NEWS/Justin Timberlake Rocked in Abu Dhabi May 23

Justin Timberlake is definitely the pop music’s man of the hour! In fact, the first part of his double opus “The 20/20 Experience” was last year’s highest-selling album in the US. Besides, he was nominated for many Grammys this year. Why is Justin's concerts amazing?

Timberlake Loves Abu Dhabi since 2007

If we get back seven years ago to the UAE concert, we find out that was mostly a heaven with greatest hits of that time. In 2007, Timberlake surprised the region with a sparkling set at Emirates Palace. This show has succeeded to prove that UAE music fans are more than modern; then the promoters got the message and since then many events made their way with Madonna, Justin Bieber, Jennifer Lopez, Bruno Mars and more.

Justin Timberlake makes pop decent

Timberlake was the reason behind pushing his ex-band ‘N Sync from sugary material of their early records towards more adventurous territory with their third and final album, Celebrity, in 2001. He teamed up with the young and ambitious producers The Neptunes, which resulted in Timberlake’s 2002 debut album and added a hip-hop attitude to the pop formula back then. His follow-up, LoveSounds and others were released four years later. These songs could have come out today and would still have been praised for the vibrant songwriting. And with the latest album, he demonstrated once again his interest in pushing pop music’s frontiers to a larger extent by adding new elements to the mix.

Makes the most of every appearance                 

Timberlake is not the kind of watchfully scripted television appearance. However, Timberlake’s slots on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon and Saturday Night Live have been the stuff of TV legend! In 2010, Timberlake teamed up with Fallon to condense 30 years of hip-hop history into an extraordinary medley from more than a dozen of artists like Kool and The Gang, Dr Dre, Snoop Dog and Missy Elliott. In Saturday Night Live’s Christmas episode, Timberlake was a musical guest, and the show had the biggest ratings of the year.


Timberlake was well known with braids and bulbous jackets, now it is the suits and ties. He wised up in a way to adopt a new less-or-more classy approach. Since 2007 he started ditching the accessories into more classic menswear items including now his signature on blazers and tuxedos.
