Justin Timberlake Releases New Single and Video, “Selfish”

Justin Timberlake is back with a new single and video, “Selfish”, from his upcoming album, “Everything I Thought It Was”, which is set to drop on March 15, 2024. The song is a catchy, emotional ballad that showcases Timberlake’s vocal range and lyrical skills. The video, directed by Dave Meyers, features Timberlake in a sleek suit, dancing and singing in a studio, as he prepares for a video shoot.

The song is about being in love with someone who is not fully committed to the relationship, and feeling insecure and jealous. Timberlake sings, “I know you’re not mine, but I can’t help being selfish / I want you all to myself, even though I know you’re with someone else / I don’t care if it’s wrong, I just want you for the night / Baby, don’t make me fight, just let me be selfish”. The song has a smooth, groovy beat, with subtle influences from R&B and pop.

Timberlake revealed that the song was partly inspired by John Lennon’s classic, “Jealous Guy”, which he said was one of his favorite songs of all time. He said he wanted to write a song that captured the same feeling of vulnerability and honesty that Lennon expressed in his song. He also said he wanted to experiment with different sounds and styles for his new album, which he described as “a reflection of everything I’ve been through and everything I’ve learned in the past few years”.

Timberlake will be promoting his new album with two major appearances this week. He will be a guest on “The Tonight Show With Jimmy Fallon” tonight, where he will perform “Selfish” live for the first time. He will also host and perform on “Saturday Night Live” this Saturday, where he will debut another new song from his album. Timberlake is no stranger to SNL, having hosted the show five times before, and being a part of some of the most memorable sketches and musical moments in the show’s history.

Timberlake’s fans are eagerly awaiting his new album, which will be his first since “Man of the Woods” in 2018. The album received mixed reviews from critics and fans, and was seen as a departure from his previous sound and image. Timberlake said he wanted to make a more personal and authentic album, inspired by his family and his roots. However, some fans felt that the album lacked the energy and innovation that they expected from him.

With “Selfish”, Timberlake seems to be returning to his pop roots, while also exploring new musical directions. The song has already received positive feedback from fans and critics, who praised its catchy melody, heartfelt lyrics, and Timberlake’s vocal performance. The song is expected to climb the charts and become a hit, as Timberlake prepares to release his new album next month.
