Justin Timberlake says new album will be his most 'personal' yet

As noted by Bustle.com, Pharrell co-produced more than half of Timberlake's 2002 debut solo album, Justified with his N.E.R.D. partner Chad Hugo.

But that's not all.

As we await the arrival of the first track on Friday and the rest of the album on February 4, just two days before Timberlake's Super Bowl LII halftime performance, we put together a wish list of what we'd like to see from the superstar's fifth record.

"I've been in and out of the studio, obviously, with some of my more frequent and less frequent collaborators", Timberlake said.

After going 7-9 in his first year, the team jumped to 12-4 last season and reached the playoffs. The Raiders followed that up by becoming one of the league's disappointing teams.

Justin's new material will be his first since the anthemic "Can't Stop The Feeling", taken from the Trolls soundtrack, which was released in 2016. After seeing the visuals in the video teaser, though, we're hoping this isn't the last we see of Timberlake being one with nature.

Timberlake's 2-year-old son Silas, and wife Jessica Biel, whom he pulls in for a kiss, make cameos in the video.

Musician Pharrell Williams also appears long enough to let us know that a new song is a "smash", as we hear various samplings from the album. Although, JT's album releases two days before the Super Bowl, it has not yet been confirmed if he will be performing songs from the new album.

Justin Timberlake may have earned plenty of goodwill with the Black community by way of his dance moves and well-meaning soul rifts inspired by the likes of the late Michael Jackson and others, although he still has hell to pay.
