Justin Timberlake Is a Steve Jobs Look-Alike in “Filthy” Music Video
Justin Timberlake is bringing sexy back in 2018.
Shortly after revealing that he will release a brand-new album, titled Man of the Woods, this year, the “Mirrors” hitmaker served up an edgy new sound and aesthetic, courtesy of his latest track, “Filthy,” and its accompanying music video early Friday morning.
While channeling late Apple CEO Steve Jobs in the clip, the “Cry Me a River” singer launched into the future in the Mark Romanek-directed video.
After he urged fans to play the new single “very loud” in teasers shared to Instagram, the 36-year-old shows off his slick dance moves while presenting his robot invention at a conference in Malaysia in the year 2028. Dressed in a black turtleneck with a pair of cool specs, the singer is behind the curtain, directing his dancing creation to the beat of the music during the course of the clip.
“Filthy” is just the tip of the iceberg, with the “Can’t Stop the Feeling!” star set to release three other videos, shot by separate directors, on a weekly basis, starting Jan. 18.
And, just days after Timberlake’s full album drops on Feb. 2, fans can expect to hear his new material when the actor headlines the Super Bowl LII halftime show on Feb. 4.
