More Questlove from this weekend: the Roots drummer was posting away over on Okayplayer (which he co-founded) and kind of implied that Justin Timberlake has a second album coming in 2013. The relevant quote: “spoiler alert. 20/20 Vol 2 comes out in nov. (10 songs now…..10 songs later= 20 vision)” It is hard to argue with that math. (Plus, JT says he and Jay-Z worked on a bunch of songs that didn’t make the first cut.) While we’re on the subject of Questlove and JT, here is his defense of “Suit and Tie”: “i mean suit and tie is the MOST UNLIKELY james brown production reference but of course unless you got a master degree in soul-ology this won’t mean shit to you.” There’s some stuff about how younger generations might not get it, but JT didn’t want to make an album for 18-year-olds. Full post is here; see you in November for Round Two.
