Justin Timberlake Drops "Filthy" Video, Channels Steve Jobs


Justin Timberlake released the lead single to his fourth studio album earlier this morning titled "Filthy".

The four-minute clip begins with the "Sexy Back" singer facing an enthusiastic crowd at a Pan-Asian Deep Learning Conference in Malaysia set 10 years from now.

"Filthy" will be followed by three new songs and visuals released weekly starting January 18, while the 16-track album is due February 2, two days before Timberlake performs at the Super Bowl LII Halftime Show on February 4.

"Filthy" began trending on Twitter soon after the track and its music video dropped at midnight, as the pop superstar's followers turned it up en masse.

Mark Romanek directed the video.

He worked with his frequent collaborators Timbaland and Pharrell (via The Neptunes) on the album, in addition to Alicia Keys and Chris Stapleton.
