Timberlake last released an album in September 2013 with the second volume of ‘The 20/20 Experience‘. In 2016, he released the single ‘Can’t Stop The Feeling!’, which featured on the soundtrack for the movie Trolls. The singer also provided the voice of the character Branch in the film.
Meanwhile, Timberlake faced a backlash after being announced as the 2018 Super Bowl halftime performer. Some people were disappointed the singer had been booked again at the prestigious event after his 2004 performance became notorious for the moment which saw him accidentally rip Janet Jackson’s top to expose her nipples.
Posting on Twitter, many complained about the lack of recognition for Jackson, who had been forced to film an apology for the initial incident.
Journalist Ernest Owens wrote: “Still ensuring white privilege remains in style in 2017. Meanwhile, Janet Jackson is still left in the cold. My only request is that you don’t perform any of the music inspired by her brother or any Black artist. You love our culture, but disrespect our people.”
