Ladies and gentlemen, make way for no less than Justin Timberlake who was destined to be a solo star in the first place.
Was he destined to be a solo star? Absolutely, yes. Provided his history in the performing arts, no doubt about it. But it’s also this history that would make us realize that he was meant to go through those times to get to this first solo album Justified. That he was meant to join Star Search and not win. That he was meant to be part of the Mickey Mouse Club and be there as it got cancelled. That he was meant to be part of the hit boyband NSYNC and move forward as a solo act. Justin Randell, as was his first screen name, rose as a real artist to becoming the Justin Timberlake we now know— a total performer, an artist so committed to the craft he’s called to be excellent at. People who discovered him to be part of NSYNC also recognized his pure talent that they most likely were already able to foresee his future solo career. So, was he destined to be a solo star? Absolutely, yes! But it took him to take his passion so seriously that people also took him seriously when he came out with his first solo album. He had to make sure that the songs he wrote and the music videos along with his guesting had to be planned out and executed well to be successful as a solo artist. And then began the Justin Timberlake solo journey.
