The 20/20 Experience – 2 of 2 is the fourth studio album by American singer-songwriter Justin Timberlake. It was released on September 27, 2013 by RCA Records. The album is considered the second half of a two-piece project, being supplemented by his third studio album The 20/20 Experience (2013). Its lead single "Take Back the Night" was released on July 12, 2013. Coinciding with the release of The 20/20 Experience – 2 of 2, the record was packaged with The 20/20 Experience and released as a compilation album entitled, The 20/20 Experience – The Complete Experience. Upon its release, The 20/20 Experience – 2 of 2 received mixed reviews from critics.

The album, as part of The 20/20 Experience – The Complete Experience, was nominated for a Grammy Award in the category Best Pop Vocal Album.[1]

Background[edit]

"I'm the one that sits and is obsessive about it before you even get to hear it. As close as I get to it, I don't think I can physically torture myself that much, year in and year out, and expect it to fulfill me the way that it does and the way that it is right now. You just don't get that every day. You have to wait for it."

—Timberlake explaining his musical hiatus[2]

In September 2006, Timberlake released his second studio album FutureSex/LoveSounds. Critically and commercially successful, the album spawned six singles, including the worldwide hits "SexyBack", "My Love" and "What Goes Around... Comes Around".[3] After wrapping up a worldwide concert tour in support of the album in 2007, Timberlake took a break from his music career to focus on acting.[4][5] In addition, Timberlake worked behind-the-scenes with his record label Tennman Records (founded in 2007) and his production team The Y's (founded in 2008). He also provided guest vocals on several singles by other artists, such as "4 Minutes" by Madonna and "Carry Out" by Timbaland.[5] In June 2011, Timberlake and Specific Media Group jointly purchased Myspace for approximately $35 million.[6] Timberlake promised to put in the work to make Myspace, a once-dominant social network pioneer that "fell on hard times", relevant again.[2][7]

Development[edit]

In 2010, Timberlake's manager, Johnny Wright, began conversations with the singer about working on new music. The two had general decisions about ways to release new music, because according to Wright, "a lot of the physical record sellers were gone, by the time we've got music again we need to think about different ways to deliver it".[8] Wright proposed a promotion based on an application or releasing a new song every month. Timberlake, however, was not interested in going back into music and instead continued to focus on his film career.[8] Around the "late part of May/first week in June" 2012, Timberlake asked Wright to dinner and revealed to him that he had spent the last couple of nights in studio with Timbaland working on new material. Wright was shocked at the revelation, telling Billboard magazine that he "wasn't prepared for that."[8] The two immediately began marketing plans for how the album should be promoted and when it should be released. Ultimately, they agreed to "to do this in a shorter period of time, so let's put the single out and [release the album] seven or eight weeks after that – make it a short window, and because we have such a short window, we have to make a big impact."[8]

Subsequently, in August 2012, producer Jim Beanz reported that Timberlake started working on his new music project.[5] However, at that time, shortly after the announcement, Timberlake's publicist revealed that there were no current plans for a new Timberlake album, affirming instead that Timberlake was working with Timbaland on songs for his upcoming project Shock Value III.[5] After the release of The 20/20 Experience, Wright confirmed that the album was finished in the middle of July and described it as a "fast record". Timberlake had four weeks to record the whole material, because he had to shoot his scenes for the film Runner Runner.[8] Although, originally planned for release in October 2012, the album's date was postponed because of the singer's wedding with actress Jessica Biel.[8] Wright stated that although in the project were involved artists who are also primarily Timberlake's friends it was tough keeping the album a secret, making them use codenames for the project.[8] During an interview with American radio and television host Ryan Seacrest, Timberlake explained the meaning behind the album's title saying, "It more or less came out of I was playing some of the stuff for my friends and they would come in and out of the studio and I'd say, 'What do you think of this?' And my best friend said, 'This is music that you can see,' and for some reason that stuck with me."[9]

Release[edit]

On March 16, 2013, record producer and drummer for The Roots, Questlove announced that Timberlake was planning to release a follow-up record to The 20/20 Experience in November. He referenced the album's ten song track listing and title by saying, "10 songs now...10 songs later = 20 vision."[10] Affirming Questlove's comments, album co-producer Jerome "J-Roc" Harmon revealed that the follow-up will consist of outtakes from the original album, as well as new material from upcoming studio sessions. Harmon revealed: "Before we came to the 10 [songs on The 20/20 Experience] that he wanted and the two bonus tracks, we had over 30, 40 tracks. So I think he's going to go in, and we're going to take some of the stuff that we've already done, and of course create more music at the same time."[11] Timberlake announced on May 5 that his fourth studio album, The 20/20 Experience: 2 of 2, would be released on September 30.[12]

The 20/20 Experience: 2 of 2 was made available for pre-order on the iTunes Store on July 12, 2013.[13] The record will include eleven tracks, in addition to an unannounced "special surprise".[14] Timberlake began announcing the album's track listing through a series of Instagram videos on August 14, 2013.[15] On August 27, 2013, Timberlake revealed the two features of the album. One is frequent collaborator Jay-Z on the song "Murder", and the other is rapper Drake on the song "Cabaret".[16] On September 24, 2013, the album was released for free streaming on iTunes in its entirety.[17]

Singles[edit]

"Take Back the Night" was released as the album's lead single on July 12, 2013, after being teased in a video two days before.[18][19] It was made available for digital download on iTunes Store along with the album's pre-order.[13] The music video for "Take Back the Night" was shot on July 18, 2013 in New York City and released on July 30, 2013.[20][21] It was directed by Jeff Nicholas, Jonathan Craven and Darren Craig who the first two previously directed the music video for "Tunnel Vision" from The 20/20 Experience (2013).[21] Commercially, it was a moderate success and managed to reach the top forty positions in eight countries.[22] It reached number 29 on the US Billboard Hot 100,[22] and number 22 on the UK Singles Chart.[23]

"TKO" was released as the second single from the album on September 20, 2013.[24] The music video was released on October 29, 2013. It was directed by Ryan Reichenfeld and Timberlake's love interest in the video is played by Riley Keough. The single reached number 37 on the US Billboard Hot 100,[22] and number 58 on the UK Singles Chart.[23]

"Not a Bad Thing" was released to radio as the third official single off the album on February 25, 2014.[25] So far, the song has peaked at number 8 on the Billboard Hot 100.[26]

Promotion[edit]

To promote The 20/20 Experience and 2 of 2, Timberlake announced on May 5, 2013 that he would embark on The 20/20 Experience World Tour, his second concert tour on a global scale.[27] Promoted primarily by AEG Live, the tour will debut on October 31, 2013 in Montreal, just two months after the Legends of the Summer tour concludes. Twenty-two additional dates were also announced across Canada and the United States, ending on February 16, 2014 in Chicago, Illinois. Several dates are available for pre-sale for members of The Tennessee Kids, Timberlake's official fan club. Timberlake's official website has noted that, while still unannounced, additional dates in Europe, South America and Australia will follow.[27]

The 20/20 Experience – 2 of 2 received generally mixed reviews from music critics. At Metacritic, which assigns a normalized rating out of 100 to reviews from mainstream critics, the album received an average score of 60, based on 27 reviews.[38] In his review for the Chicago Tribune, Greg Kot wrote that it could have been a neat album of clever pop music had it been edited down.[29] Kyle Anderson of Entertainment Weekly felt that the songs are too long and excessively unfocused, particularly "Only When I Walk Away".[30] Stephen Carlick of Exclaim! said that it is less consistent than its predecessor, even though there are some successful pop songs.[31] Pitchfork Media's Ryan Dombal found Timberlake's pick up lines unpleasant and angst disingenuous, and accompanied by recycled production.[35] Spin magazine's Jason King said that the album is somewhat disappointing because it lacks anything as immediate as "Let the Groove Get In" or as vibrant as "Pusher Love Girl" from the first album.[37] Andy Gill of The Independent was not surprised by its inferiority because it used outtakes from the sessions for The 20/20 Experience.[39] Al Horner of NME said that the overlong songs pass tediously as "pieces from the cutting-room floor cobbled together on the cheap".[40]

In a positive review, Brice Ezell of PopMatters viewed the album as an improvement over its predecessor because the songs have more compelling pop structures.[41] Annie Zaleski of The A.V. Club said that it benefited from Timberlake's additional time in the studio: "Timberlake reined in his musical vision just enough to make this album more focused and engaging—but didn’t lose sight of his desire to take chances."[42] Slant Magazine's Eric Henderson found it more believable than the first album because of how "its subject matter goes further into the disquieting root of what it means to be obsessed with a celebrity (Jackson) who was himself already intensely obsessed with his own persona."[43]

Commercial performance[edit]

The album debuted at number one on the US Billboard 200 chart, with first-week sales of 350,000 copies in the United States.[44] In its second week the album sold 70,000 more copies, bringing its total album sales to 420,000.[45] As of June 18, 2014, the album has sold over a million copies in the United States.[46]

Although the album was number one at the midweek stage on the UK Albums Chart, it debuted at number two, behind US group Haim's debut album Days Are Gone, breaking Timberlake's streak of UK number one albums.[47]
