The new JT is equal parts expected and surprising.


Justin Timberlake is back to make his fans dance over the summer, with his latest loosie entitled "Soulmate." This song is significant as it acts as a follow-up to Man Of The Woods, a project whose cumulative reception was unfortunately ambivalent.

The new song has a beach vibe, as reflected by its cover art. It is a catchy pop tune about love, akin to most of Timberlake's repertoire. He sings about intertwining souls for a night of intimacy. The production employs hints of Caribbean flair, though the dance track can't be considered a complete crossover. It's like a modern uptempo version of Lionel Richie's "All Night Long." Or not. Let us know if this comparison sticks. Either way, its an indication of the artist's curving his musical trajectory away from the country thing he was going for with Man of The Woods. A collaboration with Drake might be in order after this track, most likely cementing the shift away from his last sonic palette.

Quotable Lyrics

Whatever you believe in could be real
'Cause I believe in miracles
So please right now, you and me right now
We could live our dreams right now
First, lay down
