Keep on your “Suit & Tie” because The 20/20 Experience isn’t over just yet.
Justin Timberlake has released his first single “Take Back the Night” off the second half of The 20/20 Experience. The follow-up album, which is set to hit stores on Sept. 30, comes just over six months after the singer’s successful comeback.
“I originally recorded a massive amount of material and decided on the 20 tracks that I wanted on the album over a year ago," Timberlake said while announcing the album. "But, when I was mixing and going through all of the songs there were so many that I loved -- I couldn't resist... I had to throw in something extra on the 2nd half."
With the '80s disco feel, “Take Back the Night" is reminiscent of the early sounds of Michael Jackson. The single is over six-minutes long, which makes it a perfect complement to the songs on The 20/20 Experience.
Listen to the feel-good track below.
As always, Timberlake’s music has been extremely successful. After a seven-year hiatus from the music world, The 20/20 Experience reached No. 1 on the charts, selling 968,000 albums in its first week.
So is there anything Timberlake isn’t successful in? Apparently not.
Timberlake isn’t a stranger when it comes to reaching the No. 1 spot. His two solo albums, Justified (2002) and FutureSex/LoveSounds (2006) were both No. 1 in their debut weeks.
He was even tearing up the charts in his 'N Sync days. No Strings Attached sold 1.1 million copies in its first day and sold a record-breaking 2.4 million in its first week.
Even his acting career has prevailed. Timberlake starred in hits like The Social Network (which earned a best picture Oscar nod) and is king of Saturday Night Live every time he shows up to host.
He will next hit the road with rap mogul Jay-Z for the Legends of the Summer Tour later this month. He will then return to the road from Oct. 31 to Feb. 10 for The 20/20 Experience World Tour.
And we are sure he will leave his fans begging for more!
