After releasing a music album in 2006, Justin Timberlake has been performing in different songs along with other singers but hasn’t released his own music album until now. The 20/20 Experience has been ranked #1 for the second week. Before releasing this music album, his renowned song is “4 minutes” which was sung along with Madonna. Although he has nothing special to say, Justin Timberlake’s fans and media is eager to know about this long gap from the music world.
He didn’t actually disappear completely from the screen as he has been performing different career moves for himself. Justin Timberlake can be seen with Mila Kunis in the movie “Friends with Benefits” and known to develop a Facebook page named “The Social Network”. The 20/20 Experience is known as a come-back for Justin focusing all the spot light from the last two weeks.
The producer of this music album is Justin Timberlake, his all time favorite assistant Timbaland along with a new partner J-Roc. It has a mix-up of all the previous song styles performed by him which were pure pop and R&B. String, brass, keyboard and drumming instruments are used widely in it. His fans stated that The 20/20 Experience has revealed a mature side of Justin Timberlake.
Few drawbacks of this particular music album are that the songs are almost of 7 minutes or more. Media stated that it would have been more successful if the songs’ length would be shorter and if Justin had focused more on his song writing. Pop songs are known to be short and concise whereas the songs in this music album have few lyrics but more music, which is great to hear but arouse a dull feeling to the listener. Timberlake stated that he wanted to reorganize the traditional pop music style hence giving the songs a changeover.
Few of his fans also stated that the lyrics do not match with the music. They say that if this music album is compared to his previous ones and with other pop music, this comes in a second place. Pop music lyricist icons as Robyn and underground Norwegian, Annie are known to blend music with lyrics in such skills that listener feels like living the music. On the other hand, Journey is also one of the famous bands performing rock and pop songs.
A song having lyrics as “If you’d be my strawberry bubblegum, then I’d be your blueberry lollipop” is considered as non-sensical by listeners. They say that relating his love life with candy products sounds awkward. Songs which rocked this music album are “Pusher Love Girl”, “Mirrors”, “Suit & tie” and “Let the Groove Get In”. These songs were rated #1 in this music album and his fans declared that these songs reflect the true side of Justin Timberlake. They said that these songs have a balanced lyric and music which are the necessary for a skilful singer and a successful song.
Final statement of media and Timberlake’s fan cited that after all the flaws; this music album still has what it takes to be a hit but needs improvement.
