In a candid conversation with Zane Lowe on Apple Music 1, Timberlake opened up about his latest project. “I think there are moments that are incredibly honest, but, also, there’s a lot of fun on this album,” he shared. His enthusiasm for the project shines through, hinting at a mix of introspective lyrics and upbeat melodies that promise to captivate listeners.

A Special Appearance on Saturday Night Live

This weekend, Timberlake adds another feather to his cap with a performance on “Saturday Night Live,” hosted by Dakota Johnson. While he toyed with the idea of hosting, Timberlake decided to focus on showcasing his new music. “This album is really special to me in a different, different way,” he explained. Despite not hosting, Timberlake anticipates participating in a sketch or two, given his long-standing history with the show. “SNL, for me, in any capacity. I’ve hosted five, but I don’t even know how many times I’ve been on the show,” he reflected.
