Justin Timberlake Reportedly Working on New Album

Well, folks, what many out there have been anxiously waiting for just may be coming sooner than expected. It is now rumored that Justin Timberlake is finally returning to the (music) studio to work on a new album. The news was broken via producer Jim Beanz who had this to say regarding the situation:

When I get back to the States I’m going to be helping out on Shock Value 3 with Timbaland and the Justin Timberlake project. It’s still in the early stages, but they have a lot of tracks. While I’ve been over here in the UK they’ve been working, so by the time I get back they’ll have a whole load of ideas and I’m going to have to catch up! He has some crazy, crazy stuff.

The all-around entertainer has been on an extended acting hiatus for several years now and is also planning to get married soon to actress Jessica Biel. It's been roughly six years since JT last graced us with a full-length album, so it really goes without saying that many are truly anticipating this return. Stay tuned for more.

    He kinda still is though. Usher has dropped some weak records with some strong tracks, limiting your output like JT has heightens anticipation and allows for a stronger finished product. Potentially.

    Justin Timberlake . . . really, hypebeast ? Really ?

    Usher peaked out at Confessions. He's been in the business a long time, I think Timberlake's bigger at the moment.

    I'd say he plateaued with Confessions, in my opinion 8701 is equal to or greater than that joint (probably because it's *my* Usher album).

    It doesn't help that he drops fairly long albums, so there's filler, and he is pretty intent on following trends to stay relevant, resulting in awful eurodance inspired tracks that sound like all the other weaker Pop/R&B releases out there. I definitely expect JTs forthcoming record to make more of a splash than Usher's last few.

    The thing is with JT he can step back into the ring and take the crown immediately - from whoever...he's that good, this dude never fell off to me.
