Oh my gosh it’s finally happening! Justin Timberlake shared a photo on Mar. 17 chilling in the studio with Pharrell Williams. We think it’s safe to say this means he’s finally making some new music! We have all the details, right here.
It’s been far too long since Justin Timberlake, 35, has released new music. However, the dry spell may be coming to an end! Justin shared a photo on Mar. 17 of him and Pharrell Williams, 42, who he frequently collaborates with, in the studio together. Okay, we’re officially freaking out. Here’s what we know so far!
THIS IS NOT A DRILL! Justin is officially in the studio working with Pharrell! We haven’t gotten new music from JT since the 20/20 Experience was released way back in 2013, and we were starting to get really impatient waiting for some of that smooth, jazzy, poppy, sexy sound we love so much! But now everything is okay because he’s back working with Pharrell, who has been responsible for co-writing some of his best songs ever including “Senorita”, “Rock Your Body” and “Signs.” Yeah, this is gonna be good.
The photo, which went up on Mar. 17, shows Justin and Pharrell deep in conversation in a music studio. It’s super artsy in black and white, and Justin looks ready to write in his kangol hat, slumped back on a couch while scratching his chin. His partner looks enthusiastic to be collaborating again. We feel the same way, Pharrell!
On Jan. 5, TIME reported that we could expect some music from Justin in 2016, but it would be for the soundtrack of the children’s movie Trolls. Justin will voice one of the main characters alongside Anna Kendrick, but he will also contribute several songs.
However, that doesn’t mean adults won’t be able to enjoy the music, too. You may remember that Pharrell’s mega hit “Happy” appeared on the Minions soundtrack, and we couldn’t get it out of our heads for… ever. Hopefully Justin will take some advice from his buddy and release a masterpiece or two this year!
