He may be considered just a pop artist but Justin Timberlake has loved to dabble in different genres over his career. Between R&B and hip-hop, JT has shown how musically cultured he is. Now on the second installment of The 20/20 Experience he is trying his hand at a country-hybrid with “Drink You Away”.
Over yet more production offered up by Timbaland which is reminiscent of the country/rock sound which is dominating radios, JT is trying to do everything to “Drink You Away”. While the latest 20/20 has been heavily scrutinized, it is obvious that Timberlake is again trying to expand his sound with tracks like this. “Drink You Away” may be one of the more forgettable tracks on the album but for most other artists it would be the #1 single. That says something about this man named JT.
