Justin Timberlake is back, but his new single ‘Filthy’ isn’t going down well with fans.

The singer, who last released an album in 2013, dropped the track today, but the reaction so far has been underwhelming.

Many fans have been complaining on social media that they were ‘disappointed’ and described the funk track as ‘annoying’.

Timberlake co-wrote the track with Timbaland, Danja, James Fauntleroy and Lawrence Dopson.

The song was co-produced by Timberlake, Timbaland and Danja while Timberlake encouraged listeners on Twitter to play it ‘very loud’.

The track harks back to the skewered beats, futuristic R&B and experimental pop hooks of his 2006 album FutureSex/LoveSounds.

While some considered it a bold move by a star keen to keep pushing himself, others said they couldn’t even listen to the whole track and it wasn’t on a par with his hit ‘SexyBack’.

But some fans have defended the track and claimed the haters will soon be eating their words:



Timberlake also released a video to accompany the song and stars as a Steve Jobs character in the clip, who controls a dancing robot with his own moves backstage at a tech conference.

He announced earlier this week that he will be dropping his new album Man of the Woods on February 2, two days before he performs at the Super Bowl half-time show.


In a video announcing the upcoming LP, he said: ‘This album is really inspired by my son, my wife, my family, but more so than any other album I’ve ever written, where I’m from – it’s personal’.
