The new song and video dropped Friday
Video features his "Trolls" costars
If Friday had a sound, it would be Justin Timberlake’s “Can’t Stop the Feeling.”
So it makes sense that the singer would drop his new song and video on that day. Already it’s being bandied about as the possible song of the summer.
“Can’t Stop the Feeling” mixes business with Timberlake’s business pleasure as it’s not only his new single, but also featured on the soundtrack of the animated movie “Trolls,” in which he voices the character Branch.
So it made sense for the singer to get a little help from his costars James Corden, Anna Kendrick, Gwen Stefani, Kunal Nayyar, Ron Funches – as well as Caroline Hjelt and Aino Jawo of Icona Pop for the music video.
In it, the group can be seen getting a first listen to the song in various locations as they dance and sing along.
Fans have been eagerly awaiting new music from Timberlake, whose last project was the second half of his “The 20/20 Experience” in 2013. He had earlier teased the release on social media with #CantStopTheFeeling.
On Friday, Twitter lit up with reviews, calling the new tune everything from “infectious” to the “ultimate soul train line song.”
In March, Timberlake posted a photo of himself in the studio with super producer and “Happy” singer Pharrell, which got fans excited for the possibility of new music.
