While responding to criticism of Justin Timberlake‘s new album The 20/20 Experience, Questlove of The Roots spilled the beans on JT‘s follow-up project, The 20/20 Experience 2.
Questlove apparently seen Justin‘s vision and knows his release schedule. Didn’t get enough Justin on The 20/20 Experience? Then hopefully you get enough of him in November.
According to Questlove, this album hitting stores Tuesday is only half of Justin‘s vision. Questlove says we’re getting 10 songs now and 10 songs in November when The 20/20 Experience 2 is released.
Questlove broke the news on his OkayPlayer forum when responding to NY Times writer Jon Caramanica‘s criticism of the album.
See what Questlove had to say about the project after the break.
Questlove’s Response To The NY Times Review Of Justin Timberlake’s 20/20 Experience:
its constructive criticism
i will say the album is OVERLY ambitious. like a LOT of ideas crammed into one.
spoiler alert. 20/20 Vol 2 comes out in nov. (10 songs now…..10 songs later= 20 vision)
i admire the balls it took to make this record. cause he coulda easily urshurd his work in and made diplo his teddy riley to 20/20′s dangerous instead of sticking with timb’s Quincy.
i like throwback Timb. (he played me songs out of order and off both records so i don’t know what made the final cut) so i was shocked he wasn’t 4 on the flooring it like the timb of 2005 was doing. like these joints were straight up missy/magoo timb and justin said he wanted timb to “get back in his real zone” even if it meant alienating the tweens born after 86 who never ever heard of the sly slick and wicked
i mean suit and tie is the MOST UNLIKELY james brown production reference

For starters, the 20/20 experience vol 1 is his best album to date and I love his other albums.
I was hoping for more JT before 6 years from now, so this is excellent news! I think I love Jessica Biel a lot more now that she is inspiring him to release so much music!
I would say I was bummed at only 10 tracks (well 12 if you count Target) but after hearing they were average 7 mins each, I was intrigued. After listening numerous times, his bold style translates into the best complete album released in a very long time, no “filler” tracks.
JT keep doing you and I promise you will always be the best, you have an amazing personality and it shines with every new track. Music is falling apart with JT and I hope he and Timbaland bring it back, and they are well on their way.

That should read “Music is falling apart without JT and I hope he and Timbaland bring it back….”
