Justin Timberlake is ready. For what? In three days, the singer, who has been dormant from making music for several years, will finally release new music. OMFG!
After teasing us with a tweet, which lead to speculation that he was working with some HUGE names, he dropped a minute-long video revealing what’s next. At the end of the clip, a counter clock comes up, revealing that new music is on its way in just three days. We. Can’t. Handle. It.

In this teaser video, we follow JT as he walks through a studio, with his passionate voiceover explaining why he has taken an extended break from music and why he has waited.
Essentially, he says that music is so important to him that he gets too close to it and it drains him on an emotional level so he needs time to recharge and refocus. He also refuses to release anything that is not of the highest quality, for both him as an artist, and for you as a fan.
The video starts with him saying that people were asking him, “Are you just done…with music?”
He then delivers the following monologue.
It means more to me than anybody else in the world. I’ve only done two albums in 10 years. That’s the way I really look at it. What does the next decade mean for me? I am the one who sits and is obsessive about it before you even hear it. As close as I get to it, I dunno if I can physically torture myself, year in and year out, and expect it to fulfill me the way that it does and the way that it is now. I don’t want to put out anything that I feel is something I don’t love. You just don’t get that everyday. You have to wait for it.
He then stops in front of a microphone, puts on the headphones and says, “I’m ready.”
So are we.
Whoa. What a rush! What a way to make an entrance. JT is going to reclaim his pop music throne.
Stay tuned for the next three days, PopCrushers!
