After announcing his album, Man of the Woods, would be deeply personal and reflect his upbringing, fans immediately began to speculate if Justin Timberlake would have Chris Stapleton featured on the album. It didn’t take long for JT to announce that Stapleton would, in fact, be featured on the track, “Say Something” and that it would be one of the first four songs released before the full album is available.

From afar, Timberlake and Stapleton seem to be worlds apart when it comes to musical styling, but after their 9-minute long performance at the 2015 CMA Awards it was obvious the two had much more in common than meets the eye, plus their working chemistry is undeniable.


“Say Something” is definitely more country than the other two releases, but that’s because of Stapleton. The claps are canned and the beats are all electronic.

[Verse 1: Justin Timberlake]
Everyone knows all about my direction and in my heart somewhere
I wanna go there, but still I don’t go there

[Chorus: Justin Timberlake]
Everybody says “say something”
Say something, say something
Let’s say something, say something
I don’t wanna get caught up in the rhythm of it
When I can’t help myself, no, I can’t help myself, no, no
Caught up in the rhythm of it
No I can’t help myself, no I can’t help myself, no, no
Caught up in the rhythm of it

[Post-Chorus: Justin Timberlake]
Maybe I’m looking something that I can’t have
Maybe I’m looking something that I can’t have

[Verse 2: Chris Stapleton]
Everyone knows all about my transgression
Still in my heart somewhere, in literally and harmony
You and me, tonight
Whoa
I hear them call my name

Now, the real question is– will Stapleton appear at the Super Bowl and where are these woods JT keeps talking about?
