Justin Timberlake’s new Instagram video is a lot to digest.

Justin Timberlake’s new Instagram video is a lot to digest.

First order of business? Happy birthday, JT! The pop star turns 37-years-old today (Jan. 31).

Next, the singer teased a bit of a new song in the clip – it’s barely audible, but a never-before-heard tune is playing in the background. I’ll take what I can get.

Alright, now for the meat of the post (“Filthy” reference). JT has heard the Internet’s innumerable complaints about a lack of cohesion with the woods/country concept he first teased and what we’ve been given. His lead single and “Supplies” were hard-hitting Timbaland x Neptunes crafted-beats with futuristic visuals. That’s when the WWW began to turn on him. It just didn’t add up.

The pop star took to Instagram to clear the air: his album is named Man of the Woods because his son’s name, Silas, means “of the woods.”

“Stop telling me I’m making country album,” he said.

You heard the man!

On a side note… I am worried about his impending Super Bowl Halftime Show backlash. A storm is coming.


I feel like @djkhaled right now!!! NEW SONG ALERT! Birthday vibes! Thanks everybody for the bday love!

  1. What the….. As if people were thinking that JUST because of the name of the album. What about all those short videos “documenting” the process? They are country AF. And he never mentioned his son’s name in relation to the album before. And the first TWO singles were absolutely futuristic. SO I think he’s either totally confused about the direction of his new record, or we just have to shut up and be patient and wait until eeeeeverything rolls out…..

  2. I love Justin. Im a big fan. But I think he is a bit confused with the direction of the album. He said on the making of the supplies song that it had a country melody. Receipts: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VtGr3aZoH0U
    lol. And to me almost all the titles of the songs with a few exceptions sound country to me, so Im confused as well lmao. Having said that Im not a huge fan of country myself, so I’m low key glad he said his album isnt country (despite all the promo claiming otherwise) I guess we will have to listen to the full thing to make a proper judgement.
