Yes. It’s true. I am a fan of Justin Timberlake. Not just his music. Not just his SNL appearances Not just his boyish good looks. He is a great entertainer.
His latest release – The 20/20 Experience – is as good as they say it is. Suit and Tie is what disco should have been and what inserting a rapper in the middle of a song should be. It’s smoke-filled big band lounge meets smoooth hip hop dance. That’s right. Smoooth with 3 o’s.
The rest of the album is layered and sophisticated. Stay with me, I’m still talking about Justin Timberlake. Justin Timberlake is like my Thomas Kinkade. I can’t say I’m supposed to like him but I do. Maybe because I like to dance or maybe because I like rhythm and I like a good beat. Or maybe it is his boyish good looks.
Whatever the reason, I will be wearing out the grooves in this one.
