Holy SH-T, you guys!
It sounds as though that this is only the BEGINNING of Justin Timberlake's musical comeback in 2013!
With his new album, The 20/20 Experience, dropping Tuesday, the singer has apparently been planning to follow it up with a SECOND part, featuring ten more, previously-unreleased songs, this November, many of which could very well feature Jay-Z!
Producer Questlove, who performed with The Roots and Justin all week on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon, broke the news, revealed on his music forum website:
i will say the album is OVERLY ambitious. like a LOT of ideas crammed into one. spoiler alert. 20/20 Vol 2 comes out in nov. (10 songs now…..10 songs later= 20 vision). i admire the balls it took to make this record. cause he coulda easily urshurd his work in and made diplo his teddy riley to 20/20's dangerous instead of sticking with timb's Quincy. feel me? i like throwback Timb. (he played me songs out of order and off both records so i don't know what made the final cut) so i was shocked he wasn't 4 on the flooring it like the timb of 2005 was doing. like these joints were straight up missy/magoo timb and justin said he wanted timb to "get back in his real zone" even if it meant alienating the tweens born after 86 who never ever heard of the sly slick and wicked. i mean suit and tie is the MOST UNLIKELY james brown production reference. but of course unless you got a master degree in soul-ology this won't mean shit to you. and i told him my assistant zarah (born in 88) was frowning like "i don't like this song" and is he cool with the fact that only 35 year old people who love their soul in 95 bpm zone will "get" this song. and he was like "why do we put all of our power in the hands of 18 year olds….i wanted to make a joint that 40 year olds would love too. and by the time the video came out all the 86 after sect were aboard again. (i agree the only thing i don't like about suit and tie is jay's beat switch up…..its cute….but its a pander move—if you gonna go 40…..go 40/40 with it. anywho….i love the songs, but was worried on how he will cut the prime rib to feed to toothless babies. ballsy move however. i applaud ballsy moves.
Again with the holy SH-T!
Talk about a CONCEPT album! And we'd definitely be down for to be a two-parter!
Justin himself even seemed to hint that more tune-age was coming earlier this week when he appeared on 106 & Park, and revealed:
"I was with [Timbaland] and we were working on some stuff for Miss Beyonce and she made the mistake of letting Jay and I have another room at the studio. I don't want to give too much away but we've done a lot of songs together so hopefully those will find a way to see the light of day."
Fingers crossed that we won't need to hope, and that some of that material will make it onto this alleged second part!
November's not that even long a wait! This is SO exciting!
What do U think?? Will we only be hearing the first portion of The 20/20 Experience when it drops this week?!
