On Friday, one the biggest pop stars of my generation, Justin Timberlake, dropped “Filthy” from his highly anticipated upcoming album, “Man of the Woods,” set for a Feb. 2 release.
The 36-year-old performer has made it clear that this album will be different, explaining in a video trailer for his upcoming tour, “The outdoors is the inspiration for a lot of these songs. That’s the main idea.”
So, have you listened?
Not quite the “outdoor” experience I was expecting. Well, I’m not sure exactly what I was expecting, but this wasn’t it.
It’s good, though, and it sounds pretty similar to the better tracks from 2013’s “20/20 Experience.” It’s got a good groove, it’s catchy and it has the signature saucy style we’ve come to expect from the entertainer.
It’ll be interesting to see what the other three singles set to be released before album drops will sound like.
This all had me thinking, as a unapologetic fan, what are my favorite JT songs? Thankfully for all of you, I’ve decided to share them with the entire world. (Sorry, NSYNC lovers, we’re talking strictly solo material here.)
