Let the hype for Justin Timberlake’s The 20/20 Experience sequel officially begin!
Today, the blue-eyed soul star dropped the visuals for his new record “Take Back The Night,” the first single lifted from his upcoming The 20/20 Experience – 2 of 2 album.
When Timberlake laid the vocals for the groovy track, produced by Timberland, it’s obvious that he channeled his inner Michael Jackson — most likely from the King of Pop’s Off The Wall days. The video shows the singer dancing to the old-funk sound on the streets of New York City and live onstage.
The clip’s release was accompanied by an online scavenger hunt, where fans hod to tweet out a URL to unlock snapshots from the five-minute video.
Part two of The 20/20 Experience is scheduled to hit stores on September 30. Part one, which was released in March and included hits like “Suit & Tie” and “Mirrors,” remains the best-selling album of 2013.
