JT's bringing swagger back

You can't grow up in Memphis and not have an appreciation for good music.

I listen to every genre across the board.

Although I may not love everything that's out there, I can respect a talented musician.

My all-time favorites, who couldn't be more different, are Elvis and Kid Rock.

Then there's this fella...

• Memphian    • singer

• dancer    • actor

• philanthropist

• all-around hottie

Today, Justin Timberlake's new cd dropped. 

The 20/20 Experience is Justin's first album in seven years.

If he brought sexy back with the last album, he's bringing swagger back with this one.

The lyrics, the music, the vibe... It's all very old school.

Reminiscent of Motown, Al Green, Marvin Gaye

Bow chicka wow wow music

Like nine months from now, there will be babies -- lots and lots of babies.

And I love it!

I plan to listen to it on constant repeat until the second half of the experience 
comes out later this year. Yes, that's right. TEN MORE TRACKS LATER THIS YEAR!

I don't have any of his CD's but I do like him!!

I've never purchased any of his CD's. That's not to say I don't like JT because I DO, a lot. He's an all around talented dude for sure.

I am anxious to hear this album. Thanks for the heads up on the vibe it gives, because I can dig it.

Ok, I'm a JT fan. However, I'm not totally loving Suit and Tie. Will it grow on me? IDK. I hope it does. I wanted and expected great things from this album.

I've only heard that one suit & tie song.. and I didn't even like that one!

Christina said...

I totally agree, he is insanely talented. I wasn't a fan of Suit & Tie at all and the rest of the album hasn't totally grown on me yet. Even though Mirrors sounds like a 90s song, I like that one a lot. I also love Pusher Love Girl and Body Count.

I've always loved JT and I'm so glad he released a new cd! I listened to it yesterday via Spotify because I didn't want to buy and not like it, and I must say I love it! I agree with you this is going to be the reason for the next baby boom! lol

I've never been a huge fan of JT's music, although I love him. I might have to give this album a shot, though.
