Here’s What We Know So Far About Justin Timberlake’s – Man Of The Woods!

Releasing February 3rd, MOTW, is where you can find Justin in life!

“This album is really inspired by my son, my wife, my family, but more so than any other album I’ve ever written, where I’m from…And it’s personal.”

The album trailer shows JT collab’ing with old homies Pharrell and Timbaland…while revealing glimpses of the album sounds!

If you haven’t yet heard or seen the first single from MOTW, ‘Filthy’…catch up below but keep in mind, the song should be played VERY LOUD!

#4 Favorite of 2017: METTE TOWLEY

Pharrell calles Mette a “psychic force” and for good reason because Mette is magical!

The dancer lit up N.E.R.D‘s music videos LEMON and 1000 but has been working with Pharrell since 2014….

“I had a woman DM me on Instagram saying how much she appreciates that the video isn’t exploitative and is about [subverting] the male gaze with full-on feminine strength and fury…”

“I’ve never felt a stronger sense of femininity…I have a very womanly physique and I love the juxtaposition with the buzz cut. My body [has a] whole new silhouette.”

#5 Favorite of 2017: SZA Elevates R&B!

Oh no she didn’t…OOH YES SHE DID…Oh no she didn’t…SHE’S GONNA KEEP DOING IT AGAIN!

Hailed as the voice of a generation, SZA debuted her masterpiece Ctrl this past June.

Diving deeper than sex, love and dating, Ctrl is SZA accepting herself through fears, insecurities and doubts.

Being a woman at any age can get challenging and SZA captured it without being a victim!

“I’m down to do whatever for you. Like, I’ll create more content for you. I’ll try to give you uplifting things. I’ll tell you the truth because, like, you deserve it…”

Her latest video, The Weekend, talks about being a side chick in a NON-shameful way… 

Thank you SZA for giving us our favorite album this year!!!

#6 Favorite of 2017: CARDI B

A post shared by Cardi B Official IG (@iamcardib) on

Climbing a debut single to #1 in this country is no easy feat…but a “regular, degular, shmegular girl from the bronx” made it happen!

Cardi’s debut single ‘Bodak Yellow‘ was important this year because the last time a solo woman ascended these charts…it was year 1998.

More importantly we need Cardi B in Hip-Hop because she…

“…suggests a new lane for female rappers—one that has little to do with seeking permission from male gatekeepers, pandering to white culture, or criticizing other women for their sexuality. It is about finding an audience on your own terms…”

Bey racked up $105 million this year despite NOT releasing any albums!

Take care of me

I belong to you, you, you
I belong to you

#10 Favorite of 2017: YOUNG M.A

“…Never be afraid to be yourself. I understand I inspire a lot of my supporters but I don’t want you to feel like you want to be “like me” or “like her” or “like him” or “like them” NO! Be “LIKE YOU” it’s ok! Don’t have no shame in that! People opinions only matter when you allow them to matter.. Love you! Embrace you! Accept you! And I promise you will feel so FREE! And everything else in life will just come natural! Acceptance for thyself is everything! Once you have that you have control of you! 🙏🏽 That’s your gift in life! Bless up! #YoungMA#WALK…”
