Justin Timblerake dropped "Filthy" last night, the first single off his upcoming album, Man of the Woods.
But the new song is more than just that...It also marks a new chapter for the ever-changing pop star.
"Filthy" brings a futuristic sound mixed with electro-funk, which J.T. is known to love. But just like his new sounds on singles of the past—"SexyBack" and "Suit and Tie," to name a couple—this song is bringing quite a spectrum of mixed reactions.
His day-one fans are supporting him as much as they always have, arguing that people have always needed a little time to warm up to his new music. However, others argue the new music sounds too similar to FutureSex/LoveSounds, and some are even going as far as calling it "trash."
With that being said, let's take a look at our favorite comments, GIFs and memes the Twitter-verse has been sharing regarding "Filthy."
Here are some of the people who don't really get the new sound:
And here are those who are all about it:
My favorite thing about #Filthy is JT is making the music he wants to. No pressure to be inherently pop or prove himself. It actually sounds v Future Sex/Love Sounds to me, and uses a lot of the instrumentals he incorporates on tour to transition to new songs.— Kirbie Johnson (@kirbiejohnson) January 5, 2018
People shit on creative artists for doing new stuff. Same people who hated Suit & Tie when it came out for 20/20 part 1 came around. #Filthy is beyond a banger. It?s innovation personified. Embrace change.— James Cibella (@JamesCibella) January 5, 2018
I remember when Justin & Tim dropped Sexyback in 2006. Nobody was a fan of the autotune and funky melody. I feel like they?ve recreated the same vibe, so for now i?m still gonna hype it. ???#Filthy— ALEXIS PRODUCTIONS (@alexist_20) January 5, 2018
