Justin Timberlake’s Experience
Arts & Entertainment Editor
The 20/20 Experience is back. Justin Timberlake’s second part to his 20/20 Experience dropped Sept. 30. Just releasing the first part of the 20/20 Experience only seven months ago, he kicks off his five month tour of 20/20 this weekend in London.
The 32-year-old singer has had quite a successful year having one of the best-selling albums of the year (the first part of the 20/20 Experience). On top of that, three songs from the most recent album have been top hits all around the world. Timberlake has also just recently won Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award and the Video of the Year (for ‘Mirrors’ from the first album of the 20/20 Experience) at MTV Video Music Awards.
Unlike Timberlake’s last album Future Sex/Love Sounds, which was “more of a club dance album”, the 20/20 Experience has a different sound. It’s a new take on old soulful jazz music of the 30’s and 40’s with a twist of young relatable pop/hip-hop style.
His most recent song “Take Back the Night” from the second part of the 20/20 Experience sets the bar high for his newest album. This song is upbeat and smooth with a jazzy feel to it, giving listeners just a taste of what's to come in his new album.
Justin’s world tour comes to Philadelphia in November and then again in February. After watching the Justin Timberlake’s performance at the VMA in Brooklyn, his world tour should be the highlight of his career.
