Surprise, surpriiiise. It didn’t take too long for Justin Timberlake to come back to his old roots. Following Man of the Woods, JT dropped “SoulMate” yesterday (Monday, July 2nd) taking us back to that old school sound we all adore.
The song starts with a very bold “summer starts now” from Timberlake over a very low bouncing rhythmic keyboard. The song’s constant similar rhythm sets the mood for a very relaxing and chill summer ambiance.
This song follows the other successful summer jams that the singer has dropped throughout his career. To name a few, “Can’t Stop The Feeling” and “Summer Love” have also been named songs of the summer in their respective year so it wouldn’t be a shock to see this song receiving the same title.
The song was produced written by Nineteen85 (who also helped creating “Hotline Bling” and “One Dance” by Drake) Timberlake, along with Lechas Young, James Fauntleroy, Jagged Edge’s Brian Brandon Casey and Gary Smith.
