After a great performance at the 55th Annual Grammy Awards, JT has proven to be a force to be reckoned with. The former frontman for the boy band sensation, ‘N Sync, has surpassed any skepticism and perception of life after a boy band.
We’ve seen it all before. Boy band is presented to the public. Girls go crazy. One member of the group get’s the most attention. Someone goes solo. Solo career soars. Former boy band members struggle to secure a lasting career. It happens all the time.
Many agree that JT was a dominant fixture in ‘N Sync and was destined to branch out on his own with a solo career. This really became evident when he co-wrote “Gone”, a Pop/R&B song that was featured on ‘N Sync’s third album, “Celebrity” and was released as a second single in 2001.
Timberlake wasn’t playing around. His debut solo album “Justified”, released in 2002, proved to be a huge departure from ‘N Sync’s previous persona. “Gone” may have been a prelude to Justin’s new music career path, however; some critics had a hard time accepting the change the music style until the singles “Cry Me A River” and “Rock Your Body” were released.
Followed by several hilarious appearances on SNL and venturing into films, JT showed no signs of slowing down. With the release of “Sexy Back”, from his second solo ablum, “Future Sex/Love Sounds”, Justin became one of the hottest artists in music. At this time, he really proved he wasn’t playing around.
Now with his third album, “The 20/20 Experience”, JT’s first single “Suit & Tie” featuring Jay-Z and produced by Timbaland, Justin has proven that he has a knack for creating something fresh and new. In an exclusive interview, “Justin Timberlake Opens Up” with two Grammy Camp alumni, Cameron Capers and Allison Spice, Justin reveals how his new album is the “best stuff I’ve ever done”.
