When we heard that Justin Timberlake’s new album was called Man of the Woods we couldn’t help but speculate that he was going to be making country music. That is not the case. In fact, his few releases have been nothing like we expected. In the new video for “Man of the Woods”, Timberlake gets outdoorsy with his wife, goes two-steppin’, and even creates his own harmonies.
The title track of his new album is all about the troubles southern men bring to relationships. “Sorry baby, you know I try, but I’m a man of the woods.” Shucks, I get that. If there’s anything Southern men have, it’s pride and that can get in the way of a good relationship.
Both the song and the video are fun-loving odes to the ups and downs of his marriage to Jessica Biel who is heavily featured in the video.
Shoot, the way she looks at him is inspirational.
The interlude at the end gives some strong N*SYNC vibes.
Ultimately, it’s all about Jessica and Justin.
And we love that.
