Founded in 2006 by Megastar Justin Timberlake and his Best Friend Trace Ayala, Fashion Label William Rast is set to debut at The Bay in Toronto and the Duo are set to ring-in the occasion with an appearance at the Queen Street location on Tuesday, July 16, 2013 at 4:00 PM. The Line collaborated in late 2010 with Discount Retailer Target in the U.S. for an exclusive Collection.
The Store Tweeted earlier this evening about the Appearance and although we’re unsure if it’s an Autograph Signing or simply an appearance, Timberlake appears to have a gap in his schedule that day as he co-headlines with Jay-Z on their The Legends of Summer Tour with a Show at Rogers Centre the following night, giving him an opportunity to promote the Line. Furthermore, this is an ultra-rare chance for Toronto Fans to see Timberlake up-close!
He’s definitely on fire! Earlier this year when Justin Timberlake was set to make that big Comeback of his, already R&B Lovers were drawing parallels to his resembling of Robin Thicke‘s sound. So how does Thicke counter back? He delivers a fresh, new Sound thanks to the expertise of Pharrell Williams, who single-handedly is defining our Airwaves this Summer with not one, but two Hits in Blurred Lines (Thicke ft. T.I.) and Get Lucky (Daft Punk).
Actually, you can make that three now with this brand new Single, Give It 2 U, which already is buzzing with controversy with its racy, racy Lyrics. The Collaboration between Thicke and Rapper Kendrick Lamar undoubtedly is stellar and highly danceable even if it does pose some challenges for Adult Pop/Top 40 Radio, which both have embraced current Billboard Hot 100 Chart-topping Blurred Lines. In fact, that Track has reached number one in over 28 countries – a certified International Smash, appearing as though it won’t be giving-up its dominance any time soon.

Amazing! If there was any doubt Justin Timberlake‘s back and bigger than ever, his The 20/20 Experience shakes-up the Music Industry, proving that when a Record Label wants to invest in an Album, Consumers will buy. And buy they did!
The slickly-packaged Disc released just last Tuesday has sold over 968k copies in its debut, placing at the top of the U.S. Billboard Hot 200 Chart and even more impressively, he did it without gimmicks like an array of Special Editions. Target had an Exclusive Edition, but even that Retailer was number two to iTunes in sales.
In contrast to his previous two Solo Efforts, 2002’s Justified sold 439k copies in his first week and 2006’s FutureSex/LoveSounds sold 684k copies.
Although impressive, Timberlake‘s The 20/20 Experience still doesn’t surpass Taylor Swift‘s Red, which sold 1.2 million its first week – last year’s biggest debut, eventually going on to sell 3.1 million copies.
Right in-time for the release of The 20/20 Experience, a brand new video for Justin Timberlake‘s second Single Mirrors surfaces. Dedicated to his Grandfather and Grandmother William and Sadie, the former whom Timberlake also dedicated his Fashion Line William Rast to, the 8:21 minute Clip showcases various stages in the Couple’s relationship. The Woman, now a Widow, reflects painfully upon their happy and troubled times. Timberlake finally joins the Video late, seen in a dance sequence against a backdrop of you guess it, mirrors.
Directed by brilliant Toronto Director Floria Sigismondi who brought us amazing Feature The Runaways, I still am a firm Believer the Track and Video needs to be edited down just a bit. Although the emotions are there, there is a lot going on and the length takes away from its poignancy and that “Gotta see it again” impact a great Video should have.
A huge fan of the Track nonetheless, which continues its rise up the Billboard Hot 100 and Canadian Hot 100 Charts.
It’s been seven years since we’ve had a new Album from Justin Timberlake. Hot off his stellar job hosting Saturday Night Live this weekend, Sony Music Canada and Mr. Will Wong want to give Canadian Readers a chance to win a copy of his third studio album, The 20/20 Experience. The Disc reunites with Pop Icon with longtime Collaborators Timbaland and J-Roc Harmon and if his first two Singles Suit & Tie (ft. Jay-Z) and Mirrors are any indication of how great it is, this Album really can’t come soon enough!

So pretty much everyone on the Internet is raving about Justin Timberlake‘s fantastic fifth time hosting Saturday Night Live and despite the dependency on lewd humour, there never was a dull moment as he charmed his way through Pre-taped/Live Sketches and Performances of his latest two Singles.
Timberlake started off tonight with a Cold Open, doing a parody of Elton John performing Candle in the Wind in memory of recently-deceased Venezuelan President, Hugo Chavez. “Goodbye Hugo C…”, he sang. The Actor/Singer/Songwriter/Entrepreneur was joined also by Saturday Night Live Veterans, who like him previously hosted five times including Alec Baldwin, Tom Hanks, Chevy Chase, Martin Short, Candace Bergen, Steven Martin and Dan Aykroyd. The latter two even came back to reprise their roles as the sleazy Festrunk Brothers in a Dating Game Sketch enticing Vanessa Bayer, while Timberlake and Andy Samberg too tried seducing her with some raunchy ’90s-inspired R&B. Think Dick in a Box, but like a fivesome.
Also brought back was his Liquorville Sketch, which prior saw him perform alongside Lady Gaga. This time around he dressed-up as a giant piece of Tofu promoting Veganism, with his own takes of Chic‘s Le Freak, Rihanna‘s We Found Love, Vanilla Ice‘s Ice Ice Baby with Vegan-friendly Lyrics.He capped it all off with his own take on Internet Viral Sensation The Harlem Shake but instead, The Vegan Shake. Amazing!
Watch it below:
With his third solo Disc The 20/20 Experience due later this month, Timberlake made us remember why it is we love him so with stunning renditions of Suit & Tie (joined on-stage by Jay-Z) and Mirrors, both drawing loud cheers, sounding impeccable backed by The Tennessee Kids Band.
Just when we thought the laughs weren’t big enough, a Video Sketch of a fictitious Series with Nasim Pedrad titled She’s Got a Dick, where Timberlake‘s Character has to come to terms with the Woman he loves having some “surprise” male anatomy. Keenan Thompson also appears on the Sketch curiously questioning Timberlake about its size.
Sublime.Justin Timberlake‘s brand new Video for Suit & Tie ft. Jay-Z was just released earlier today and the David Fincher-directed Clip looks stunning. Shot all in black and white, the Video exudes the same timeless elegance the Track possesses. And if there was any doubt JT truly was back, it is performing amazingly well, peaking at number three on the Canadian Hot 100 and at number four on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100. Without a doubt, we will see it ascension to number one in no time.
Watch the Video for Suit & Tie below:
Although I like Suite & Tie a lot, I absolutely love Mirrors, the second single from forthcoming The 20/20 Experience.
Okay, now I real excited of Justin Timberlake‘s new Album, The 20/20 Experience. Fresh off his amazing Grammys performance tonight comes JT‘s newly-leaked Single Mirrors. I enjoyed Suit & Tie, but this is just outstanding. Melancholic, the Timbaland-produced Track is equal parts Rock as it is Urban and all-parts Pop. The Melody has what it takes for the Track the be the Mainstream Hit that Suit & Tie could’ve been, but the 8:00 minute-length here is a bit of a tricky thing to navigate, especially for Airplay reasons. Production-wise, Timbaland‘s rhythmic sensibilities remind us that this still is JT singing, although in a new incarnation.
Jessica Biel must’ve melted at these Lyrics which clearly are directed to her: “It was easy coming back to you/Once I figured it out /You were right here all along/It’s like you’re my Mirror”, perhaps eluding to a rough patch during early 2011, before reuniting and eventually marrying last October.
Listen to the Track in full below:
We’re still waiting on that David Fincher-directed Video for Suit & Tie, this just will have to do for now!
The 20/20 Experience hits stores March 20, 2013 via Sony Music.
He’s finally back and after all that build-up with his Teaser “I’m ready” YouTube Video, Justin Timberlake never ceases to amaze. His latest Single Suit & Tie featuring Jay-Z is a bit of a Throwback to Michael Jackson at his finest, with a deep-groove and an undeniable Horn section. And perhaps a Throwback is exactly what we need in an era of Pop where everything is sounding like tired Electronica.
Timberlake collaborates with Timbaland, Shawn Carter, Jerome “J-ROC” Harmon and James Flauntleroy to winning results and if this is just a taste of what we can expect on his next Disc The 20/20 Experience due later this year, I can’t wait for more!
He’s ready, so he says. After a seven-year Hiatus, six-time GRAMMY Winner Justin Timberlake finally is ready to release some new Music and a Single will be premiering Monday midnight. “I don’t want to put anything out that I feel like is something I don’t love. You just don’t get that every day. You just have to wait for it.”.
I’m thrilled for any news about JT. As long as it’s not another Movie!
