Justin Timberlake recently sat down with Variety, and revealed he’s been back in the studio working with Pharrell.The “Rock Your Body” collaborators will reunite on songs “with an eye on” Timberlake’s still un titled project.
The news follows an Instagram post from March, in which Timberlake hinted at the collab by posting a photo of the two in the studio together.
“Songwise, I think we’ve got a good solid six that are like, ‘Whoa, what was that? Play that again,’ says Justin in the interview.
Pharrell, also interviewed in the piece, notes that their creative process will home in on a more personal, emotionally transparent vibe:
“For the biggest pop stars in the world, the place where they have the most trouble is honesty. It’s hard for them to know that the beauty of a record, the sweetest spot in the song, is where they show vulnerability,” Pharrell explains, “And I think Justin is in the place where he’s mastering that right now.”
