Back in undergraduate, I had a major chip on my shoulder when it came to trendy and popular things. My reasoning was that if it’s popular, it can’t possibly be any good. I’ve mellowed (a bit) since then, but I’m still very distrustful of mega-popular things, partially because I often find myself out of step with pop culture and partially because I try to avoid herd mentality whenever possible.
That being said, there is some stuff that is both popular and good, and my attitude often precludes me from enjoying it until it’s too late in the game. A friend recommended FutureSex/LoveSounds to me, and I decided that I trusted her enough to give it a try. I wasn’t really into the album so much, but I was impressed with the depth and breath of music on the album. It, along with his guest spots on Saturday Night Live turned me around on Justin Timberlake.
While this song is from a different album, it’s still a good tune, and gets people jammin’ when I play it. I hope you enjoy it!
Let me know what you think!
