Roots drummer/Timberlake DJ drops hint via message board post
Justin Timberlake's "20/20 Experience" hasn't even hit shelves and there are already rumors of another JT album coming in 2013.
Yesterday morning, Questlove, whose DJ set opened Timberlake's SXSW performance last night, posted in an Okayplayer.com forum, offering previously unheard news: "spoiler alert. 20/20 Vol 2 comes out in nov. (10 songs now.....10 songs later= 20 vision)"
He's referencing "The 20/20 Experience"'s track count, which contains 10 songs.
The rest of the post (made originally in reponse to a New York Times review of the new Timberlake album) doesn't offer any more clues, mostly applauding Timbaland's production on "The 20/20 Experience" for breaking the mold of contemporary R&B and pop music. But it wouldn't be at all surprising for Questlove for have inside info on Timberlake -- he spent the past week alongside the singer on "Late Night With Jimmy Fallon," where his band, the Roots, serve as house band. Prior to DJing Timberlake's SXSW show, he served as DJ at his first proper concert in five years, Feb. 2 in New Orleans.
There's been no comment from Timberlake or his label, RCA. What is known is that "The 20/20 Experience" is due to be released this Tuesday (March 19) and it's a good bet to move half a million units in its first week.
