That Justin Timberlake Meme You’ve Been Ignoring? Continue.

January 3, 2011

Over the holidays, a supposed new Justin Timberlake and Neptunes track had been circulating, and both the closeted and open fans of JT let loose on spreading the love for the ex-N*Syncer.  Unfortunately, it wasn’t him on the track.

The song is the work of a Danish artist named Rasmus Thude. Justin’s representatives were not initially contacted to fact check the validity of these reports or if the song was, in fact, his.

Well, I’m sure Thude is happy to have gotten hundreds of thousands of listens, regardless.  So much so, I wonder: was the mistake intentional?  Or just the impulsive power of internet wildfires spreading during national holidays when folks are not paying as close attention?   Perhaps Justin Timberlake leaked it himself to see how the world would respond to him coming back to the music, and hopefully he got the answer he needed.

    Oh how incredibly awkward for all parties involved. But the important lesson is to fact check, kids!

      I would like to know if it’s really the Neptunes or if the producer is faking too.
