Many fans are still unconvinced by this change of direction.
Justin Timberlake might be from Memphis, Tennessee, but he's made a career out of the pop industry that has been very much apart from his country roots. This year, however, he plans to return to his origins with a new musical direction on his new album 'Man of the Woods'.

The 36-year-old 'Can't Stop The Feeling' hitmaker has decided to strip down his sound for a more country vibe on his upcoming fifth album, while still maintaining a large team of producers such as Pharrell Williams, The Neptunes, Timbaland and Danja, of course.

He's the mystery popstar who provided guest vocals.
Dave Grohl of Foo Fighters has opened up about their mystery collaborator on their forthcoming album 'Concrete And Gold'. Having previously teased that it was a huge popstar, he has finally admitted that Justin Timberlake lent his vocals to one track on the new record.
Foo Fighters to release new album 'Concrete and Gold'
The 36-year-old singer didn't have more lyrics than 'la la la' on the title track, but the collaboration came about when he was hanging out with the band in between recording sessions at L.A.'s EastWest studios. It was really a last minute decision for the group.

Max Martin, Justin Timberlake and Karl Johan Schuster at the 89th Annual Academy Awards (Oscars 2017) held at the Dolby Theatre at the Hollywood & Highland Center - Los Angeles, California, United States - Sunday 26th February 2017
Almost pathologically buoyant, this brightly colourful animated comedy is so cheeky that it's impossible to dislike. The plot may be thin, and the wackiness a bit too full-on, but every moment is packed with smart verbal and visual jokes. This rapid-fire energy keeps us laughing all the way through, while the lively song score has us humming along and wishing we could get up there and dance.
It's set in a garish fantasy world in which sweetly happy trolls are locked in a mortal battle with gloomy bergen who think the only way they can achieve happiness is to eat a troll. It's been 20 years since the trolls escaped to form a secret forest community, so they throw a party to celebrate. Led by Princess Poppy (Anna Kendrick), the festivities feature so much music, glitter and hugging that the bergen's Chef (Christine Baranski) spots their location. The paranoid troll Branch (Justin Timberlake) had warned that this might happen, and sure enough Chef sweeps in and grabs a handful of trolls to take back to bergen King Gristle (Christopher Mintz-Plasse). Feeling responsible, Poppy sets out on a quest to rescue them, and Branch grudgingly accompanies her. They also get help from the lovelorn bergen scullery maid Bridget (Zooey Deschanel).
There isn't a moment in this story that carries even a hint of actual suspense, but the action scenes are still exhilaratingly madcap, and the darker moments along the way generate proper emotion. Thankfully, the lesson is so painfully obvious (you don't need to eat a troll to be happy!) that the filmmakers don't bother hammering it in. Instead, they fill every scene with deranged wit, ridiculous gags and lively character detail.

We interrupt your Monday to bring you ADORABLE BABY PICTURES.
As a general rule, all babies are adorable, but not all babies get their first pictures published on twenty different news outlets. Then again, Silas Randall Timberlake isn’t just any baby – he’s the progeny of Jessica Biel and Justin Timberlake, which makes him super adorable and super over-exposed.
Just when you thought this family could not get any cuter.
The couple posted the first snap of the baby themselves, instead of taking the “sell to People for a few million” route. The picture shows Jessica Biel holding little Silas, who is all decked out in his teeny tiny Memphis Grizzlies jersey. He’s sporting what we’ll call the “sleepy yawning smush” face. It’s all kinds of adorable.

Taylor Swift lands dream duet with Madonna, and Rihanna stuns in vibrant Versace.
The 2015 iHeartRadio Music Awards saw some pretty epic moments this weekend, and some of the most hotly anticipated performances of the year. The top prize of 2015 iHeartRadio Innovator Award went to Justin Timberlake, but he wasn't the biggest winner of the night...
Apart from winning three accolades - for Artist of the Year, Song of the Year and Best Lyrics - Taylor Swift was winning in many other ways. She's been gushing to everyone who'll listen recently about Queen of Pop Madonna apparently praising her music in an interview, but the 'Blank Space' singer landed the chance to perform with her idol as she and her guitar joined the diva on stage for a rendition of Madonna's new single 'Ghosttown', taken from recently released thirteenth album 'Rebel Heart'.
The 34-year-old singer and his pregnant wife are quickly becoming the most adorable couple in showbiz.

I love you like crazy! --Your Huz."
A 90s kid's dream Valentine's - the guys of N Sync and The Backstreet Boys, all in one show.
Guys. N Sync reunion. It happened. As with most classic pop culture moments, it happened during an episode of SNL. And the Backstreet Boys were there too. It wasn’t a coincidence either, as Valentine’s Day marked SNL’s 40th anniversary episode, so they had to make it a bit more special.
Who even needs a Valentine, when you've got the full line-up of N Sync together again.
The N Sync guys tweeted about their appearance earlier in the day, from their official account: "'Together again...Gee, it's good to be together again' #SNL40.”
