The forces of the pop-music universe aligned on Thursday (March 17) afternoon, and the world might soon experience new music from Justin Timberlake and Pharrell. That's correct, Timberlake posted to Instagram a picture of himself casually hanging in the studio with the producer/rapper/singer/multi-talent, who sat behind the production boards.
This could indeed be fortuitous for anyone—and that means everyone—familiar with Timberlake's 2002 debut Justified, which Pharrell largely co-wrote and produced:
Complex notes rather astutely that the duo is probably working on music for the upcoming Dreamworks Animation film Trolls. The movie's soundtrack sees JT executive produce and perform original music. Nevertheless, many people are probably just as hyped as Tyler the Creator, who tweeted a string of expletives when he heard the news.
