You only have to watch a few seconds of Michael Jackson’s “Love Never Felt So Good” music video to know the Pop King is probably smiling down on us, pleased with the release of his new posthumous album Xscape.
The video for the Justin Timberlake-assisted single features dancers of all ages imitating the late singer’s popular dance moves and moments from a few of his videos.
It’s simple. It’s sweet. It’s enough to make you sad that we’ll never get to see that infectious smile again.
Xscape is in stores now. Continue reading
Posthumous music can be tricky, but I think it’s safe to say the new single from the late Michael Jackson’s forthcoming album is as good as they come.
Timbaland and Timberlake’s signature styles are obvious on “Love Never Felt So Good” and Jackson’s young vocals are still enough to make a fan’s hear flutter. The song was written in 1983, according to Billboard.
“Love Never Felt So Good” is the lead single from the singer’s posthumous album Xscape, which will be released May 13. Continue reading
Justin Timberlake has announced another round of tour dates for The 20/20 Experience World Tour, running through the end of 2014. The tour kicked off in November 2013.
The singer announced 14 new North American tour dates recently, starting on Nov. 20 in Portland and ending Dec. 20 in Atlanta.
Tickets for the news dates will go on sale on April 14. Pre-sale will begin on April 8 for members of the singer’s fan club.
After a long hiatus from music, Timberlake released two new albums, two volumes of The 20/20 Experience, in 2013. In addition to touring by himself last year, the singer also toured with Jay Z last summer for the Legends Of Summer tour. Continue reading
Justin Timberlake is on the search for a couple that got engaged on a train to the tune of his latest single “Not A Bad Thing.” The new music video revolves around a team searching for the man and woman and interviewing real-life couples about their relationships. The visuals debuted on The Ellen Degeneres Show earlier today.
The documentary-styled music video fits with the romantic song perfectly, so I don’t think fans will mind that Timberlake doesn’t actually make an appearance.
“Not A Bad Thing” is featured on Timberlake’s last album The 20/20 Experience – 2 of 2. Continue reading
Travis Garland mixes two Justin Timberalake and Timbaland creations in his latest YouTube video.
The “Motel Pool” singer does a smooth mashup of Beyonce’s “Rocket” and Timberlake’s “Pusher Love Girl,” which recently snagged a Grammy for Best R&B Song at the Grammys.
Timbaland and Timberlake both played a role in the sultry Beyonce track, sharing writing and production credits with Miguel, J-Roc and Beyonce herself. Timbaland, J-Roc and Timberlake also produced and co-wrote “Pusher Love Girl” alongside James Fauntleroy.
It’s no surprise the two songs fit together so perfectly, but that doesn’t make this video any less enjoyable.

I’ve been pretty fond of 2013 and the singles that were released. From comeback singles to sleeper hits, artists were able to churn out some pretty noteworthy releases, for the most part.
There were 15 songs that stood out to me as the top singles of the year. From Justin Timberlake to Drake, find out what made the list and how they ranked below!!
Last night Justin Timberlake appeared on Saturday Night Live for the second time this year alongside his pal Jimmy Fallon, who served as the host for the episode. The singer performed two cuts from his latest album The 20/20 Experience – 2 of 2.
Timberlake’s first performance included a laser show and distorted vocals for “Only When I Walk Away.” He then slowed things down and performed “Pair Of Wings” while sitting and playing the guitar for his final performance.
In related new, Saturday Night Live announced Drake as the host and performer for their Jan. 18 episode. Am I the only one excited about how good this could be? Continue reading
Covers are powerful because they can provide listeners with a new perspective on some of their favorite songs. Most artists perform covers during their live shows, but there were six that really stood out to me this year because the artists managed to transform the songs and completely make them their own.
Check them out below! Continue reading
Let’s face it, end of the year lists aren’t factual. As much as we’d all like to think they are, in reality they’re just heavily weighted opinions. And they are stressful. Honestly. The only thing more stressful than asking me to name my favorite album/song of the year is asking me to name my favorite album/song of all time. People who are able to do this effortlessly should not be trusted. It is as simple as that.
Anyway, it was a struggle, but I think I was finally able to pinpoint the 15 albums that I loved the most from this year. Continue reading
The meltdowns and excessive tweeting from both fans and artists can only mean one thing. Grammy nominations are in.
Jay Z leads the nominations this year with 9 nods, while Pharrell Williams, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, Kendrick Lamar and Justin Timberlake received 7 nominations each. Miley Cyrus wasn’t nominated for anything, but Sara Bareilles surprisingly got a few nods, including Album of the Year for The Blessed Unrest. It is also worth noting that Bareilles’ “Brave” will officially face off with Katy Perry’s “Roar” in the Best Pop Solo Performance Category after months of fans accusing Perry of copying “Brave” and turning it into a huge hit. Newcomer Lorde is nominated for a few awards, too, including Record of the Year and Lana Del Rey, who was snubbed last year, snagged TWO nominations, including one for “Young & Beautiful.” Beyonce and Adele also managed to get nominations this year, as did Tamar Braxton, Kacey Musgraves and Ed Sheeran.
So, while Justin Timberlake and Kanye West were pretty much ignored in the major categories, I’m still pretty pleased with the nominees this year.
Check out the major categories, and share your thoughts and predictions below!!
