Mmk, it’s time to get some dance dance dancing into your day.
Justin Timberlake’s first new release in almost three years, “Can’t Stop the Feeling,” is definitely the upbeat summer anthem we’ve been waiting for. Not only does the single have a sick beat and a gorgeous JT falsetto in the chorus, but it also has not one but two music videos. Talk about impressive.
The first video comes with a video full of A-list cameos and fire dance moves. Because the song is off the soundtrack for DreamWorks’ upcoming movie Trolls (set to hit theaters Nov. 4), it’s no surprise the cameos included the cast: Anna Kendrick, Gwen Stefani, James Corden and, of course, Timberlake.
Timberlake teased his fans about the upcoming single on social media for an entire week, dropping snippets of the song and answering questions from fans. When one follower on Twitter asked what the new track would be called, he replied, “#CantStopTheFeeling… 2 more days,” sending fans into a frenzy with the name and the release date.
And then, when we least expected it, he tweeted this:

And on May 17, it happened — the release. It has even more people dancing (because how could you not to this song?) and Timberlake wearing an all-white ensemble and dancing like a total BAMF. It’s pretty great; take a look:
JT’s upcoming album is still pretty much a secret, but all through the recording process, he’s been giving hints about what we can expect to hear. He’s released quite a few photos from the studio, including shots he took with Pharrell and Little Big Town, all but promising some big names featured on some of his tracks.
And until the rest of the album drops, we’ll be happy dancing to “Can’t Stop the Feeling,” which is sure to be a huge hit. And by huge hit, we all mean the song of the summer.
