Justin Timberlake Working On A New Album

Kid Fury August 7, 2012 Cute For You! 35 Comments

Watch out, Bieber! The original pop-n-lockin’ Justin is returning for his Billboard spots and Afro-validation.

Justin Timberlake hasn’t released an album since 2006′s multi-platinum, FutureSex/LoveSounds. Instead he’s been focusing on acting and dodging Janet Jackson in them Hollywood streets.

In an interview with Digital Spy, producer, Jim Beanz talked about this planned work with Justin and Timbaland on their upcoming albums.

When I get back to the States I’m going to be helping out on Shock Value 3 with Timbaland and the Justin Timberlake project.

It’s still in the early stages, but they have a lot of tracks. While I’ve been over here in the UK they’ve been working, so by the time I get back they’ll have a whole load of ideas and I’m going to have to catch up!

He has some crazy, crazy stuff.

I’m not the same Timberlake fan that I was when “This I Promise You” melted off these undergarments, but I’m surprisingly interested in what this album will sound like. I’ll probably lose that interest by lunch, so whatever.

    Justin Timberlake is one of those artists that I just don’t get. He’s alright, but he’s nothing special, either. I don’t think he was terribly innovative or interesting. But for some reason, people still seem to anticipate new music from him, after all these idle years. Bish, you ain’t no Sade, D’Angelo, or Lauryn Hill!

    Is that photo from a movie or something? he looks like a soccer dad loool!

    • KidFury

      That was on the set of Runner, Runner. He plays an Ivy League student.

      • Suchalady

        Oh good, because I was about to ask why he looks like the psychotic husband in a Lifetime movie.

  • F’em all

    I love Justin Timberlake (and I’ve wanted “This I promise you” to be my wedding song since I was in Junior High)

    I just don’t know if he can still make hits and dance with as much charisma as he used to. His fan base is older and the music game has changed, we’ll see…

    PS: his hair in that picture tho?! Nuh uh

  • speendemon

    after that Janet Jackson incident, his career went down hill…

    • Nate

      Your memory betrays you. After Justin exposed Janet’s tit, he pussed out and crawled into a hole for six months, and then came back with “Sexyback” and the FutureSex/LoveSounds album, which was his most successful to date.

      The Super Bowl incident did not hurt JT’s career at all, because he left Janet to deal with everything. And because it was her breast, she was chastised. I still hate Justin Timberlake to this day for that.

        Sounds Legit, I’ll Take That…

      • Angela

        He crawled in a whole for 2 years actually. I still hold that against him. I can never genuinely like him afterward.

        • whatevs

           I didn’t like him that much before and I shol didn’t like him after that shit so… bye bye bye (I had to)

      • Yep It’s Kwanzaa

        I side-eyed him as well for that incident especially how he laughed about it said he was lucky to do in in interviews after but ultimately is was her decision and her boob so she can’t be salty, she shouldn’t have lied about it being a wardrobe malfunction for one thing.

        • Nate

          Well, I still have my suspicions that JT was only supposed to tear off the outer part, and not the entire bra. Either way, yes, it was in poor taste for a family event. But Justin still should’ve stood up for Janet. Instead, he made it glaringly obvious that he was out-for-self.

          To this day, Janet can’t make a song about sex without reminding the public of the incident, while Justin was able to release a single that was essentially about S&M–which went straight to #1, no questions asked. He used the double standard to his benefit.

          • Yep It’s Kwanzaa

            but it wasn’t an actual bra just the red frills attached to the leather bustier. I agree though he let her take all the heat.

          • Brandon Dean

             It wasn’t a bra, but it was a bra cup stitched into the outfit. The leater part was supposed to reveal the red bra underneath, but it ended up ripping both parts off instead of the buttons unsnapping. Poor costume design that lead to an unfortunate result. I still resent Justin for throwing her under the bus in the situation.

  • Marie

    It wasn’t that his career went downhill because it was really only Janet that suffered for that incident. Homeboy just decided not to make music anymore. He found a love for comedy and making people laugh. I believe he’s quite good at both. 

    • Kashala Jarrells

      He makes me laugh because he’s a horrible actor. Does that count as comedy? 

      • su

        THIS. Jusin is a BAD actor.

  • nellkaye

    well its about damn time my white chocolate jt make some new brake up make up ass shaking songs im here for it

  • Statesside

    FINALLY! Gosh!

  • Basquiat

    I loved FS/LS. I think his maturity will bring a new dimension to his music. 

  • M.J.

    Well, it’s about damn time. 

    P.S. In a fight with Robin Thicke and JT… who would win? 

    • Nate

      Robin Thicke. That’s not even a fair fight. JT ain’t about that life.

  • CS

    sigh. looks like it was all a rumor.

    let me go weep while i play “gone” on repeat

  • Angela

    JC Chasez made This I Promise You tho.

  • keilo

    I hope he has more tracks like “Set The Mood”….which made me 10 textures of wet….

  • NT86

    He’s made some good music in the past but I dunno. Maybe he should just stick to acting now. The market is way too crowded now with everyone murdering R&B with this techno/eurodance BS.

  • EbonyJ

    omg Fury “This I Promise You” is THAT song… lol love it

  • Yep It’s Kwanzaa

    I can’t wait I think Justin knew how to properly mix a lil techno and Dance without totally diluting the RnB flavor of his music which is what made it so good. He’s an amazing performer as well I remember he had his tour shot and played on HBO. I doubt he’ll play into the BS of today’s music and stay true to his orginality.

  • Suchalady

    Music has gone even more downhill since 2006 but I’m here for this. I still love “This I Promise You”.

    Lmao @ dodging JJ.

  • Smacks_hoes

    Never was into his music…I love the movies though. Friends with benefits is one of my favorite romantic comedies. (the notebook and the titanic doesn’t count because their everyone’s favorite)

  • Veronnica

    I always wanted Justin to come back with a black girl on his arm and eventually make her his wife. That would have given me life for all eternity. But, Jessica is cool so I guess I can let her be a substitute…

    • Dannielle Simms

      Get out of my head! I also hoped that black would be me lol!  There is still time, he hasn’t married her yet! lol! JK! I am looking forward to his album though, I really liked his stuff

  • Mimi

     I’ve been waiting for Mr. Timberlake to resurface!  When Justin Bieber did that tired ass version of the Ying Yang Twins “Whisper Song” aka “Girlfriend” I was secretly wanting Justin Timberlake to show up and show out. I’m not a Justin Timberlake fan, but I need him to do something to make Miss Bieber take a smooth backseat.

  • KeKe

    JT coming back like he did in 06 will kill Usher (again), make Beiber take a seat in the back of the bus, make songz rethink his life choices and team breezy ready to assassinate all “blue eyed soul”.

  • Brandon Dean

    I think he is ok, but I don’t see it for him due to the Janet situation, and how he threw her under the bus. I see Robin Thicke for real r&b, and I see Chris Brown for Rachet-Pop. I even see Taio Cruz and Usher for that “why am I still making dance music” crowd, but Justin doesn’t fit for me. I always found him overrated, good vocalist but ultimately popular because there were a lot of pockets being lined by perpetuating his popularity.

    Viacom (which owns all the music channels essentially, and many radio stations) had a financial interest in him being popular, as they did with Britney Spears. And now that Viacom makes more from reality than they do music, I am sure they could care less about being JT’s free promotion arm 6 years later.
