Day Six of My Week with Justin Timberlake and today it is 'Take Back the Night'.
Take Back the Night was released in 2013, and it was from his album of the same year, The 20/20 Experience - 2 of 2.
This track wasn't one of JT's highest charting, but its one of my personal favourites, hence choosing it for my week with JT. It reached a modest 22 in the UK charts.
This is a laid back, R&B, kind of Michael Jackson style number. Its classic Justin - just enough funk and sass to make it fun and not dull. His vocals would do credit to MJ - effortless, with just a little swagger. It could easily be overdone, but his stylish coolness makes it work.
The video is the same as the song makes you imagine. Justin looking stylish, effortlessly cool and just plain cool. He dances on the street, he goes to a club - he looks sexy, he sounds sexy.
Yes, this was a modest hit. Yes, its not new, its not ground breaking, it sounds like what it is - a JT song. Is that a bad thing? No, of course its not. Sometimes, its ok to just be who you are and give us what we expect.
I love this track. Let me know what you think. One more track to go and then our week with the lovely Justin Timberlake will be over.
