7 Justin Timberlake Music Videos That Are Guaranteed To Brighten Your Day, Because Everyone Loves A JT Throwback
Let's face it: Justin Timberlake is a man of many talents. After rising to fame as a teen heartthrob in what is arguably the best boyband of all time (I'm talking about *NSYNC, of course), Timberlake went on to showcase his inimitable musical skills as a solo artist, where he bestowed us with addictive hits like "Sexyback" and "Suit & Tie." The "Not A Bad Thing" singer has also gleaned success as an actor, where he exercised his comedy chops in films like Bad Teacher and had a particularly impressive turn as Sean Parker in The Social Network. Along with this repertoire, Timberlake has become a favorite Saturday Night Live host, and his bromance with Jimmy Fallon is one of the best celebrity friendships we could ever ask for. Seriously, is there anything this guy can't do?
Timberlake's musical career has spanned over a decade, and with that career has come a slew of awe-worthy music videos that are as eclectic as Timberlake himself. Whether you want the gushy warmth that comes with a sweet love story or just want an excuse to dust off your dancing shoes, there is a Timberlake music video that can turn your frown upside-down. Without further adieu, let's take a look at seven Timberlake music videos that are guaranteed to brighten your day:
1. "Take Back The Night"
Whether Timberlake is performing for thousands of people or waiting for Chinese takeout, this video proves that every pair of shoes the singer owns can be deemed "dancing shoes."
2. "Suit & Tie"
It's pretty impossible to have a bad day when beholding the glory that is a suited up Timberlake and Jay-Z.
3. "Rock Your Body"
If you need motivation to go out dancing, look no further than this music video.
4. "Like I Love You"
All hail vintage Timberlake! Also, forget the clubs, because — as we learned from this video — 7-Eleven is apparently the hottest spot in town.
5. "Not A Bad Thing"
"Thank you for sharing all your love stories and showing me a million reasons why love is not a bad thing. This is for you." Timberlake's heartwarming intro to the "Not A Bad Thing" music video was accompanied by the hashtag #NotABadLoveStory, as Timberlake had previously invited fans to share their love stories via Twitter and Instagram. The video features Timberlake during a live performance and is peppered with fan stories of romantic love, platonic love, and loving oneself. The poignant video is sure to make you tear up in the best way.
Oh, he brings sexy back, alright! Watch Timberlake dance and take on some kind of covert mission (one that I have yet to completely figure out) and you're guaranteed to have a good day.
7. "I Want You Back"
I don't care if the only time *NSYNC reunites is for weddings or brief MTV Video Music Awards performances — they remain my favorite boy band of all time! Take a walk down a road marked "nostalgia" and watch this glorious video to brighten your day, and then, when you're done, press play on all the other great Timberlake videos; no matter the song, the year, or the hairstyle, the musician never fails to make us smile.
