Justin Timberlake

According to a recent post by Questlove on Okplayer’s message board, Justin Timberlake has a new album out this November. Yesterday, Questlove posted on the board responding to the New York Times’ review of Timberlake’s The 20/20 Experience. Questlove — who spent all of last week performing with Timberlake on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon — called The 20/20 Experience “OVERLY ambitious. like a LOT of ideas crammed into one,” and continued: “spoiler alert. 20/20 Vol 2 comes out in nov. (10 songs now…..10 songs later= 20 vision)”. Read Questlove’s full post from the Okplayer message board, below.

its constructive criticism

i will say the album is OVERLY ambitious. like a LOT of ideas crammed into one.

spoiler alert. 20/20 Vol 2 comes out in nov. (10 songs now…..10 songs later= 20 vision)

i admire the balls it took to make this record. cause he coulda easily urshurd his work in and made diplo his teddy riley to 20/20′s dangerous instead of sticking with timb’s Quincy.

feel me?

i like throwback Timb. (he played me songs out of order and off both records so i don’t know what made the final cut) so i was shocked he wasn’t 4 on the flooring it like the timb of 2005 was doing. like these joints were straight up missy/magoo timb and justin said he wanted timb to “get back in his real zone” even if it meant alienating the tweens born after 86 who never ever heard of the sly slick and wicked

i mean suit and tie is the MOST UNLIKELY james brown production reference

but of course unless you got a master degree in soul-ology this won’t mean shit to you.

and i told him my assistant zarah (born in 88) was frowning like “i don’t like this song”

and is he cool with the fact that only 35 year old people who love their soul in 95 bpm zone will “get” this song.

and he was like “why do we put all of our power in the hands of 18 year olds….i wanted to make a joint that 40 year olds would love too”

and by the time the video came out all the 86 after sect were aboard again.

(i agree the only thing i don’t like about suit and tie is jay’s beat switch up…..its cute….but its a pander move—if you gonna go 40…..go 40/40 with it”

anywho….i love the songs, but was worried on how he will cut the prime rib to feed to toothless babies.

ballsy move however.

i applaud ballsy moves

  1. Not sure i understand the no list at the bottom…

    • From what I can tell based on a quick search, the NO! List refers to artists whose songs the Roots cannot play on Jimmy Fallon’s show due to copyright issues. There is a tweet he sent out a while back about practicing a Radiohead song and then having to put it on the “no list.”

  2. The King Of Limbs pt 2, redux.

  3. file under: “who cares”

  4. did ?uest just take a pot shot at Usher?

  5. Interesting Stereogum’s swerve on this bit of news as opposed to Pitchfork’s. You can tell who likes the album (thus excited for more material) versus who doesn’t.
