It's hard to believe it has been five years since Justin Timberlake released his stellar 'FutureSexLoveSounds' album. He is long overdue for some new stuff, but in the meantime all we have is this (and his first, 'Justified') to listen to and enjoy. Yesterday I flipped around my iPod and came across my folder for Justin and hit play, enjoying the entire album for the first time in a long time and reminding myself what a classic it is. I knew I had to put one of his songs here as "Song of the Day" today.
'What Goes Around...Comes Around' is one of those songs that tells a story of love and loss and its ultimate message is a lesson in good old karma. The video complements the soulful, rhythmic masterpiece perfectly, giving us a visual of the songs well-written lyrics. As with most of the tunes on 'FutureSexLoveSound,' this one was produced by Timbaland, whose essence is felt throughout the piece, especially as it builds to its dramatic finale, with rap overlays and a gospel choir working their way towards an unfortunate finish for the lady who did Justin wrong.
Enjoy this authentically great, heartfelt song...
