The day has come, fellow JT fans! Our favorite guy has dropped new music & we’ve waited almost 5 years for this (aside from “Cant Stop The Feeling”) This past Friday, Justin dropped a promo video for his album, Man Of The Woods (which drops on February 2, BTW). The video explained the influences that inspired Justin through out the creation of MOTW, which included wife, Jessica Biel, their son, Silas, & his Tennessee roots- which led people to believe this album would be more country inspired. The first single off the album dropped today, entitled “Filthy” & Twitter is torn! It seems they were expecting more country, pop inspired music & that’s exactly what Justin didn’t serve! Instead, Filthy is full of funk & electronic sounds, with a video that is inspired by Steve Jobs & robots doing weird stuff (Watch below). Every album Justin has dropped has not sounded like the last, which, if you’re a JT fan, you know is his “thing” (the first tweet below explains that.) Personally, it wasn’t what I expected, but after the first listen, I fell in love (obviously because everything he does is perfect.) .
The reaction I’m seeing for @jtimberlake new music reminds me of people’s reaction for his past music. You don’t get it? You don’t have to, his fans do. His sound stays evolving. #Day1Fan #ManOfTheWoods #Filthy

as cliché as it sounds, filthy just gets better and better every time you listen to it, it's just a fact

First I thought JT’s song new song #filthy was trash. Upon second listen I think it’s garbage.

My favorite thing about #Filthy is JT is making the music he wants to. No pressure to be inherently pop or prove himself. It actually sounds v Future Sex/Love Sounds to me, and uses a lot of the instrumentals he incorporates on tour to transition to new songs.

Justin Timberlake: "This album is inspired by my wife, my son but mostly where I'm from. It's called MAN OF THE WOODS."…
World: Ahhh amazing! 1st single?
JT: I'm glad you asked! It's called FILTHY, a synthetic growl about a futuristic sex robot simulating an orgy.

#Filthy is polarizing, unique, weird, funky, & surely gonna divide a lot of people…
But I think I’m digging it. 🤷🏽♂️

I am a huge Justin Timberlake fan, but after waiting till 12 to hear his new single #Filthy off the #ManoftheWoods, I have one conclusion…we desperately need @Timbaland to produce this whole album. Disappointing Single. Last two albums were incredible. JT and Timbo are a must pic.twitter.com/h4KkKAGJPx
