Multi-platinum pop star Justin Timberlake is back with strutting new single Filthy – and it’s an opinion-splitter if ever there was.
Co-produced by Timberlake, Timbaland and Danja, the Prince-esque electro-funk sound on the track is a million miles from the likes of Can’t Fight The Feeling.
For some that’s a good thing. Others, though, reckon the song is downright awful.
Here at AAA Towers we’ve given it a fair few spins and, while we didn’t immediately love it, we’ve only gone and ended up making it our Hottest Record of the Week.
The track is lifted from JT’s forthcoming fifth album, Man Of The Woods, which is released in early February.
Talking about the inspiration behind the album, Timberlake, who will be performing at this year’s Super Bowl halftime show, explained: “This album is really inspired by my son, my wife, my family, but more so than any album I’ve ever written, where I’m from. And it’s personal.”
