Justin Timberlake – Take Back The Night [music]
After sticking close to home earlier this year for the “Suit & Tie” video — which included a black-and-white performance sequence shot at the Hollywood Bowl — the L.A.-based pop superstar touches down in New York City in the just-released clip for his new single, “Take Back the Night.”
To be fair, the song does have its own melody, even if it’s one that clearly recalls the King of Pop’s work in his “Thriller” heyday.
Such a striking resemblance in a bass line also can be heard on Robin Thicke’s smash single “Blurred Lines.” That song uses the bass figure from Marvin Gaye’s old hit “Got To Give It Up.” But that’s a credited sample.
The song is the first sampling from “The 20/20 Experience — 2 of 2,” which is due out Sept. 30 and, as the title suggests, will serve as a sequel to the blockbuster comeback album Timberlake put out in March.
