JC was the vocal talent in *NSYNC. I didn’t even like their music, and I know that. Although, Joey proved on The Masked Singer that he can sing very well. He should have been allowed to sing more in the group. Justin would simply come on the song and whine, after JC was finished doing all the heavy lifting vocally (belting, etc.). The only reason Justin became the face of *NSYNC is because he was dating Britney.

      Justin has always been limited vocally, and he still is. His voice really hasn’t developed much since the *NSYNC days or the beginning of his solo career. He’s noted for his falsetto, but I’ve never understood that since it’s really nothing special. I’ve heard much better falsettos from MJ, Bryan McKnight, Usher, etc. That being said, I think Justin knows how to use his voice better than JC. Unfortunately, Justin got the career JC deserved. Justin picked better songs and producers, plus Jive 100% backed him at the solo star from *NSYNC. They basically sabotaged JC and screwed him over.

  6. Clarks0o0ñ April 3, 2020

    “Marsha isn’t the first African-American vocalist whose contributions to Pop music flew under the radar.”

    Marsha ambrosius is not African American, she is english
    She is from the UK, liverpool to be precise.

    TGJ get ur shìt together.

    • KLamar1 April 3, 2020

      Where does it say African American?

      • Ughhh April 3, 2020

        @KLamar Ignore her, she can’t read. Lmfao

      • Clarks0o0ñ April 3, 2020

        TGJ has edited it.
        It previously stated African America.

  7. KLamar1 April 3, 2020

    For anyone who thinks this is ok ask yourself this. If he wasn’t trying to pass her voice off as his own why didn’t he make her an official feature or EVER acknowledge her. I used to love this guy but now I see that he and his people were intentionally stealing from black culture to prop him up. He’s done.

    • 1988 April 3, 2020

      You are not GOD. Nor have the authority to end anyone’s career. You can individually not buy his albums but when he sold out Madison Square Garden twice just this last era…see…that’s where your power STOPS! LMFAOROALLLONTHEUTHAFUCKINFLO;p

  8. Tyty April 3, 2020

    ?? white people really being exposed for the thieves and liars they are. I love social media. Don’t take our foot of their necks they shall be exposed as the talentless demons they are who literally can only survive like parasites stealing from black culture at every turn.

    • Bruno Martian April 3, 2020

      Speak on it. They only got away with it before because the gp didn’t have a voice. Social media changed all that fr. ?

    • SLH April 3, 2020

      Yeah something that was already known if you ever bothered to read the liner notes…

  9. Clarks0o0ñ April 3, 2020

    TGJ after I mentioned Martha wash in my first comment, u decided to add martha wash in the article. ???

    • ??? April 3, 2020

      lmaoooo too bad you cant give flopmila’s career some help lmfaoooooooooooo

    • KLamar1 April 3, 2020

      Calm
      Down. They dedicated a post to her on facebook months ago.

  10. Beyonce Knows April 3, 2020

    Marsha got paid I’m sure. Why did she wait until now to say something?

    • 1988 April 3, 2020

      Because she just heard the song and wondered why she didn’t write such a classic herself? Justin wrote it BISH, sang it BISH and arranged it BISH. 🙂 Jealousy…artistic jealousy is a real thing. That is why you hear copycats….lol. She is pretending to be the only background vocalist on Cry Me A River. BISH BYE! I listed the facts below.

      Like I said further down, BISH take your slice and leave with it wrapped in foil. 🙂 You will not eat this whole cake by yourself. Not this time! Not today!! LOL

      I know you want to…..but not today!!! LOL

    • Fancy BISH April 3, 2020

      The damage is done so I guess I’ll be leaving ? FCK UGLY ASSS JUSTIN!

  11. chileplease April 3, 2020

    Ya’ll doing too much. Acting like she singing the whole damn song.

  12. Clarks0o0ñ April 3, 2020

    Marsha ambrosuis is suppose to be as big as adele right now, I dont understand what happened to her career

    Faraway was a great song with a strong music video with a message especially for back then in 2011 were artistes were still afraid of supporting gays and spreading awareness about suicide

    I blame the black community.
    Always letting talented black women flop instead they hype and stan people like normani who cant sing for shìt, who cant write, etc
    ????

  13. Ropeburn April 3, 2020

    Now I can’t stand Justin, and I believe Marsha should have won the Grammy for Late Nights Early Mornings, but THIS AIN’T IT! What she did on the track wass the definition of a BACKGROUND vocal. And she was given proper credit. Justin might be many things but he is NOT JLO!

    • Bruno Martian April 3, 2020

      The problem
      Is that it’s the latest in a long line of things he’s done. This isn’t an isolated event. He has a habit of stealing from black artists and using what he steals to seem edgy and artistic. His legacy is literally in tatters.

    • Clarks0o0ñ April 3, 2020

      He won best male pop vocal performance for this song when some parts are not his vocals

      Can u see the fraud

      • SLH April 3, 2020

        Every singer has background singers. This is not fraud.

  14. my name April 3, 2020

    marsha is one the rudest celebrities i’ve ever met. she can go somewhere with this cry me a river b*******. she wants recondition for her work but treats others like crap. i’ll never forget my experiences with her shopping in my store in philadelphia so many years ago. rude rude rude rude rude lady.

    • my name April 3, 2020

      *recognition*

    • just sayin April 3, 2020

      I would see Marsha walking around Center City in Philly all the time!! She would look me square in my eyes like I was supposed to acknowledge her and I paid her dust every time. lol

      • Chileplease April 3, 2020

        Maybe she’s staring at you because you’re staring at her…

    • Ken tucky April 5, 2020

      Did she fcuk you? What did she do?

  15. 1988 April 3, 2020

    First of all, the song is iconic and written by JUSTIN TIMBERLAKE, SCOTT STORCH AND TIMBALAND. Not her, anyone on twitter..lol. And rest in peace sweet KING but Michael Jackson had nothing to do with Cry Me A River. Jesus people. Second of all, her credit is there and she is an amazing vocalist. Third of all, I have seen Justin perform this song and hit those last notes perfectly. Fourth, how is this an issue now? What in the Quarantine is going on exactly? Monies? ;p

    And Justin Timberlake has done background vocal work for many artists…even Beyonce! But he also co-wrote the song. The song is called Partition. And his credits don’t stop there. He could of done his own backgrounds but this is the thanks he gets Marsha?? lol

    And then ghetto Grapejuice had the nerve…to mention Janet Jackson yet again. Listen, her BIG NIPPLE being exposed was not his idea. All Janet’s team. Insiders know it was all Janet’s team and that is why he was able to keep returning to the Super Bowl. He signed something for Janet (non-disclosure agreement) and one day the truth will really come out about that! 🙂 Jermaine Dupri, recently has showed love to Justin Timberlake…..has Justin’s picture hanging up in his personal recording studio…..and he dated Janet directly after the Super Bowl. So obviously even Jermaine knows the truth. ;p The truth will always be revealed!

    Justin Timberlake quote: “No, sir. That’s confidential,’’ he replied. “That’s really confidential. How do I say that? I signed the papers with Mrs. Jackson to not release anything at all.’’

    One day……SOPHIA COMIN’ HOME WITH THE TRUTH…LMAO

    • SLH April 3, 2020

      Janet and JD were already dating before the Super Bowl. And yes it was her idea. She has admitted to it. No one will acknowledge this because no one wants to hold Janet accountable in any way, even though it was her show and she had final say

    • Paulo April 3, 2020

      ” Second of all, her credit is there and she is an amazing vocalist” if we’re being honest… she sounds crappy singing the chorus on this lil snippet she posted to be messy. but the fact she is being messy does not take away from the fact she is right! she deserves credit for her work

    • Now Control This! April 4, 2020

      Stop spreading FALSE NEWS. whether there’s a nondisclousure agreement or not – that is standard of a star of her massive stature.

      Also people have a problem with the DOUBLE STANDARD that was shown to Justin as WHITE MALE and how Janet was treated as a BLACK FEMALE.

      Justin dug his grave and also has admitted several times he only got 10% of the blame and regrets not standing by Janet.

  16. Only Facts April 3, 2020

    Well s***. Damn Marsha. This is the final nail for Justin in my eyes. He’s completely done in my book. Culture vulture. Always using women….especially women of color.

    • 1988 April 3, 2020

      You are a troll. But here are the facts:

      Songwriting – Justin Timberlake, Timothy Mosley, Scott Storch
      Production – Timbaland
      Recording – Senator Jimmy D
      Assistant engineer – Carlos “Storm” Martinez
      Mixing – Jimmy Douglass, Timbaland
      Mixing assistant – “Steamy”
      String arrangement and conducting – Larry Gold
      Background vocals – Justin Timberlake, Timbaland, Marsha Ambrosius, Tyrone Tribbett, Greater Anointing
      Clavinet – Scott Storch
      Guitar – Bill Pettaway
      Vocal arrangement – Justin Timberlake *HELLO* LMAO

      It’s funny she failed to mention not only Justin Timberlake….but Tyrone Tribbett, Timbaland and Greater Anointing (the choir who blessed that chant) who were in the back with her….lol. She is trying to eat the whole cake but BISHH take your slice and leave with it wrapped in foil. 🙂

  17. Only Facts April 3, 2020

    Side note: Marsha is talented AF. Her first album is truly a masterpiece.

  18. Keith April 3, 2020

    I’ve always thought Marsha was an underrated talent. MORE IMPORTANTLY…hopefully black artists will begin to question working with Justin UNLESS they have complete control over whatever the project is. This is just ridiculous. Not going to question Marsha’s timing. Not one bit. Perhaps the “Justin Timberlake Review” will be over soon enough.

    Also, I met Marsha last summer in Vegas and she was fairly nice. She was waiting for an opportunity to say kind words to Ms. Jackson…

  19. 1988 April 3, 2020

    It wouldn’t be a modern solo male business model (post-80’s) without Justin Timberlake’s Justified. It was group, after group, after group. And more groups. Solo males (especially white ones) were few and far between in the 90’s……until JT went solo (from yet another group…lol) and sold 10 million REAL ALBUMS (ZERO SPS…lol) off Justified. 🙂

    Took home Justified, listened…studied shiiit….now they on some money shiiit, successful out the blue. 🙂

    • Tino April 3, 2020

      LMAO AT THOSE WHITE LIES. Usher was the first sole male R&B/Pop artist with major success post MJ and Prince not fraud culture vulture Justin. Usher 1997 My Way album sold 6 million, had a Billboard Hot 100 #1 song with Nice and slow, with My way and You make me wanna both going number 2 on the Hot 100. Usher won Billboard artist of the year 1998. Usher 2001 album 8701 sold 8 million, had two Billboard Hot 100 #1’s with U remind me and U got it bad, with U don’t have to call going number 3 on the Hot 100. Usher won two Grammys and Billboard Hot 100 artist of the year. ALL BEFORE JUSTIN FRAUD ASS WENT SOLO AND MOLDED HIS CAREER OFF USHER’S.

      • Tino April 3, 2020

        Billboard artist of the year in 1998. A Grammy for U remind me in 2002. Billboard Hot 100 artist of the year in 2002. Another Grammy for U don’t have to call in 2003. But you said it wouldn’t be a modern solo male business without Justin?? LMAO AND SMMFH

      • 1988 April 3, 2020

        I’m talking about the entire business plan…..you aren’t quite understanding the BLUEPRINT laid by Justin Timberlake. It would take 10 pages of a comment to list. Many of these solo male artists will acknowledge it themselves and many already have. Yes, Usher is influential….but Justified was a game changer in marketing.

    • Tino April 3, 2020

      Wasn’t no damn BLUEPRINT and business plan, his business plan was his skin color and white privilege to use black culture. Justified wasn’t anything that Michael Jackson, Prince, Bobby Brown and Usher hadn’t already done. It was just a white guy with blonde hair and blue eyes doing it.You acting like Justified was the biggest solo album of the decade when that was Usher’s Confessions. Now that was the game changer that influenced the rest of the decade.

    • Fancy BISH April 3, 2020

      Nobody believes those lies! ? Justin took from Usher and Michael Jackson! Took Usher’s swag and took tracks written for MJ! Justified is wack, flavorless, seasonless, gentrified R&B for white artists with no real talent to model themselves after! FACTS! Fck Justin’s hillbilly, country ass! Man Of The Flop! Thank you Tino for saying the TRUTH! ✅ ? Nobody cares about Memphis’ own, Justin country ass, overrated Timberfake! ?

  20. Morgan April 3, 2020

    ..and Aaliyah was nominated for Best R&B Female Vocal Performance for “Rock the Boat” when most of that song is sung by background vocalists. Marsha sang the last few bars on the song. She was credited as a background vocalists. It is a solo performance besides the background vocals. This doesn’t make sense. It’s not a feature. She didn’t solely sing the chorus. She did her part. Beyonce wasn’t given a feature credit on her Frank Ocean songs, Mariah wasn’t given a feature credit for her backing vocals on Babyface (and she was fully featured on the adlibs and chorus) and Allure songs. I’m no Justin fan but she reaching for no reason.

    • 1988 April 3, 2020

      Thank you. 🙂 You have a brain unlike some on here. lol

    • Yo Momma Call Me Daddy April 4, 2020

      how dare this basic ass BICH come after baby girl without an ounce of fkn fact. MOTHA FUKA, Aaliyah’s background vocals were always hers boo. LAYERS OF HER MANY RANGES ON TOP OF LAYERS HUNTY. you tired ass millennials think yall know everything that came before yall but yall don’t know a damn thing

    • SU.P.E.R.S.T.A.R.!. April 4, 2020

      @Morgan – I agree.

  21. Paulo April 3, 2020

    wow. they edited the hell out of her tone to make it sound like Justin’s falsetto. I don’t think this entitles her to being a featured artist but the discussion regarding the Grammys is so relevant. she should have won one too as a background vocalist regardless

    • SLH April 4, 2020

      Background vocalists don’t win Grammys. They didn’t edit anything. There’s two layers in vocal arrangements and they stack them over each other to create harmonies.

  22. #TheTruth April 3, 2020

    I don’t give a damn about Justin.
    But she’s credited as a background singer, she got her credits.
    What was she expecting, a featuring title for singing those « cry me » at the end of the song ?

    People are quick to use the black woman card because of the Janet scandal.
    This has got nothing to do with the woman’s skin color.
    Prime example of sh!tty comments from social medias with people trying to sound righteous when they are just sheep talking non sense.

    There’s a whole bunch of songs out there who won grammys during decades with back up singers credited as such. They aren’t going to get up on that stage to collect the trophy.

    That’s a cyclone in a cup of water. Get over it.

  23. Fancy BISH April 3, 2020

    Marsha brewing big POTS of tea ? Nobody likes his ugly assss! Trolls Flop Tour debuted at #110 ?

  24. 1988 April 3, 2020

    Nobody cares about any FAT BISHES on Grapejuice that represent ugly ass Iggy Azalea!!!! The UGLY BISH!!!!!

  25. 1988 April 3, 2020

    Go to all these wikipedia and see who’s name you see as the influence:

    Justin Bieber’s Boyfriend
    Ed Sheeran’s Sing – “I love Justified and FutureSex/LoveSounds, so I took inspiration from those…”
    Nick Jonas Chains
    Joe Jonas first album…..

    I have more….get to reading…..lol…..

  30. Yo Momma Call Me Daddy April 4, 2020

    I believe it 100%… Just like i know for a fact that JANET fkn JACKSON was did the background vocals for Justin’s original “Rock Your Body” and was even creditted as such in the original album pamphlet. I KNOW THIS CUZ I USED TO READ ALL THEM MOTHAFKN PAMPHLETS IN ALL OF MY ALBUM PURCHASES.

    • SLH April 4, 2020

      No Janet Jackson is on the song “And She Said Take Me Now”.

  31. 1988 April 4, 2020

    I’m always right about everything. Woke up loved, blessed…and I look better than any BISH. ;p Justin will always get REAL love. 🙂
