Talk about a comeback! Justin Timberlake’s new song ‘Filthy’ is everything we wanted and more — it even references a meme. Watch the ‘Black Mirror’-esque video!
We missed you, Justin Timberlake! “Filthy,” which is co-written and co-produced by JT, Timbaland, and Danja, dropped today, Jan. 5, and we’re already obsessed. Watch the music video above, which has JT playing a Steve Jobs-type character who unveils his newest creation at the Pan-Asian Deep Learning Conference in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia in the year 2028. How about that dancing robot?!
“Filthy” is the first of four singles that Justin has promised to release ahead of his upcoming fourth studio album Man Of The Woods, which is due Feb. 2. The record is his “most ambitious album to date, both sonically and lyrically,” according to a press release. “Combining the sounds of traditional American rock with the modern influences of collaborators The Neptunes, Timbaland, Chris Stapleton, and Alicia Keys, this new material explores storytelling inspired by his son, his wife, and his personal journey from Memphis to where he is today.” Can’t wait!
Also, in case it slipped your mind, he’ll be the Pepsi Super Bowl LII Halftime Show performer on Sunday, Feb. 4, effectively putting “Nipplegate” behind him. See photos from the infamous performance here.
Check out an excerpt of the lyrics to “Filthy:”
I said, put your filthy hands all over me
And no, this ain’t the clean version
And what you gonna do with all that meat?
Cookin’ up a mean servin’
No question, I want it
Fire up, everybody smokin’
Your friends, my friends
And they ain’t leavin’ till six in the morning (six in the morning)
Caught a chill, baby, you the coldest
Go far, put ’em on notice
If you know what I want, then yeah
