Justin Timberlake is one of the most high achieving pop phenomenons of the past three decades. In 1993 he helped relaunch the Mickey Mouse Club where he sang and danced alongside Rylan Gosling and other now luminaries. Then he broke records and sold over 70 million albums worldwide with *NSYNC. And if that weren’t enough, he launched an incredibly successful solo career in the early aughts where he found a musical soulmate in Timbaland who Justin's worked with in some capacity over the course of his six solo albums.

So with all that hard earned success behind him, it’s been interesting to see the online drubbing JT's taken the last couple of years. Curious about how he might respond musically, it turns out, his new album Everything I Thought It Was, is everything you’d hope to hear from JT including a surprise *NSYNC reunion.

On today’s episode Justin Richmond talks through Justin Timberlake’s new album with him as he dissects key tracks from it. JT also recalls how Micheal Jackson helped inspire his solo career, he breaks down the motivation behind each one of his solo albums, and he talks about why he felt now was the right time to reunite with his boy band brothers in ‘NSYNC. This episode was recorded at Amazon’s Studio126.

I even love the sound-alike bands. Well a purist Tony and I'm looking through you.


I'm Tony and I'm TJ and we host the Untitled Beatles podcast. It's a celebration of the fab for with us a couple of improv idiots.


Yeah, it's like hanging out backstage at a Chicago comedy club doing bits about the best band in the world.


Thank you. Now, TJ, would you say that we're like the Siskill and Ebert of Beatles? in the No. Captain and Tineel?


Tony, we're the Jimmy nickel and Kurt Claudio of Beatles podcast.


Oh, hey, I get to be Kurt Claudio.


No, you're the drummer.


I'm Kurt Claudio. Have any toast?

I'm excited to bring you our episode today with Justin Timberlake.


JT is a massive talent. Anytime Michael Jackson was asked about his


successors in pop stardom over the last decade of his life he'd mentioned two people he was proud of


that he felt carried the mantle the way he wanted to see it carried. Those two people


were Usher and our guest Justin Timberlake.


Justin has had a career as a singer on some level since 1992,


whereas he puts it on his new album,
