I’m a rock/rap type who hated NSYNC with a raging passion, but the motherfucker Justin Timberlake can straight up sing. I just recently bought his album and I think it’s pretty fucking sick.
I’ve never heard a white man who sounds like that- he takes white sounds and makes them black. Obviously he got some help from Timbaland, but Timbaland couldn’t do that with just any artist, and plenty of other people have sounded like shit on great Timbaland tracks.
In this case you have some of the best Timbaland tracks ever produced and the singer almost overshadows the producer. Also, I’m pretty sure that I would have a crush on him if I was a chick. You don’t need outstanding muscularity when you sound like that. He fully deserves to be ploughing Jessica Biel right now.
Hate all you want, but you will never pull half as much grade A ass as Justin did by the time he was 20.
EDIT: When I say Justin Timberlake > all I’m talking about current mainstream pop/hiphop/R&B singers, not everyone across the whole musical spectrum.
