So, after an excruciatingly long hiatus from the world of music (and an extended foray into mostly generic romantic comedies), Justin Timberlake brought his sophisticated and sorely missed blend of pop music and silky smooth soul back to the world with his new album (and smash hit), The 20/20 Experience. We got our first taste of the album several months ago when he dropped “Suit & Tie,” (his first new song in years), and expectations were understandably high for the new album when it finally dropped. Considering it received the “Best New Music” designation from Pitchfork, it should come as no surprise just how great this album is. Along with Charli XCX’s debut record and the new Fiction family album, it’s easily been one of my favorite albums of the year so far. There were a lot of great choices to pick from this album for my Song of the Day, but I went with “Strawberry Bubblegum” which has been an early favorite from the record along with “Mirrors.” Enjoy.
