Justin Timberlake’s ‘The 20/20 Experience (2 of 2)’ Is Streaming Right Now
Hear Drake and Jay Z bless the boy wonder with bars on funkier sequel set
After teasing us with “Take Back the Night” and “TKO,” plus the iHeartRadio debut of “True Blood” and “Only When I Walk Away,” Justin Timberlake is streaming The 20/20 Experience (2 of 2) in its entirety via iTunes. All 11 songs — including Drake collaboration “Cabaret” and Jay Z team-up “Murder” — can now be heard, revealing a funkier, more dancefloor-friendly set of tunes than the original The 20/20 Experience, which was also quite good.
Timbaland’s touch is felt strongly here as well, of course, and Michael Jackson’s influence looms large. Clear nods to Prince and P-Funk prevail as well, but one can’t ignore the suit-and-tie wearing fella’s bid at Halloween-song-as-pop-anthem bid on “True Blood.” The 20/20 Experience (2 of 2) is out September 27 but you can hear it right now on iTunes. Also, Drake’s Nothing Was the Same arrives tomorrow (September 24).
