A new album full of greatest hits from Justin Timberlake, everyone’s favorite boy band star turned pop star, is coming soon.
But there’s a catch—the album is made up entirely of lullabies. Yes, you read that right. Lullabies.
The new album, “Lullaby Renditions of Justin Timberlake,” will drop on August 18 (you can preorder on Amazon now) and will be made up entirely of a soothing blend of songs from the man who made frosted tips look… well, not good, but passable. Apparently even some NYSNC songs will feature on the album.
And honestly, it sounds kind of funny; even the album description pokes fun at the idea, saying:
“Does baby cry you a river when it’s time for bed? We’re bringing sleepy back with our tranquil, lullaby versions of Justin Timberlake. Rock your baby to this, and say, ‘bye bye bye’ to sleepless nights.”
The album is the latest from Rockabye Baby, a music company that evidently specializes in reformatting popular songs into lullabies for babies.
And actually, this isn’t even the first album of JT lullabies on the market: A different CD with some of his earlier songs transformed into lullabies was released back in 2013. And if Justin Timberlake isn’t what you want, they also offer lullaby albums for bands ranging from the Beatles to Coldplay.
Now, it remains to be seen whether or not “Señorita” (track 6) will translate well into a bedtime ditty. The album also features choices such as “Can’t Stop the Feeling,” “Sexyback” (sorry, what?) and “Rock Your Body.” Honestly, this sounds more like an album I want to rage to, not nap to.
JT’s son, Silas, was born in 2015, and the mega-star has been candid about how stressful it has been. And in a particularly memorable interview with People magazine, he told the world, “I’ve never slept less and dealt with more poop, and been so excited about it.”
Here’s little Silas from behind with JT’s leading lady, Jessica Biel, in an Instagram picture the singer shared on Mother’s Day with the caption: “M.I.L.F. Alert!!!! Happy Mother’s Day to this AMAZING MOM AND WIFE. And, to all of the Mother’s out there… You keep the World turning!! Hope every single one of you has an amazing day! –JT”
Here’s hoping Silas likes this new take on his dad’s music. Something tells us he probably will!
