JT channels Prince in his funky, Timbaland and Danja-produced new tune.

Justin Timberlake’s new song “Filthy” has officially hit.

2018 is the year of JT. A day after New Year’s, Timberlake announced he had a new album titled Man of the Woods on the way, shared the earthy cover art and revealed his rollout plan includes four new songs and music videos – one out every week until the official release of the record.

The first MOTW taste is available now. It’s titled “Filthy,” a track co-produced by longtime collaborator Timbaland and Danja.

There’s also a music video for it shot by director Mark Romanek (“Can’t Stop The Feeling”). You can watch that here.

The song has major funk to it. “I know this ain’t the clean version / What you gonna do with all that meat?,” JT croons over Tim and Danja’s swag. “Cook it up to me and serve it / No question I want it.” Elsewhere, JT begs to be touched. “Put your dirty hands on me.” 

James Fauntleroy and Larrance Dopson co-wrote the track. Fauntleroy co-wrote six tracks from Rihanna’s fourth album Rated R and co-wrote almost every song off JT’s The 20/20 Experience. In 2014, Fauntleroy won the Grammy Award for Best R&B Song for co-writing “Pusher Love Girl” off that album. Dopson has worked with the likes of JT, Jay-Z, Kanye West, T.I. and Bruno Mars, among others.

There’s no question JT’s new tune channels some serious Prince, and that’s a refreshing change of pace in music right now. This could be me stanning right now, but I think JT changed the game with this one. Listen below:

    I like the song anyways lol i know it’ll be good performed live. i’m just not fully supporting because i’m scared he’ll pull a LEMONADE and have a good first single with a snoozefest album
