Justin Timberlake is een Amerikaanse zanger.



Justin werd bekend als de zanger van boyband 'N Sync. Deze band was actief en succesvol van 1995 tot 2002.

In 2002 bracht Justin zijn eerste soloalbum uit: Justified. Van deze plaat zijn wereldwijd tot op heden ruim 7 miljoen exemplaren verkocht. Van zijn tweede album 'FutureSex/LoveSounds' (2006) zijn er zelfs al 9 miljoen verkocht.



Met zijn 14e notering in de Top 40, 4 Minutes en samen met Madonna, scoort hij zijn eerste nummer 1-hit.

In 2014 staat Timberlake voor de 22e keer in de Top 40 met Not A Bad Thing. Ook is hij te horen op Love Never Felt So Good van Michael Jackson. Het nummer verschijnt naar aanleiding van diens album, Xscape, dat vijf jaar na zijn dood verschijnt.


In 2016 produceert hij de soundtrack voor de film Trolls met daarop ook het nummer Can't Stop The Feeling! dat 8 weken op nummer 1 staat. Het nummer is zo succesvol dat het terecht komt bij de 100 grootste hits die ooit in de Top 40 hebben gestaan.

In februari van 2018 verschijnt het nieuwe album van Timberlake, Man Of The Woods. Dat album verschijnt enkele dagen voordat hij de pauzeshow verzorgt van de Super Bowl. Als voorloper van het album brengt hij de track Filthy uit. Vrij snel worden dan ook de tracks Supplies en Say Something (met Chris Stapleton) uitgebracht. Die laatste wordt door Radio 538 uitgeroepen tot Alarmschijf. Het blijft vooralsnog de enige single van zijn album als hij in juli de track Soulmate uitbrengt.


Songtekst

You were my sun
You were my earth
But you didn't know all the ways I loved you, no
So you took a chance
And made other plans
But I bet you didn't think that they would come crashing down, no

You don't have to say, what you did,
I already know, I found out from him
Now there's just no chance, for you and me, there'll never be
And don't it make you sad about it

You told me you loved me
Why did you leave me, all alone
Now you tell me you need me
When you call me, on the phone
Girl I refuse, you must have me confused
With some other guy
Your bridges were burned, and now it's your turn
To cry, cry me a river
Cry me a river-er
Cry me a river
Cry me a river-er, yea yea

I know that they say
That somethings are better left unsaid
It wasn't like you only talked to him and you know it
(Don't act like you don't know it)
All of these things people told me
Keep messing with my head
(Messing with my head)
You should've picked honesty
Then you may not have blown it
(Yea..)

You don't have to say, what you did,
(Don't have to say, what you did)
I already know, I found out from him
(I already know, uh)
Now there's just no chance, for you and me, there'll never be
(No chance, you and me)
And don't it make you sad about it

You told me you loved me
Why did you leave me, all alone
(All alone)
Now you tell me you need me
When you call me, on the phone
(When you call me on the phone)
Girl I refuse, you must have me confused
With some other guy
(I'm not like them baby)
Your bridges were burned, and now it's your turn
(It's your turn)
To cry, cry me a river
(Go on and just)
Cry me a river-er
(Go on and just)
Cry me a river
(Baby go on and just)
Cry me a river-er, yea yea

Oh
(Oh)
The damage is done
So I guess I be leaving
Oh
(Oh)
The damage is done
So I guess I be leaving
Oh
(Oh)
The damage is done
So I guess I be leaving
Oh
(Oh)
The damage is done
So I guess I be... leaving

You don't have to say, what you did,
(Don't have to say, what you did)
I already know, I found out from him
(I already know, uh)
Now there's just no chance, for you and me, there'll never be
(No chance, you and me)
And don't it make you sad about it

Cry me a river
(Go on and just)
Cry me a river-er
(Baby go on and just)
Cry me a river
(You can go on and just)
Cry me a river-er, yea yea

Cry me a river
(Baby go on and just)
Cry me a river-er
(Go on and just)
Cry me a river
(Cause I've already cried)
Cry me a river-er, yea yea
(Ain't gonna cry no more, yea-yea)

Cry me a river
Cry me a river, oh
Cry me a river, oh
Cry me a river, oh

Cry me a river, oh
(Cry me, cry me)
Cry me a river, oh
(Cry me, cry me)
Cry me a river, oh
(Cry me, cry me)
Cry me a river, oh
(Cry me, cry me)

Cry me a river, oh
(Cry me, cry me)
Cry me a river, oh
(Cry me, cry me)
Cry me a river
(Cry me, cry me)
