"Justin Timberlake"

The Album that Birthed Justin Timberlake 2.0

When former NSYNC star Justin Timberlake started out his solo career, anyone would have been forgiven to think it’ll be hard for the fresh-faced popstar to make a name for himself as a solo artiste. His debut album Justified did just enough to correct that notion as it spun-hit tracks like “Cry Me A River” and “Rock Your Body.” Timberlake then took a 4-year hiatus off the music scene, a period in which he acted in movies and even contemplated going back to his boyband NSYNC before deciding to ditch them altogether. Justin Timberlake then returned with Future Sex/Love Sounds in 2006, an album that’s lyrically similar to Justified but that does explore a wider range of genres which include trance, rock and funk. This album sees the pop icon offer a different sound and that is not so surprising as it was entirely produced by veteran producer Timbaland. This was the album that officially signaled Timberlake’s transition from pop hitmaker to a legitimate force as a musician and actor with elemental sounds from the album still being felt in today’s music with Zayn in particular giving us the feel-good vibe Timberlake brought into the music scene. The fact that Justin Timberlake recorded this gem of an album without jotting a single lyric down in a paper further cements his status as an artiste who was well ahead of his time. But like Justified that had to rely on the push it was given by four solid tracks on the project, the same can be partly said of Future Sex/Love Sounds but Justin’s input alongside Timbaland’s masterpiece of a production created an album a step ahead of Justified and arguably one of the best albums of the 2000s. The album produced at the very least six singles that went on to attain chart success; including US Billboard Hot 100 chart-topping singles: "SexyBack", "My Love", and "What Goes Around... Comes Around.” The album also went on to receive several Grammy Award nominations, including Album of the Year and Best Pop Vocal Album, with “SexyBack” and “My Love” in which he featured rapper T.I, both winning their categories. Future Sex/Love Sounds has been certified multi-platinum in many countries worldwide, and has sold over 10 million copies, with four million in the United States alone. The album has also been added to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame's musical library and archive. It is often mostly regarded as Justin Timberlake’s best album till date, and rightly so.

Justin Timberlake and his album Man of the Woods, you can always be better

Definitely, during several years of my life, I was never a fan of the boy bands, that's why I was always away from the work of Justin Timberlake with *NSYNC until he decided to build a career as a soloist. At first, I was not so curious to know what I was doing, but by dint of finding it on TV shows, several collaborations with other singers and videos of their songs and concerts that appear everywhere, I started to get interested. It was a pleasant surprise to meet a singer who over the years and having his feet on the ground made him mature and dedicate himself to grow with his music and his very particular style to entertain. Unlike many who have left the groups that launched them to fame and that no matter how hard they try, they can not get a place in the public's taste or that for some reason they become very arrogant people (as is the case of Zayn ex 1D or One Direction, of which I have spoken in another Narrative) charisma, sympathy, and his concern to deliver quality things, have made Justin Timberlake one of the favorite artists of the United States and many other countries in the world. There have been many works that I have been able to know about him and when arriving at the most recent of his creations, Man of the Woods, he leaves me impressed for several reasons. Among other things, I am impressed by the generosity of the artist to put on an album so many songs and all of them with a considerable duration, it is noteworthy that in several of the songs on this album leaves ample space for what I suppose will be the moments in that will shine with his dance steps, same that go crazy to his fans during their concerts. As you read the title of the album, you can guess that it will be a collection of topics that will be collected from the most traditional catalog of American songs from the south, to what most identifies this country in terms of modern musical trends. And you're not wrong, Justin Timberlake stamps his album with a very American stamp and is proud of it. Curiously, for me the weakest song on the album and perhaps the most childish one, is precisely "Man of the Woods" but I think is because is part of the concept for what this album was designed, that is directed to a very specific audience, that he decided to include it and dedicate a video. Apart from that, the rest is outstanding. Like everything, the album has ups and downs in terms of the moods that are handled, but in general, their songs will make you vibrate with all that mix of styles and rhythms worthy of having them in different track lists to enjoy them at different times. Although I think the best way to enjoy it is to listen to it from beginning to end. Justin does not leave anything for later in this album: he gives us a master class of singing, dancing, feeling, different rhythms and currents and even gives a sample in his facet of being a father!

I Did Not Quite Fully Enjoy the R&B and Country-Flavoured Pop Justin Timberlake Is Mixing in Man of the Woods

Sometimes, a major international artist makes a bold move by experimenting with the type of music he or she creates. However, this move may be seen as groundbreaking in one’s own native country, but may be seen as a very risky move in the overseas markets – where the artist also has a big fan base. I am talking about Justin Timberlake’s last album Man of the Woods and the artist’s foray into R&B and country-flavoured pop which may have hurt the album’s chances in gaining international popularity. Nothing unusual in Justin’s move to be bold about his musical direction as many other artists before him have, at different points in their careers, experimented with other musical styles – either integrating it into their own style or totally making a new canvas featuring it. However, to Justin’s older fans like me – who have been there since his *NSYNC days, I felt a bit alienated by the songs in Man of the Woods. I remember excitedly buying the album, a bit wary because of the ‘strange’ title – and my wariness became reality when I fully heard the album. To someone who has been used to Timberlake’s sleek pop-R&B-urban fusion in his last few albums, although part of this album still had that sound, the songs towards the end of the album was certainly new territory for me. Not that my mind is not open to new possibilities music-wise in Timberlake’s cannon – it was a bit unusual to hear the arrangement of his songs in a country way. Since there were so many other good releases that time, I remember just shelving his album and forgot about it, until now, when I had to give it a listen again, since I wanted to make a narrative about it. Chart-wise though, the album can still be considered a success, reaching #1 in the US, and producing two top ten hits in the US charts. Sales-wise, it was the eighth best-selling album of 2018 but sales have stopped at around the 700,00 mark in the US, and around the 400,000 mark worldwide, a small number compared to the millions he is used to selling worldwide. Anyway, this musical maneuvering that Timberlake did in Man of the Woods may have put me off of him this time around, but I am still excited to hear what his next album would sound like.

Justified Expunges Justin Timberlake’s Bubblegum Boy Band Image and Helps Him Metamorphose Into a Bonafide Pop / R&B Artist with an Adult Following

When Justin Timberlake emerged as part of the boy band *N Sync in 1995 and as they gained massive worldwide success, it was clear that he had what it takes to make it as a solo artist. Only time was going to tell when that solo breakout was going to happen. You could say the band was still at the peak of their success when Timberlake released his solo debut album Justified – and it showed all the promise that Timberlake was already showing off as a younger performer. Justified brings him out of the teenybopper world and right smack into the world of adult music, working with top producers Pharrell and Timbaland who gave him that urban R&B sound that suits the image of an adult performer Timberlake was aiming for. Transitioning from a boy band member adored by millions of screaming teenage girls to wanting acceptance in the music industry as an adult performer can be tricky business but when it pays off, the dividends can be that good! Michael Jackson famously did it a few decades earlier – and one can see that the young Michael Jackson was just oozing with talent – it was a no-brainer he had to have a solo career. In a way, the same thing can be said about Justin Timberlake, who, if we listen to Justified was aiming for that Michael Jackson ‘sound’ and even ambitiously aiming for the prince of pop throne when the career of the king of pop at that time was slowing down. Justified was a solid debut for Timberlake not only because it managed to give him a mature image and erase that bubblegum boy band image he had for years – but it was also a portent of things to come in his future – as he aimed to make his music racier and more funky – one that defined a shift in the pop and R&B sound at that time.
