Questlove hints that a new Timberlake album is on the way
End of this year
It’s been close to seven years since Justin Timberlake brought sexy back, but it looks like the singer has no intentions of waiting that long to give fans a follow-up to his latest album.
The Roots’ Questlove, who spent quality time with JT during “Late Night with Jimmy Fallon’s” recent “Timberweek,” said via Okayplayer to expect the second volume of “The 20/20 Experience” later this year:
“Spoiler alert. 20/20 Vol 2 comes out in nov. (10 songs now.....10 songs later= 20 vision),” he wrote, via RollingStone.com.
Timberlake’s “The 20/20 Experience,” which comes out this week, was made available on March 11 as a free stream on iTunes. The 10-track record has received mostly positive reviews—and Timberlake has at least one fan in Questlove.
“[I] admire the b***s it took to make this record,” the musician said.

With his new single selling well, Justin Timberlake is easing back into performing.
The actor/musician will be a special guest at DirecTV’s pre-Super Bowl “Super Saturday Night” event on Sunday, which will be co-hosted by Mark Cuban.
It’s unknown what Timberlake will perform, but we’re guessing his new song with Jay-Z, “Suit & Tie,” is up for consideration. Questlove will also be on deck to keep the crowd grooving.

The rumored joint tour between Justin Timberlake and Jay-Z is officially happening.
The pair announced the 12-stop event, called "Legends of the Summer," on Friday. Their trek will begin in Toronto, ON on July 17 and wind down in Miami, FL on August 16.
Given that Timberlake's anticipated album "The 20/20 Experience" arrives March 19, we'd expect to hear plenty from that disc, including the single that features Jay-Z, "Suit & Tie."
