New Single: Justin Timberlake – ‘Can’t Stop The Feeling’
Do we really need another pop star soundtrack single? Apparently so! Justin Timberlake has been put up to the job of curating the soundtrack for the Trolls movie and it seems like the collection is just about ready. With Justin and Max Martin behind the set’s first single, is ‘Can’t Stop The Feeling’ able to shake away that soundtrack single stigma?
Carrying on the throwback sound he pushed on ‘The 20/20 Experience’, Justin finds himself getting into the groove – a funk groove to be exact – on the first single from the Trolls soundtrack.
Is this on the level of recent soundtrack single hits (Pink, Ellie Goulding, The Weeknd, Pharrell)? No – it’s not the worst (‘Oh La La’ we’re looking at you), but it’s not the strongest. It’s somewhere in the middle. After all, this is a family friendly movie. The music has to be on the same level and match the film. At best, ‘Can’t Stop The Feeling’ is fine; but ultimately we have to file it as “forgettable”.
The good thing is Justin is slated for a Q4 release for his forthcoming album. We won’t have to wait too long to get new music from him.
