It’s a great week for fans of former boy bands and pop starlets. After Justin Timberlake’s triumphant return to the mic at last Sunday’s Grammys, new videos are out from him and Britney Spears in what appears to be a J.T./Brit-Brit Valentine’s Day Smackdown. Plus, we have the latest on music from New Kids on the Block and more teen heartthrob alumni.
Justin Timberlake’s The 20/20 Experience, is the *NSYNCer’s first album since Futuresex/Lovesounds in 2006 and comes out on March 19. He performed the first single, “Suit & Tie,” with a surprise cameo appearance by Jay-Z at the Grammys. The glossy, black-and-white video premiered Valentine’s Day.
Fall Out Boy shocked everyone this year by announcing a new single, “My Songs Know What You Did In The Dark (Light ‘Em Up),” on Feb. 4. Save Rock And Roll, their first album since 2008’s Folie a Deux was due out on May 7. But surprise! The gang announced this week on “Jimmy Kimmel Live!,” that they were pushing the date up to April 15/16.
New Kids on the Block are dancing closer to the release of their brand-new studio album, 10, on April 2. It coincides with a tour featuring reunited boy-banders 98 Degrees and Boyz II Men.
Britney Spears wasn’t supposed to debut the urban remix video of her new single with Will.i.am, “Scream & Shout,” featuring Diddy, Hit-Boy, Waka Flocka and Lil Wayne, till Friday on BET’s “106th and Park.” But surprise! It was “leaked” a day early on Valentine’s Day to take on Justin’s “Suit & Tie.” Coincidence? Hmmm.
