By Ishaba Haque

 

After a 7 year break from music, Justin Timberlake has made his comeback. And what a comeback it is. Timberlake’s sophomore album, Grammy winning, FutureSex/LoveSounds created quite the impact back in 2006. It revolutionized pop music and created a new eccentric sound of music that still resonates with people. His number one single “SexyBack” did exactly what the title suggests. It brought sexy back and it brought JT back.

Concert: Tyler, the Creator

by Alex Green
