The Internet Is Majorly Divided Over Justin Timberlake's New Song
Justin Timberlake dropped the music video for "Filthy," the first single off his upcoming album Man of the Woods, and fans aren't sure what to make of it.
On the one hand, people are giving Timberlake credit for always keeping his music innovative. But on the other hand, fans are confused. They were expecting a more grounded album, based on what Timberlake has been teasing, and this new song is decidedly different.
Even more interestingly, Timberlake's single is drawing comparisons to Taylor Swift's new music.
Timberlake initially described his upcoming album as "inspired by my son, my wife, my family but more so than any other album that I've ever written, where I'm from. And it's personal."
Timberlake was born and raised in Shelby Forest, a small community in Tennessee.
"It feels like mountains, trees, campfires, like Wild West, like now," Timberlake's wife, Jessica Biel, can be heard saying in voiceover in the teaser video for the album.
The music in Timberlake's album teaser definitely had a different vibe, so it'll be interesting to see how he blends this "earthy" album with his single "Filthy," which features an out-of-this-world robot and some electronic beats.
Check out the video for "Filthy" below and judge for yourself. Timberlake recommended on Twitter that you listen to it with your volume up.
