After nearly a six-year drought in the music industry, Justin Timberlake returns into the music mainstream with the release of his new album, “The 20/20 Experience.”

Spending three consecutive weeks at #1 of the Top 100 Billboards Chart, it has already sold 1.4 million copies.

Timberlake steps into a whole different perspective in this album, going from being the teen sensation he once was in NSYNC, to being more mature. The album includes R&B with a twist of Frank Sinatra type music.

Timberlake told “Rolling Stone Magazine” he is excited to return to music after devoting himself full time to acting for six years. According to “Rolling Stone Magazine,” Timberlake added, he decided to return to the music industry not only because of the fans, but for himself.
Before Timberlake came out with “The 20/20 Experience,” he sold only two major albums in his nine – year solo career, “Justified” (2004) and “Future Sex/Love Sounds” (2006), both selling a total of 17 million albums worldwide.
After the release of his second album, Timberlake decided to start an acting career.
Timberlake made his movie debut in “Alpha Dog” which was released in 2006. Timberlake later went on to movies like “Black Snake Moan” (2007), “The Social Network” (2010) and “In Time” (2011).
Timberlake has also hosted “Saturday Night Live” five times.

According to “Rolling Stone Magazine,” Timberlake said he’s now going to devote himself part time in the music industry where he plans to produce more albums and get a fresh start back into music.
Timberlake’s New Album, “The 20/20 Experience” is a RCA Record Produced Album in the Neo soul genre now available for $12 and includes songs like “Suit and Tie,” “Mirrors” and “Pusher Love Girl.”
