Justin Timberlake’s The 20/20 Experience (read production credits here) isn’t even out yet in the United States but be ready to treat yourself to the sequel this November. Questlove spilled the beans on a post in the Okayplayer forum about JT releasing the part 2 later this year, while discussing a review from the NY Times. According to him, The 20/20 Experience means 10 songs now followed by 10 songs on the next album.
Questo wasn’t happy that the news got out as he accused the board members of leaking the news but as we all know, this is the great internet and once you post something on a public forum, the rest becomes history.
Read what he had to say below.
UPDATE: Justin Timberlake has confirmed another album during an intimate iHeartRadio album release party at El Rey Theatre in Los Angeles on Monday evening. However, he chose not to give out a date yet.
“I’ve got to clear up the rumors. This whole thing about this only being the first part … is true. There is another half. I’m not giving you a release date”
its constructive criticism
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.
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
