If you thought Justin Timberlake's new album "The 20/20 Experience" would be anything like "FutureSex/Lovesounds" you're in for a rude awakening. Hey guys you're watching ClevverMusic on YouTube. It's been 7 years since the 25-year-old single Justin Timberlake released his "FutureSex/Lovesounds" album, so it's no surprise that now, the married 32-year-old has molded a new sound. JT no longer has to prove himself as a boy band runaway and we see an in-love relaxed adult. The main similarity between "The 20/20 Experience" and his last album is his producer, Timbaland. The last album was more futuristic, while this record is undeniably R&B, so it seems he traded sexy for classy! Upon first look we can't help but notice all the tracks on the album are fairly lengthy, the longest being 8 minutes.
Now, for the standout tracks on the 10-song album. It starts off with "Pusher Love Girl" followed by the lead single "Suit & Tie" but it's the 3rd song "Don't Hold The Wall" that has us curious. The 7 minute song starts with a Timbaland intro and throughout features tribal beats, rainsticks, and lots of musical production. Although we're not totally sure what "Don't Hold The Wall" means (likely get on the floor and dance?) but it's unique and we can definitely hear it being played in a club.
Next, the delicious "Strawberry Bubblegum" throws us off with the pop song title, but is actually a sexual R&B love song with the lyrics, "Don't change nothing, because your flavor's so original." The track is one of the most mellow and peaceful on the album and offsets the upbeat tracks very nicely.
After "Tunnel Vision", "Spaceship Coupe", and "That Girl" we hear "Let The Groove Get In" which is a standout for it's upbeat conga feel! This is our favorite dance feel- good track on the album with the lyrics chanting, "Let the grove get in there there right there/ Are you comfortable right there right there!"
Rounding out the album is fan favorite track "Mirrors" about wife Jessica Biel, and ends with surprisingly somber song "Blue Ocean Floor". The track features slow synths and piano, while solidifying Justin's maturity in the tender song singing, "Under the water you scream so loud but the silence surrounds you/ But I hear it loud when you fall in the deep and I'll always find you."
Overall, the album has highs and lows and we appreciate his genuine creativity and passion for the 10 tracks. "The 20/20 Experience" officially drops on March 19th! Let us know if you think this album compares to his previous work- and do ya like the new JT?
