Timbaland, Danja and Justin Timberlake Reunite on New Track “Filthy”
Timbaland and Danja bring Justin Timberlake back in style on the new track “Filthy.” JT comes through with the new video for the single, as promised, having only announced the new track a couple days ago.
In the Mark Romanek-directed visual, Justin channels his inner Steve Jobs as he takes center stage at the Pan-Asian Deep Learning Conference in the distant future of 2028 and debuts a new robot. The advanced A.I. pulls off a bevy of dance moves while being remotely manipulated by Justin.
The Virginia beat makers provide a fitting soundscape for the single, as they deploy out of this world synths with pulsating 808s. "Haters gon' say it's fake/So real," Justin sings on the chorus.
The trio of JT, Timbo and Danja come with a storied past, as Tim and Danja both worked extensively on Justin’s 2006 album FutureSex/LoveSounds. The duo produced smash hits like “My Love” featuring T.I., “SexyBack,” “Until the End of Time” and the title track. All three artists co-wrote the new single, “Filthy,” along with James Fauntleroy and Larrance Dopson.
This may not be the only collab we get from the artists in the near future. Justin has a big rollout planned for his upcoming album, Man of the Woods, which includes putting out three more videos before the album drops on Feb. 2. The pop star will perform at the Pepsi Super Bowl LII Halftime Show, two days later, on Sun., Feb. 4. Man of the Woods is Justin’s first album since 2013’s The 20/20 Experience, which hosted the JAY-Z-assisted smash, “Suit & Tie.”
