Hear JT lament a failed relationship in this super-smooth, keyboard-led tune.

Recently the internet has flourished with new music from Justin Timberlake. The latest leak: R&B ballad “Better Not Together,” which you can hear below!

The song surfaced on the web over the weekend on the second installment in Big Mike and DJ Neptune’s unofficial R&B Kings mixtape series [via Idolator.com]. And if you recall, Mike and Neptune are pros when it comes to dropping high-profile tunes; Timberlake’s “Bigger Than the World” debuted on R&B Kings’ first installment, while an early version of Eminem’s “Crack a Bottle” appeared on the duo’s 2008 4th Quarter Pressure Part 2 mixtape.

Check out “Better Not Together,” which features Timberlake lamenting a failed relationship over a keyboard-led R&B beat. Then leave your thoughts in the comment section.
