After releasing “Can’t Stop the Feeling!” last week, Justin Timberlake announced that he is working on a new album.
There’s no release date set yet, but JT is back in the studio with his longtime collaborators Timbaland and Pharrell Williams. During a recent slip up on BBC Radio 1Xtra in London, he also revealed that he’s working with Abel XO a.k.a The Weeknd!
“Abel and I have been talking,” he said. “We’ve been talking about doing a collab. He’s working on an album. I don’t know if I was supposed to say that. Did I just mess up something? He’s always in the studio anyway. We’ve talked about doing something together.”
Timberlake also confirmed that The Weeknd is in the studio working on the follow-up to his Grammy award-winning album, Beauty Behind The Madness.
And while we wait for the upcoming albums from both of the very talented crooners, JT has been on the songwriting and producing track with the upcoming film Trolls. The married father of one mentioned that he has written songs for Ariana Grande and Gwen Stefani that will be included on the soundtrack and one may even end up as a duet.

And huge congrats to Justin as “Can’t Stop the Feeling!” just became the most added song, receiving commitment from 186 Top 40 radio stations across the country. That’s a huge feat for Timberlake and he’s excited about it!
