Justin Timberlake’s ‘Can’t Stop the Feeling’ now has an official music video. The upbeat, dance-friendly pop song from the soundtrack of the DreamWorks animated movie ‘Trolls’ was already christened the song of the summer and how it has debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100.
Justin Timberlake first introduced the song with a star-studded video featuring cast members of ‘Trolls’ including Gwen Stefani, James Corden, Anna Kendrick, Icona Pop, Ron Funches and others.
But as we quickly have discovered, that was just the buzz video, now the official music video had its premiere on YouTube and VEVO at midnight, the very same day that Billboard announced that the new song had debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100. Not only did this mark JT’s fifth single to debut at No. 1 on the chart, but it also marked his biggest sales week. It looks like our summer hit arrived early this year.
Justin Timberlake recently gave the debut television performance of the new song at the Eurovision Song Contest finale, pairing it up with his 2003 smash hit ‘Rock Your Body.’ The performance went viral in social media, generating even more excitement — and obviously sales as well.
Yes, there’s much excitement over the new song which also happens to be the first new music from JT since his 2013 two-part album ‘The 20/20 Experience.’
This immediately begs the question. Is there more music in the works besides that for the ‘Trolls’ soundtrack? He hinted as much in a a recent interview on On Air with Ryan Seacrest. He said, “We started working on the soundtrack and I just felt really inspired and it kind of worked its way in me to working on another record. [The album is] in such an infant stage right now, so I don’t have any plans [to release it yet].”
And there are still more hints! As E!News reports, he also spoke with Carson Daly on on 97.1 AMP Radio and said, “I’m not going to be shy about saying that working on this soundtrack has bled into working on some other stuff for myself.”
Elaborating, he added, “I kind of had been talking with Max [Martin] about maybe getting back into the studio just to get creative and then this project came up and so we just kind of jumped on and tackled it together and ended up writing this, in my opinion, like a banger.”
Yes, it’s a banger! The infectious song has been topping the charts all over the world in its first week of release. And as we await more exciting music from JT, we do, have, in the meantime an exciting music video to go along with it. Much like the star-studded version, this new video is a montage of people dancing — this time around, it’s a variety of “ordinary” people from a waitress to a sales rep at an electronic store to a young boy, and many others. There’s also a dance sequence that unites this disparate cast as they dance to the music underneath a freeway overpass. Throughout the skies are sunny summer skies.
