Justin Timberlake has followed up the interesting “Filthy” with a new track and visual for “Supplies” — and (outside of a promo trailer) we haven’t seen any woods/Country vibe yet.
With that said, the “Supplies” clip is JT at his most socially and politically aware it seems: between a bunch of television screens, rallies and protests, viewers are able to see instances of #MeToo and sexual assault, the KKK, Freddie Gray and racism/police brutality, corruption and more — all over production from Pharrell Williams. Deep stuff.
Check out the Dave Meyers-directed offering above and pre-order Man Of The Woods via iTunes. In related news: Justin Timberlake recently revealed to Beats 1’s Zane Lowe why it took 16 years for him and Skateboard P to collaborate again…it was because of Jive’s screwed of treatment of former labelmates Clipse:
I don’t know what went on with their deal, but I do remember that Pharrell was very adamant about getting them out of the deal… So it became — from my understanding, you know — it became challenging for him to work with any Jive artist at that point.
He also spoke on the infamous Super Bowl debacle with Janet Jackson…you can watch that here.
