Justin Timberlake made everybody wait nearly seven years between albums. With that math, we’d be into the second term of the next Clinton administration before another opus surfaced.
But JT is a giver, and he won’t make anybody sweat nearly that long the next time around.
“I need to clear up a rumor,” he told the crowd at a release party for his new album The 20/20 Experience in Los Angeles last night, during an interview with Ryan Seacrest. “This whole thing about this being the first half of the album is true.”
Timberlake was referring to the idea of a second 20/20 album surfacing some time later this year. The rumor was first floated by Ahmir “?uestlove” Thompson on the message boards for the Roots’ Okayplayer label. “Spoiler alert. 20/20 Vol 2 comes out in nov,” Thompson wrote. “10 songs now…..10 songs later= 20 vision.”
Neither Timberlake nor his publicist confirmed the November release date.
The 20/20 Experience is on sale now, and you can celebrate with Timberlake via tonight’s Target Presents the iHeartRadio Album Release Party With Justin Timberlake, which airs at 8 o’clock on the CW.
