Childhood

Justin was born on January 31, 1981, in the southern state of Tennessee, in a religious and incredibly musical family. In his hometown of Memphis, Elvis Presley and Jerry Lee Lewis began their journey to fame. Justin's father, Randall Timberlake, played guitar in a band, and on holidays and weekends, he conducted the choir in a Baptist church. His grandfather was also an excellent guitarist and even befriended Elvis Presley in his youth.

Justin's parents married quite young and divorced when their son was not even five years old. Soon his mother remarried, and his father also started a second family, in which two more sons appeared. Justin's parents managed to maintain friendly relations, so he never felt neglected and got along well with his stepbrothers.

The boy's musical abilities began to manifest themselves in early childhood. His grandfather taught Justin to play the guitar, and his father often took him to his concerts. From an early age, his idol was Michael Jackson, and often, as soon as he heard the sounds of any of his songs, the boy would start dancing, imitating the pop king's famous "moonwalk".

It's not surprising that at the age of 12, Justin made it to television: first to the program StarSearch ("In Search of a Star"), where he performed simple country-style songs, and then to the children's entertainment show "The Mickey Mouse Club". There he met Britney Spears, who became his girlfriend a few years later, and JC Chasez, his future N'Sync bandmate.

N’Sync

Justin was invited to join the band N'Sync when he was just sixteen years old. Despite his mother's concerns, the young man managed to juggle performing with the group, attending school, and taking acting classes.

The next album from N'Sync, titled "Celebrity", was released in the summer of 2001 and was a significant event in the pop music world. The album's success came thanks to hits such as "Pop", "Girlfriend", and "Gone", all written by Justin Timberlake.

It was in this second album that Justin's songwriting talent became apparent. The single "Pop" won four MTV VMA awards and was recognized as the most successful hit of the year.

Solo Career

However, in 2002, at the peak of his popularity, Justin decided to leave the group and embark on a solo career. This move was seen as rash by many at the time, except for his mother, who always believed in her son.

Indeed, the success of the young singer's debut album, "Justified", released that same year, exceeded all of Justin's expectations, and his fans were able to see that their idol had his own unique musical style. The tracks "Cry Me a River" and "Rock Your Body" were particularly loved by the public. Within a year, Justin had won two Grammy Awards and entered the top twenty of the world's wealthiest and most successful performers.

His second album, "FutureSex/LoveSounds", released in 2006, was even more successful than his debut – the R&B style was at its peak of popularity at that time, in large part thanks to Justin. For this album, Timberlake collaborated with successful songwriter, rapper, and producer Timbaland, which influenced the entire content of the original album.

With several Grammys, 10 million album sales, and a music video featuring Scarlett Johansson, the singer could have considered this year the most successful in his career. However, after a brief break and collaborations with Beyonce, Madonna, and Lonely Island, in 2013 Timberlake released his most conceptual album – "The 20/20 Experience".

This record stands out in the singer's discography due to a change in musical style - there are many measured and long compositions in the neo-soul genre and various sound experiments. Timberlake recorded the single "Suit & Tie" with Jay-Z, and the music video for this track was directed by none other than David Fincher (director of "Fight Club" and "The Social Network").

In 2018, Justin Timberlake presented his fourth album called "Man of the Woods" to the listeners, once again showing himself as a pop performer who is not afraid to experiment with style. For the album, the singer recorded collaborative tracks with Pharrell Williams and Alicia Keys.
