Justin Timberlake returns to music. He had not published new material since 2018, the year he released his last studio album. Man of the woods, but last Friday, January 19, he presented to his fans the preview of his future album, which will be titled Everything I thought it was.

The singer already left some clues on his Instagram profile after publishing a photo with the album’s initials and in which he himself appeared on a poster for “Lost. Have you seen this man? Information needed.”

He presented the song at the only concert he gave in his native Memphis. “So if I get jealous, I can’t help it, I want every bit of you, I guess I’m selfish. “It’s bad for my mental, but I can’t fight it.”can be heard in the chorus of the R&B-inspired song.
