Justin Timberlake – “Can’t Stop The Feeling!”

Justin Timberlake slides back in our music dm’s and lifts our spirits with a new track, and video. Today, the talented actor-singer-songwriter premieres “Can’t Stop The Feeling!”, which is the first single off the upcoming Trolls soundtrack, due out Sept. 23. The visual also features the cast of the Dreamworks animation.

In the video, Justin plays the official song for a few friends and the cast in the studio. Away from the listening party, James Corden, Gwen Stefani and Anna Kendrick also dance to the rhythm of the beat, as they listen in away from the gathering.

Timberlake will also serve as the executive music producer for the film.

Expect a new project from JT in the fourth quarter of this year, since his last 2013 album The 20/20 Experience. 

As you can tell, Justin has been cooking up in the studio…

Watch: James Corden Connects With Gwen Stefani + Surprise Guests For Carpool Karaoke

gwen

James Corden‘s Carpool Karaoke segment has become a mainstay in pop culture. For this Wednesday’s segment Corden penned Gwen Stefani to ride along for his commute to work. 

The duo of course sang songs from Stefani’s catalog before hitting a bump in the road courtesy of the HOV lane restrictions. Cordon was quick on his feet and was able to find someone to join them, enter George Clooney. They were still one passenger short so Clooney rang up a pal who jumped at the opportunity after hearing Stefani was there and who was this pal but none other then Julia Roberts.

The gang was now ready to hit the road again and proceeded to breakout into Stefani’s hit “Holla Back Girl” to which Clooney and Roberts knew the words. After a brief discussion about what holla back girl means which Clooney nailed, Stefani reveals someone inspired the track but remained mum on the details and ends with Clooney hitting everyone with “this sh*t is bananas.”

The ride continues as Corden ask the two thespians what their favorite line from their numerous roles is. Roberts goes with a line from the Oceans series where she says to Clooney’s character, “You’re just a liar and a thief” and he responds “I only lied about being a thief.”

Their hilarious car ride continues while the foursome hit us with a rendition of the Queen’s classic “We Are The Champions,” which they totally nail.

Watch the complete almost 15 minute carpool ride below. The Late Late Show with James Corden airs weeknights on CBS at 11:35 pm EST.

SFPL Music: Gwen Stefani Can’t Stand To Be Away From Her Beau On New Single “Misery”

While you’d think a song titled “Misery,” would be about Gwen Stefani’s split from ex-husband Gavin Rossdale, the latest from the singer is actually about her new love Blake Shelton.

The upbeat track is about the misery she experiences when away from her beau.

“You’re like drugs to me. So put me out of my misery, hurry up come see me,” she croons in the chorus. “I’m thinking things I never thought before. Like what your love would taste like, give me more.”

Stefani has been open about her time working on the new album, revealing that the beginning of her writing process focused on the heartbreak she experienced after her divorce last summer. This resulted in songs like “Used to Love You.” The No Doubt front-woman does promise quite a few upbeat tunes like “Make Me Like You” and the newly released “Misery. When she sat down with Entertainment Weekly a few weeks ago she shared,

“We kind of flipped over to this happy, excited, new phase. And I wrote a bunch of new songs — I want to say four or five songs I wrote within the last three weeks.”

Listen to the latest from Stefani below. Her new album This Is What the Truth Feels Like,  is due out March 18.
